Claas has announced updates to its line of Xerion 4WD tractors for 2023 including powertrain upgrades and improved hydraulic flow.
The enhancements for 2023 will be available on the Xerion 5000 and 4500 models in TRAC or TRAC VC configurations.
“We designed the XERION to be our customers’ favored choice for true tractor capability,” says Frans Reijmers, tractor product manager for Claas. “The enhancements to 2023 models build on its core strengths and provide the power, a better balance in the design, and operator confidence that makes tackling those all-day, tough jobs more convenient than ever.”
Built for implements
The Xerion tractors are offered in a range of 435 to 530 hp. The updated models run on the brand new Eccom 5.5 CVT, a 4-range CVT that’s designed to better transfer the engine’s torque and power to increase efficiency. These tractors can hit a maximum forward speed of 31 mph at a low, fuel-saving rpm.
With the new Eccom 5.5, the tractors also have higher hydraulic flow than previous models. The Xerion has up to six double-acting rear spool valves, and a brand new pump transfer gearbox. Optional tandem pumps allow oil flow up to 111 gallons per minute, designed to work with high oil flow implements like wide air seeders.
Up to two spool valves, three with the optional tandem pump, can be prioritized in Claas’ CEBIS touch display system.
An optional separate 120 hp. Hydraulic system with 66 gallons per minute at 3,770 psi is available for attachments such as manure tanks and front-mounted implements that require high-horsepower hydraulics. A hydraulic dual-circuit trailer brake can also be installed on the Xerion models.
A new base weight plate for the multi-purpose carrier space behind the cab is also available on the 2023 Xerion tractors. With the new system, up to 15,432 pounds of additional ballast weight can be loaded on the tractor. Depending on the application, the Xerion can be balanced for a 50/50 weight distribution.
