Bergen walks us through the MT800E, highlighting the brand new AGCO-powered 16.8 litre engine that delivers not just more horsepower and high peak torque, but sustained torque. These tractors have big hydraulic capacity to pull those giant implements, planters and seeders. To service the hydraulic needs,  both  the Challenger MT700 and MT800 lines offer 58 gal/min hydraulics, with the option of moving up to 85 gal/min pump, with a dual pump system. To stay efficient, the second pump only kicks on when tractor asks for the extra draw.

Moving on from the firepower, this line also features wider tracks (34″), some style changes,  improved cab design, no shortage of creature comforts, good visibility for big tools, intuitive controls and more.
