Claas has re­leased six new mod­els in the Ax­ion 800 trac­tor se­ries, all of which come with a choice of three op­er­at­ing sys­tems, a univer­sal tow hitch sup­port and im­proved brak­ing.

The three op­er­at­ing sys­tems are: the ba­sic Claas In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (CIS); the in­ter­me­di­ate Claas In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem Plus (CIS+); and the ad­vanced Claas Elec­tronic on-Board In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (CEBIS).

“CIS has been kept de­lib­er­ately sim­ple with up to five me­chan­i­cal spool valves and the tried-and-trusted CIS dis­play,” Claas Har­vest Cen­tre trac­tors group prod­uct man­ager Dave Knowles says.

“The new CIS+ sys­tem of­fers elec­tronic spool valves in com­bi­na­tion with the CIS colour dis­play. It is an in­ter­me­di­ate sys­tem that is aimed at cus­tomers who want greater con­ve­nience and ef­fi­ciency but do not need all the func­tion­al­ity of the CEBIS sys­tem. Im­por­tantly, it of­fers cus­tomers the op­tion of us­ing the Cmatic con­tin­u­ously vari­able trans­mis­sion with­out the CEBIS sys­tem.”

CIS and CIS+ both use a multi-func­tion arm­rest that in­cor­po­rates the Elec­tropi­lot four-way con­trol lever and Drive­stick con­trol lever.

The up­dated CEBIS op­er­at­ing sys­tem fea­tures a new 12-inch touch­screen dis­play and an er­gonomic arm­rest in­cor­po­rat­ing the Cmo­tion multi-func­tion con­trol lever.

An­other stand­out fea­ture of all trac­tors in the Ax­ion 800 se­ries range – which range in horse­power from 205hp to 300hp – is a univer­sal tow hitch sup­port for a range of new draw­bar op­tions.

“This hitch sup­port, which is also found on the Ax­ion 900, al­lows prob­lem-free con­nec­tion with im­ple­ments from other farm ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­tur­ers us­ing the same stan­dards,” Knowles says.

“The tow hitch sup­port comes with a lad­der hitch as standard and a slot that can be ad­justed for six dif­fer­ent trac­tion set­tings,” he adds.
