The ideal header for high area outputs.
With a working width of 9.0 m, the 490plus is the largest harvesting header of the 400plus series. It is characterised by six equally sized drums which transport the crop to the chopper.
When harvesting maize over 4.00 m, odd row width for example 38 inch (=96 cm), thin stemmed crops and extreme laid crops, the 490plus shows its real ability.
Wide range of applications: Maize, sorghum, sunflowers, whole crop silage, oilseed rape, hemp, pampas grass, etc. Two mechanically driven crop dividers for heavily laid crops, height adjustable crop lifters.
It is not only in the field that the 400plus series is an innovation: the headers have important advantages on the public roads. The comfort support wheel automatically ensures maximum safety and meets with the most stringent road traffic regulations. The driver has a perfect view of the road. Easy turning and optimised weight also simplify transport. When the machine is folded, two safety covers are automatically put in place an both sides of the machine. The integrated lights are automatically connected, too. Uncomfortable manual attaching and detaching now belong to the past. This helps to save valuable time – the driver does not need to leave the cab. The SPFH is very quickly ready for chopping, which results in increased productivity. The comfort support wheel is o ffered for 8, 10 and 12 row, 400plus series headers for attachment to Claas SPFH.
Integrated lights are automatically connected with an electric coupler.
Fully automatic folding of the two side covers.
The wheel is parked while chopping, no extra weight carried on the header.
Row independent cutting system with high speed cutting rotors and freewheel mechanism. Cuts across the entire cutting width by means of enclosed saw type rotor blades with replaceable segments. Fast rotating cutting rotors also cut under heavy circumstances, for example, weeds or whole crop silage.
Tungsten carbide coated saw type blades, manufactured with quality certification, self sharpening, lower load placed on clutches and transmissions. Available as service set.
The 300plus series features special shaped cleaners. The sharp edged maize stubble is broken up by the cleaners placed under the cutting rotors. This not only protects the tyres of the forage harvester, but also speeds up the decomposition of the stubble.
