CLAAS Axion 960
Launched in 2017 as part of a major overhaul of the Axion 900 series, the CLAAS Axion 960 is the top-of-the-range model with immense pulling and lifting power.
Its FPT 8.7-litre, six-cylinder engine has a maximum output 445 hp, to offer maximum torque of 1860 Nm and achieve a top speed of 50 kph. Combined with a rear hitch with a maximum rated lift of 11250 kg, the CLAAS Axion 960 is capable of everything from demanding field work with large attachments to dynamic road transport. The CMATIC continuously variable transmission also provides powerful acceleration and smooth deceleration.
The cab is available in a straightforward, intuitive CIS+ version as well as an advanced CEBIS version that boasts a host of high-end assistance functions and additional display terminals. Both versions feature air-conditioning and four-point cab suspension as standard, as well as wide-angle side mirrors for added safety during road transport.
The CLAAS Axion 960 is also available in a TERRA TRAC (TT) version, which features a rear crawler track assembly to minimise soil compaction and provide added traction. This helps to promote long-term fertility, particularly in soil types vulnerable to compaction.
The CLAAS Axion 960 CEMOS was named Sustainable Tractor of the Year 2021, recognising its fuel-efficient technologies and optimisations. In 2017, the CLAAS Axion 900 TERRA TRAC models won a Silver medal in the Innovation Award at Agritechnica 2017 for their unique suspension systems.
