The article presents information about AGCO Corp.'s Challenger TECHStar continuously variable transmission (CVT). The TECHStar transmission was first introduced in 2004 on the MT500B Series tractors as an option to the AutoPower IV 32F X 32R transmission, says Adrian Crisp, general marketing manager for Challenger high-horsepower wheel tractors. However, Challenger took productivity and efficiency a step further by making the TECHStar CVT standard equipment on the new MT600B Series. Invented and perfected by a Challenger sister brand, the TECHStar CVT is backed by more than 10 years of research, development and production.
