Compact Torion joins growing Claas loader range

Claas has introduced an entry-level Torion loader and given a power boost to the two existing models in the range.

The new 530 is propelled by a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder Yanmar engine rated to 46hp, and has a modest top speed of 20kph. A 61-litre/min hydraulic system allows for a 3,000kg maximum articulated tipping load and it is able to clear heights of up to 2.82m.

Meanwhile, the larger 535 and 639 models that complete the three-model line-up of compact Torions have had their Yanmar engines uprated to 74hp. These are coupled to a 30kph hydrostatic transmission and the option of a standard or High-Lift boom.

The standard version 535 will reach to 2.82m, while the 639 is good for 2.98m. The High-Lift versions can reach 2.97m and 3.18m, respectively.

Hydraulic power comes from either a 70- or 80-litre/min pump for the larger machines, with articulated tipping loads of 3,500kg for the 535 and 3,900kg for the 639.

The trio of compact loaders have also been given a redesigned cab, with built-in storage compartments and improved visibility due to the curved front windscreen. Handily, the height of the two smaller models remains below 2.5m when shod with 340/80 R18 tyres.
