Available for all 2018-delivered Claas Quadrant 5300, 5200 and 4200 square balers, customers are able to choose from high-end LED lighting, an integrated bale weighing system and a ‘pull-out’ knife drawer.

Claas Harvest Centre Jaguar and Greenline product manager Luke Wheeler says the bale weighing function should appeal to all farmers and contractors.

"Weighing takes place during the baling process, so there’s no delay in the baling operation," Wheeler says.

"Individual bale weights – accurate to plus or minus 5kg even at speeds of up to 20km/h – are displayed on the ISOBUS control terminal in the cab," he adds. "Bale weights can then be saved according to the job or paddock for later processing or invoicing.

"Operators using the Claas Telematics remote monitoring system can also use this data to plot crop yield and bale moisture across the field."

Wheeler says the LED lighting system ensure user-friendly operation and maintenance while working at night: "It comprises seven high-quality lights fitted to key components of the baler, including the drawbar, flywheel, feed rake and bale chamber."

Already found on the Quandrant 5300 and 5200 models, the pull-out knife drawer is now available for the Quadrant 4200, which Wheeler says dramatically reduces the time required for a complete knife change from an hour to 15 minutes.

"This time saving will be a real boon for contractors, not to mention making it much  easier to maintain and replace the knives, resulting in better forage quality and throughput," he adds.
