Maximum power outputs from the FPT Stage V engines used by the five models remain the same, rising from 205hp for the 800 to 295hp for the 870, but there is a slight increase in the torque curve.

As with the Arion, standard across all Axion 800 models will be the latest Cebis touch terminal with integrated ISObus UT, so allowing it to be used as a universal implement control terminal.

A separate terminal, such as the Claas S10, will still be needed for more advanced ISObus functions such as TC Geo for mapping and variable applications or TC SC for section control.

Other new features within the Cebis touch terminal include a USB socket for importing/exporting data, an upgrade to the implement settings and storage function, a reading for the average wheelslip, the ability to view external cameras through the Cebis screen and greater customisation of the screen layout to suit individual operator preferences.

In addition to the standard hydraulic flow of 110lit/min with an option of 150lit/min, there is now a further 205lit/min option.

An engine speed memo button can also now be linked to the external PTO button through Cebis, and the PTO system itself now features an uprated seven-plate clutch.

In the cab, there is now the option of a leather steering wheel, which will be standard in higher specification Cebis extra leather pack versions. A Grammer EVO dual motion seat is now also available, which is heated, ventilated and comes with a tilting headrest. Twin brake pedals are now fitted as standard along with a tinted rear window.

Externally, these latest models are denoted by the new bonnet detailing first introduced on the new Arion 600/500 range last year, and the 800 is now fitted with LED flashing lights and a flexible bottom step.
