The crop flow.

Straight and fast.

An optimal crop flow is a major factor in determining the daily output. The crop flows in a straight line through the entire machine without any awkward angles. The crop is accelerated further at each step and is centred increasingly by the chevron arrangement of the knives and accelerator paddles. This results in maximum performance with minimum power consumption and makes for highly reliable operation.

JAGUAR 980-930 (NEW)
Consistent chop length is maintained.

The intake.

The intake system of the JAGUAR is powerful, economical and can be adapted to different field conditions. The optional COMFORT CUT drive, which is integrated in the main drive train. Its advantage: variations in the engine speed and, therefore, in the cylinder speed at the same time, are matched by corresponding changes in the COMFORT CUT drive. This results in consistent chop quality at all times. The operator sets the required chop length in CEBIS.

The benefits at a glance.

  • High-performance drive and powerful reversing
  • Infinitely variable chop length adjustment - also automatic on basis of dry matter
  • Maintenance-friendly thanks to quick access to drum assembly

Precise chopping, easy service.

The V-MAX chopping cylinder.

Four variants with no need for adjustment.

CLAAS offers four variants of the V-MAX chopping cylinders with differing knife configurations in accordance with the different market requirements.

JAGUAR 980-930 (NEW)
New chopping assembly features.

Automatically adjustable drum concave.

The front of the drum concave is supported on the mounting block while the rear is secured by pivot arms. As soon as the shear bar is adjusted, the drum concave is immediately positioned relative to the chopping cylinder. This arrangement ensures consistent crop delivery during the entire service life of the knives.

JAGUAR 980-930 (NEW)
New chopping assembly features.

Hydraulically locked shear bar.

The shear bar with the adjustment strip is attached securely to the mounting block by four bolts. In less than 60 seconds, the shear bar with the mounting block is pivoted towards the chopping cylinder which is rotating forwards. This is accomplished by the side shear bar clamp being released hydraulically before being secured again hydraulically after the adjustment procedure. In this way, the exact setting required for precise chopping is maintained reliably.

The Corncracker.

Optimal processing.

The requirements for silage chop length and processing differ widely depending on the individual farm and the purpose for which the silage is to be used. The spectrum extends from extremely short chop lengths of between 3.5 and 12 mm all the way up to the SHREDLAGE® process with lengths greater than 21 mm.


The key characteristics of the MULTI CROP CRACKER (MCC) are its rugged construction and its extremely well sealed housing. Its great advantage is its flexibility. The outstanding accessibility of the rollers allows them to be replaced by others quickly. MCC L (L = Large with a roller diameter of 9.8 inch (250 mm))

    MCC L: conventional chop

    The MCC L is equipped with the familiar sawtooth profile and operates as standard with a speed differential of 30%. This system is used successfully for the production of silage as feed for dairy cattle and for feedlots. Other rollers with a different number of teeth are used in applications where there is a greater need for processing earlage or sorgham silage. Also, different pulleys are available for achieving higher speed differentials necessary to appropriately process the silage.

    MCC SHREDLAGE®: extremely long chop lengths from 21 to 30 mm

    SHREDLAGE®, a technology which was developed in the US and for which CLAAS has now acquired the license, is an intensive corn silage conditioning system for the long chop length range of 21 to 30 mm. Operating with a speed differential of 50%, the SHREDLAGE® rollers have a sawtooth profile into which a counterdirectional spiral groove has also been cut. In this way, the MCC SHREDLAGE® is able to grind the corn kernels thoroughly and chop up the cob fragments completely.

    Leaves are well shredded and the stalk material in particular is subjected to a lateral effect by the spiral groove which causes the thoroughly conditions the hard outer stalk. At the same time, the soft inner core is split lengthwise.

This is how easy precise offloading can be.


Acceleration the energy-saving way.

The accelerator is ideally positioned in the JAGUAR for optimum performance of its task. The crop flow does not have to negotiate any awkward angles and is centered by the chevron-shaped accelerator paddles. This reduces the energy requirement and wear to the side walls.

AUTO FILL. Automatic control of the discharge spout.

Now also with rear offloading.

AUTO FILL is based on digital 3D image analysis. The system takes care of controlling the discharge spout for you. With AUTO FILL, offloading to the rear is now also automated.

In the past, the AUTO FILL function enabled automated offloading from the forage harvester to a transport vehicle running alongside. With the new "Side Rear" AUTO FILL function, automated offloading from the forage harvester is now possible not only from the side but also to a trailer behind the forage harvester – perfect when starting chopping or dividing fields.

In chopping start-up mode, you can easily choose whether you wish offloading to take place to the side or the rear. For automatic filling to the rear, only the desired impact point needs to be specified.

For the AUTO FILL variant, the JAGUAR is equipped with LED swivelling spout lighting. This means that it is also possible to work in the dark while reducing the operator's workload.

The benefits at a glance.

  • Acceleration the energy-saving way
  • The discharge spout: modular design
  • Optional OPTI FILL: extremely user-friendly
  • Optional AUTO FILL: automatic filling of transport vehicles
  • NEW: Optional AUTO FILL with rear offloading
  • Optional throughput measurement with the QUANTIMETER
  • Optional dry matter measurement with NIR sensor
  • 99 US gal (375 l) for conventional silage additive dosage
  • Optional ACTISILER 20 for concentrate dosage
