This isn't an evolution. It's not a redesign. It's a totally new tractor built from the ground up.
Intelligent Farming is doing the work of two tractors with just one.
- Having one tractor for spring applications and another for the rest of the year can be an expensive proposition. Not with the Challenger 1000 Series. These high-horsepower, fixed-frame tractors are built to also handle the work of an articulated tractor. With 396 to 517 horsepower, and with a weight range of 31,204 lbs. (14,153 kg.) to 50,706 lbs. (23,000 kg.), the 1000 Series has the power and maneuverability to handle both grueling tillage work and intricate row crop applications. Unlike any tractor that’s come before it, the flexible and dynamic ballasting options of the 1000 Series enable higher utilization and versatility for year-round applications.
ACCU The shortest way to say superior engineering, superior performance, superior productivity.
- AccuEngineering™, is the smarter, more intuitive and more efficient engineering platform upon which the Challenger 1000 Series is built. From the controls in the cab, to the AccuDrive™ powertrain, to the AccuTerminal™, ACCU is simply a more intelligent way to engineer a more intelligent tractor.
Not Just Raw Power. Smart Power.
- Perhaps the most intelligent feature of the Challenger 1000 Series is a powertrain unlike anything you’ve seen before. Simply put, the AccuDrive powertrain maximizes engine power at slow speeds. So you can pull the heaviest implements through the toughest conditions, with maximum torque and minimum fuel usage. The key is the tractor’s ability to drive both axles independently.
Efficient Power. When and Where You Need It.
- When the engine, transmission, fan, hydraulics and all implements work highly efficiently at maximum capacity, there’s less wear and tear on components and a longer engine life. AccuDrive is designed to exploit the high engine power, keeping speeds especially low in any terrain, regardless of ground conditions. It doesn’t get any more efficient than that.
Easy to Operate and Highly Intuitive.
- Though a Challenger 1000 Series tractor is a highly sophisticated machine, the Tractor Management Center makes it simple to operate. All functions whether in the terminal or on the multi-function armrest are color coordinated to the controls that operate them, and the ergonomic design keeps all tasks and functions comfortably within the operator’s reach, reducing time and fatigue. With one hand on the wheel and one hand on the multi-function joystick, you’re in total control at all times.
So easy to operate, it can almost read your mind.
- The Challenger 1000 Series is a highly sophisticated machine that is as intuitive and simple to operate as a smartphone. Key functions are color-coordinated with the controls that operate them, so learning the layout is a breeze. The multifunction armrest provides easy-to-understand control of everything from engine speed to hydraulic functions to guidance and PTO. Pinpoint implement accuracy has never been easier. This ergonomic design keeps all tasks and functions comfortably within the operator’s reach, reducing time and fatigue. With one hand on the wheel and one hand on the joystick, you’re in total control at all times.
