New balers from CLAAS Green Harvest and tractor range will be on display at this year's Grassland & Muck event.

Unique CLAAS technology such as the Max Cut disc bed, the Max Spread angled tedder tine and Dynamic Power on the Jaguar forager range, is leading the way in enabling greater efficiency.

Two new additions to the CLAAS range on display at Grassland will be the new Variant 400 variable round baler and the Quadrant 5200 big square baler.

The Variant round baler is available in four models with two bale sizes in the Variant 400 range.

With the Variant 460RF and 465RC, the bale size is variable from 0.90m up to 1.55m, while bales up to 1.8m can be created using the Variant 480RF and 485RC.

Standard on all models is a 2.35m wide pick-up, fitted with a dual roller crop press.

This has four height settings so that it can be quickly and easily adjusted for a more uniform and even crop flow, so allowing the Variant 400 to be operated at a higher forward speed.

Also standard is the pro hydraulic drop down floor, which allows blockages to be quickly and easily cleared from the cab. The floor will also lower 30mm automatically to allow large lumps to pass through and be drawn into the baler.

In the event of a blockage, the operator simply lowers the floor so that the blockage can be forced into the baling chamber and the floor raised again to commence baling.

The Quadrant 5200 big square baler has now high capacity knotters to further increase output and bale density, and also features heavier duty drive systems.

Standard on the Quadrant 5300/5200 and optional on the Quadrant 4200, APC takes high density baler performance to a new level, by ensuring that bale weight is maintained by automatically monitoring the knotters and the stress on the drive system.

An option on the Quadrant 4200 and standard on the Quadrant 5300/5200, is the Knotter Control System where sensors are fitted to all six knotters.

With KCS, stress on each of the knotters is monitored to detect any broken strings or a missed knot. This will then result in an alarm on the control terminal to alert the driver.

Completing the line-up of CLAAS machines will be a range of mowers, from the smallest mounted to the widest triple combinations, and also the latest trailed models.

Complimenting these will be models from the Volto tedder and Liner range, while for harvesting there will be either the Cargos forage wagon or models from the Jaguar 800 and 900 ranges.
