Updated Xerion models offer a wealth of efficiencies for 2014
Following the launch of the high horsepower Claas Xerion 5000 and 4500 versions two years ago, a third model has now been added.
At the same time, all three models for 2014 will benefit from new engines and a number of other updates and changes.
The Xerion has proven itself in both arable and more specialist applications, being ideal for heavy cultivations or more specialist work such as slurry spreading, silage clamp buck raking or timber processing.
The new addition to the range, the Xerion 4000, has a huge maximum power output of 435hp and will be available in three versions: Trac, with a fixed centrally positioned cab; Trac, VC with a rotating cab; or Saddle Trac, which has a forward mounted cab.
Central to the Xerion design is the concept of building the tractor around a full-frame load-bearing chassis from which the main components are suspended, and in which the cross-bracing is now bolted on rather than welded for added strength.
The four large equal-sized wheels enable the Xerion to put down a large tyre contact area for minimal wheel-slip and maximum traction, ensuring optimum efficiency.
Claas claims this unique design results in a tractor that is highly manoeuvrable and is capable of safely carrying large loads but able to efficiently convert engine power to tractive power, so ensuring high output and low running costs. The Xerion is the only tractor in this high horsepower sector to have a 50kph CVT transmission.
