Challenger MT500E Row Crop Tractors
The Challenger MT500E series tractors feature efficient AGCO Power 6.6- and 7.4-liter diesel engines. These Tier 4 Final six-cylinder engines provide great throttle response and torque. Engines feature electronic wastegated turbochargers, an engine performance management system, a throttle valve for quicker warmup, and higher-pressure fuel injection system for cleaner combustion, which eliminates the need for a diesel particulate filter.
The MT500E series is available with a smooth CVT for an infinite number of operating speeds or with the rugged AutoPower VI transmission. You can choose between the upgraded 50-gpm hydraulic system (with the CVT) for better control of large implements, or the 29- or 39-gpm systems with the AutoPower VI transmission.
A new hood and grille provide excellent airflow in and out of the engine compartment. Cooling efficiency is increased in the tractors without increasing the size of the cooling package to maintain visibility.
The setup and information screen is 50% larger with 10 times higher resolution, making it easier to read and operate.
The MT500E has the fully integrated Auto-Guide 3000. This precision farming package helps reduce overlap for increased productivity and efficiency. A Go Mode makes it easy for new users to get started.
The front suspension travel has been doubled compared to the previous model, ensuring that tires stay planted to the ground in any terrain. Independent double-acting cylinders mount directly to the frame, which allows you to adjust the suspension to suit any task.
The series includes five models: MT555E, MT565E, MT575E, MT585E, and MT595E, with 185 to 255 maximum engine horsepower.
