Challenger has added a number of new features to their MT700C and MT800C ranges, as well as their 4WD artic-steer MT900C series, including a new worldwide colour scheme of yellow, grey and black.
Claiming to boost productivity and make life easier for operators, new technology includes a new generation tractor management display with ISOBUS compatible terminal and one-touch headland management sequence programming.
The new colour 7 inch (178mm) Total Management Centre (TMC) display is fitted to the front of the armrest and is fully adjustable, and includes 15 keys and a rotary selector dial for full control of ISOBUS equipped implements.
The one-touch headland management system allows operators to store 35 functions for six different machines and the sequence can be programmed and edited on screen without the need for recording the entire process again.
An upgraded hydraulic system with fingertip switches offers the operator more control of flow and timing, and they can now select two pre-set engine speed settings. These two speeds can be included in the headland management system sequence for repeated actions such as work and turning.
A new front light bar arrangement improves night visibility, while the new cab ventilation system offers better airflow.
Tracked MT700C and 800C tractors have two heavy-duty options designed for work in harsh field conditions. The new poly midwheels prolong track life and use a hard-wearing polyurethane work surface rather than the original rubber-coated versions, reducing heat stress and chip damage.
A full-length ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene debris deflector replaces the original steel version and fits onto the Mobil-trac unit, preventing solid or rocks flicking onto the mid-wheels, directing debris away from the undercarriage.
The MT900 range now also come with an optional 14t capacity rear three-point linkage and a further option of 1000rpm PTO.
