OMAHA, NE — CLAAS recently introduced their latest tractor lines: the XERION 12.650 and 12.590, the ARION 660, 650 and 630, as well as row-crop friendly options on the AXION 960 TT and 930 TT. These machines have been developed with extensive input from North American farmers for exceptional productivity, efficiency and comfort.
- The all-new, high-horsepower XERION 12 Series was built for North American demands
- The new ARION 600 Series delivers versatility and productivity on the farm
- The AXION 900 TERRA TRAC (TT) is now offered in row-crop friendly configurations
The new tractors are available with a 653- or 585-hp engine. That power, coupled with an hydraulic flow rate of 140 gallons per minute, makes the XERION 12 Series the perfect tractor for today’s farm. It also comes standard with a purpose-built continuously variable transmission (CVT) – the only one available in its horsepower range. A new, heavy-duty axle system has replaced the earlier series to handle higher horsepower and heavier loads.
When it comes to driving on the road or working in the field, producers now have the option of ordering the new XERION 12 Series with 36- or 30-inch TERRA TRAC units on all four corners. This option helps reduce ground pressure, prevent compaction, lessen vibration and increase traction. If wheels are what you prefer, 800/70 R42 duals are available with a footprint of up to 42 inches.
Finally, the capacity of the XERION 12 Series is not limited to horsepower and hydraulic flow. The capacity inside the cab is also of note, with more than 20 percent additional legroom than its previous models. Supported by a four-point suspension and a sound-dampening design for added comfort, the cab is not just a workspace, it’s a space that works.
VERSATILITY IN A POWERFUL, REFINED PACKAGE: THE ARION 600 SERIES
The ARION 660, 650 and 630 multipurpose tractors are efficient and comfortable options for producers looking to handle a long list of tasks. Available in a horsepower range of 165- to 205-hp and equipped with a continuously variable CMATIC transmission, the ARION 600 Series offers superior fuel economy for mowing, tedding, raking, baling, loading, filling, tilling, cleaning, spreading, hauling and feeding – just to name a few. With a maximum transport speed of 31 mph and a lift capacity of 17,600 pounds, the ARION 600 Series is capable of making short work of many chores on the farm.
ARION also offers a four-point suspension for a smoother ride, along with a front PTO and three-point hitch. When used in conjunction with the CLAAS FL150 hydraulic self-leveling loader, the ARION can lift 7,546 pounds of material up to 15 feet high.
A highly spacious, ergonomically designed cab is available for operator comfort and excellent visibility. Its 12” CEBIS touchscreen display puts essential controls at the operator’s fingertips. The combination of versatility, power and comfort make the ARION the perfect all-around workhorse.
UPGRADED ROW CROP OPTIONS: AXION 900 TT SERIES
CLAAS has introduced a new option for the AXION 900 TT lineup, first released last year. The AXION 900 TT – TERRA TRAC option – is now available on 18-inch belts on 88- and 120-inch centers, in addition to the previous track widths of 25, 29 and 35 inches. The AXION 960TT and 930TT models, which are equipped with a four-mode, continuously variable CMATIC transmission, offer 445 and 355 hp, respectively.
