SWATH UP.*

Front attachments

The SWATH UP is the front attachment for clean and reliable swath pick-up.

The highlights at a glance:

  • Universal front attachment for different crop types
  • Pick-up belts for consistent swath pick-up
  • Effective avoidance of stone pick-up thanks to castor guide wheels
  • Loss-free crop pick-up
  • Working speed is automatically controlled via ground speed
  • Use

    SWATH UP demonstrates its abilities in areas which are unsuited to direct threshing - and it does so under all imaginable conditions. It enables the pick-up of nearly all windrowed crops, especially crops such as rice, rapeseed and grass seed, and provides yet another demonstration of the exceptional efficiency of CLAAS front attachments.

  • Technology
    Front attachments
    • Four wide, interlinked pick-up belts form the front belt unit (with pick-up fingers)
    • Four wide, interlinked transfer belts form the rear belt unit
    • Driven via chains and belts
    • Pick-ups controlled by a bevel gear
    • Speed of intake units can be adjusted continuously from inside the cab
    • The working speed is controlled automatically via the ground speed
    • Rake unit is suspended (coil springs and gas-filled spring struts)
    • Working depth can be set by castor guide wheels
    • Seals between pick-up belts and frame prevent leakage losses

Functional principle.

The pick-up fingers on the front belt module make for the clean and loss-free collection of the harvested crop. The crop is transferred to the rear belt unit which conveys it to the feed roller. Guide blocks and guide rollers ensure that the belt modules are positioned and tensioned precisely if unevenly loaded, thereby avoiding losses. The feed roller makes for a clean transition to the feeder housing.

Crop guard.

The crop guard ensures efficient crop flow. It can be adjusted hydraulically for height and is therefore able to adapt optimally to the most diverse conditions. Furthermore, the distance to the rake unit is adjustable.

Castor guide wheels.

The two castor guide wheels at left and right not only limit the depth but also ensure that the tines do not pick up any stones.
