New narrow width track for half tracks

  • A new narrow width track will enable the AXION TERRA TRAC high horsepower tractors from CLAAS to be used in an even more versatile and soil-friendly manner

Since the market launch of the AXION TERRA TRAC in 2019, the full-suspension half-track high horsepower tractors have appealed to more and more farmers and contractors throughout Europe and, from 2022, also in selected overseas markets. In addition to heavy and medium-heavy pulling work, e.g. soil cultivation, and thanks to their excellent soil protection, the unique ground contour following with 120mm suspension travel of the drives and the outstanding driving comfort up to 40kph top speed, the tractors also perform far more varied activities, such as spreading organic and mineral fertilizers on fields and grassland, hauling grain or sugar beet at harvest or even the mowing of sensitive meadows.

In addition to the current 635mm and 735mm wide rubber belts, an additional narrow width variant is now available for even more versatile and soil-protecting use. For problem-free use in row crops, for example spreading organic fertilizer in crops or working with hoes, CLAAS now offers 457mm/18 inch narrow tracks. These belts are ideal for further reducing soil damage and compaction on fields and grassland, and thanks to the active belt control when steering, there is no surface damage when turning tight.

The 457mm/18 inch narrow tracks as well as the 635mm/25 inch and 735mm/39 inch wide standard tracks can now also be supplied with a 3.00m/120 inch track centre setting in selected markets such as Australia. This makes it possible to work in Controlled Traffic Farming applications and to further improve maneuverability.

As a further innovation, the AXION TERRA TRAC can now be equipped with the CLAAS CTIC tyre inflation system on the front axle. The front tyres are filled using the air compressor for the air brake system.
