Challenger plans to introduce and display its new MT400D Series mid-range tractors at the 2013 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., Aug. 27-29.
“These new MT400D Series tractors are built with the professional farmer in mind,” says David Bercik, product marketing manager. “These handy, productive tractors round out any fleet and are perfect for the daily chores of a busy farming operation.”
The MT400D Series includes five models – MT455D, MT465D, MT475D, MT485D and MT495D – ranging from 90 to 125 PTO horsepower. The 4.9-liter AGCO Power engine that powers each model features wet, replaceable cylinder liners and mid supports. The four-cylinder powerplant benefits from an intercooled turbocharger, four valves per cylinder, high-pressure common-rail fuel injection and electronic engine management. Each MT400D also meets Tier 4-interim emissions standards for North America.
