Unmatched and efficient. The drive.

Trend-setting advantages: setting the pace for two decades.

The revolutionary drive concept of the JAGUAR was developed by CLAAS engineers in 1993 and still sets the standard today. The direct power transmission has proven itself thousands of times over in practical use. For this generation of the JAGUAR we have again stayed true to our tradition with a transverse engine arrangement.

  • The chopping mechanism is driven directly from the engine main clutch via a pre-tensioned powerband – entirely maintenance-free
  • The disc brake attached to the main clutch ensures that the chopping mechanism stops rapidly when the main drive is switched off, thereby enhancing safety, QUICK STOP
  • The direct drive enables highly efficient power transmission while also keeping the specific power requirement low – high efficiency
  • The front attachment is driven mechanically, the connection is provided by a quick coupling – extremely convenient

The JAGUAR drive line.

Tough, reliable and low-maintenance. Five features guarantee top efficiency:

  1. Transverse-mounted engines
  2. Direct powerband drive from engine to chopping assembly and accelerator
  3. The corncracker is driven directly from the accelerator by a powerband
  4. QUICK STOP – active braking brings the crop flow to a halt quickly when the main drive is disengaged
  5. The shaft drive to the front attachment is connected via a quick coupler

Clear and straightforward. Hydraulic and electrical systems.

The hydraulics.

The hydraulic valves are clearly laid out on the left side of the machine. Proportional valves for the discharge spout and front attachment control system make for a smoother response when these systems are functioning automatically. In order to leave a consistent stubble profile, even when operating at very high ground speeds, the swivel speed of the ORBIS lateral levelling mechanism, for example, can be adjusted as required in CEBIS.

The vibration damping system is activated automatically once the headland is reached and the front attachment raised past the working height. This additional convenience feature reduces wear and tear on the machine when crossing sprayer wheelings, for example. The front attachment is protected by a correspondingly gentle suspension response.

  • Clearly laid-out hydraulic system
  • Rapid implementation of function commands
  • Efficient control by proportional valves
  • Cost-effective maintenance thanks to low-volume oil system

The electrical system.

A straightforward, convenient control concept demands a fast, reliable electrical system. In the JAGUAR, all the key components are housed securely and centrally in the cab. An expansion box in the maintenance compartment of the JAGUAR allows additional options to be easily accommodated - for instance if retrofitting:

  • NIR Sensor
  • 300 l auxiliary diesel tank


  • Electrics housed securely in cab
  • Reliable, high-quality cable connections
  • High-quality expansion box for adaptation of additional variants
