First launched in 1973, the CLAAS JAGUAR forage harvester has gone on to become the world’s leading self-propelled forage harvester, with over 40,000 machines having been produced in that time.
The JAGUAR forage harvester always attracts a large crowd when working at grassland demonstrations and visitors to this year’s Scotgrass event will be able to see two of the latest JAGUAR models being put through their paces. Both machines will bear special 40,000 branding in celebration of this latest production milestone.
In addition to machinery from the extensive CLAAS Tractor and Green Harvest product range, on display at a working event for the first time will be the latest addition to the ROLLANT fixed chamber round baler range, the ROLLANT 540, and the new DISCO MOVE front mower, which can move over a range of 1000mm independent of the tractor linkage.
Over the 46 years that it has been in production, the JAGUAR forage harvester has consistently led the way in the development of innovative solutions and outstanding efficiency, resulting in it becoming the world’s leading self-propelled forage harvester.
Since the introduction of the first JAGUAR 60SF in 1973, powered by a 120hp engine, the JAGUAR range has grown and developed to where there is now a total of 11 models offered, in two ranges, with power outputs from 884hp down to 408hp.
The latest development is the announcement of the JAGUAR TERRA TRAC, which uses an innovative version of the long established rubber tracked TERRA TRAC crawler system originally introduced on LEXION combines.
New for this season, ROLLANT 540 fixed chamber round baler range features new rollers and a stronger chassis, with the choice of net or film wrapping. A new drive concept and outstanding ease of maintenance ensure high performance and a long service life.
