The CLAAS chassis.

CARGOS 8500-8300

The exclusive new CLAAS chassis design is based on a modular bolted frame construction, with significant weight savings in comparison with conventional axle assemblies. A choice of mechanical suspension with parabolic springs or hydraulically suspended chassis is available. Thanks to the modular design, some tandem axle models can have axle loads as high as 18 or 20 tonnes. For the CARGOS 8500, the largest model in the range, there is also a tridem axle assembly with a permitted axle load of 27 tonnes. All axle variants can be fitted with 22.5" or 26.5" tyres as preferred. Modular flexibility between trailed and positively steered axles is further enhanced by the new standard steering cylinder, fitted as standard equipment.

Tyres.

To equip the CARGOS for all operating conditions, there is a wide range of tyres, from 500/60-22.5 to 800/45 R 26.5. Smaller tyres provide a very low centre of gravity for maximum stability on steep hilly terrain, while large-size 26.5" tyres ensure optimum trailing characteristics, particularly on wet ground.

1. Maximum manoeuvrability

2. Maximum stability

Silver medal for steering dynamics.

For tandem axle models, a choice is available between a trailing axle that can be locked using the operating terminal or a CLAAS exclusive – an electrohydraulic positive steering system with adaptive articulation angle warning and speed-dependent adjustment of the steering line. Tridem models are fitted as standard with the electrohydraulic positive steering system. This ensures fully automatic optimum adjustment of steering behaviour to the driving situation at all times, i.e. the system always chooses the best compromise between manoeuvrability and stability. This innovation was awarded a silver medal at Agritechnica in 2013.

And when making a tight turn, the articulation angle warning assist sounds an acoustic alarm to warn the driver before any collision between the tractor and the trailer drawbar. This allows full use to be made of the combination's manoeuvrability, and also makes the CARGOS 8000 ideal for regions with small fields and narrow accessways.
