  • Basic, intermediate and advanced operating systems offered

  • Universal tow hitch support

  • Improved brakes with air dryer

 

The three operating systems are: the basic Claas Information System (CIS); the intermediate Claas Information System Plus (CIS+); and the advanced Claas Electronic on-Board Information System (CEBIS).

"CIS has been kept deliberately simple with up to five mechanical spool valves and the tried-and-trusted CIS display," Claas Harvest Centre tractors group product manager Dave Knowles says.

"The new CIS+ offers electronic spool valves in combination with the CIS colour display. It is an intermediate system that is aimed at customers who want greater convenience and efficiency but do not need all the functionality of the CEBIS system.

"Importantly, it offers customers the option of using the Cmatic continuously variable transmission without the CEBIS system," he adds.

CIS and CIS+ both use a multi-function armrest that incorporates the Electropilot four-way control lever and Drivestick control lever.

The updated CEBIS operating system features a new 12-inch touch-screen display and an ergonomic armrest incorporating the Cmotion multi-function control lever.

The Claas Axion 800 tractor series features a new universal tow hitch


Another standout feature of all tractors in the Axion 800 series range – which range in horsepower from 205hp to 300hp – is a universal tow hitch support that supports a range of new drawbar options. 

"This hitch support, which is also found on the Axion 900, allows problem-free connection with implements from other farm machinery manufacturers using the same standards," Knowles says.

"The tow hitch support comes with a ladder hitch as standard and a slot that can be adjusted for six different traction settings."

The tractors’ braking systems incorporate an air dryer for increased service life and safety, Knowles says: "Condensation is automatically filtered out of the compressed air before it enters the accumulator, thereby preventing premature corrosion of valves, cylinders and air reservoirs and damage caused by freezing water."

The new Claas Axion 800 series tractors come with wide-angle rear-view mirrors, each with two independently adjustable fields of view, as standard. Options include an advanced LED lighting pack and leather seats.
