AXION 800 to take pride of place at Claas stand at LAMMA
After its award-winning appearance at Agritechnica last month Claas will again feature the Axion 800 series tractor at their LAMMA stand in January in the UK.
The Axion 800 having won both the International ‘Tractor of the Year’ and a ‘Machine of the Year’ award for high horsepower tractors at Agritechnica will be Claas’s flagship machine at the event.
According to Claas, it is also featuring at the event new machines including the new Jaguar 800 series forage harvester and the new range of high output Scorpion telehandlers.
The new Axion 800 range of tractors are powered by FPT Cursor 9 engines. Claas say it is the first tractors on the market to meet TIER 4 final emissions regulations. Four models are available, all with the option of power outputs ranging from 215hp up to 264hp.
Class claims its engine management system is designed to maximise engine performance, but not at the expense of fuel consumption. At a recent test it says the Axion 850 averaged just 248 g/kwh the lowest fuel consumption of any 200-270hp tractor tested.
The new Jaguar 800 series will also feature at the show. There are four models are available in the series with power outputs from 400 to 598hp. Class say a new panel design provides enhanced ease of access for servicing, whilst a new cab provides greater operator comfort and visibility.
The machine comes with a new TIER 4i compliant Mercedes engine. Class says this produces greater torque at lower engine revs meaning higher output and lower fuel consumption.
Claas says the Jaguar’s new vista cab. A novel feature of its control system is that the operator can now set a reminder as to when the knives need sharpening or the shearbar adjusting after a set operating time has elapsed.
It also notes that a new quick attachment coupler allows header units from the Jaguar 900 range, to be used.
According to Class, that standard specification includes a larger 1000 litre diesel tank and 130 litre Ad Blue tank, with an additional 300 litre diesel tank available.
The Class Scoripon telehandelers will also feature on the stand. The new series includes six models. Three large ones, the Scorpion 9055, 7055 and 7044, and the smaller 7035, 7030 and 6030 models.
Class say previously the maximum lifting capacity was 4.4 t – the top-of-the range 9055 and 7055 models now increase this to 5.5 t with a maximum lift height of 8.75 m and 7.0 m, respectively.
All models are available as 20 km/h, 30 km/h and 40 km/h versions and have new 4-cylinder Deutz engines.
