CIS. Simply good.

In the basic version, the ARION has mechanical spool valves and the CLAAS INFORMATION SYSTEM (CIS). The CIS display features a compact design and outstanding control ergonomics: all settings can be activated easily via a rotary switch and the ESC button. Two electronic spool valves for the front loader are also available as an option in the CIS version and are operated via the ELECTROPILOT on the armrest.

NEW: CIS+. Simply more.

CIS+ affords impressive ease of use and an intuitive design. Despite its pleasing simplicity, it has all the necessary functionality and the automatic functions needed for effective, effortless operation. CIS+ is also available with a continuously variable CMATIC or HEXASHIFT powershift transmission. The 7" CIS colour display built into the A-pillar combines display and setting options for the transmission, electronic spool valves, F buttons and CSM headland management.

NEW: CEBIS. Simply everything.

With the HEXASHIFT or CMATIC transmission, the CEBIS version features electronic spool valves and the superb CEBIS terminal with a 12" touch display. As well as enhanced automatic functions such as CSM headland management and spool valve prioritisation, it also offers many other functions – CEBIS leaves no stone unturned. All settings can be entered in seconds thanks to touchscreen operation and logical menu navigation.

ARION 660-510

Outstanding visibility and accessibility.

Tractors in this performance class are used for all sorts of work.

Entering and leaving the cab frequently while working in the yard and implements with a large working width are part of everyday life, so the cab must be designed accordingly. CLAAS has developed a cab which is available in a 5- or 4-pillar version to meet these needs.

Benefits:

  • Large-volume cab creates an extremely spacious working environment
  • Clear view of the full working width
  • Continuous windscreen
  • 5-pillar cab: wide access, the open door protrudes a short distance only
  • 4-pillar cab: continuous visibility on the left-hand side of the cab

The cleverly positioned rear cab pillars and convex rear window give the driver an excellent view of the implement and hitch area.

CEBIS. Simply everything.

An armrest that sets new standards.

All the main controls are integrated into the right-hand armrest.

The height and position of the armrest can easily be adjusted to the driver's requirements.

Functions that are used less frequently, such as PTO speed preselection and the main switches, are located to the right of the driver's seat. When the driver's seat is rotated, the electronic linkage control system can be operated comfortably with an excellent view of the attached implement. Fine adjustment of the settings can then take place while work is in progress. Two additional buttons enable you to raise and lower the rear linkage manually for easier implement attachment.

CMOTION multifunction control lever. Everything in hand.

CMOTION multifunction control lever.

The CMOTION is a CLAAS concept which makes using the main functions of the ARION easier and more efficient. Functions are controlled using your thumb and forefingers, allowing your hand to stay in one place for the majority of time and preventing fatigue.

  • Operating the HEXASHIFT or CMATIC.

    All HEXASHIFT shifting operations are carried out using the CMOTION. A slight push activates the powershift speeds.

    By pushing the CMOTION further forwards or backwards, it is possible to select ranges directly and skip powershift speeds. With the CMATIC, the forward speed can be adjusted precisely and continuously using the CMOTION.

  • At the push of a button.

    The free assignment option for the ten function buttons on the CMOTION means that there is no longer any need to reposition your hands while you work. All implement-specific ISOBUS functions are easily controlled using the CMOTION:

    • ISOBUS functions
    • Event counter on / off
    • Spool valves

Rear linkage functions on the CMOTION:

  • Lower to preset working position
  • Raise to the preset lift height position
  • Manual activation: lift and lower at two speeds (slow / fast)
  • Quick implement entry

CEBIS terminal. Everything under control.

Clear layout and fast operation.

The 12" CEBIS screen uses self-explanatory symbols and colour coding to give a clear picture of the settings and operating statuses. Thanks to the CEBIS menu structure and touch-sensitive screen, all settings can be entered in just a few steps.

A particularly attractive feature is the DIRECT ACCESS function with the machine silhouette. One touch is all it takes to go straight to the right dialogue window.

As well as screen-based operation with the CEBIS, there is a set of buttons in the armrest. Full CEBIS operation is available using the rotary/push switch and ESC button if uneven ground reduces the accuracy of fingertip operation. The DIRECT ACCESS button takes you straight to the settings for the last used tractor function.

  • CEBIS – simply better.
    • Fast and intuitive navigation using the CEBIS touch display
    • Rapid access to the sub-menus with the DIRECT ACCESS function
    • Last used function from DIRECT ACCESS touch button on the CEBIS or button on the armrest
    • Touch the machine silhouette or spool valves
    • Navigation using the rotary/push switch and ESC button on the armrest – ideal when driving on rough terrain
    • Two different screen layouts available (road travel and field work)

CIS+.Simply more.

Everything to hand.

The height and position of the armrest can easily be adjusted to the driver's requirements.

The perfectly ergonomic armrest.

The multifunction armrest has been designed for optimum ergonomics and is the linchpin to relaxed and effective working. It's the result of extensive analyses of the operating processes in the cab: frequently required functions are located on the multifunction armrest, while those required less frequently are located on the right-hand side console.

  • An instinct for excellence – CMATIC operation.

    The unique DRIVESTICK with handrest on the side handles intuitively and gives full control of the HEXASHIFT or CMATIC transmission.

    Unlike conventional drive levers, the DRIVESTICK comes with proportional control of a CMATIC transmission. This means that the further it is pushed or pulled when in drive lever mode, the faster the transmission accelerates or brakes the tractor.

    This functionality is not needed so often in accelerator pedal mode as the driver controls the speed with the foot pedal. However, it is still very useful, for example to manually increase or reduce the engine braking effect.

    When the DRIVESTICK is used in conjunction with the CMATIC transmission, it also has a cruise control button. Just press the button briefly to activate cruise control, or press and hold to save the current speed. If cruise control is active, the speed can be changed simply by moving the DRIVESTICK forwards or backwards. CIS+. Simply more.

  • CEBIS does it, so does CIS+.
    • Set or activate individual flow and time control for individual spool valves
    • Continuously variable PTO engagement/disengagement settings based on rear linkage height
    • Record and run four CSM headland management sequences
    • ISOBUS implements can be operated using the F buttons on the tractor
    • Implement controls tractor (ICT): with QUADRANT square balers or CARGOS loader wagons

CIS. Simply good.

It's the result of extensive analyses of the operating processes in the cab: frequently required functions are located on the multifunction armrest, while those required less frequently are located on the right-hand side console.

  • An instinct for excellence – HEXASHIFT operation.

    The unique DRIVESTICK is intuitive to use and gives you full control of the HEXASHIFT transmission. Complex and cumbersome shifting operations therefore become a thing of the past. All you need is nimble fingers to shift as you please.

  • A question of settings.

    Each spool valve has its own rotary switch. The function options for each spool valve are selected using the rotary switch allocated to it:

    • Rotary switch in position IIII: Pressure – / Neutral / Pressure + / Float position
    • Rotary switch in position III: Pressure – / Neutral / Pressure +
    • Rotary switch in lock position: Spool valve locked in pressure position for permanent operation or in neutral position

Well informed. CIS.

The CLAAS INFORMATION SYSTEM (CIS).

In the CIS version, the display is built into the instrument panel. The additional HEXASHIFT display on the A-pillar shows all the information relating to the transmission at a glance.

CIS+:

The modern design of the 7" colour CIS display on the A-pillar provides the driver with full information about the transmission, electronic spool valves and F buttons. This colour CIS display shows the settings in the lower part of the screen. The logical, menu-guided interface and clear symbols make navigation very simple.

In both versions, all settings are easily activated using a rotary/push switch and the ESC button on the steering wheel. The following functions can be configured using the CIS:

  • CMATIC or HEXASHIFT transmission settings
  • Additional functions e.g. SMART STOP or dynamic steering
  • Progressivity of the REVERSHIFT clutchless reverser
  • Time and volume settings for the electronic spool valves
  • On-board computer functions such as area worked, fuel consumption, area output
  • Maintenance interval display

Precision at the headland with CSM.

CLAAS SEQUENCE MANAGEMENT.

CSM headland management takes the load off you whenever you need to manoeuvre at the headland. By pressing a button, you can run any of the previously recorded functions.

The following functions can be combined in any order:

  • Spool valves with time and flow control, Four-wheel drive, differential lock and front axle suspension
  • Front and rear linkage
  • Cruise control
  • Front and rear PTO
  • Engine speed memory
  • Easy to record and run.

    Sequences can be recorded on a distance- or time-related basis. During recording, clear symbols allow the driver to follow the creation of the sequence step by step on the CEBIS or CIS colour display. A sequence that is running can be paused and restarted by simply pressing a button.

  • Non-stop optimisation with CEBIS.

    Recorded sequences can be changed and optimised in the CEBIS at a later date. Steps can be added and deleted or changed and adapted in minute detail, allowing times, distances and flow volumes to be tailored to current conditions. Once a sequence has been recorded, it can be refined down to the last detail in just a few steps.

Ergonomics and comfort for optimum working conditions.

First-class comfort.

Many features of the working environment make the ARION the ideal choice for long working days. A large number of storage options mean that the driver can always find space for a mobile phone or documents. Under the passenger seat there is a cooler compartment which has room for two 1.5 litre bottles and snacks. Perfect for your lunch break.

LED headlights for perfect illumination.

If you're still working when it goes dark, the work lights will light up the whole of the area around the machine, so you can see exactly what you're doing. For even more demanding situations, up to 20 LED work lights and four LED road lights can illuminate the entire surroundings of the ARION almost as brightly as daylight.

A pleasant working environment.

All ARION models are fitted as standard with air conditioning and, optionally, with a category 3 filter. The components of the air conditioning system are built into the double insulated cab floor, giving optimum air flow distribution in the cab and significantly reducing the noise level from the ventilation system. As no components are built into the roof, the driver has additional headroom and an enhanced feeling of space. A fully automatic climate control system is available in addition to manual control.

Clear and logical layout.

When you press the small pedal underneath the steering column the entire steering column folds out of the way, allowing plenty of room to enter and leave the cab. The column can be returned to the optimum position when you start work. A lever on the steering column also enables you to adjust the height of the steering wheel.

The instrument panel is always perfectly visible because it is mounted on the steering column and moves with it.

Illuminated interior.

By day and night, all the controls are illuminated when the headlights are switched on. And the symbols on all the switches are backlit so that they can be operated safely at all times. The brightness of the CEBIS monitor automatically adjusts to the lighting conditions, preventing glare within the cab. A dark colour scheme can also be selected in the CEBIS. This gives a softer contrast, especially when working in the dark, and reduces eye fatigue.

Suspension that protects both operator and machine.

Full four-way suspension.

Four suspension points mean that the cab is fully isolated from the chassis, preventing impacts and vibration from reaching the driver. Longitudinal and lateral struts join the suspension points and keep the cab stable when turning corners or braking. An adjustable torsion strut makes it possible to choose between three different suspension hardnesses. The entire suspension system is completely maintenance-free.

Ventilated and warm: the premium seat.

Five Sears and Grammer seats are available, including a ventilated premium seat.

  • Active seat ventilation makes the seat feel good whatever the weather
  • Suspension automatically adjusts to the driver's weight

NEW: PROACTIV front axle suspension.

The CLAAS suspension kinematics in ARION 600 / 500 tractors produce outstanding drive characteristics. Widely spaced suspension cylinders and active roll stabilisation on bends guarantee vehicle stability and safety, while the double-acting suspension with load change compensation and 100 mm suspension travel deliver outstanding ride comfort.

Vibration damping.

Heavy implements mounted on the front and rear create a load on the tractor as well as the driver. The front and rear linkage are both equipped with vibration damping to compensate for peak loads during transport operations and when the attached implement is raised at the headland.
