Claas brings out new kit op­tions for its Quad­rant baler range

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

Claas is of­fer­ing new equip­ment op­tions such as high-end LED lights for its Quad­rant square baler range.

Avail­able for all 2018-de­liv­ered Claas Quad­rant 5300, 5200 and 4200 square balers, cus­tomers are able to choose from high-end LED light­ing, an in­te­grated bale weigh­ing sys­tem and a ‘pull-out’ knife drawer.

Claas Har­vest Cen­tre Jaguar and Green­line prod­uct man­ager Luke Wheeler says the bale weigh­ing func­tion should ap­peal to all farm­ers and con­trac­tors.

“Weigh­ing takes place dur­ing the bal­ing process, so there’s no de­lay in the bal­ing op­er­a­tion,” Wheeler says.

“In­di­vid­ual bale weights – ac­cu­rate to plus or mi­nus 5kg even at speeds of up to 20km/h – are dis­played on the ISOBUS con­trol ter­mi­nal in the cab,” he adds. “Bale weights can then be saved ac­cord­ing to the job or pad­dock.

“Op­er­a­tors us­ing the Claas Telem­at­ics re­mote mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem can also use this data to plot crop yield and bale mois­ture across the field.”

Wheeler says the LED light­ing sys­tem makes use and main­te­nance while work­ing at night: “It com­prises seven high-qual­ity lights fit­ted to key com­po­nents of the baler.”

Al­ready found on the Quan­drant 5300 and 5200 mod­els, the pull-out knife drawer is now avail­able for the Quad­rant 4200, which Wheeler says dra­mat­i­cally re­duces the time re­quired for a com­plete knife change from an hour to 15 min­utes.
