Default Tractor

Anyone know where the master switch is on this Challenger tractor, I don't know the model number. I have to do some welding on the flail mower. I can always disconnect the battery's but it would be nice to find the disconnect.

Probably no help, but on heavy equipment it is always on the ground side and fairly close to the battery.

None of the challengers I’ve worked on had a disconnect from the OEM. That’s rare on AG tractors.

Pull the battery cables and keep the ground close to the weld.

Yep Put the ground close to the workpiece as smokingD suggested you will not really even need to disconnect the battery I never disconnect battery anymore. and never have any issues either... but you can just disconnect the ground wire to the battery is all you need, if you feel you must...
