Claas to show off Jaguar 800

CLAAS has confirmed that it will be demonstrating its new Jaguar 800 series foragers at the FTMTA Grass event in Gurteen, Co Sligo, on May 14.
Comprising four models with power outputs from 400hp up to 598hp, from the outside, the new Jaguar 800 adopts a rounded style similar to that used on the Jaguar 900 series.
Underneath, the new Jaguar 800 retains the direct drive system to all the main components and the straight crop flow through the forager.
The latest Vista cab gives the operator a high degree of comfort. The new design is more spacious, with reduced noise levels and increased visibility.
The Cebis operation system incorporates a number of new features designed to provide easier, faster and more intuitive operation. To access function screens, the operator can either use the main rotary switch or the new hot key, which provides direct access to pre-selected functions.
One of the defining features of the Jaguar range is the high throughput, straight crop flow system, which progressively increases the crop flow speed through the forager from about 4.8m/second as the crop enters the forager to 68m/second.
To make the most of this high capacity potential, the Jaguar 800 range is fitted with a new quick attachment coupler that allows the forager to use higher throughput header units from the Jaguar 900 range.
From the intake – for which there is also the option of the Stop Rock detection system – the crop is fed into the chopping cylinder. For further crop processing, the Jaguar 800 can be fitted with an Intensive corn cracker.
