In New Farm Machinery magazine’s March 2015 issue, on-sale March 2, we hunted down one of the last Cat Challenger tractors in Australia for a test drive.

From now on, Challenger tractors will all feature Agco engines so pull on your Caterpillar work boots, slip a can in your Cat stubby holder and take a moment to reflect as Tom Dickson takes you on a journey of discovery about the Cat Challenger MT865C Crawler tractor. Watch the video review.

Besides the big Cat, our plethora of reviews for this issue includes:

Narelle Burke landed in Bective, New South Wales without knowing anything about farming. Now like many farm women she’s up there with the best of them in partnership with husband Bede.

Together, they have built a sustainable, integrated egg production operation, which has been winning prizes. Read their inspiring story in this issue. Watch our exclusive video interview with Narelle Burke.

Roving reporter Steve Kealy sat down with Harry Green, founder of PJ Green Agricultural Engineering who believes in keeping things simple. Happily, he’s struck a chord with hardy souls who work the land the length and breadth of Australia.

Kealy also finds out more about forage company Seed Distributors which brings together science and technology to deliver seeds with their own ‘survival bag’ of nutrients, fertilisers and inoculants. Read all about it in this issue.

This month, machinery expert Dr Graeme Quick offers an insight into the development and evolution of the horsepower concept.
