Has anyone here tried out a 1050 Challenger tractor yet? Done some homework on that massive tractor and I sure like it a lot! The very first 500 hp MFWD tractor in the world! Our local Challenger dealer has one on there lot with 250 ish hours on it. A Farmer bought and used it last season and could say a bad thing about it, but for him he had always had a track tractor so he went back to a Challenger track tractor. With that 1050 he was saying he could pull huge equipment at a very low rpm making it very good on fuel bill. I guess that MAN is supposed to be an amazing engine!
I was going to attach a picture but struggle with this drag and drop thing on this iPad. Sometimes it works and other times it does not. Wish I could just copy and paste pictures!
What size of cart and protill? Any idea what these factors weigh ?
Cart is a tracked Brent 1394, could handle more but Iím not a lover of the huge carts. Pro till is 33ft, Iím not positive how well itís gone pull but I think it should be fine at 500 hp. I believe with the weights theyíre close to 40k. I think theyíre 31k without weight.
We actually hooked a 1050 that they had for demos up to our 60ft 3720 with 7950 tank to test. It wasnít enough but I was surprised it actually was able to do the job, even in pretty rolly land. Our 620 Quads even have trouble with that drill (they shouldnít but they do)
