Optimal accessibility.

Convenient maintenance keeps set-up times to a minimum: QUICK ACCESS offers you various options for carrying out maintenance and service tasks rapidly. The familiar V-opening system between intake and drum housing can be operated with the front attachment in place. As an alternative, the intake housing swings open to the side to provide quick and convenient access to the chopping cylinder. Thanks to the quick coupling, the front attachment can be removed rapidly.

Four variants, many advantages.

In order to meet differing market requirements, CLAAS offers the V-MAX chopping cylinder with four variant knife configurations: V36, V28, V24, V20. These options allow a chop length range of 3.5 mm to 53 mm and offer you a whole host of benefits:

  • Optimum chop quality through precise cutting
  • Extremely smooth, power-saving action: the curved shape of the knives makes for an optimum crop flow
  • High strength: thanks to the way in which the curved knives are mounted, the chopping forces are taken up directly by the star-shaped drum
  • Extremely easy to set up: each knife is secured to the star-shaped drum by just two bolts
  • New: There is no need to adjust the knives. Shaped fittings act as templates through which the knives are attached directly to the star-shaped drum – saving you a great deal of time when fitting the knives
  • No need to adjust the knives

Individual segments.

The V-MAX chopping cylinder is made up of a number of segments. A key benefit of this design is that many of the components are mounted separately and can therefore be changed easily if necessary. The JAGUAR is equipped ex-works with universal knives which allow it to be used in all crops.

Special maize knives.

For maize harvesting, CLAAS offers a special maize knife variant. As stones hardly ever pose a problem during maize harvesting, the knives have been designed accordingly: a thin knife blade fitted at a steeper angle to the shear bar increases the chop quality and minimises the need for resharpening.

Knife sharpening based on throughput.

You can leave it to CEBIS to decide when the knives on the V-MAX drum ought to be sharpened. There are two options for determining when you are alerted that sharpening is required. You can either simply specify a period and select a given number of sharpening cycles. Or you set a throughput quantity, attainment of which triggers a reminder that knife sharpening is due. In this way, you can be certain that knife wear is being managed correctly.

Once the knives have been sharpened, the shear bar should be adjusted. This function also needs to be activated in CEBIS.
