In-cabin controls, an articulated drawbar, an electrohydraulic steering system, a loading bay cover and an enhanced lighting package are all included in the Comfort-spec Cargos 700 wagons.

Claas Harvest Centre group product manager for Claas Jaguar and Greenline Luke Wheeler says the Cargos 700 is integrated with the Claas Easy app for tablet, or any terminal compatible with ISOBUS.

"Key functions, such as the hydraulic articulated drawbar, can be assigned to the tractor function keys for easy operation," Wheeler says.

"The drawbar automatically moves into one of four settings at the push of a button to provide optimum alignment of the wagon during transport, chopping, unloading and field operations.

"A steering angle sensor on the drawbar measures the steering angle and then automatically adjusts the axles to provide the best balance between manoeuvrability and stability in every situation," he says.

The driver can also adjust the steering sensitivity through a settings menu, or control the functions manually.

"This includes the crab steering function, which can be used to minimise ground damage in wet conditions or to enable the wagon to drive right up to the edge of the silage bunker when unloading," Wheeler says.

The wagons also feature an automatic loading bay cover, which Wheeler says ensures a safe load even on the road.

"Two sections fold out over the wagon from the left and right, keeping the load secure at all times," he says.

He also points out the lighting functions, which are able to be customised for specific usage.

"The driver can save individual lighting scenarios for specific operations, such as road transport and unloading, which can be activated at the push of a button."

Claas says the Cargos 760, 750 and 740 models have loading volumes of 48.5, 42.5 and 36.5 cubic metres, respectively.

Wheeler says tyre, suspension, and axle configurations are more customisable, and can be tailored to individual needs.

"The tyre selection is more extensive than before, with a range of profiles and tyre sizes from 22.5 to 30.5 inches available," he says.

"Likewise, models can be specified with four different tandem or tridem axle configurations to suit a range of maximum loads from 18 to 30 tonnes."
