21 Compact Series Front End Loader

Challenge compact loaders can be specified with a choice of standard or 4-in-1 bucket designs which enable you to move and collect soil, mulch and gravel easily and neatly. All models feature mechanical self-leveling.

Challenge compact loaders have been specially developed for 18-55hp tractor ranges. Designed for Australian conditions featuring excellent visibility, durable performance and solid construction that allows you to handle bigger tasks and longer hours. The compact and mid-size loader mechanical level lift system is the best form of operator protection against “rollback” and is designed to meet latest standards for Supply and Manufacture of Front End Loaders. Designed with service access and visibility in mind the excellent visibility to the bucket is thanks to the loaders mid-mount design, narrow boom arms and small uprights. All key pivot points are fitted with heavy-duty bushes. These can all be lubricated from the side of the loader, with easy to see recessed grease points.

21 Compact Series Loader Options

  • Hydro Ride
  • Third Function

Hydro Ride Option

Hydro ride provides a smoother, cushioned ride by reducing the energy transfer back and forth between the loader and the tractor. The kit installs cleanly and does not restrict the operator’s vision. This option is available on 2421 & 2721 compact loaders.

Third Function Option

The third function allows the operator to remotely operate an additional hydraulic circuit on an attachment. This is controlled by the operator from a switch mounted on the joystick.
