Donny DeLine, a farmer from Charleston, Mo. is the 2010 Top Producer of the Year.
By winning, DeLine receives use of a new Challenger MT865C for 200 hours or six months (whichever comes first).
Jarrod Woley, of Whayne Supply Co. the local Challenger dealer in Paducah, Ky., awards Donny DeLine and his family with a new Challenger MT865C track tractor. Pictured are Woley, Christy DeLine, Donny, son Payton and daughter Larkin.
The Challenger MT865C Series tractor offers 525 gross engine horsepower delivered by a Caterpillar® C18 ACERT® Tier III engine, a smooth 16F/4R powershift Cat® transmission, and the industry's most advanced and productive track undercarriage technology. Challenger's exclusive Mobil-trac™ system maximizes traction and floatation while minimizing compaction. Infinitely variable gauge settings paired with five different belt options allow the tractor to adapt to fit a wide range of row widths and crop applications. The tractor is fully ISOBUS compliant allowing the operator complete control of any ISOBUS-compatible implements as well as major tractor functions through one easy to use monitor.
