VARIANT 470 / 450

ROTOR and ROTOR FEED.

Again, it's all about just one thing.

Rotor and ROTO FEED.

  • Solid to the core: the rotor gets the bale turning
  • The core compaction can be set on demand from the comfort of the cab
  • The rotor fills the bale chamber more evenly allowing more crop to be processed
VARIANT 470 / 450

The rotor feeds the crop into the baling chamber where the bale is forced to start rotating immediately.

VARIANT 470 / 450

Optimal core compaction to produce extremely high bale weights and a storable, uniform bale shape from the start.

VARIANT 470 / 450

With a belt speed of 2.90 m/s, the VARIANT can process more than many other round balers, and requires significantly less time to bind the bale.

Unique to CLAAS: the rotor gets the bale rolling.

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

Benefits that you can see in every minute of operation, because you can operate the VARIANT at full speed all the time.

Core compaction on demand.

You can determine the core compaction in regard to forage quality, and control this conveniently from the cab – for example, maximum core compaction with straw, or a soft core with hay. You can also choose between three default settings, or use two freely adjustable parameters.

Even filling of the bale chamber.

A further benefit: the standard feed rotor delivers a uniform crop flow to the bale chamber, allowing significantly more crop to be processed per unit time, and, as a result, you can operate the VARIANT at incredibly high work rates.
