Self-Pro­pelled Technology


We offer pro­fes­sion­al goose­neck tankers as single axle (LT), tandem (GT) and tridem (GT) for the CLAAS XERION. The LT (Little Tank) single-axle tanker can also be fitted to a JCB Fastrac with the enor­mous advan­tages of manoeu­vra­bil­i­ty and weight trans­fer. This means that the weight of the tanker is trans­ferred direct­ly to the trac. As a result, more trac­tion is achieved in the field. In addi­tion, the tractor can turn more than 90° in front of the tanker. Accord­ing­ly, the tractor-trailer com­bi­na­tion can be brought back to working posi­tion more quickly after the head­land. Less manoeu­vring also means less soil com­paction. The trans­port length of the tractor-trailer unit is also minimised.

BAUER Tandem/Tridem goose­neck tanker

The GT goose­neck tankers have been devel­oped for the CLAAS XERION Trac and Trac VC type 783. As stan­dard, the GT tanker (goose­neck) is man­u­fac­tured as a tridem (30,000 l). The enor­mous advan­tage of a goose­neck tanker is its manoeu­vra­bil­i­ty and the weight trans­fer to the trac which is limited to a maximum of 15 tonnes. These 15 to are achieved on the one hand by a two-chamber system and on the other by unload­ing the first axle. It is there­fore also pos­si­ble to fit attach­ments up to 7 to, depend­ing on the attach­ment length, without a neg­a­tive ver­ti­cal load.

Facts and figures

As stan­dard, the goose­neck tanker is equipped with a 9,000 l rotary piston pump from Vogel­sang. With a 12,000 l rotary piston pump, the tanker’s filling time is between 3.5 and 4 minutes. Even at rel­a­tive­ly high speeds (10 km/h) and large strip widths (36 metres hose appli­ca­tor), an appli­ca­tion rate of 20 m³/ha is pos­si­ble. The rapid emp­ty­ing of the tanker results in an enor­mous increase in capac­i­ty, reason why espe­cial­ly BAUER pro­fes­sion­al cus­tomers opt for this tech­nol­o­gy. After all, in the pro­fes­sion­al sector it is not uncom­mon for the tech­nol­o­gy to be used 24/7.

Front unit

Our front unit impress­es with its enor­mous range of approx. 8 m, flex­i­bil­i­ty, ease of oper­a­tion and performance.

We install a special Bucher hydraulic block includ­ing control box in the front unit so that the front unit is com­plete­ly sep­a­rat­ed from the actual oil supply and control tech­nol­o­gy of the slurry system. As the XERION can guar­an­tee an LS supply at the front and rear, this sep­a­ra­tion is pos­si­ble without any prob­lems. Thus, sources of error are min­imised and unnec­es­sar­i­ly long oil ducts are avoided. The front unit can be swiv­elled by 160°, it is equipped with a stone cage, a Vogel­sang RotaCut, a manual filling nozzle, working lights and light­ing com­ply­ing with the road traffic reg­u­la­tions. The front unit is also equipped with an inte­grat­ed float­ing posi­tion which allows height adjust­ment during the suction process. The feeder increas­es in height and the self-pro­pelled unit becomes heavier. The float­ing posi­tion min­imis­es unnec­es­sary wear. The pro­por­tion­al joy­stick ensures a very sen­si­tive control of the arm. So anyone can find the suction point in no time at all.
