The Xerion name may be familiar to North American Claas customers, but seeing the series on tracks might come as a surprise.
The new offering, launched at Agritechnica this year, in Hanover, Germany, uses a crawler track system from Dutch manufacturer Zuidberg. The CAMSO tracks have a width of 30 inches, increasing the machine’s footprint by 25 per cent, compared to the largest single tire. They’re also equipped with a pendular suspension system.
RealAgriculture’s coverage of Agritechnica 2019 is made possible by Brevant seeds. The latest technology, locally tested. Brevant seeds. Seed. Yield. Easy.
Tracks will be available in Xerion’s new Trac TS 5000 (530 horsepower) and 4500 (490 horsepower) fixed frame tractors.
“We’re experts in tracks, we’re experts in tracks on our machines, and this is yet our next example of extending that knowledge and prowess into this machine,” says Claas’ Eric Raby.
Pre-Series machines will be showing up in Canada and the U.S. next summer.
