Claas updates tyre inflation systems

The most powerful of the revised CTIC and CTIC 2800 tyre inflation systems provides 2,800lit/min of air flow and takes just one minute and 20 seconds to increase 600/70 R28 and 710/70 R38 tyre pressures from 0.8 to 1.8 bar.

Available ex-works for the Axion 900 Stage V tractors, the latest systems can also be retrofitted to the Arion 500 and 600, and Axion 800 and 900 ranges, regardless of the year of manufacture.

Operation and display is now possible via the Cebis touch or  ISObus terminals, and if programmed accordingly, it is possible to switch between field and road at the touch of a button on the function keys in the operating armrest or on the CMotion control lever.

For trailed implements such as sprayers and trailers, there is now an integrated regulation of the internal tyre pressure which uniformly controls all axles and wheels.

Large tractors of the Axion 800 and 900 ranges can integrate the CTIC control directly into the Cemos machine optimisation. This makes it possible to achieve intelligent dynamic internal tyre pressure adjustment in interaction with other parameters such as ballast. Claimed benefits of this include reduced wheel slip and diesel consumption.

Available on 2021 tractors, the revised CTIC remains road compliant with an external width of under 3.0m.
