Strength And Performance Start Internally
•Precise electronic control of the common rail fuel injection
system provides quicker response to changes in field
conditions and engine load for more power, more torque and
better fuel economy.
•Four valves per cylinder provide better fuel/air mixture,
improved gas exchange and optimum fuel combustion. The
placement of the injector at the center of the head enhances
fuel burn and power.
•A smart wastegate inside the turbocharger automatically
diverts exhaust gasses away from the turbine wheel
when necessary.
•A viscous fan drive houses an internal clutch that responds
to engine temperature to provide increased airflow and
maximum efficiency.
•A single-piece, cast-iron block on both engines boasts
exceptional structural strength and a narrow profile for a
tight turning radius and a superior line of sight.
•An air-to-air intercooler contributes to better combustion and
improved engine performance. Electronic Engine Control
Electronic Engine Management works in perfect unison with the
electronic fuel injection system to provide quick and precise
response to throttle movement.

Speed Selection
AutoPower IV Transmission
PGS 6/7
The AutoPower IV is the kind of versatile, reliable transmission operators have been looking for to meet today’s
demanding applications. With a combination of four ranges and four powershifts, it is easily the simplest
16 X 16 semi-powershift transmission in its class.
Single-Lever Control
FingerTip Power Control
Simply pulse the special T-handle forward
or back to make sequential shifts through
the four ranges and powershifts - all
without clutching.
The three-function shuttle lever, located
on the left side of the steering column,
provides convenient fingertip control of
forward/reverse shuttling, powershift
changes and declutching; leaving the
operator’s right hand free to operate other
controls, such as a loader joystick.
A rotary dial on the right-hand console lets
the operator adjust the intensity of shuttle
engagement to match application needs
and preferences.
Creeper and Supercreeper
For jobs that require full power and control
at the lowest possible speed, all MT400B
Series tractors are available with creeper
and supercreeper gear reduction options.
Respectively, they provide ratios of 4:1 and
14:1 gear reduction for speeds down to .4
mph (0.6 km/h) using creeper and as low as
.11 mph (0.2 km/h) with supercreeper.
PGS 8/9
Whether it is a two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, each model of the MT400B Series provides outstanding strength
and agility to get the job done.
•2WD models feature a rugged box-in-box style axle that can
be adjusted for width in four-inch increments.
•4WD models feature a powered front axle – an integral
component that is matched to the horsepower and chassis
size of each model.
•The cast-iron front axle housing (4WD models only) features a
single-piece design to handle heavier loads, increased shock
loads and greater torsion twisting.
•The powered front axle and on-the go fully locking front differential are
electro-hydraulically controlled by
rocker switches conveniently
located on the right-hand console.
•Wet disc rear brakes provide
smooth, fade-free braking and
longer service life.
Automatic Four-Wheel Braking
MT400B models with 4WD feature four-wheel braking when both
brake pedals are pressed by automatically engaging the powered
front axle. The benefit is increased control, especially when towing
heavy loads.

Economy PTO Option
Forget about having to switch tractors
when an application calls for 540 or
1,000 rpm PTO. Challenger MT400B
Series tractors cover both speeds.
Electro-hydraulic control ensures smooth
engagement, while a digital PTO speed
display on the dash eliminates any
guess-work on actual PTO speed.
A convenient rocker switch changes the
digital PTO speed readout on the dash
after the shaft has been changed.
MT400B Series tractors are an economical
choice for any job. However, even more
fuel can be saved on light-duty PTO
applications like spraying or raking with
the economy PTO option. When engaged,
it allows the engine speed to be reduced
by 23% and still maintain 540 or 1,000 rpm
shaft speed - reducing fuel consumption,
noise, vibration and wear.
Optional Front 3-Point Hitch
Take productivity
to the next level
