Less than two years after the introduction of its MT500 Series tractors, tractor manufacturer Challenger Corp., has set a new benchmark in power, comfort and control with the MT500B Series. The first hint of change is in the new styling, redesigned cab interior and wider fenders. "Customers have to experience the new MT500B Series tractors for themselves to really appreciate the comfort and control," says Doug Durand, Challenger general marketing manager for mid-range and high horsepower wheeled tractors.
