Not sure of the Hp of the challenger you are asking about or ground conditions. We run Jd 9520's with twin 18 and 19 yd pans , depending on conditions it puts a lot of work to handle both of these pans. Depending on your planned use for this setup will also give some guidance , will it be for personal use or daily work related? Depending on your equipment available and the type pans you wanting to pull , you can use assistance with a push machine also - dozer , tractor w/ blade, etc. These pans will be a lot of weight to handle driving to dump area , keep them close to the ground in case you need help stopping .
Give some details of work you are planning and it will give everyone a better opportunity to give their thoughts and opinions.
