Central to these new features is an enhanced crop flow through the forager, and
a key feature is the hydraulic clamping system for the shearbar, allowing for highly
accurate sharpening, but also improved chop quality and reduced wear.
Other new features include automatic adjustment of the chopping cylinder
concave, so that the gap between the blades and concave remains constant
for an even blow, and reduced fuel use. There is also the option of a hydrostatic
drive system for the front attachment that enables e icient power transmission at
varying speeds and relative to chop length.
Allied to the move towards more powerful and higher capacity foragers is the
need to quickly and e iciently handle the large amounts of silage they are capable
of harvesting.
In recognition of this, the latest addition to the Claas range is the Torion wheel
loader, with seven models available in three body sizes. On display at the FTMTA
will be the mid-range Torion
. Powered by a fuel-e icient
hp DPS engine
with drive to the axles through a hydrostatic Varipower transmission, this has an
articulated tipping load capacity of . tonnes.
Heading the line-up of Claas tractors on display will be a
hp Axion
. Powered
by a highly e icient FPT Cursor- engine, the AXION is noted for its excellent fuel
economy due to reduced engine speed, with constant torque achieved between just
to
rpm, and a minimum idling speed of just
rpm.
Also on display will be tractors from throughout the Claas Arion range, where there
is now the option of either the full CEBIS touchscreen control, the new CIS+ or the
standard CIS system. Completing the line-up will be models from the small Atos.
