LINER 500 PROFIL

Single-rotor swathers.

The LINER single-rotor swathers are specially developed for farmers who prefer to handle their forage harvesting independently, and who often work in smaller fields. The working widths of 3.20 to 4.80 m are ideal for these situations. Whether with three-point hitching or as a towed model, the key features of the LINER single-rotor swathers are precise ground-contour following, high work rates and excellent reliability.

LINER 500 PROFIL.

On the level.

The CLAAS LINER 500 PROFIL was the world's first single-rotor swather with cardanic rotor suspension. Its three-dimensional adaptation to ruts and bumps, independently of tractor movements, has now been adopted in many other models. As an additional benefit, the cardanic suspension means that the rotor remains horizontal during the lifting operation, allowing greater lift heights.

Effortless removal.

Dank der PROFIX Bügelsicherung sind Sie beim LINER 500 auch mit der 3,80 m breiten Schwadglocke jederzeit sicher unterwegs.

LINER 450 / 420.

One swather, offering all the options – 
a truly versatile performer.

The LINER 450 and 420 models differ only in their working width. As in all CLAAS single-rotor swathers, maximum lift height ensures well-formed swaths, even in passover areas.

Precision swathing.

The raking height can be adjusted via a crank lever or optionally, hydraulically from the cab, for perfect precision raking. The position of the swath guardcan be fixed via an easy-to-operate clamping bolt.

The running gear.

The V-shaped tandem axles are located close to the tine circle of rotation, and provide optimum adaptation to ruts and bumps in the ground. The adjustable lateral inclination is used to adjust for different forage mass levels.

Robust inverted U-frame hitch.

Single-rotor swathers are attached to the two lower links of the tractor with the robust inverted U-frame hitch. The high insertion positions for the upper link provide ample ground clearance in the lifted state, even on smaller tractors. The practical support integrated in the inverted U-frame ensures that the universal shaft is at the right height, within easy reach for attachment, and can be conveniently parked when the swather is unhitched.

The standard tines on the 450, 420, 370 and 320 models are extremely robust, thanks to a material thickness of 9 mm, and therefore ideal for both hay and silage.

Safe and secure on the road.

Standard spring-supported or optional hydraulically folding protective frames and easy-access transport holders for removable tine arms make it easy to meet the road transport width requirement. An integrated transport lock holds the rotor in place while on the move, and large warning signs are optionally available, with or without lighting.

The CLAAS power drawbar (CKL) relieves the pressure on the attached swather's carrier frame,and the spring-loaded arms counter overrun on downhill slopes. The arms also automatically lock the three-point frame, for safety during road transport.

NEW: Eight-arm rotor dome assembly in the LINER 320.

The LINER 320 has a maintenance-free eight-arm rotor dome assembly. As on other models, the assembly is hermetically sealed and permanently lubricated, and therefore maintenance-free. The LINER 370 has an 11-arm rotor dome assembly.

Tool-free removel of tine arms.

The tine arms, each with three dual tines, have a lemon profile attachment. They are secured in place with clamping splints, for rapid tool-free removal when required.

LINER swathers

Rotor chassis.

The LINER models 370 and 320 both have a single axle as standard. A tandem axle is also available as optional equipment. The axles are positioned close to the circle of rotation of the tines, for optimum adaptation to uneven ground contours.

LINER swathers

Reliability based on practically maintenance-free technology: the LINER 370 and 320.

With their mix of an outstanding price-performance ratio and virtually maintenance-free technology with a long service life, these two LINER models are clearly the machines of choice in their class.

LINER swathers

LINER 500 T / 450 T.

T is for trailed.

To make the benefits of high-performance swathers available to farms using smaller tractors, CLAAS also supplies two trailed variants: the LINER 500 T and 450 T. Both these LINER models stay in position behind the tractor even in hilly terrain, whether hitched to a linkage drawbar or swinging drawbar,

Just hitch up and drive away.

The trailed single-rotor swather is operated with just one single-acting spool valve.

  • The hitch design enables raising of the rotors parallel to the ground
  • The rotor angle in the direction of travel is set with a built-in crank handle fitted in the drawbar cylinder, or the optional gauge wheel
  • Optional: parallelogram drawbar for connection to rigid pulling mechanisms
