Celebrating Track-tractor Milestone

Celebrating Track-tractor Milestone

Challenger marks a 28-year history with production of an interesting "stealth" design.

During last fall's Agritechnica show in Hanover, Germany, Agco Challenger showed off an interesting tractor. The 438-hp MT775E was outfitted in a flat black livery that caught the attention of event attendees. Recently, a limited number of units for this flagship model started rolling off the line in Jackson, Minn., in that Stealth livery. To celebrate 28 years of tracked-tractors, Challenger is building 28 of these special machines. The first of these machines will arrive in Europe in late June ready for post-harvest work, according to Agco.

Outfitted in black 'Stealth' livery, 28 special edition tractors recently rolled off the Agco Challenger line in Jackson, Minn.

Stealth #1 will go to the United Kingdom and is a Wide Track model. In a media release, Gergely Olah, product specialist for Challenger Tractors EAME, comments: "Wide, long tracks which operate at low levels of slip compared to any other solution, enable tracked tractors to boost field efficiency and cut costs."

As for the "Stealth" name? Luca Cattani, product marketing manager, Challenger EAME, comments: "We picked the name 'Stealth' because it has many associations with the new MT700E Challenger tracked tractor. The ground does not feel or see it as it moves quietly, economically and smoothly and leaves virtually no footprint. Morever, with the Agco Power plant it is so quiet you cannot hear it."
