CLAAS threshing technology.

The unique APS threshing system. TUCANO 570 / 560 / 450 / 440 / 430 / 420.

The distinct competitive edge of CLAAS appears well before the threshing drum. The dramatic acceleration of the crop flow from 3 m/s to 20 m/s triggers a chain of extremely efficient processes:

  • The pre-accelerator separates the crop more thoroughly
  • The crop flow is particularly even and up to 33% faster
  • Higher centrifugal forces sort considerably more grains
  • Up to 30% of all grains are already sorted in the pre-separation concave directly below the accelerator, significantly reducing the load on the main concave

Thus there is a net performance increase of up to 20% with no rise in fuel consumption. APS really pays.

  • Versatile pre-separation concave.

    The pre-separation concave is designed as a MULTICROP concave so it can handle all types of crops. The three concave segments can be changed rapidly, minimising changeover times between crops and maximising efficiency and profitability.

  • Hydraulic concave adjustment.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    The concave is adjusted hydraulically from the operator's seat. This allows immediate and extremely convenient adaptation to changing harvesting conditions in the course of the day. The parallel concave control ensures that optimum threshing quality is maintained.

  • Long threshing channel with a large grain separation area.

    In the CLAAS APS threshing unit, we have succeeded in wrapping the main concave much farther around the threshing drum than in conventional machines. No other threshing unit offers an angle of wrap of 151°. You benefit from gentle yet thorough threshing with a large concave clearance and low drum speed with reduced fuel consumption.

TUCANO 570 450-320

An impressive combination: the APS HYBRID SYSTEM. TUCANO 570 / 560.

The APS HYBRID SYSTEM – threshing technology by CLAAS – represents the combination of two outstanding technologies: the tangential APS threshing system and the extremely efficient ROTO PLUS residual grain separation system.


This powerful duo offers you unbeatable advantages:

  • The speed adjustment of the drums in the threshing system is independent of the rotor speed
  • Individual adaptation of the entire process to changing field conditions over the course of the day
  • Protective threshing with top throughput

Only CLAAS brings both systems together in one machine, giving you a significant competitive edge over other systems.

TUCANO 570 450-320

ROTO PLUS makes the most of your work. TUCANO 570 / 560.

The principle behind the ROTO PLUS residual grain separation system is simple but extremely effective. The impeller of the APS threshing unit concentrates the material flow of the straw and feeds it to the rotary impeller. The axial direction of rotation facilitates the development of extraordinarily high centrifugal forces which are used to separate the residual grains from the straw.

  • Rotor variator for continuously variable speed adjustment.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    In order to allow maximum flexibility throughout the course of the day or to enable adaptation to different crops, the rotor speed can be adjusted continuously via CEBIS across a range of 920–480 rpm. As a result, it is possible to exert a major influence on the straw quality in a matter of seconds – when the straw is to be harvested, for example. Similarly, a low speed can be used in dry conditions in order to reduce the sieve loading caused by short straw. If the machine is called on to deliver its full throughput, the rotor speed is simply increased again.

  • Step drive.

    It is also possible for the machines to be equipped with a step drive. Eight rotor speeds can be set in this way.

    Rotor speed (rpm)975850750650552478425365

  • Mechanical rotor flaps.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    The rotor separation area can be varied to meet changing requirements by closing the first and second rotor concaves with shutters. The adjustment lever is easily accessible on the left side of the machine. It is possible to close both concaves or just the first one. This means that you can reduce the sieve loading in very dry conditions while under wet conditions you can use the large separation area for effective residual grain separation. Variable adjustment of the rotor separation area therefore ensures maximum throughput under all operating conditions.

  • Sixth rotor concave.

    The residual grain separation system of the TUCANO 570 has been optimised to increase the throughput. An additional (sixth) concave installed under the rotor increases the separation area and so enables higher separation performance compared with the TUCANO 560 with its five rotor concaves.

The new TUCANO 560.

The new TUCANO 560 combines the performance of a 6-walker with the dimensions of a 5-walker. Equipped with 800 mm tyres, it has a transport width of less than 3.50 m, while 680 mm tyres bring it below 3.30 m. As a result, the TUCANO 560 is able to operate optimally both on the road and in the field.

Conventional threshing system. TUCANO 340 / 320.

A high-quality threshing unit must remove and separate grains reliably in all harvest conditions. The classic CLAAS threshing mechanism provides impressive proof of its abilities time and again. Regardless of the harvesting challenges you face, it has the versatility to take them in its stride with the full threshing drum width of 1.58 m (TUCANO 340) as well as with the smaller 1.32 m version (TUCANO 320).

  • The threshing unit can be easily accessed from the front via the feed rake and from both sides through large openings
  • The extremely robust design of all the drives, and of the threshing drum drive in particular, ensures top reliability during the harvest

From field beans to clover seeds: the MULTICROP concave can handle anything.

The concave below the threshing drum is designed as a MULTICROP concave with individual segments that can be changed easily. You can switch the concave quickly for a wide assortment of crops, different varieties or various stages of ripeness - always ensuring the right combination of clean threshing, protective handling of the crop and a high separation rate.

NEW: Plastic preparation floor.

The preparation floor feeds the separated grains from the threshing system and the returns pan to the upper sieve and so enables initial pre-sorting of grain and chaff. Very moist conditions or a very high proportion of green growth place a heavy load on the preparation floor. The individual floor steps can be pulled out to the front through the stone trap for checking and cleaning. In this way, the even loading of the cleaning system can be ensured at all times.

  • Hydraulic concave adjustment and overload protection.
    TUCANO 450-320 570

    In the TUCANO 340 and 320 models, the concave gap is also set in CEBIS.

    The hydraulic overload protection also protects the conventional threshing system from damage by foreign bodies and blockages.

  • Hydraulic adjustment of the concave outlet.
    TUCANO 450-320 570

    Changing the MULTICROP pre-separation concaves

    In order to adjust the machine for different crop types, the concave outlet can be set to two different positions: wide for crops such as maize and beans, narrow for grain. The adjustment is made by actuating a valve near the cab door.

TUCANO 450-320 570

Straw walker technology. TUCANO 450 / 440 / 430 / 420 / 340 / 320.

Grains this way, straw that way. The even flow of the straw on the 4.40 metre long, open-bottomed straw walker ensures that practically all the grains are separated from the straw. A separate returns pan sends the grains on their way to the preparation floor. Even large volumes of straw are moved with ease by the system.

TUCANO 450-320 570

Resistance is futile! The CLAAS intensive separation system.

Mounted above every straw walker are two guide-controlled agitator tines which actively loosen the straw from the top to ensure that it flows quickly in a thin layer. As a result, the remaining grains fall easily out of the straw, through the walker floor and onto the returns pan.

Work safely at the capacity limit with the throughput monitor.

It's easy to keep an eye on the separation and cleaning from the cab, as if through a "rear view mirror", with the CLAAS throughput monitor. It works with high-precision adjustments to adapt automatically to crops of different weights and display the results accurately.

How you benefit:

  • In parallel viewing mode, you can fine-tune the combine faster by optimising the balance of the cleaning and residual grain separation functions
  • The throughput monitor indicates whether you are threshing at the best forward speed
  • You run safely at the performance limit of the combine

TUCANO 570-320 New cleaning system / 2016 / en

NEW: A clean-cut enhancement.

A clean crop in the grain tank and easy adjustment of the cleaning system are priorities for every operator. To make this a reality, we have optimised the cleaning system of the entire TUCANO model series in a process which involved the modification of the both the lower sieve and its oscillation angle.

NEW: Grain auger enlarged by 50%.

We have increased the diameter of the grain auger by 50% and have reinforced the drive. This means that the TUCANO is able to offer reserves to ensure it has the maximum throughput capability to handle high yields of grain maize.

  • Rotary or turbine fans.
    TUCANO 570 450-320
    • Depending on the model, there are six or four turbines or a rotary fan to ensure a consistent, uniformly distributed air flow pressure, even with variations in the sieve loading
    • Forced air flow control prevents crop mat formation
    • Reliable air flow even at low air speeds
    • Continuously adjustable from the cab
  • Preparation floor.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    Pre-sorting of the grains (bottom) and chaff and broken straw (top) takes place on the preparation floor. The resulting reduction in the load on the upper sieve increases the cleaning capacity. The six individual plastic elements can be easily pulled out to the front for cleaning the preparation floor after harvesting is completed.

  • Single or double steps.
    • These significantly reduce the load on the upper sieve
    • Result in increased performance, especially in the case of dry and brittle straw
  • Electric sieve adjustment.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    Developed by CLAAS, copied by the competition. Electronic sieve adjustment from the cab:

    • Easy and convenient
    • No need to exit the cab
    • Immediate result monitoring
  • 3D-cleaning system.
    • Dynamic side slope levelling – active control of the upper sieve
    • Completely consistent performance on side slopes with an incline of up to 20%
    • No wear - completely maintenance free
    • Fast, simple retrofitting
    • Together with the AUTO CONTOUR, it is the ideal "hillside package"
TUCANO 450-320 570

10,000 l. More space for top quality grain.

In keeping with their huge throughput capability, the TUCANO 570 and 450 are both equipped with a 10,000-litre grain tank which has sufficient reserve capacity to clear or divide large fields.

Impressive discharge rate.

The TUCANO model series is equipped with the turret auger and has a discharge rate of up to 105 l/s which allows the grain tank to be emptied in less than two minutes. Furthermore, the TUCANO has a large discharge height and reach. As a result, even large transport vehicles can be filled without difficulty. A corresponding range of grain tank discharge augers for cutterbar widths up to 9.22 m is available.

NEW: Continuous fill level indicator.

During the volume measurement in the grain elevator, a photo cell records the filling of the individual paddles. The value measured is displayed continuously in CEBIS and allows the Fleet View app to be used.

  • PROFI CAM – everything in view.
    TUCANO 570 450-320

    All TUCANO models can be equipped with a PROFI CAM at the end of the grain tank discharge auger tube. This camera position has been chosen precisely to allow up to three processes to be monitored simultaneously from the comfort of the cab on an additional colour display or on the S10 terminal:

    • Grain tank discharge auger tube deployed: transfer process
    • Grain tank discharge auger tube retracted: distribution of chopped material
    • Grain tank discharge auger tube retracted: rear of machine during reversing or on-road operation

    Up to four cameras can be connected to the system and simultaneously feed their images to the colour monitor or the S10 terminal in the cab.

  • CEBIS rear camera.

    The image from the rear camera fitted on the rear hood is fed straight to the CEBIS screen. As soon as the TUCANO moves backwards, the image from the camera is displayed automatically.

TUCANO 570 450-320

Short chop, even distribution.

As it leaves the rotor, the straw is chopped finely and spread evenly across the full working width. The sieve pan discharge is fed to the heavy-duty chaff spreader, which then spreads the chaff evenly over the field. The spreading distance can be easily adjusted.

TUCANO 570 450-320

NEW: Electric adjustment of rotor guide plate in TUCANO 500.

An electrically actuated guide plate in the rotor output area can be adjusted to modify the loading of the chopper and the swath profile. The crop moisture and condition of the crop are taken into account in order to ensure that the crop flow is always fed to the chopper as centrally as possible. Only in this way is it possible to achieve an even distribution of the chopped material. During swathing, the width of the swath can be influenced by the position of the rotor guide plate. If the rotor guide plate is fully retracted, the swath gets the full width for better drying of the straw as well as even loading of the following baler across the full pick-up width.


    The SPECIAL CUT straw chopper is available for all TUCANO models as an alternative to the STANDARD CUT model. The chopper is switched on and off by a sensor-controlled electrohydraulic system as soon as the straw guide plate is operated. The SPECIAL CUT has 30% more knives: 80 for the hybrid model (570) and those with six straw walkers (450 / 440 / 340), 68 for those with five straw walkers (430 / 420 / 320). The streamlined housing ensures even feeding of the straw to keep power consumption low and spreading reliable. The chopped material is then fed to the ACTIVE SPREADER or the straw spreader hood.

  • Spread across the full working width: ACTIVE SPREADER (TUCANO 570 / 560 / 450 / 440 / 340).
    TUCANO 450-320 570

    The larger the volume of straw and the cutting width, the more precisely and evenly the straw must be spread. The ACTIVE SPREADER by CLAAS offers you the right solution.

    The mixture of chopped material and chaff is grabbed while in motion by two counter-rotating spreading rotors, accelerated again and distributed over a total width of more than 9.3 metres. The direction of spreading can be conveniently controlled from the cab.

    Thus, the TUCANO ensures efficient straw spreading with minimal effort. Both the ACTIVE SPREADER and the SPECIAL CUT are unique in this performance class and put the TUCANO at the very top of the upper middle segment.

NEW: SPECIAL CUT for maize ex factory.

The TUCANO 500 is available ex factory with the SPECIAL CUT straw chopper for maize harvesting.
