The V-MAX knife drum is made up of a number of segments. A key benefit of this design is that many of the components are mounted separately and can therefore be changed easily if necessary. The JAGUAR is equipped ex-works with universal knives which allow it to be used in all crops.
Special corn knives.
For corn harvesting, CLAAS offers a special corn knife variant. As stones hardly ever pose a problem during corn harvesting, the knives have been designed accordingly: a thin knife blade fitted at a steeper angle to the shear bar increases the chop quality and minimizes the need for resharpening.
New: Knife sharpening based on throughput.
You can leave it to CEBIS to decide when the knives of the V-MAX drum ought to be sharpened. There are two options for determining when you are alerted that sharpening is required. You can either simply specify a period and select a given number of sharpening cycles. Or you set a throughput quantity, attainment of which triggers a reminder that knife sharpening is due. In this way, you can be certain that knife wear is being managed correctly.
Once the knives have been sharpened, the shear bar should be adjusted. This function also needs to be activated in CEBIS.
