Perfect equilibrium. The ballasting.

Tractive power makes all the difference.

The four equal-sized wheels efficiently convert the installed engine power into equal shares of tractive power. Using the wheel slip display and rapidly adjustable engine droop, the driver can quickly find the optimum setting for every job.

Good distribution.

The tare weight is distributed evenly across both axles even without additional weights. The tractor is easily optimised for every task with a ballasting pack that is available ex factory. 400 kg weights can be installed on the front weight and the rear plate and locked in place.

Front: fixed or variable.

CLAAS offers two different front weights: one is designed to be fixed permanently in place and one can be attached via the front hydraulics. Both weigh 4,000 lbs (1,800 kg). The ballasting can be increased to 7,500 lbs (3.2 t) by adding four additional weights.

Rear: a range of options.

A 440 lb (200 kg) base plate can be installed over the rear axle by means of a simple locking system.  A total weight of 11,000 lbs (3.4 t) can be achieved by installing up to eight additional weights in this way.

A strong attachment. The hitch points.

Ladder hitches.

Two different hitch options are available:

  • Automatic trailer coupling, drawbar load 2.5 t
  • 80 mm ball head coupling, drawbar load 3.0 t at up to 40 km/h

Swanneck.

The swanneck coupling has become an accepted method of attaching trailed slurry tankers. The 110 mm ball hitch behind the cab is designed to take a maximum drawbar load of 15 t, and the ball position immediately behind the cab distributes the drawbar load across both axles. Having the hitch directly behind the cab gives a smaller turning radius and a much shorter combination length than a tractor with a rear-mounted slurry tanker.

Drawbar hitch.

Three holes in the drawbar hitch give you a choice of three positions. You can also choose between different attachment points.

  • Drawbar with 40 or 50 mm diameter locking pin
  • Drawbar with 80 mm hitch ball
  • Drawbar with Piton Fix

A drawbar with a positive steering device is also available for positively steered implements.
