Claas of America Incorporated recently launched the new Xerion 3300, a distinct 350hp machine capable of delivering a broad range of applications both as a large tractor and systems vehicle. The vehicle features award-winning engineering and flexibility for use in a wide variety of agricultural uses, including high capacity manure work, hauling and tillage.
It features permanent four wheel drive, 100 percent front and rear differential lock, a 100 percent central differential lock (locks front with rear axle), along with four equally large tires which maximize floatation and traction while maintaining a small 20ft turning radius. With full frame construction design, the 55 percent/45 percent front/rear weight distribution provides excellent tire traction at low air pressure to reduce soil compaction and fuel consumption even while taking on the heaviest of loads.
The Xerion’s engine and transmission are structurally integrated and are not supportive components. Instead, they are installed on ISO-mounts within the frame to prevent vibration, leaving the engine and transmission to deliver optimal power and performance. Available in three different models, the Xerion can be equipped with a fixed cab (Trac), forward cab (Saddle Trac) or variable cab (Trac VC) to perform numerous applications.
On the Xerion 3300VC (Variable Cab) the entire cab can be rotated 180 degrees in less than 30 seconds without leaving the seat, enabling the operator to view rear-mounted implements even while reversing. Operators also benefit from a panoramic view of the landscape to help keep everything under control.
