Claas has launched a new generation of front loaders for its Elios, Axos and Arion tractors.

Succeeding the FL C series, the six newly designed models cover lift capacities from 940 to 2,490kg (measured 80cm in front of the bucket pivot point) and a breakaway force from 1,820 to 3,120kg. Maximum lift heights at the bucket pivot point range from 3.50 to 4.50m, and all hydraulic hoses are integrated into the frame.

The double-angled boom shifts the pivot point mechanism of the parallelogram downwards by more than 20cm. This combined with the 10cm lower front crossbeam is said to improve operator visibility of the attachment and area in front of the tractor.

The Fitlock coupling system from the previous models has been retained. The locking mechanism is fully automatic and entirely mechanical. With the Mach multi-coupling system, all hydraulic and electrical lines can be connected to the tractor without any additional plug connections.

With the optional hydraulic Fastlock system, attachments can be locked at the press of a button from the cab, in addition to automatic mechanical locking. Third and fourth functions can be connected via the Mach 2 multi-coupler. A pressure relief function for the third function is optional.

Other options include LED work lights and a function to automatically return a tipped bucket to the horizontal loading position.
