In 1913, the Claas brothers began developing a reaper-binder in Westphalia, Germany. Fun fact: Claas was already manufacturing a loader wagon for hay in 1934.
After that came the drawn combine harvester. This made Claas a big player in the world of agriculture machinery production. The Claas chippers were launched in 1973, which were a resounding success. Claas produces the most chippers by a long shot.
With the takeover of Renault Agriculture at the start of 2000, Claas also entered the world of tractors, and now produces a wide range with a great variety in power and applications.
There are various types of Xerion: the 4000, 4500 and 5000, with a maximum horsepower of 530.
This articulated tractor has 4 evenly-sized wheels that are good for transferring forces onto the ground. The tractors are top end, and are utilised for the hardest jobs. This type is often used for spreading manure, sowing and cultivating.
Because the cabin can be rotated, operating convenience is increased, particularly when compacting silage.
A special type is the Xerion 4000 Saddle Trac.
