CLAAS Arion 420
German manufacturer CLAAS released its Arion 400 series tractors in 2009 as compact, agile tractors equipped with the functionality and technology of high-end models. The CLAAS Arion 420 achieves exactly that, combining exceptional manoeuvrability with impressive performance for a tractor of its size.
The Arion 420 (model year 2020) has a DPS 4.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that develops maximum output of 110 hp (boosted to 120 hp by the CLAAS Power Management (CPM) system). It is available with either a 16-gear QUADRISHIFT transmission or a 24-gear HEXASHIFT transmission and has a maximum speed of 40 kph.
Numerous factors contribute to the excellent handling and manoeuvrability of the CLAAS Arion 420. The wasp-waist front axle, for example, effectively distributes the five-tonne unladen weight to maximise stability and tractive power, including on uneven ground. Additionally, the compact tractor’s tight turning circle and range of optional steering systems – including the GPS COPILOT and advanced, ultra-precise GPS PILOT FLEX – ensure operation with a high degree of accuracy.
The CLAAS Arion 420 is available with various cab choices, from low-roof and high-roof versions to the CLAAS PANORAMIC cab, which won a Gold medal at the SIMA Innovation Awards 2015. This high-visibility option is ideal for front loader operation, with the front crossbar removed and a continuous windscreen and sunroof in its place. Additionally, the cab features air conditioning and an adjustable steering column as standard, along with an ergonomic multi-functional lever and a logically arranged instrument panel for efficient, productive operation.
