Using scales fitted in the bale ramp, the actual weighing process takes place automatically as part of the formation of each bale, so that there is no delay in the baling operation. Bales can be weighed at vehicle speeds of up to 20 km/h and the maximum measurement value error under normal working conditions is +/-5 kg.
Smooth and efficient invoicing
The driver can read the individual bale weight directly from the ISOBUS control terminal display in the cab. In addition, all bale weights are saved according to job or area, as valuable supporting data for the contractor when billing the customer.
As an additional customer service, using the CLAAS TELEMATICS system it will also be possible to use the bale weight data to generate the total area yield and the yield distribution by individual field, showing the bale location and the individual bale weights, along with the bale moisture level.
High-end lighting system
As an option, the QUADRANT 4200, 5200 and 5300 models can be fitted with a new high-end LED lighting system, consisting of seven additional high-quality lights. These lights are fitted on key operating components of the baler, for example at the drawbar, on the flywheel, on the feed rake and at the end of the bale chamber, ensuring user-friendly operation and maintenance when working at night.
QUADRANT 4200 with pull-out knife drawer
A new optional feature for the QUADRANT 4200 is the pull-out knife drawer that has already proven its value as standard equipment in the QUADRANT 5200 and 5300 ROTOCUT & FINECUT models.
Being able to simply pull out the knife drawer dramatically reduces the time required for knife cleaning or to complety change over the knives – from one hour to around 15 minutes. This time saving will be a real boon for contractors, particularly at the height of the harvesting season, making it easier to care for the knives, resulting in a better cut quality and throughput.
