Challenger 765D


We need a good value second hand tracked tractor for next season. Have run a Challenger 765C in the past which was good, but noise levels in the cab were awful. The 765D seems a lot more operator friendly but people say don't touch them as they are unreliable, is this the case or is it just a few niggles that can be sorted out.?

Had one D here from new, full dealer service. Had a new short block and then failed at 5000 hours.
Not as good as the C series.


The c series were very very noisy in the cab. The exhaust stack is very close to the cab and can crack the glass with its heat. RW Crawford has some special exhaust made that were much quieter yet didn’t sap power. C series is last of the cat engines… great to listen to for 20 mins!

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
