Top forage quality.

Owing to weather conditions, harvesting windows are often very short. CLAAS forage harvesting machines are therefore designed for reliable operation at maximum efficiency.

LINER swathers

A clean feed crop, with no compromise.

Cardanic rotor suspension.

For three-dimensional adaptation to uneven ground contours, the rotors move both lengthwise and laterally across the direction of travel, independently of the position of the main frame.

LINER swathers

Rotor adjustment – simplicity itself.

The swathing rotors are set correctly when placed at the minimum angle of inclination towards the swath. To adjust this angle, simply select the appropriate insertion position on the main shaft of the rotor chassis. This is the only way to ensure complete pick-up of the crop material. The end result is a perfect swath, even at high travel speeds.

When the tine is right...

Not all tines are created equal. The material has to be right, and, more particularly, of the optimum thickness. Both strength and flexibility are required, for clean crop pick-up and transport, without any attached dirt.

CLAAS silage tines achieve this objective, with a thickness of 9.50 mm and an angle of 10° at the bottom of the tine. This ensures reliable on-grip operation in all operating conditions, thanks to continuous enhancement of the product design. CLAAS engineers thrive on this kind of challenge. It's not just about good ideas, but turning them into the best possible solutions. It's also about vision, seeing further than the edge of the next rotor!

Which is precisely why CLAAS is at the leading edge of tine research, along with its specialist know-how in crop flow and ground-contour following.

The benefits for you.

  • The cardanic rotor suspension adapts effortlessly to uneven terrain
  • Adjustable swathing rotor angle
  • Sturdy, flexible tines ensure clean pick-up of the crop
LINER swathers

Ideal weight distribution.

The high-volume tyres on the main chassis give the LINER a wide track and a maximum contact area. This means that the weight is distributed optimally, and the soil is protected. The chassis provides the greatest possible stability on slopes, and on roads it enables high speeds of up to 50 km/h.

LINER swathers

The gauge wheel traces the ground contours.

The four-wheel or six-wheel chassis ensures optimum travel of the swather over the ground. The trailing-steered wheels on the front rotor and at the front of the rear rotor provide optimum soil protection. And the rigid wheels on the rear of the back rotor stabilise the LINER on hilly terrain.

LINER swathers

Precisely adjusted rake height with additional gauge wheel.

For some single-rotor swathers, a gauge wheel, with tool-free adjustment, is available as optional equipment. This assists in maintaining the correct height, particularly in hilly terrain, and keeps the rotor moving smoothly and cleanly over the ground.

The benefits for you.

  • Optimum ground-contour following protects both the soil and the crop
  • Chassis stability on all types of terrain
  • Optional gauge wheel, with tool-free adjustment (depending on the model)
