Claas launches 13m Volto tedder

Claas Volto 2Claas attracted quite a crowd to its plot with machines such as the Xerion tractor and triple mower setup. Also creating a buzz were the firm’s new Axion tractors, seen for the first time working in the UK.

Hitched to one of the company’s smaller Ares tractors was a new 13.2m tedder. Dubbed the Volto 1320T, the unit just about reaches across five 3m (10ft) swaths.

Claas terms the drivetrain – which uses a pto shaft for each individual rotor – as Permalink. The working pitch of the rotors can be adjusted from a handle on the drawbar while folding and adjustment of working height is all on one spool-valve.

Aimed at the contractor market the unit retails at £21,890.
