For High-Horsepower Tractors
The Challenger is the plow for high-horsepower tractors and extremely difficult working conditions.
More bottoms help you plow more acres in less time. The KUHN Challenger’s 8 ½” beam section provides durability during work and combined with its protection system (traction bolt or non-stop reset), ensure a long life with minimal down time. On-land plowing is standard to adapt to your large tractors with dual tires or wide tracks. With the Challenger, you can customize your plow leg protection to best your working conditions.
Features may include:Traction Bolt
Non-Stop Hydraulic (NSH) Reset
- A clean break of the traction bolt, following a force of 5,280 – 8,820 pounds at the plow point, avoids the risk of nuisance shearing. The traction bolt system is an economical protection system that avoids the wear associated with shear bolt systems.
Headstock with Heavy-Duty Articulation
- When a field obstacle is met, a rapid breakaway of the plow leg occurs. Once the obstacle is passed there is an increase in pressure, bringing the bottom quickly and firmly back into working position. The system also acts as a shock absorber in rocky ground, increasing plow life.
- The swift hitch cross shaft is positioned low on the machine for the best possible weight distribution and maximum traction in difficult conditions.
- Moldboards are made of unequal layer, heat-treated Triplex steel that have an increased working life up to 40% over standard steel and a hard wearing surface over 1/8 thick.
