CLAAS KGaA mbH Announces Launch of Axion 900 Large Tractors

CLAAS has announced the launch of AXION 900 large tractors. The CLAAS AXION 900 series of large tractors for contractors and big farms was first launched in 2011 and quickly established itself on the market. It is particularly appreciated for its enormous tractive power, perfectly matched engine and transmission, exceptional ease of operation and high fuel efficiency. CLAAS now presents the new generation of the AXION 900 series, which has undergone systematic refinement and offers many new features. These include more powerful engines with a low-speed concept, optimised CMATIC transmission control, the new CEBIS terminal with touch display and CMOTION multifunction control lever, as well as the new CIS+ equipment option with multifunction armrest. All new AXION 900 models have the proven and highly and sophisticated 6-cylinder FPT Cursor 9 engine with 8.7 litre cubic capacity. This engine meets all the requirements of the Stage IV (Tier 4) emissions standard. It also has a new, variable geometry turbo as standard equipment, delivering optimum charge-air pressure according to the current load and engine speed.

CLAAS has announced the launch of new generation of the ARION 500 and 600 series tractors. With the ARION 500 and 600 series, CLAAS offers versatile, all-round tractors with a high level of comfort and convenience which are equally suited to field and grassland work, transport and front-loader activities around the yard. CLAAS now presents a new generation of these proven series with enhanced equipment options, a wider range of engines and many new features. These include the new CIS+ system, the new CEBIS terminal, updated HEXASHIFT and CMATIC transmission functions and the PROACTIV front axle suspension, newly developed by CLAAS. The new CIS+ and the deluxe CEBIS, three different equipment options are now available for models in the ARION 500 and 600 series for the very first time. All versions are available with a HEXASHIFT powershift transmission; alternatively, the CIS+ and CEBIS versions can be supplied with the continuously variable CMATIC transmission. The CIS version has been kept deliberately simple with mechanical spool valves and the CIS display, while CIS+ offers electronic spool valves and the CIS colour display as standard. Both versions have the proven multifunction armrest with ELECTROPILOT four-way control lever and DRIVESTICK to operate the transmission. The CEBIS version goes even further, featuring the fully redesigned CEBIS terminal with 12-inch touch display and intuitive DIRECT ACCESS as well as the CMOTION multifunction control lever, which can be operated using just three fingers. The power output range of the ARION series has been extended upwards and downwards. It now stretches from 125 hp in the ARION 510 to 185 or 205 hp in the ARION 660 CLAAS POWER MANAGEMENT (CPM). In the ARION 660, CPM provides a boost of up to 20 hp for transport and PTO work. All the ARION 500 models have a 4-cylinder engine, while the ARION 600 tractors have a 6-cylinder engine throughout. In the ARION 600 models the engine idling speed is automatically reduced from 800 to 650 rpm when the tractor is stationary, delivering additional fuel savings. All the engines meet the requirements of the Stage IV (comparable to Tier 4) emissions standard a combination of EGR (cooled exhaust gas recirculation), diesel particulate filter (DPF) and SCR catalytic converter (selective catalytic reduction). Despite the inclusion of an AdBlue tank, the diesel tank capacity has been increased slightly. The proven HEXASHIFT powershift transmission in the new ARION series has undergone further development under practical conditions and offers a wide range of new additional functions.
