CLAAS have launched the new SCORPION series of telehandlers, developed in cooperation with LIEBHERR
The well proven SCORPION models from CLAAS have been raising the bar in terms of telehandler technology for many years. CLAAS now presents a completely new SCORPION series, which has been developed in cooperation with Liebherr.
The new SCORPION models offer greater handling performance, thanks to increased lifting capacity and new advanced driver-assistance systems, improved driver comfort and efficiency, along with improved safety and reliability. These benefits stem from a range of new features, such as DYNAMIC POWER for engine management, the new SMART LOADING driver-assistance system for fine control of the working hydraulics and overload protection, a fully automatic parking brake, controlled crab steering as a fourth steering option and an all-new cab configuration.

The New Holland T6.175 Dynamic CommandTMtractor was crowned “Machine of the Year” 2018 in the Mid Class Tractor category by a jury panel of journalists representing leading European agricultural publications.

BRP have unveiled its 2018 Can-Am ATV line-up equipped with the ABS (anti-lock braking system), a first in the off-road vehicle industry. The 2018 Can-Am Outlander and Renegade models are compliant with the new EU regulations and therefore allow users to make no compromise on the performance and their riding experience.
Approved under the new European Union T3b category, these new ABS-equipped models can reach a maximum speed of 105 km/h. Vehicles not equipped with ABS will be limited to 60km/h.
A wider pick-up and a new rotor design have further improved the efficiency with which Strautmann’s Giga VitesseCFS 3602 forage wagon collects and carries cut grass.
The wider 2.25m pick-up means that in fields where grass has been poorly raked and left in wide swathes, and also around headlands and corners, drivers will find efficient pick-up much easier. The new rotor design further enhances the action of the CFS by ensuring an even grass density at the outside of the chopper rotor which in turn densely fills the full width of the wagon.
A New Generation of sprayers from FarmGEM has been designed and developed and are now available.
The range has also been extended and now includes amenity, orchard & vineyard, mounted, trailed and self-propelled sprayers.
Krone has replaced its MX320 forage wagon with three new models in the range bringing the total number to five. Still based around the original chassis, the new MX 330, MX 370 and MX 400 models will include EasyFlow – W camless pick-up, PowerLoad automatic filling, and a sloped floor at the front of the machine.
The MX range of forage wagons has been designed with operator comfort in mind. Automatic filling using PowerLoad for example takes a lot of pressure of the driver. Its sprung loaded passively steered axle also provides a higher level of comfort and stability.
