Self-Pro­pelled Technology


The 2‑axle saddle tank with a volume of 30,700 litres is suit­able for a CLAAS XERION type 783/784 Saddle Trac. Both axles are steer­able and lock pro­por­tion­al­ly to the driving speed in road oper­a­tion. Driving in so-called “crab steer­ing” (track offset) is pos­si­ble. In addi­tion, the first axle can be mounted steer­able or tele­scop­ic. With the 900/60R42 tyres, the ground is pro­tect­ed and the trac­tive force is reduced. These 218-cen­time­tre tyres have up to 40 percent more contact surface than the com­bi­na­tion of a stan­dard tractor with a stan­dard Tridem tanker. The tanker is divided into two cham­bers so that, during dis­tri­b­u­tion, the rear chamber is emptied first and then the front chamber. This is to keep the maximum pres­sure of 15 tonnes on the Xerion for as long as pos­si­ble. Even with heavy attach­ments of six tonnes, there are no prob­lems with neg­a­tive ver­ti­cal load. In addi­tion, the pres­sure on the Xerion’s ball increas­es the tractor’s trac­tive force on the ground.

The tandem tanker for a Claas Xerion

BAUER Tandem/Tridem goose­neck tanker

A tandem saddle tank ST with a volume of 30,700 l for a CLAAS XERION Saddle Trac. This saddle tank allows for a soil-friend­ly and pro­fes­sion­al dis­tri­b­u­tion. With the 900/60 R42 tyres, the ground is pro­tect­ed and the trac­tive force is minimised.

Weight trans­fer to the trac 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 mount attach­ments up to 7 to, depend­ing on the attach­ment length, without a neg­a­tive ver­ti­cal load.

Facts and figures

As stan­dard, the saddle tank 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.
