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!

Would the exhaust system be better on the 800 series also. My 855 is noisy in the cab but seems quieter outside. Have a 765 too and the motor is quieter than the hydraulics. Service tech said the new motors are quiet but full of issues. Hard to beat a cat for low rpm torque.
