The D17 featured a power-director hand clutch transmission that was four gears forward and one reverse gear. The AC D17 had power adjustable rear wheels, and a traction boost system. With the hand lever clutch it allowed for on the go shifting between the direct and lower drive and a neutral allowing the PTO to continue power.
