A Genius in the tractor cab

from Country Guide

A few years ago I had the pleasure of interviewing the industrial designer who styled the cab and body of the first Challenger 65 belted ag tractors, which were then part of the Caterpillar brand before coming under AGCO ownership. Before coming to Cat, the designer had spent several years working for General Motors and brought an automotive perspective to the tractor's design team, making him a bit of an outsider. Looking at the Challenger 65 and other early models, you can see the influence he brought, most notably in the raked-back, car-like angle of the Challenger 65's windshield. more
