Challenger - 28 years of Track Leadership - MT775E Stealth Tracked Tractors In Production

29/04/2014 Challenger - 28 years of Track Leadership - MT775E Stealth Tracked Tractors In Production

The new 438hp flagship MT775E previewed at Agritechnica 2013 created quite a stir, and not simply because it is the most powerful Challenger tracked tractor ever in the entry model range. Painted in attractive matt black Stealth livery, the feedback from the market was so positive that Challenger decided to produce 28 units in a ‘Limited Edition,’ one each to celebrate the past 28 years the brand has been providing farmers and contractors with the advantages of rubber tracks.

“We picked the name ‘Stealth’ because it has many associations with the new MT700E Challenger tracked tractor,” says Luca Cattani, Product Marketing Manager, Challenger EAME. “It makes very little impact on the ground as it moves quietly, economically and smoothly and leaves virtually no footprint.”

The Stealth package includes the matt black livery, numbered units 1 to 28 with matching decals. Currently rolling off the production line in Jackson (Minnesota - USA), the first batch will be touching down in Europe late June ready for post-harvest work.

Stealth #1 is heading to the UK and is set on the Wide Track version.  “Wide, long tracks, which operate at low levels of slip when compared with any other solution, enable tracked tractors to boost field efficiency and cut costs,” explains Gergely Oláh, Product Support Specialist for Challenger Tractors EAME. “This is usually the main reason why customers are first attracted to the concept and then find the tracks not only do more work than wheeled machines, but also produce further savings and efficiencies.”

Operator comfort of the MT775E Stealth has been taken to a new high. Providing unmatched visibility and ride comfort of any tracked tractor, Nightbreaker HID lights are now fitted as standard. The remote radio control is accessible via the steering wheel for the heavy-duty radio.  There is also the option of a new vented seat.

The AGCO Jackson factory was reworked in 2012 to include the most up to date manufacturing assembly that ensures the highest industry quality standards. Each tractor undergoes stringent tests and quality management before it receives the ‘Build with Pride’ stamp.
