Twenty-five years ago, when the first XERION tractor hit the market, it set new standards in multifunctionality and versatility in high-horsepower tractors. Boasting four attachment and body areas, an enormous payload capacity, a rotating cab, and continuously variable transmission – it marked not only its own story but also a new beginning for Claas as a manufacturer of combine harvesters, forage equipment, and tractors.
CLAAS’ CROP TIGER combine harvester can harvest over 80 different crops at one time, and its wheeled and tracked versions can be used in all conditions, making this machine the ideal solution for Chandigarh in Northern India, where weather and soil conditions make combining operations possible. Furthermore, CLAAS produces another version of their XERION range that uses crawler tracks – offering even greater versatility in combining operations.
CLAAS recently unveiled a variant of its XERION series tractor known as TRAC TS with crawler tracks, Stage-5 engines, and CEBIS operating system – available on both 5000 and 4500 models with 530 and 490 horsepower, respectively. These crawler units feature 762mm (30-inch) tracks to increase footprint by 25% while still keeping an external width under three meters.
The tracks feature a unique design to reduce noise and vibration while providing excellent traction, featuring integral damping components and mid-rollers mounted bogie-mounted mid-rollers to follow ground contours, providing maximum traction in any type of ground condition while minimizing track stress. Both the Xerion Trac and Terra Trac models can reach speeds up to 50km/h (31mph), require half the steering effort required by comparable dual tire tractor models, and support both 4-wheel and trailed rear-wheel steering; additionally, Xerion Trac models offer Dynamic Steering functionality which reduces effort by 40%!
CLAAS’ XERION 5000 Series tractor boasts an optional hydraulic flow rate of up to 140 gallons per minute, providing enough power to handle even the largest air seeders and tillage implements on the market. Meanwhile, its 12 Trac model provides 3100 Nm of torque, capable of driving even powerful tillage tools and grain carts on sale today.

How Does the Claas Xerion With Zuidberg Tracks Provide Stability?

Tracks provide great stability when driving over bumps or around corners, helping drivers maintain control over the machine and avoid becoming distracted by its movements, according to Ressmeyer.
Stability allows the Xerion Trac TS to handle heavy loads at high speeds, even at full capacity. When equipped with tracks, its top speed reaches 32 km per hour – much faster than if fitted with tires alone.
Claas emphasizes that their tracks are more durable and less likely to wear, meaning operators won’t need to replace them as often. Furthermore, the Xerion’s tracks can pivot up to 10 degrees to aid with turning. Ressmeyer confirms this.
Though not yet available for sale in North America, we can’t wait to see what CLAAS has planned for its next-generation tractors and will keep you posted when more details become available. We promise!

Are You Searching for a Claas Xerion with Tracks? Good News! Claas recently announced its plans to develop a version of its popular tractor with tracks. BRUDER Spielwaren recently posted what appears to be an early prototype picture displaying what looks like intelligent power from this new tractor’s tracks; its shear force can provide incredible shear force while simultaneously ensuring effective transference of tractive force to the ground surface.
The track system’s four large wheels of equal size provide ideal conditions for absorbing shear force, enabling the tractor to pull wide tillage tools and perform grading work without experiencing shear force shocks. Furthermore, its slope traversing capability enables it to traverse slopes up to 45 degrees with minimal ground pressure reduction, making it suitable for even sensitive land types.
CLAAS‘ Xerion tractor lineup will receive upgrades in 2023 with a new transmission and increased hydraulic power. Both TRAC VC configurations of 5000 and 4500 models will offer up to 530hp power output while an Eccom 5.5 continuously variable transmission is designed to efficiently transfer engine power and ensure higher productivity at low, fuel-saving rpm levels.
XERION machines harness all their power effectively thanks to their near-even weight distribution front-to-back. Their chassis and axles have been engineered so as to carry no more than 55% of the total weight on one axle while 45% is distributed across both axles; for situations requiring different ballasting solutions, modular stacking systems can also be added onto these tractors.
The XERION’s powerful hydraulics make it simple to run high-performance implements like air seeders and manure tanks with ease. The tractor can accommodate a maximum front PTO weight capacity of 17600 pounds, as well as three-point hitch points on its rear linkage capable of lifting Category IV implements. Furthermore, its luxurious four-post deluxe cab comes equipped with canted glass that improves visibility – this helps minimize impacts, noise vibration, and roll. All this ensures operators can work comfortably while working.

Claas recently demonstrated this unique feature of their Xerion 5000 Trac 4wd tractor during a demo tour organized by them. Watch a short video clip here of this happening.
The track system is easy to set up and offers greater flexibility for its operator. Low maintenance costs make the rubber track system cost-effective; additionally, all standard implements can be combined for optimal efficiency, meaning the Xerion can even be used for tasks such as harrowing and light digging without major modifications being necessary.
CLAAS also offers an extensive range of accessories to complement and optimize performance and reliability on their Xerion 5000 Trac tractor model, such as optional mudguards, hydraulic winches, and additional axles. Furthermore, there are various intelligent features that simplify operation and maintenance – for instance, the engine oil filter is conveniently placed within its full frame to facilitate quick servicing; transmission axle and front hydraulic oil change intervals also tend to be longer compared with other tractor models.
These innovations ensure the Xerion delivers confident power with a refined ride, high transport speeds, outstanding fuel economy, and a whisper-quiet cab. Furthermore, its next-generation CEBIS operating system comes equipped with various new functions, allowing up to 20 different function buttons to be individually programmed by users.
