CLAAS has announced it will introduce a new automatic tyre inflation system across its AXION and ARION series of tractors.

Offering an air delivery rate of up to 2800 L/min via an auxiliary compressor, CLAAS claims the system can adjust the tyre pressure in 600/70 R28 and 710/70 R38 tyres from 0.8 bar (12 psi) to 1.8 bar (26 psi) in less than 80 seconds. 

Available as a factory fit option for all AXION 900 Stage V tractors, the CTIC or CTIC 2800 inflation systems can also be retrofitted to existing ARION 900/800 and ARION 600/500 series machines, regardless of their year of manufacture. The system can be controlled via any ISOBUS terminal, such as the CLAAS S10 or the new CLAAS CEMIS 700. 

“The operator can switch between field and road pressure at the touch of a button using one of the function keys in the operating armrest or on the CMOTION control lever,” explains CLAAS Harvest Centre product manager Luke Wheeler.

Based on ‘dialogue’, at the start of a job, the driver enters a range of information – such as soil humidity, soil type and working depth. As well as machine data, such as tractor tyres and front, rear or wheel ballast and implement data into the CEBIS touchscreen terminal. 

The system then recommends the best pressure for the front and rear tyres to reduce wheel slip, ground damage and diesel consumption.
