Claas updates Arion 400 tractor range

Previously only available on its larger Arion 600/500 and Axion 800 tractor ranges, Claas has updated its Arion 400 range, with a number of new options.

With six models ranging from 90 to 140hp, the first option, previously unavailable, is the manufacturers Dynamic Steering System, which cuts the current 4.5 turns of the steering wheel from lock to lock, to as little as one turn.

 

The driver can choose from two automatic and one manual control mode using the Claas Information System (CIS) colour display.

 

Automatic mode one is steering angle dependant, where the steering speed increases the more aggressively the steering wheel is turned.

The second is speed dependant; as the forward speed increases, the steering ratio is reduced proportionally.

Manual mode allows the most suitable of four steering ratios to be selected.

The new steering system option is only available on models fitted with load sensing hydraulics.

 

Taken from the larger Arion and Axion models, the second option, available on 430 models and upwards, is the firm’s Hexashift transmission, which offers automatic shifting though its 24 speeds and road speed at a reduced 1,850rpm, compared to the 16 speed Quadrashift transmission currently available.

 

For automatic changes Hexactive mode looks after changes of powershifts and ranges, or manual mode can be selected where all changes are made through the joystick-mounted rocker switch.

 

In addition the firm’s Claas Sequence Management (CSM) and its Telematics machine monitoring systems can be specified.

 

CSM is Claas’ headland managent system, which can save a total of four sequences with up to 200 steps, and is controlled through a function button and the CIS. The system can control electronic spool valves (optional), linkages, pto, engine speed, four wheel drive and gear selection.

 

The Telematics system automatically records the tractors operating data and position; this information can be used for remote diagnostics if necessary.

The system can also be used to record the data from compatible machines, allowing for the record keeping of operations and application rates on individual field files.

 

All of these options are available now. For more information on the Arion 400, see our test drive at FGInsight.com/machinery.
