Challenger, a global brand of AGCO Corporation, introduced a new 9-inch, touch-screen Tractor Management Center (TMC) terminal and comprehensive offering of precision farming technology on the Challenger MT600E Series high horsepower tractors during the 2017 World Ag Expo. These tractors are now available with full integration of on-board precision technologies, including AgControl section and variable rate control, as well as TaskDoc Pro wireless data transfer. As part of the Fuse open approach to partnerships, customers will be able to choose either the NovAtel SMART6-L or Trimble AG-382 receiver to best match their existing base station and coverage needs.
“The Challenger brand is synonymous with power, and these enhancements take the MT600E Series to a new level, beyond physical power to intelligent power,” says Eric Zimmerman, marketing manager, High Horsepower Tractors at AGCO. “The simple, straight-forward operation of our new TMC, plus the full offering of precision farming technologies and choice of guidance receivers are a comprehensive package that will help our customers reduce operator fatigue, implement overlap and over-application of inputs to set new benchmarks for productivity and efficiency.” (more…)
