More power, great traction, more hydraulic flow, and lower fuel use are all on offer with the CLAAS XERION 12 line up, according to the company.
Frans Reijmers, with CLAAS tractors, was on hand at the Ag in Motion show this week in Saskatoon to show off both the XERION and new ARION models.
Built for high horsepower and high hydraulic flow demand, the XERION 12.650 and 12.590 both feature a CVT engine designed to roll at lower RPMs while maintaining high flow to implements.
With peak flow of 140 gallons per minute, Reijmers says the tractor can deliver the necessary 110 gallons per minute required while minimizing fuel use.
Reijmers says fuel efficiency was top of mind when designing these models, as fuel prices climb worldwide. Driver comfort is also a key priority, and the cab features roll- and rumble-minimizing designs to keep operators in the seat happy and alert.
Available in both track and wheeled models, the XERION 12 line up can be fitted with 30″ or 36″ suspended tracks. The wheeled model offers larger tires than competitors to increase the footprint by 15 per cent to lower compaction risk.
