Challenger's 2014 Lineup
Challenger introduces new MT800E and MT700E series track tractors.
Available in four models ranging from 450 to 590 engine hp., these rugged machines pair efficient AGCO Power 168, 16.8-liter diesel engines with efficiency-boosting features for improved power and productivity. The tractors’ massive 16,000-pound lift capacity three-point hitch, heavy-duty drawbar, and PTO make light work of large seeding, tillage, and grain cart applications.
The productivity-boosting, yet compact design of the 16.8-liter engine with two-stage turbochargers hits the power sweet spot. By generating a greater torque rise over a wider RPM range, you get increased lugging ability and maximum productivity, with no need to downshift or pull the implement out of the ground. The engine design also meets Tier 4 Final emission standards. The engine transfers power directly to the CAT powershift transmission, which routes the power directly to the final drive without a drop box for fewer parasitic losses with increased fuel economy and performance.
The MT700E track tractors are available in three models from 350 to 400 engine hp. These tractors are powered by the AGCO Power 98, a 9.8-liter, seven-cylinder diesel engine. The seven-cylinder design is backed by five years of field testing and features common components across the AGCO Power family line and a 500-hour engine service interval with flexible oil requirements. The base price for the MT700E is $310,542.
Improve Traction, Reduce Compaction
The MT800E and MT700E feature the Challenger Mobil-trac system. The undercarriage design with oscillating mid-wheels delivers a smooth ride and a level of belt contact that puts optimum power to the ground. The simple and efficient design reduces fuel consumption, improves operator comfort, and leaves a lighter footprint.
Key features include:
- Self-contained in-line track system that can be adapted to multiple applications
- Friction drive system that eliminates the need for additional horsepower while reducing slippage
- Marsh Mellow springs that reduce vibration for a smoother ride
The Pinnacle View cab is designed to increase your comfort and productivity. The cab has 360° visibility so you can easily see the tracks, drawbar, and implements. Intuitive controls, multiple seating options, and a powerful lighting package create a productive work environment.
