CLAAS has combined a series of precision farming and crop optimization functions into one package that amplifies the benefits of each feature into a total package for laser-precise measurement and data collection of your harvested silage that you can take to the bank - and to the bunker!

SILAGE TECH™

The precision package for perfect silage

CLAAS has combined a series of precision farming and crop optimization functions into one package that amplifies the benefits of each feature into a total package for laser-precise measurement and data collection of your harvested silage that you can take to the bank - and to the bunker!

Silage quality and technology packaged all in one.

The SILAGE TECH™ package for the JAGUAR 900 Series forage harvesters is a combination of components that not only improve silage quality, but use the technology to save money with the new innovative insulated inoculant tank to meter the inoculant by the ton or moisture level. The NIR moisture senor is a highly accurate sensor for measuring moisture. The auto chop length gives proven results by adjusting the length of cut based on moisture. Combining that with industry leading 3rd party GPS systems like Trimble / AG Leader / Field View to give accurate yield maps and steering.

Crop volume and dry matter measurement.

Throughput measurement with QUANTIMETER.

The deflection of the upper rear precompression roller is recorded. On the basis of this data, together with the intake width and intake speed parameters, the volume flow is measured continuously.

In order to ensure the highest possible degree of accuracy (tons per acre), recalibrating is necessary where there are differences in crop maturity or a change in variety.

Dry matter measurement with NIR sensor.

Continuous dry matter measurement (moisture meter) significantly improves the accuracy of the current throughput measurement. With 20 measurements per second, the near infrared sensor (NIR sensor) attains a very high degree of precision – ideal for the documentation of harvest data for further use.

  • Measuring range for grass: 23-70% dry matter
  • Measuring range for whole crop sileage: 24-60% dry matter
  • Measuring range for corn: 20-60% dry matter
  • Measuring range for alfalfa (lucerne): 28-35% dry matter

Automatic chopping length adjustment. (optional)

The chop length can be adjusted in line with the measured dry matter content. The operator can preset the adjustment range in CEBIS. With a dry matter content of 40 %, for example, the chop length is set to 22 mm while a 22 % content results in chopped material measuring 26.5 mm. In this way the JAGUAR automatically produces perfect silage for optimum compression in the pit - even in the case of areas where the dry matter content is extremely inconsistent.

NEW: ACTISILER 37 for precise dosage.

There is currently a trend towards a reduced quantity and a higher concentration. The new, optional ACTISILER 37 has been designed specifically to achieve this high-precision task with a precisely dosed quantity of inoculant solution. The control of the dosage, the record of how much you apply and the monitoring functions are all easily managed using CEBIS.

  • Thick, insulated tank to protect bacteria
  • Separate 9.75 gal (37 l) tank for highly concentrated products
  • Dosage is set and controlled via CEBIS
  • Dosage can be controlled by the hour, per ton, or based on moisture
  • Dosage on basis of dry matter possible

GPS Ready.

The CANBus interface, monitor bracket, harnesses, and steering valve are all there ready to connect to your preferred system for GPS mapping and steering.

Trimble®

The CLAAS open architecture structure via the CLAAS CANBUS allows Trimble GPS steering and Yield Monitoring components to plug and play directly into the JAGUAR. The TMX-2050® offers a full-featured display for your harvesting needs.

Ag Leader®

Operations will gain visibility into yield and moisture information through real-time mapping on Ag Leader’s InCommandTM display, convenient data management through AgFiniti® and GPS steering using SteerCommandTM.

Fuel consumption monitoring.

Fuel consumption monitoring provides real-time information to help determine fuel consumption per ton. The information provides a good indication of any loss in power due to dull knives or plugged fuel or air filters.
