Easy to Use

The Challenger WR9800 series of windrowers will help you produce hay faster, more efficient and with greater precision while reducing your fatigue. The technology included on these windrowers offers you with a variety of components that communicate electronically and many functions are executed automatically. The rotary header speed is designed to automatically compensate for different field conditions while the Auto Load Control automatically adjusts ground speed based on engine load and header drive pressure. With the V-Cool feature, you don’t have to do the dirty work – it is design to keep itself clear of debris by automatically reversing the fan every 15 minutes or sooner as required. This cleans the intake screen, eliminating the need for rotary screens or brushes.

Comfortable

The Challenger WR9800 series of Windrowers was completely design to provide a more inviting workspace for operators, especially for those long days in the field. All improvements were made based on actual customer feedback on what they need to increase efficiency and reduce operator fatigue. One such improvement is GlideRider™,  rear axle suspension and an air suspension cab that combine to deliver serious comfort. You can also opt for a cab suspension system that provides a ride similar to that of a tractor cab. This includes settings from 15 to 35 psi. Sit back in comfort on the deluxe, semi-active air suspension seat. This seat includes both cooling and heating features, side-to-side and fore and aft movement, and adjustable hydraulic suspension. On top of all this, the WR9800 series of Windrowers provide you with a quieter ride. Between the lower-decibel Tier IV engines and quieter hydraulics, combined with added sound-deadening material and a thicker floor mat, these cabs make for an overall happier workplace.

Innovative

The in-line design  of these Challenger large square hay balers ensures that  hay is kept moving  in a straight line - from the wide, low-profile pickup through the baler to the bale chute. These balers feature a transverse-impeller  knotter fan that is hydraulically driven and powered by an on-board hydraulic system to keep the knotters free of debris, reducing downtime and simplifying the service process. Proper timing and reduced downtime are also possible with the reliable, simple and low-maintenance chain drives.

The 2270XD and 2290 models of the Challenger 2200 series come equipped with the Optiform™ bale chamber. This chamber is 16 inches longer than standard chambers which results in improved bale shape and ensure consistency of bales over the course of stacking, transporting and storing.

Capable

The on-board hydraulic system on the Challenger 2200 series of large square hay balers allows for easy hook-up and consistent operation while eliminating variables tractor hydraulic systems can pose on baler performance.  The streamlined, one-piece side shields reduce crop buildup by sealing the twine boxes when closed on these large square hay balers. And you don’t have to worry about windrow size with these Challenger hay balers. The Opti-Flow pickup on these balers provides an industry-leading wide, low-profile pickup, ensuring you gather crop from anysized windrow, minimizing crop loss and maximizing efficiency.

Powered by a proven and reliable V3800, 3.8 liter, turbocharged, Tier 4 Final diesel engine, Kubota M Series Low Profile tractors have several features that make them ideal for orchard work, protecting the crop, the operator and the tractor all at the same time.

Standard on the M5L tractor is a right hand operator guard. This guard keeps low hanging branches from coming in contact with the operator and critical controls like the main gear shift levers, throttle, rear remotes or 3-point control.

The hood on these low profile, orchard tractors gently deflect and avoid branches with a sloped, low design crafted out of steel. This also increases your visibility in front of the tractor.

Competitive manufacturers use lighter plastic and fiberglass fenders to protect orchard trees. Kubota, on the other hand, continues uses heavy-duty, wide steel fenders designed to last the life of the these low profile tractors, yet can still gently deflect tree branches.

Challenger 1800 Series Small Square Hay Balers

Challenger’s 1800 series of small square balers are unlike other competitive offering. These in-line balers move crop in a straight nine from the pickup to the bale chute to ensure maximum capacity, no matter the crop condition. You will get bales with minimal leaf loss, improved bale shape and maximum efficiency thanks to the lack of right-angle turns of cross conveying mechanisms other balers have. These Challenger small square hay balers are ideal for equine operations.

Versatility

The compact MF1526 tractor includes a three-range hydrostatic transmission with intuitive operation to allow for faster range-gear selection. The uncluttered platform features separate forward and reverse foot pedals to provide you with precise speed and directional control while the brake pedal was moved to the left side to ensure quicker use of the steering brake so you can work more efficiently.

Both drives can be controlled either simultaneously or independently with the rear and mid PTO levers. Push-button controls allow you to engage or disengage both on the go without clutching or reaching for levers.

The MF1526 features a larger frame than other models in the compact tractor category to provide you with more stability while it’s actual weight provides you with an excellent power-to-weight ratio.

Optional on the MF1526 is a L100E quick attach loader which makes for easy and quick bucket changes.

Ease of Use

With the MF1526 compact tractor, your hard work just got a little easier. The straightforward design of the instrument panel provides you with a quick read of all tractor functions while a simple release hood latch ensures preventative maintenance, such as checking filters and fluids, is easy.

Safety & Comfort

Massey Ferguson understands that the more comfortable you are on a tractor, the more productive you can be. That’s why the MF1526 was design with your comfort in mind, as well as your safety.

Side-by-side control pedals were positioned so that you sit in a more natural position during directional changes, while the semi-flat platform provides more legroom and makes for easier entering and exiting. A rubber floor mat helps to reduce operator fatigue, vibration and noise.

A seat-mounted, retractable seatbelt not only provides for operator safety, it also enhances operator comfort while a light combination switch makes using the headlights and turn signals effortless.
