ECONOMY
AND CONTROL
Developed specially for operation with high sulphur diesel,
the AGCO POWER™ engine’s superior design makes the
best use of every drop of fuel.
Ultimate efficiency starts with Challenger’s Electronic
Engine Management (EEM) system, which controls the
high pressure, common rail fuel injection system and
delivers a precise and immediate response to match
varying load demands.
Four valves/cylinder improve gas exchange with the
crossflow cylinder head ensuring optimum combustion.
A viscous fan drive responds quickly to changing engine
temperatures, providing effective cooling with minimum
power loss.
Power boost is also available automatically
whenever the PTO is engaged, providing the power
when it’s needed most to further boost efficiency.
Operators can pre-set, store and activate two
different engine speeds at the touch of a button.
These can also be set and operated manually
or stored and replayed automatically by the
One-Touch™ headland management system.
Engine power boost comparison

As well as outstanding control and economy,
the Engine Power Management (EPM) provides
an automatic power boost of up to 25hp (depending
on model). Available at working speeds above 6km/hr
this delivers the extra power and torque you need
to keep going in the field and on the road.

EFFORTLESS
TRANSMISSION CONTROL
The Challenger AutoPower VI™ robotised, semi-powershift transmission provides
industry-leading, clutchless operation and control for all MT500D Series tractors.
With AutoPower VI™ there’s no need to use the clutch
to change speeds or direction. Six speeds in four gears
can be changed, under load, at the flick of a lever.
It’s even possible to set how the shuttle responds via the
TMC dash display, with separate settings for how smoothly
the tractor pulls away in both forwards and reverse.
There are ten speeds in the main working range, and top
speeds* of 40km/hr and 40km/hr ECO and 50km/hr (option)
are achieved at low engine speeds (1,600rpm), for optimum
economy for haulage duties and transport. (*Top speed
depends on markets and legislation).
Speed matching automatically selects the best powershift
speed when changing ranges to suit the actual speed
and load.
AutoPower VI™ blends sophisticated features with
simple and straight-forward control. The power direction
lever, mounted conveniently to the left of the steering wheel,
combines three functions allowing operators to use it to
declutch, switch direction and change speeds.

EASY AND
EFFECTIVE AUTOMATION
With AutoPower VI™ operators can choose to control the transmission using
the best method to suit their needs or the operation. Completely clutchless changes
are made under load resulting in smooth, effortless operation and high efficiency.
In road mode all the ranges and powershift speeds are changed seamlessly.
This ensures the tractors always operate at optimum efficiency in the maximum
torque band and is perfect high efficiency transport operations.
Field Mode
The six powershift speeds change seamlessly, while ranges
can be changed, under load and without the clutch, by simply
pressing a button on the T-handle or multi-function joystick
levers to maintain high performance in heavy draft work.
Cruise control
Two pre-set gears – SV1 and SV2 – can be saved and
automatically selected at the touch of a button. Powershift steps
are changed in field mode, while range changes are also made
automatically in road mode.

Driving modes further enhance control
With AutoPower VI™ operators can also choose to use either
hand levers or the foot pedal to control the transmission.
In lever mode moving the power direction lever, T-handle
or multi function joystick forwards or back will increase or
decrease the speed, also changing the powershift speeds
and ranges, depending on whether it in field or road mode.
In pedal mode all the operator needs to do is simply adjust
the foot or hand throttle and the system responds accordingly.
It increases or decreases the speed, while also changing the
powershift speeds and, in road mode, also the ranges.

BUILT ON
STRONG FOUNDATIONS
An exceptionally strong, but lightweight, chassis plays
a key role in creating the Challenger MT500D Series’
exceptional power to weight ratio, which increases
output while saving fuel.
A pair of robust chassis rails, specially contoured for tight turning, extend from
the front axle mount right back to the mounting plate behind the engine, with a long
wheelbase that increases traction and further improves efficiency.
The rails provide a strong and rigid support for mounting a front-end loader, front
linkage and other attachments.
The clever front linkage design allows equipment to be closely coupled to the tractor
and offers lift capacities up to 4t. As well as increasing stability it also permits both
a front linkage and loader to be fitted at the same time.
12
Offering +/- 11° of oscillation and
a 55° steering angle, the standard,
mechanically driven front axle combines
superb manoeuvrability with high traction.
It can be engaged manually, under load,
at the touch of a button or set to engage
and disengage automatically, according
to speed and steering angle.
The OptiRide front axle suspension
option permits higher road speeds and,
by keeping the tyres in better contact with
the soil, can increase traction by up to
20%. It also enhances operator comfort
and, coupled with the OptiRide cab
suspension, can cut vibration by 50%.
The Challenger MT500D’s sturdy rear axles are built to
handle the heaviest loads and strongest torque. A robust
and reliable flanged axle is fitted to the three models up
to 200hp. There is also option to mount a bar axle,
which is standard on the two most powerful tractors.
All models have true four-wheel differential locking with
manual push-button or automatic control that disengages
at steering angles above 7° and reactivates below 5°.
13
An exceptionally strong three-point linkage coupled with a powerful hydraulic system
and versatile PTO make the most of the MT500D Series tractors’ pulling power.
An advanced closed-centre load sensing (CCLS) system delivers 110 litres/min (150 litres/
min option) at 200 bar for an almost instant response to handle the demands of the most
sophisticated implements. Providing flow on demand saves fuel and power.
Standard on the three tractors above 200hp, CCLS can also
be specified for the MT525D and MT545D models. For these
tractors, less than 200hp, there is also an Open Centre system
providing a choice of 100 litres/min or 57 litres/min option,
both generating a pressure of 200 bar.
With up to four rear spool valves and two on the front,
the MT500D Series is equipped to easily operate the widest
range of implements with high hydraulic demands.
Front- and rear-mounted combinations are handled simply
and easily by AGCO’s exclusive Dual Control system - an option
on the Efficient models. This automatically raises and lowers
the implements at pre-set distances. This eases the load on
the operator and increases output.
Another unique feature, Trailed Implement Control (TIC),
monitors wheelslip to provide draft control for trailed and semimounted machines. Both systems can be incorporated into the
One-Touch™ sequence for completely automated operation.
14
Heavy loads are handled with ease by the robust linkage,
providing lift capacities up to 8,100kg on the MT525D and
MT545D models and 9,300kg on the tractors above 200hp.
The TMC terminal, which is an option on Efficient models,
offers simple finger-tip operation and control for the Electronic
Linkage Control (ELC). This provides a comprehensive range
of settings, which can all be included into the One-Touch™
headland management system, which relieves the operator
of many repetitive tasks on the turn.
A wide range of PTO speeds are available to suit all machines
and applications with an Economy option allowing engine
speeds to be cut by 18%. The optional front PTO further
increases versatility.
15

The quiet, cool and comfortable MT500D panoramic cab is equipped to the highest
specification with easy to use controls allowing operators to make the most of the
tractors’ performance potential.
A new cab structure, with optional OptiRide mechanical
suspension, offers great visibility through its curved front
windscreen and is equipped with a new slim, Instrument
Panel and adjustable steering column.
The standard Air-Ride, suspended seat swivels 10°
to the left and 20° to the right, while the optional SemiActive seat offers even greater comfort. Air conditioning
is standard.
The new Tractor Management Center™ (TMC) and Right
Hand Pillar give operators complete control with all levers
and switches falling to hand easily.
Efficient specification tractors come equipped with the
TMC Armrest, which includes a T handle transmission
control lever at the front, fingertip spool valve buttons to
the side along with the linkage controls. Further buttons
operate the transmission, engine and One-Touch™
headland management system.
A new Multi Function Lever option sits next to the
transmission lever on the TMC Armrest. The obvious
choice for loader work, it not only operates the spool
valves or the loader, but also has buttons to change
direction and gears.
The colour touch-screen TMC display option for Efficient
models, allows operators to monitor and control a vast
range of functions. These include engine performance,
hydraulics, transmission settings, linkage controls,
efficiency and cost monitoring as well operating the
One-Touch™ system and Dual Control and TIC options.
