If you tend a crop of grain on steep slopes, help is at hand with the new generation of CLAAS TUCANO harvesters.

The German manufacturer recently introduced its leveling system on the slope of Montana for the first time in the series the Toucan, which now has several new models, including the top-of-the-range TUCANO 580.

The new terminal CEBIS and complements features on the latest machines that will be available in all markets for the harvest of 2019.

However, the benefits don’t end there – the operator assistance system Automatic trimming of the thread that controls the flow of grass that combine to up to a maximum, and automatic tilt that adjusts the fan speed to ensure minimum losses and optimum grain farming purity, is now also available in these combines, with grain tank capacity of up to 11000 litres.


Series TUCANO for 2018 was extended for a total of eight models, ranging from new 245л TUCANO TUCANO 320 to 580 381л.

In addition, there are 245л 420, 430 286л, 286л 440, 450 313л, 354hp 354hp 560 and 570 models.

All machines are equipped with engines of Mercedes Benz, which correspond to stage V (level 5) emission standard, and dynamic power.

Dynamic power appeared on Jaguar forage harvesters, coincides with the power curve of the motor to the prevailing operating conditions.

If less energy is required, e.g., when not cut, and just leave the roll, engine Power, therefore, decreases fuel economy and money.

On the other hand, if more power is needed, for example when unloading, full power available once again. Machines offer additional opportunities for savings by reducing full-load engine speed to 1900 rpm and reducing the idle speed to 850 rpm.


Klaas decided to offer a levelling system slope Montana five models TUCANO ex-factory for the first time. The slope of 16pc, 18pc, or to at TUCANO 430 and 560 models, can be compensated by the system. In the field, all functions are performed automatically with the current tilt and cutting angle displayed in CEBIS.

Model MT is equipped with two-speed manual transmission with automatic adjustment of the engine load. In both gears, there are two ranges of the transmission are selected based on load on the base drive. No manual selection is necessary, as the machine automatically switches to the Lower range of the drive when you need high thrust.

All-wheel-drive new bridge in the model MT offers up to 70pc more traction compared to standard all-wheel-drive axle. Differential lock for the front axle are available as options.

Slope levelling is also available for APS hybrid TUCANO 580, 570 and 560 machines as well as for APS six Walker TUCANO 450 and APS five Walker TUCANO 430.


New TUCANO combines the functions of a new terminal with touch screen CEBIS in the cab, which, combined with the updated armrest that allows the operator to control all the basic functions of the combine intuitively without any prior knowledge of the machine.

CEBIS can be controlled, as before, using control panel, but also through direct access to the functions through the touch screen. A touch of a finger on a current block of an image, for example, activates friendly dialogue to adjust the speed of the drum. Here, too, the operator makes the adjustment intuitively, in a familiar way that when you change settings on the smartphone.

All basic machine functions can also be adjusted using the switches on the armrest. CEBIS supplements this mode, the fastest access control system, favorites, the operator determines the specific functions of the machine control, which can be caused by very quickly when needed by using the buttons on the object multifunctional control lever.

Excellent visibility under all conditions is ensured by a wide range of control parameters of the terminal. It can be rotated from its normal position in the field of vision fully the right, next to the armrest.

This means that the operator still has full control over the entire cutting apparatus even when operating on the edge of the field or in laid crops.


Automatic flow of the crop, the operator of the system, previously available only in a series of lexion combine, now available in the model Tucano for the first time.

This system uses sensors to constantly monitor the speed of the drum APS, system of residual grain separation, straw chopper and the engine, and automatically react and alert the operator to potential clogging or overloading. This allows the operator to confidently push the combine closer to their performance limits under different conditions, and also ideal when the harvester is operated by less experienced operators.

New feature auto-tilt in TUCANO is already proven in the lexion and ensures a clean sample and minimal loss of on uneven terrain. The system continuously regulates the fan speed depending on the angle of the combine.

When working uphill, the fan speed is automatically reduced, to avoid loss, and then increased again as it goes down, to make sure the grain is cleaned enough.

Grain tank on the larger models has also been increased to 11 000 litres, including versions of MT, and the automatic valve on a discharge screw reliably prevents the outflow of the residual crop, even if the auger is still full.

Standard specifications for the latest models TUCANO also includes:

Question feeder housing dust extraction system for increased visibility in dusty conditions and at night;

The issue of profitability is shown in CEBIS and can be evaluated along with the loss;

The question is more storage space for tools and parts repairs;

Q additional and increased the maintenance for the engine system of residual grain separation;

Question on Board water tank for washing hands.
