MOUNTVIC 476295 273 Challenger MT665B either
Challenger MT665B
We spotted this Challenger on our way to my sister's and brother in law's farm.

Actually I first saw their Lexion combine and then we stopped to take some photos.

I had a chance to talk to the owner who was telling me that they also do a lot of custom work with their combines and tractors.

Re: Challenger MT665B
The tractor was hooked on to a "steel beam" that they call "La sole". This used to level the soil.


The owner told me that it wasn't a very effective way with this "La Sole" to level soil. He told me that it's like using a small band aid on a big cut. I had the same opinion. He has this equipment to satisfy a demand from certain customers.

He has two scrapers equipped with a laser to the serious land leveling jobs.

Last photo.

Looks a bit like what they call here in Aus a grader board.

What was the owner's opinion of the tractor Tony?

Re: Challenger MT665B
TC he loves the tractor and he also had another Challenger besides this one. He used to own Massey Ferguson tractors.

He did also have some John Deere tractors a 8420 and an 9300 that we saw.

Re: Challenger MT665B
Is there any differens between the ChallengerMT and the Massey 84** series? They dont sell the Challenger in Sweden, but they are nice to look at.

He does not call it "La Sole" that is a Lasole land plane. Built in Quebec. Very popular up here in Eastern Canada.

Very nice photos of the Challenger. Not very many of those in my area.

Re: Challenger MT665B
What´s the meaning of 'LOL'? :-[
The main difference, excluding the colour and shape of nose and roof is that there is a seat available for the Challenger called VRS that adjusts continuosly the ride firmness via a special fluid that varies its viscosity when exposed to a magnetic field.A computer senses the changes in the ride and terrain 500times per second and sends electrical impulses that modify the strenght of the magnetic field... or, more or less, this claims the brochure.
