Smaller working width additions
to Claas tedder and rake ranges
Claas says the latest additions to the Volto tedder and Liner
rakes ranges are ideal for medium-to-small farms looking to
run their own machinery and maintain control over this aspect
of their silage and hay making. The new Volto 55 tedder and
Liner 320 rake also bring to this sector of the market advanced
technology features that until now have only been available
on wider, more advanced models in these ranges, according to
Claas. A spokesperson said: "The new four-rotor Volto 55 has a
working width of 5.2m, making it ideal for spreading two swaths
f rom mowers such as the 2.1m Disco 210 or the 3.0m-wide
Disco 3150 or 3200 mower models.
"The Volto 55 is the latest in the Volto range to feature the
well proven Max Spread crop fl ow concept, previously only
available on larger models. Unlike conventional straight tines,
on the Max Spread the tines are angled by 29 degrees, which
has the benefi t that more crop is collected as each arm has a
longer sweep. "Once collected, the crop fl ows between the
rotors in a straight line, so reducing crop damage. This also
creates a greater space for the crop to fl ow through, so helping
increase throughput, but results in a wider and more even
spread pattern, ensuring fewer lumps and more even drying.
Overall, the spreading arms work for 65 per cent longer and
the increase in pick-up rate and fl ow through the tedder results
in higher throughput and increased forward speed. This also
allows the Volto 55 to be run at a reduced engine speed, so
saving fuel." The new single-rotor Liner 320 completes the
Claas range of compact rakes and has a working width of 3.20m.
Its lightweight design makes it the ideal entry model for use
with smaller tractors and in awkwardly shaped fi elds or on
diffi cult hillsides, according to the company.
