CLAAS has enhanced the JAGUAR 980 and 970 models to include a continuously variable front attachment drive, an enhanced crop flow system, redesigned running gear and the CLAAS AUTO FILL system for automatic trailer loading to both the side and rear.
The optional new continuously variable front attachment drive enables efficient power transmission at varying speeds. This is particularly advantageous when harvesting with the pick up and the ORBIS maize front attachment. If the chop length changes, the system automatically makes a corresponding adjustment to the front attachment speed.
The result is a very even crop flow and improved chop quality. Furthermore, the operator can react to changing harvest conditions at any time by manually adjusting the automatically controlled front attachment speed.
The constant-speed mechanical can now also be combined with the continuously variable drive. This split-power variant with mechanical and hydraulic drive provides high power transmission at a constant speed.
The models also feature a new enhanced crop flow system. One of its key features is the hydraulic clamping system for the shear bar which allows the shear bar to be adjusted quick and accurately.
In addition to the shear bar improvements, the sharpening system has also received an update with improvements to the access and maintenance of the sharpening system. Better guidance of the sharpening stone also helps to ensure that the chopping cylinder blades are in optimum condition.
The new models also work with an automatically adjusted chopping cylinder concave. The chopping cylinder concave is attached directly to shear bar mounting system and is automatically moved with the shear bar when it is adjusted. This means that the distance between the concave and the chopper cylinder remains constant as the chopping cylinder blades wear, thereby ensuring an even crop flow, regardless of the condition of the blades. Furthermore, this arrangement saves fuel and reduces wear.
