CARGOS 8500-8300

Whether for use as a loading wagon in grass or as a forage transport wagon for maize, biomass or wood chips, the CARGOS is in demand all year round.

CARGOS 8500-8300

Whether for use as a loading wagon in grass or as a forage transport wagon for maize, biomass or wood chips, the CARGOS is in demand all year round.

Ideal crop flow.

EFFICIENT FEEDING SYSTEM.

With its EFFICIENT FEEDING SYSTEM (EFS) crop flow concept, the CARGOS is the perfect partner for green forage harvesting. With EFS, the pick-up, rotor and the floor conveyor, which is angled upwards towards the loading bay, all work hand in hand.

The floor conveyor is inclined by 500-mm to deliver the crop directly to the loading bay after chopping, with no need for a steep, narrow loading channel above the rotor. This significantly reduces the power required for loading, resulting in a lightweight, nimble machine with low fuel consumption.

The angle between the floor conveyor and the inside loading bay ensures that the material is compressed and the loading mass per cubic metre increased. The forage remains in an almost upright position and is pushed towards the rear of the wagon as a single mass, allowing an increase of up to 15 percent in the load.

Easy on the forage, agile, and efficient: the new EFS for even better crop flow.

  1. Automatic loading function via hydraulically folding headboard flap and torque detection in the drive train (optional)
  2. EFS with a floor conveyor that is inclined by 500 mm; hydraulically pivoting for convenient blade changing and rapid discharge
  3. Chopper housing structurally separate from the blade holder, and can be lowered hydraulically for easy maintenance and cleaning
  4. New CLAAS double-edged blades and innovative protection system with adjustable blade pre-tensioning
  5. Optional centre guide wheel for optimal ground-contour following
  6. Hydraulically driven pick-up reel with cam control on both sides for precise crop intake, with optional hydraulic suspension

Pick-up.

The pick-up is cam-controlled on both sides and features a 2-metre working width and five rows of tines. It can take in large quantities of material with minimum power requirements and ensures optimal crop flow. Thanks to its small diameter, it transfers even wet and short-cut material efficiently to the rotor via 13 small transition plates. The speed is also lower than in an cam-less pick-up, ensuring that the forage stays clean. The hydraulic drive system is activated by load sensing and is maintenance-free. Its smooth start-up movement additionally protects the pick-up components. The pick-up can be equipped with hydraulic suspension and a height-adjustable centre guide roller upon request. This guarantees optimal ground-contour following, especially in damp conditions, protecting both the pick-up and the grass cover.

Rotor with individual tine segments.

The low-positioned rotor with nine rows of tines arranged in a helix formation and 22 mm wide conveying bars guarantees optimum chop quality and transports the forage gently into the loading bay. Its 860-mm diameter ensures quiet operation and protects the drive train against load peaks. The rotor is set in motion by a bolted drive stub with a large spur gear. The tines are fitted on the rotor casing in three segments and bolted together. If necessary, individual tine segments can be simply and inexpensively replaced.

Lowerable chopper housing.

The CARGOS chopper housing is structurally separate from the blade holder and has a central locking function as standard. The blade holder can be swivelled away from the chopper housing for convenient blade changing.

Hydraulically folding.

The hydraulic lowering chopper housing, with a locking mechanism that can be operated from the side of the wagon, is available as an option. This further simplifies access for cleaning and maintenance operations.

Sturdy double-edged blades with hydraulic blade protection.

The CLAAS double-edged blades are sharpened on both sides and extremely robust. Their innovative shape with a broad base at the tip guarantees maximum stability and keeps the blade slot permanently closed. The 40 blades can be conveniently turned over in the course of a long working day, ensuring optimum chop quality with minimum maintenance. All blades are individually protected against damage from foreign objects and feature an automatic blade return function. The sensitivity of the blade protection can be adjusted to suit different operating conditions, thereby protecting the blades. If required, they can be folded away hydraulically.

Blade holder swings out for convenient blade changing.

With a blade holder that pivots out hydraulically and a floor conveyor that swings down by 90°, the new CARGOS dual-purpose wagon offers optimum accessibility. The central blade locking and unlocking functions make blade changing a simple task. A blade guide secures the position of the blade as they are pivoted into place.

An additional holder allows you to carry a spare set of double-edged blades. This means you always have four sets of perfectly sharpened blade edges to guarantee maximum chop quality throughout long working days in the field.

Just the job for the perfect cut.

CARGOS double-edged blades are made of special hardened alloy steel – this perfect balance between hardness and toughness maximises both service life and maximum chop quality.

CARGOS 8000

Built for the long haul.

The solid construction provides the required stability in the field. The frame has a C-profile with a height of 300 mm, along with solid uprights and side walls made from high-strength steel. The side end plates feature an additional perforation in the upper section, ensuring a clear view into the wagon during use as a forage transport wagon.

CARGOS 8000

Top forage quality.

The rotor’s 22 mm wide feed bars deliver the harvested crop to the loading bay with a maximum degree of protection. In combination with the adjustable automated loading system, optimal loading and a high forage quality are achieved even when processing wet material.

CARGOS 8000

Horizontal loading position.

The EFS crop flow system offers a further benefit: even with large-sized tyres up to 30.5", the dual-purpose wagon can be driven in a horizontal loading position. This increases the throughput performance, while reducing the power requirement. The result: the load on the axles and brakes is evenly spread, increasing their service life.

The floor conveyor

The floor conveyor can be hydraulically swung upwards into a horizontal position for optimum unloading, and downwards by 90° to provide optimal access to the loading assembly for cleaning and maintenance work, for example.

The floor conveyor has been inclined by 500 mm for easier loading, ensuring optimum crop flow in the EFS. The crop is delivered directly to the loading bay from the rotor, which not only reduces fuel consumption but also protects the crop.
