VARIANT 485 - 460

A true core competency: 
The rotor starts the baling process.

Only from CLAAS: the belts and the chopping rotor turn in opposite directions, allowing the immediate start of the baling process necessary to produce a compact core. The high-speed rotor reaches directly into the bale, forcing the process to start – for each and every bale, and in all conditions. This also prevents belt slippage.

Patented wrapping system.

The completely reworked guiding plate provides even more reliable bale wrapping. The plate is open during baling, then closes during wrapping. It all adds up to an extremely reliable wrapping system.

VARIANT 485-460

Extra wide wrapping.

The patented CLAAS COVERED wrapping system provides bale coverage right up to the edge, and the CLAAS COVERED XW system even a few centimetres around it – for a neat, professional-looking end result.

360° rotor for ROTO CUT and HD ROTO CUT.

The new 360° rotor, specifically designed for ROTO CUT and HD ROTO CUT, delivers consistently better-shaped bales, particularly when working with a small swath.

VARIANT 485-460

Pick-up clutch.

As in the QUADRANT, the shear bolt has been replaced by a pick-up coupling as standard in all pick-ups with roller crop presses. This allows you to utilise the full power and speed of your press without risking possible shear bolt breakage.

VARIANT 485-460

Hydraulically lowered PRO cutting floor.

The cutting floor is fitted with an early warning alarm and automatically adjusts to the crop flow. On the rare occasions when a blockage occurs, you can clear it easily from the cab.
