1000 Series Tractors

1000 SeriesOne of the newest additions to the current lineup of Challenger agriculture equipment, the 1000 Series offers a combination of raw power and intelligent features not found elsewhere. At the heart of the 1000 Series are the four key components of the AccuEngineering™ platform:

  • The AccuTerminal™ touch-screen control system that puts precise monitoring and adjustment capabilities at the palm of your hand
  • The AccuDrive™ powertrain that provides class-leading maneuverability and a 10 percent reduction in turning circles for improved performance in tight spaces 
  • The AccuField™ Command headland management system that lets you store and recall complex operating sequences, engine settings and more 
  • The Accu-VT™ stepless transmission that maximizes engine power at slow speeds by distributing torque between the front and rear axles      

The AccuEngineering platform isn’t the only thing that’s impressive about the new Challenger 1000 Series. Other key features include: 

  • A six-cylinder, 12.4-liter diesel engine delivering between 396 and 517 horsepower, depending on the configuration
  • A flexible, interchangeable ballasting system that lets you adjust front and rear? wheel weights for improved performance when planting, tilling or doing row crop work 
  • A redesigned operator cab that that features an air-ride suspension, deluxe leather seat and other amenities that provide exceptional comfort, even on a long shift 

From top to bottom, the 1000 Series has been engineered to deliver a lower cost of ownership per acre and, as a result, a faster return on your investment.
