Challenger to Premiere Three New Ag Products at the National Farm Machinery Show.
DULUTH, Ga. -- Challenger continues to expand its line-up with three new groundbreaking products, further positioning the company as a rapidly growing, formidable player in the agriculture equipment market. When the National Farm Machinery Show opens on February 15 in Louisville, Ky., Challenger will unveil the industry's largest production 4-wheel-drive articulated tractor, a line of 45- to 75-horsepower light utility tractors and the new, impressive Class VIII combine.
"Last year, when Challenger introduced the MT875B track tractor at 570 horsepower, it set the benchmark for power in an agricultural setting," says Doug Griffin
The new line of tough, 4-wheel-drive, articulated tractors, the MT900B Series will include four models from 430 to 570 engine horsepower. Common features on all four units include a rugged Caterpillar ACERT ACERT Advanced Combustion Emissions Reduction Technology

ACERT Army Contaminated Equipment Retrograde Team (TM) technology engine, a Cat(R) engineered and tested 16FX4R powershift transmission and the exclusive Challenger Tractor Management Center that gives the operator unparalleled control of the machine and its operation.
For those who need a middleweight champ with a winning combination of power and maneuverability, Challenger introduces its new MT300B Series. This four-tractor series, with a range of 45 to 75 PTO PTO

"The Challenger MT300B tractor provides one of the most complete tractor packages available anywhere," adds Griffin. "Models are available with a choice of two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. Plus, customers have the option of a fully air-conditioned cab or an open platform, and the choice of a power shuttle A power shuttle is an additional unit used in transmissions. It is generally used in agricultural tractors. While the vehicle is moving forwards, the driver can pull a lever that makes it stop and go backwards at the same speed. References
Last, but certainly not least, in the new Challenger lineup is a new Model 680B Class VIII combine. "Customers will find a number of industry-leading features on this innovative machine," Griffin continues. "Among them is the 'largest rotor in the industry.' Measuring 31.5 inches in diameter and 140 inches in length, it allows the 680B to operate at higher ground speeds for maximum productivity in a wide variety of crops."
When you take a closer look at the combine during the Louisville show, you'll also discover a massive 350-bushel grain tank, a 425-horsepower Caterpillar engine and a generous 230-gallon fuel tank. What you won't be able to see is the combine unload at an industry leading 4.0 bushels per second! That's fast enough to shave up to 45 minutes off the daily unloading time compared to similar-sized competitive models - it's one more example of the productivity designed into every Challenger machine.
"Challenger is committed to the ag industry. Cat dealers are committed to the ag industry," states Griffin. "These new products are just a glimpse of great things to come. We are committed to staying on top of the latest advancements in ag equipment and the technologies needed to further improve productivity, operator efficiency and, ultimately, the bottom line."
