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.

Challenger will check, service then re-build the machine, giving it an extended warranty.
