Claas Brings Xerion Tractor Line to States
Claas is introducing its Xerion tractor line to the American market. The series has been updated from the European version to handle the demands of large-scale American farms.
“The Xerion is not just an off-the-shelf product for us,” says Drew Fletcher, Claas. “We have worked hard to meet the specs of the North American market. Those changes include improved power transmission, duals rather than singles, a better ladder, enhanced hydraulics, and dozens more.”
There are three models available: the 4000, 4500, and 5000. The 4500 and 5000 come equipped with powerful 12.8-liter Mercedes-Benz engines, while the 4000 is powered by an efficient 10.6-liter Mercedes-Benz engine. All three models achieve maximum output (530, 490, and 435 hp., respectively) at 1,700 rpm.
Technology offerings on the Xerion line include:
- Efficient agriculture systems for integrated equipment settings, steering systems, and software solutions.
- CEBIS control terminals for comprehensive machine monitoring.
- CMOTION ergonomic handle for machine controls.
- Telematics connection for remote monitoring, operating documentation, and data capture.
With six steering modes, the tractor can fit into tight spaces and remain stable on uneven ground. Three driving options give you complete control over speed, power, and fuel efficiency.
The Claas line of Xerion tractors will initially be available from a select number of North American dealers.
