TERRA TRAC on AXION.

The AXION 900 TERRA TRAC from CLAAS is the first half-track tractor with full suspension. Its key innovation is the inclusion of the suspended TERRA TRAC crawler track system. This is based on the technology currently in use with combine harvesters but has been specially adapted to meet the requirements of tractors. Currently still at the prototype stage, the AXION 900 TERRA TRAC will, in the near future, combine the advantages of a tracklaying tractor in terms of traction and soil protection, with the more convenient drive characteristics of a conventional standard tractor. Thanks to its individually suspended rollers, the crawler track system permanently guarantees optimum ground contact and a maximum contact area, making the AXION 900 TERRA TRAC comfortable and efficient on the road and in the field, even when travelling at high speeds of up to 40 km/h.

How you benefit:

  • Very high tractive power and fuel efficiency through high traction and minimal slippage, even during heavy tillage at low speed
  • Soil protection: large contact area prevents tractor from sinking into ground and soil compaction
  • Operating reliability: high mobility, even under difficult conditions through ability to negotiate surfaces with reduced load-bearing capability
  • High driving comfort at up to 40 km/h through intelligent suspension of crawler track system
  • Flexibility through more compact dimensions than the version with wide or twin tyres

The large drive wheel allows high torque transmission.

Despite its large contact area, the AXION 900 TERRA TRAC is narrower than the version with wide or twin tyres.

The independent suspension of the drive wheel, land wheel and support rollers allows the crawler track unit to adapt optimally to the ground surface.

Thanks to the large contact area, the AXION 900 TERRA TRAC can transmit its pulling power to the ground efficiently with maximum traction.
