Automatic front attachment guidance and front attachment detection.

In order to ensure optimum following of the ground contours, CLAAS front attachments are equipped with the CONTOUR, AUTO CONTOUR and MULTI CONTOUR automatic front attachment guidance systems for ideal results at all times.

Automatic front attachment guidance.

CONTOUR.

The cutterbar with CONTOUR adjusts automatically to ground irregularities along the direction of travel.

  • CONTOUR = automatic longitudinal adjustment of the front attachment
  • The required cutting height can be set via CEBIS
  • The active cutting height is controlled by CONTOUR
  • Longitudinal control can be overridden by the operator at any time

AUTO CONTOUR.

AUTO CONTOUR goes one step further and also enables automatic compensation for surface irregularities across the direction of travel.

  • AUTO CONTOUR = automatic transverse and longitudinal adjustment of the front attachment
  • The required cutting height can be set via CEBIS
  • The active cutting height is controlled by AUTO CONTOUR
  • Transverse and longitudinal control can be overridden by the operator at any time

Advantages for you.

  • Valve-controlled, nitrogen-filled accumulators ensure optimal shock absorption with front attachments of different weights
  • Improved front attachment guidance, especially for wide front attachments
  • Easier front attachment guidance in laid crops, in darkness and in sloping terrain
  • Significant reduction in workload for the operator, enabling greater concentration on threshing

Detection on initial contact.

To help prepare your combine harvester more quickly, the VARIO, CERIO, CONVIO and MAXFLEX front attachments provide it with the key data it requires the first time they are attached. The front attachment and ground-contour following characteristics are matched precisely to the machine. This saves operators a considerable amount of time as there is no need for them to repeat set-up and learning procedures.

All four cutterbars provide the following data:

  • Front attachment type
  • Working width
  • Number of sections
  • Set values to configure sensitivity of AUTO CONTOUR system: cutting height control, preset cutting height and, where necessary, angle of HP feeder housing
  • Height for activation of area calculation

Saved when detached.

All cutterbars automatically save the key data for the next deployment each time they are detached from the machine. These data include the reel advance, the end stops for AUTO CONTOUR, the sensitivity of AUTO CONTOUR and the height for activation of the area calculation. These values are then available to the combine harvester at the next harvest, even if a maize picker is fitted and removed during the intervening autumn period.
