Claas' most powerful tractor to date, the Xerion 5000 officially made its debut in the country at leading agricultural field days AgQuip last week.

Its sheer size and brand new, sparkling exterior managed to capture a fair bit of attention from passers-by at the show. so much so that enquiries have flowed in non-stop the moment the event kicked off. 

Product Manager James Moss says the 524hp tractor has been configured to suit Australian agricultural requirements and is perfect for broadacre applications with its dual wheel configuration and continuously variable transmission (CVT).

"Feedback has been very positive, we're getting a lot of interest so it's a matter of following up on the interest now," Moss says.

"Because it's a four-wheel steering tractor, not articulated, it's completely different to everything else on the market," he adds.

"The steering system itself is getting a lot of enquiries as well."
