FS17 Challenger-MT700E
FS17 Challenger

The Challenger MT700E is a Tractor available in Farming Simulator 17. It is a large tractor, comfortable with both heavy implements and loaded tippers. The MT700E is the smallest tractor fitted with a single caterpillar track (which cannot be replaced), giving it amazing maneuverability. On the other hand, it is slower than other tractors of its size-group. Furthermore, it is the smallest tractor that lacks front attachments altogether, and its engine upgrades are somewhat disappointing - though they do make it the strongest of all large-sized tractors by a small margin.

Advantages Edit

  • Single Caterpillar Track: The Challenger MT700E is the "smallest" tractor fitted with a single caterpillar track - it has no wheels or axles. As a result, this huge tractor can turn on a dime and can brake almost instantly from any speed.
  • Front Counterweight: Instead of a Three-point hitch, the MT700E has a large Weight permanently installed at the front, to counterbalance any heavy weight dragged behind the tractor.

Disadvantages Edit

  • Slow: The MT700E is the only large tractor that cannot reach 52 km/h / 32 mph. Therefore it is more suitable for field-work than for towing equipment and tippers around the map.
  • Weak Engine Upgrades: The MT700E has two engine upgrades, but they are both fairly weak (but also cheap). Nonetheless, when both upgrades are installed, it is the strongest large-sized tractor in the base game, by a small margin. This gives it as much power as a small Truck, and almost as much power as a super-large tractor.
  • No Wheel Customization: The MT700E's Caterpillar Track cannot be replaced or altered. It is as wide and stable as a set of Wide Tires, but not as stable as a set of Twin Wheels, which other tractors of this size often feature.
  • No Front Three-point Hitch: The MT700E's only Three-point hitch attachment is at the back.
  • No Rear Bolt Attachment: The MT700E's only Drawbar (Bolt) attachment point is at the front.
