The Axion 800 tractor model series from Claas will be supplemented by two new models in time for the SIMA 2015 trade fair.

With the new 800 and 820 models, Claas is introducing additional functions and equipment options across the range and, with the Axion 800 model, which has a power output of 205hp, Claas now offers an additional tractor model between the Arion 600 and Axion 800 model series.

The second-generation Axion 800 was launched two years ago at the SIMA trade fair. It was the first Claas tractor to meet the requirements of the Stage IV emissions level.

Nine months later at the Agritechnica 2013 trade fair, Claas presented the Axion 800 Cmatic with continuously variable transmission and won two international awards: Tractor of the Year 2014 for the Axion 850 and the Machine of the Year 2014 for the Axion 800 Cmatic model series.

The company also received an award for its design in the same year, with the Axion 800 model series winning gold at the renowned iF Design Awards.

Test reports issued by the German Agricultural Society, DLG, back up these awards with figures - using only 248g per kWh of diesel fuel, the Axion 850 Hexashift achieved the best result to date of all tractors in its power category in the DLG-PowerMix tests.

With the two new 800 and 820 models, the Axion 800 model series now includes six models ranging from 205hp to 264hp, optionally available with the Hexashift power shift transmission or continuously variable Cmatic variant and with the two operation concepts of CIS and/or CEBIS.

CIS is the basic version with mechanical control units and the Claas Information System is ideal for customers who require a tractor with fewer electronic controls.

Tractors with the Claas Electronic on-Board Information System, or CEBIS, are equipped with electronic control units and the CEBIS terminal integrated in the armrest.

The CEBIS version includes intelligent headland and implement management functions as well as comprehensive connections for Isobus devices.

The functions of both the tractor and the equipment are controlled using function keys in the armrest or the Cmotion multifunction lever.
