Gaston Haesen, Product Support Specialist for tracked tractors, gives us a tour of the Challenger MT700C. This is a tracked tractor which boasts more traction than wheeled tractors because of the long surface on the belt when in contact with the ground. The weight of this tractor is divided across the tracks which, as well as transferring power to the ground more efficiently results in less soil compaction.
Fran Van Asseldonk, Sales Used Equipment, introduces the new VIP (Vehicle Inspection Program) for Europe, Africa and the Middle East regions at Agritechnica 2011. The VIP program was launched to help customers start a business with a used machine. Before buying a used machine, customers need to be certain that the specific machine has been checked and serviced and this is what the VIP service offers. Challenger will check, service then re-build the machine, giving it an extended warranty.
