More powerful Torions and new options

With more engine power and a higher lift capacity, the 1913 and 2014 are the new flagship models in the Claas range. The 1511P is also new at the top end of the mid-range line-up, and new options on the other models includes joystick steering.

The Liebherr four-pot block in the range-topping 1913 (222hp) and 2014 (249hp) achieves its maximum power at 1,150rpm and torque at 1,100rpm.

The 10cm extended wheelbase on both models has allowed the loading height and reach to be increased. The longer lift arm has increased the height of the bucket pivot point by 23.5cm to 4.15m, both with agricultural kinematics and Z-kinematics (4.70m with the new Z-HL Highlift kinematics).

Sitting at the top end of the mid-range series, the 6.8-litre six-pot DPS Stage V block in the 1511P is mounted crosswise and well back in the machine. This means less extra ballast is needed at the rear.

Described as a power-packed model with a power-to-weight ratio of 62kg/hp and a maximum torque of 900Nm at 1,600rpm, Claas says the 1511P has sufficient reserve capacity for the highest clamps.

The hydraulic oil pump capacity on the VariPower drive has been increased and the maximum available flow rate of the load-sensing hydraulics of 228l/min is 58l/min more than the 1511.

 Tyres of up to 750/65 R26 can be fitted and the mudguards on the front wheels can be adjusted inwards by up to 10cm when working up against silage clamp walls. The height can also be adjusted by up to 36cm.

New mid-range features and options

New options on the other Torion mid-range models (1177, 1410 and 1511) include joystick steering, which can be used instead of the steering wheel for routine tasks (Dynamic steering is still available as an option).

There is a new control panel in the right-hand armrest, while the curve radius of the front windscreen has been reduced towards the front to provide an undistorted view.

Other new options include an integrated weighing system, tyre pressure monitoring system in the terminal and a stainless steel exhaust pipe.
