We set out to build a tractor that would exceed the specific performance requirements that large-scale farming operations demand. Mission accomplished. Introducing the new Challenger MT600D Series. The MT600D Series is purpose-built for agribusiness professionals looking for a big-time productivity edge. This tractor is your high-capacity, high-power choice for unrivaled performance day after day, season after season, year after year.
AGCO POWER™ ENGINE
This Tier 4i-compliant engine delivers unmatched power. And coupled with our innovative SCR (selective catalytic reduction) technology you get the unbeatable combination of performance and unprecedented air quality control.
This lets the operator easily adjust the steering ratio to require more or less turns of the steering wheel or the same angle of turn of the front wheels. With this adjustment flexibility, you’ll enjoy quicker turns with less effort.
TECHSTAR™ CVT (CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION) WITH POWER MANAGEMENT
When activated, the engine and stepless transmission technology work together to find the most efficient operating mode. You’ll end up saving fuel, reducing engine noise and extending service life.
TRACTOR MANAGEMENT CENTER DISPLAY AND ONE-TOUCH MANAGEMENT
The intuitive and ergonomic design puts all key functions at your fingertips increasing overall operator productivity and comfort.
OPTIRIDE™ PLUS CAB SUSPENSION
To further reduce operator fatigue, the cab suspension system uses a hydraulic damper and accumulator on each corner of the cab to provide unrivaled ride comfort.
PINNACLE VIEW CAB
The four-post cab design provides more interior space and fewer obstructions for exceptional visibility.
ADVANCED ELECTRONIC ENGINE MANAGEMENT
Enhanced efficiency begins with the sophisticated integration of Challenger’s Electronic Engine Management (EEM) system with common rail fuel-injection. You’ll notice an immediate and precise response to throttle inputs. Plus, constant communication with the TechStar CVT allows you to maintain desired ground speeds.
Now there’s an emission technology that offers the most farmer-friendly approach to meeting upcoming EPA standards without making any compromises in power, productivity or operating costs. Since this technology is a postcombustion process, you get uncompromised horsepower and torque.
When engaged, TechStar™ CVT with Power Management automatically controls engine speed and transmission ratio for unrivaled performance and efficiency. With more than 15 years of research and development and over 100,000 CVT transmissions in service worldwide, the TechStar CVT is the proven industry leader.
• The fewest number of moving parts leads to longer life, greater residual value and less downtime.
• A separate transmission oil reservoir
• A simple push of a button allows you to set four cruise speeds
• You’ll have access to speeds normally hidden between gears
YOUR CHOICE OF OPERATING MODES
In addition to easy manual operation, you have a choice of operating modes that afford you even more flexibility.
• Pedal Mode
• Forager Mode
• Power Management Mode
THE SPEED YOU NEED
The TechStar CVT lets you set two field cruise speeds in each of the two speed ranges. Just flip the toggle switch on the SV1, or hold it down until the desired speed is indicated on the digital display. With SV2, simply hold it down until your intended speed is indicated.
You can set speeds for specific tasks. Plus, once set, you can recall the speed with the simple push of a button. You’ll also have the unique ability to couple A and B engine speed settings with the ground speed memory system. This allows you to adjust both engine speed and transmission ground speed with the SV1 and SV2 buttons.
A POWERFUL FRAME
A rugged pair of chassis rails, specially contoured for tight turns, extend from the front mounting all the way to a mounting plate behind the engine. They deliver more strength and support and serve as a strong mounting plate for a front-end loader, front-mounted implements, fertilizer tanks and attachments.
FRONT AXLE STRENGTH
Standard equipment is simply stronger and heavier. Extra-large final drives allow the axle to handle the largest draft loads and weights with ease, while at the same time providing a 55-degree steering angle for tight headland turns.
ENHANCED RIDE COMFORT AND TRACTION
The OptiRide axle suspension enhances ride comfort and puts more power to the ground. Coupled with the OptiRide Plus cab suspension system, it can easily reduce vibration by 50% or more.
A closed-center, pressure- and flow-compensated hydraulic system provides flow to multiple functions at up to 46 gpm (175 lpm) and 2,900 psi (200 bar). A power-beyond circuit and a load-sensing line are also available, while a fifth and sixth spool valve are optional.
