Challenger Self-Propelled Windrowers: WR9800 Series

The Challenger WR9800 Series of self-propelled windrowers can produce hay faster and with greater efficiency and precision than any competing windrower on the market. WR models use intuitive software that can automate many control functions, making them easier to operate. The electro-hydraulic steering system enables operators to maintain total control of the machine at higher speeds, increasing their productivity.

WR9840, WR9860, WR9870


Challenger Round Balers: 2900 Series

Challenger 2900 Series round balers combine the superior performance of a self-propelled windrower with the low cost of a pull-type machine. The redesigned rotor feeding system pulls the crop into the bale chamber with minimal effort. You’ll experience faster, more efficient feeding of all crops, including corn stalks, wheat stubble and soybean residue. The variable chamber produces consistent density from the core to the outer shell. The advanced stuffer and auger design enables a wider throat opening for enhanced feed capacity at increased speeds.

2946 Auto-Tie, 2946A Auto-Cycle, 2956 Auto-Tie, 2956A Auto-Cycle


Challenger Mower Conditioners: 1300 Series

Challenger disc mower conditioners combine the toughness needed to cut through the most difficult conditions with the high precision required to prevent crop damage. Features include a razor-sharp cutter bar and hydraulically tensioned conditioner rolls that work in tandem to produce high-quality hay in the shortest amount of time. The innovative turbulence reduction roll allows air to escape between the conditioner rolls and cutting bar, which keeps the crop from blowing down before cutting.

Challenger 1300 Series Mower Conditioner Models:

1383, 1386


Challenger Small Square Balers: 1800 Series

Unlike most small square balers, the Challenger 1800 Series balers are designed to move crops in a straight line from the pickup to the bale chute. These “straight chuters” ensure maximum capacity, regardless of crop condition. These hardworking balers are also designed for increased visibility and faster, more efficient roading. The excellent maneuverability enables them to move in any direction through the field with ease.

Challenger 1800 Series Small Square Baler Models:

1838, 1840, 1842


Challenger Large Square Balers: 2200 Series

The goal of any hay baling operation is to get the hay out of the field and into the barn as quickly as possible. The 2200 large square baler series from Challenger enables you to do just that. Key features include a hydraulically driven knotter fan that keeps the knotters free of debris. The low-maintenance chain drive is designed to provide proper timing and reduce unproductive downtime. The in-line design keeps the hay moving in a straight line from pickup to bale chute.

Challenger 2200 Series Large Square Baler Models:

2250, 2270, 2270XD, 2290

Challenger Sickle Bar Headers: 9100 Series/h3>
Challenger sickle bar headers are available in multiple cutting widths. Key features include dual augers, double sickles and one pair of conditioner rolls. The advanced hydraulic roll tensioning system helps maintain consistent roll pressure for effective crimping, ensuring the production of high-quality hay.
