Tractive power, efficiency and comfort – the AXION 900 large tractor series from CLAAS has been known for these three core attributes since its launch in 2011. Compliant with the Stage V exhaust emission standard, it now also combines CEMOS – the first interactive assistance system and the leader in this field – with the factory-fitted CTIC tyre pressure control system.
The Stage V models of the AXION 900 and AXION 900 TERRA TRAC use the 8.7-litre Cursor 9 six-cylinder engine from FPT.
Emission control is handled by a SCRoF system with AdBlue injection and enlarged filter and reaction surfaces. Exhaust gas recirculation is still not necessary. At 1,800 rpm, the power unit delivers a maximum of 325 to 445 hp, depending on the model. With the CLAAS low-speed concept, the peak torque of 1,600 to 1,860 Nm is already available at just 1,400 rpm.
The CMATIC continuously variable transmission also ensures that the full torque can be called up at all speeds – from 0.05 to 50 km/h.
The top speed of 50 or 40 km/h can be reached with diesel-saving 1,470 to 1,400 rpm. The idling speed is a low 650 rpm. The driver can choose from three virtual ranges for the task in hand.
The AXION 900 series has been able to operate with wheels up to 44 inches on the rear axle since 2017. Together with the long wheelbase of 3.15 m, this has always resulted in excellent power transmission to the ground. The front and rear axles are approved for operation with twin wheels as standard. A new feature is the factory-fitted pre-equipment for CTIC tyre pressure control systems from CLAAS.
The model series with five wheeled machines is completed by the AXION 930 TERRA TRAC and AXION 960 TERRA TRAC, introduced in 2018, which now also meet the Stage V emission standard.
The universal range of applications for the lightest tractors with crawler tracks in this power class extends from heavy and medium-heavy soil cultivation, work with seed drills and harvesting with loader wagons to special applications such as slurry hosing.
The AXION 900* series tractors can be equipped optionally with CEMOS, which was introduced in 2018 and is also an option in the ARION 500, ARION 600 and AXION 800 series. This is available as an optional extra for all AXION 900 wheeled tractors equipped with CEBIS and is the first interactive and self-learning driver assistance and machine optimisation system on tractors to enable a significant improvement in efficiency compared with manual adjustment of the tractor and the implement.
The AXION 900 wheeled tractors with Stage V are also the first tractors to combine CEMOS with the factory-fitted CTIC tyre pressure control system. This makes it possible for the first time ever to adjust the internal tyre pressure intelligently and dynamically during work, in optimal coordination with the other parameters already mentioned and in interaction with the driver.
