Challenger 1000 Series Tractors

Challenger 1000 series tillageTHIS MACHINE DOES THE WORK OF TWO TRACTORS.

Having one tractor for spring applications and another for the rest of the year can be expensive. The Challenger® 1000 Series can help. These fixed frame tractors are built to also handle the work of an articulated tractor, with the power and maneuverability to handle both grueling tillage work and intricate row crop applications.

  • Horsepower ranges from 396 to 517
  • Weight range from 31,204 lbs. to 50,706 lbs.
  • Higher torque at lower engine speeds for a better return on your investment
  • Year-round usage, from heavy tillage and planting to row crop applications
  • Easy to operate with an intuitive tractor management system
  • Simply a better cost of ownership for serious agribusiness


1042_ne_cropped_web Perhaps the most intelligent feature of the Challenger 1000 Series Tractors is a powertrain unlike anything you’ve seen before. Simply put, the AccuDrive powertrain maximizes engine power at slow speeds. So you can pull the heaviest implements through the toughest conditions, with maximum torque and minimum fuel usage. The key is the tractor’s ability to drive both axles independently.


challenger-1000-management-centerThe Challenger 1000 Series is a highly sophisticated machine that is as intuitive and simple to operate as a smartphone. Key functions are color-coordinated so learning the layout is a breeze. The multi-function armrest provides easy-to-understand control of everything from engine speed to hydraulic functions to guidance and PTO. Pinpoint implement accuracy has never been easier. This ergonomic design keeps all tasks and functions comfortably within the operator’s reach, reducing time and fatigue.


AUTO-GUIDE™: With the Auto-Guide guidance system, you drive reliably and accurately without actively steering, even in difficult reception conditions. Choose a GNSS, Novatel® or Trimble® receiver. Depending on the receiver, numerous correction signals are supported including WAAS, RangePointTM RTX and CenterPoint® RTX. Existing Trimble RTK networks can be used with the Trimble RTK receiver. Plus NTRIP can be used with both Novatel and Trimble receivers. Even without a correction signal, Auto-Guide works reliably for up to 20 minutes with RTK accuracy, using Trimble xFill® technology.

TASKDOC®/TASKDOC PRO: Simple field data management and documentation is critical. The AccuTerminal includes TaskDoc, so you can record relevant data with minimum effort.

FUSE® CONNECTED SERVICES, ENABLED BY AGCOMMAND®:  The Challenger 1000 Series Tractors are AgCommand-equipped with state-of-the-art telemetry hardware. Machine data and real-time alerts are transmitted via cellular and Iridium® satellite network to ensure global coverage, even in the more remote area. Through connectivity and use of big data, intelligent information and insights are shared on AGCO’s pioneering telemetry tool, AgCommand. AgCommand is fully mobile-compatible, so you can access your machine information from any computer or mobile device. Fuse Connected Services is available in two levels. Level 1 provides “Access & Insights” to customers who have the resources to utilize the data and monitor their own fleet using AgCommand. Challenger dealers bring their machinery expertise and years of experience to deliver Level 2, which includes remote machine monitoring, out-of-season inspection and consultation.
