The CLAAS XERION tractor.

At CLAAS, fuel efficiency means more than just a single feature. It’s a combination of customized solutions working together in perfect harmony. The result? A machine that helps you squeeze the most profit out of every drop of fuel – the XERION.

Setting new standards – and records.

The XERION 4500 holds the record as the most fuel-efficient tractor in the 4WD, 450-500 hp class. Pair that with new records in power-take-off (PTO) hp (hr)/gallon in rated engine speed (18.33), and you’ve got one amazing combination.

Designed to save fuel

CLAAS’s full family of tractors is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative technology to maximize efficiency and performance.

  • Continuously variable transmission technology
  • Constant torque curve at high level
  • Exhaust gas after treatment fully integrated without impeding visibility
  • Intelligent cooling with fuel-saving fan speed control

Fuel-efficient ballasting

Tractors all too often carry too much weight. But over-ballasting does not boost tractive performance – it simply increases fuel consumption. With the XERION it’s easy to adjust the ballasting precisely to suit the task. The 400 kg ballast plates can be quickly changed and secured with quick-release fasteners.

Keeping it simple saves more.

When the PTO is running at 1,000 rpm, the XERION develops its output at a reduced engine speed of 1,730 rpm. Thanks to the simple drive train design, much of the rated output is transferred to the PTO stub. This enables you to reduce your fuel consumption even when the XERION makes the full PTO output available.

Drive with confidence – and more money in your pockets.

CLAAS steering systems take the pressure off the driver. They show in advance which direction to take, or automatically steer the tractor along the best possible path. Mistakes and overlapping are eliminated. Studies have shown that a modern parallel guidance system can save up to 7% on fuel, machine costs, fertilizer and crop protection products.

Third-party proof

Fuel efficiency is just one of the compelling reasons why you should take a second look at the XERION tractor line. The Nebraska Tractor Test Lab had to re-write their record books in a number of categories after running this high-horsepower tractor through its paces. Intrigued?
