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.
