Rotor with individual tine segments.

CARGOS 8500-8300

The new, low-positioned rotor with nine rows of tines arranged in a helix formation and 22-mm-wide conveying fins guarantees optimum chop quality and transports the forage gently into the loading bay. Its 860-mm diameter ensures quiet operation and protects the drive train against load peaks. The rotor is set in motion by a bolted drive stub with a large spur gear. The tines are fitted on the rotor casing in three segments and bolted together. If necessary, individual tine segments can be simply and inexpensively replaced.

New twin knives with innovative design.

CARGOS 8500-8300

Twin knives with new knife engagement.

Two cuts are better than one. The new CLAAS twin knives are sharpened on both sides and are extremely stable. The broad base at the knife tips guarantees maximum stability and keeps the knife slot constantly closed. Since they can be conveniently turned round during long working days, the 40 knives provide optimum chop quality in conjunction with minimum maintenance. All the knives are individually secured against damage from foreign objects and feature an automatic blade return function. The sensitivity of the knife engagement can be adjusted to different operating conditions, thereby protecting the knives. If required, they can be folded away hydraulically, or replaced with blanked-off knives to prevent dirt accumulation.

Blade holders swing out for convenient knife changing.

With blade holders that pivot out hydraulically and a scraper floor that swivels 90° downwards, the new CARGOS 8000 offers optimum accessibility. The central knife locking and unlocking functions make knife changing a simple task. A knife guide secures the position of the knives as they are pivoted into place.

CARGOS 8500-8300

Lowerable chopper housing.

The CARGOS chopper housing is structurally isolated from the blade holders, and connected to the chassis as standard with attachment clips and bolts. A hydraulically lowered chopper housing with a locking mechanism operated from one side of the wagon is available as an option. This allows easier access for cleaning and maintenance work.
