P for professional.

The same cutterbar technology for all, regardless of working width. You'll find the P-CUT cutterbar throughout the machine range, for example in the COUGAR, which is the biggest self-propelled mower in the world, or the large-area mowers, but you'll also find it in the smaller DISCO models for small and medium-sized farms. P-CUT - professional technology for top class forage harvest quality.

P for perfect cut.

A small recess produces a big effect. The tunnel effect produced by an indentation on the underside of the cutterbar causes dirt firstly to empty out directly, and secondly, to be thoroughly brushed away from the cutterbar by the stationary stubble. No clumps of dirt are left behind, nor does mowing produce a striped effect ­ the cut is perfect.

The large overlap of the cutting discs in front of the cutterbar will produce a clean and even cutting quality. All of the housing bolts in the cutting zone are recessed.

8

P-CUT. With CLAAS, the word "Professional" applies right down to a 2.60 m working width.

P-CUT Bar technology

9

P for power drive.

Smooth running, low-wear power transmission and a long lifecycle thanks to: · Slowly turning main wheels of a large diameter, hence many crown-shaped teeth in operation to ensure low wear. · Separate drive for each cutting disc via an upstream pinion which only has to transmit a fraction of the total power. · 24 mm forged gearwheels in high quality spring steel. · Gearing is able to absorb significant shocks effectively.

P for patented solution ­ SAFETYLINK.

With our unique SAFETYLINK safety module featured on the P-CUT cutterbar, safety for both man and machine remains a priority for us. · Defined shear points on every cutting disc reliably and effectively prevent cutterbar damage in the event of severe impact with an obstruction. · Satellite pinion gear and bearing or the complete module are replaced quickly. · Minimum downtime during harvest.

Safety for everyone.

If the SAFETYLINK is activated after a large obstacle has been hit, the cutting disc stays firmly in place. The hexagon bolt located in the pinion shaft prevents the cutting disc from flying off. Minimising the risk of further damage.

10

P-CUT. Permanent reliability.

Stable bearing.

The cutting discs of the P-CUT bar are mounted in a highstrength double angular contact bearing, such as is also used also in automotive applications. · Very high level of durability under all load conditions. · Absorption of extremely high axial forces, e.g. initiated by foreign bodies. · Innovative, reliable bearing seal against dirt and water during cleaning for longer service life and complete operational reliability.

Individual bearings or, if necessary, the entire SAFETYLINK unit can be changed quickly.

P-CUT. Work like a professional ­ it's not a question of working width, but of expectation.

Wear skids for operation on sandy or stony ground or in the case of area output to protect the cutterbar skids (available as an option).

12

P for premium housing.

The heavy-duty gear housing is another guarantee for high-quality, life-long CLAAS technology. Maximum cutterbar flexural strength and sturdiness through: · Bar tray made of high-strength, fine-grained structural steel. · Extra-strong cover plate. · Small service openings. · Large depth of the cutterbar. CLAAS features like these make sure that your harvest chain doesn't come to a standstill.

· Scrapers which are positioned lower than the leaf springs and reach as far as the bearing flange protect the leaf springs along their entire length. · Extra-depth mowing bar for added protection of the bar and cutting discs.

P for permanent wear resistance.

· Robust cutterbar skids underneath. · Extra-hard Hardox inserts welded in at the front between the skids. · The service life of the leading edge of the hardened leaf springs is extended even further through the additional hard coating of tungsten carbide.

P-CUT Bar technology

13

Smart power transfer.

· Direct input drive via a maintenance-free universal joint located in the feed drum. · The universal joint effectively cancels torsional forces and vibrations. · No additional drive mechanism with input openings. · No storage area surfaces on which cuttings can collect.

Active feed drums.

· Extra fast-conveying, cylindrical mowing drums for a constant forage flow and a cleanly delineated swath in all operating conditions. · Screw-on wear parts on the conveyor slats for easy, quick and cost-effective replacement.

Fast-conveying mowing drums on the right and left quickly remove the crop to the rear, thus blades can always rotate freely to produce a clean cut.

14

P-CUT. External values count as well.

P for progressive following for all applications.

Every region and every type of terrain makes its own special demands on the equipment supplied by technology. · Adaptation to local circumstances through the use of additional equipment: ­ Wear skids on sandy or stony ground or in the case of high area output to protect the cutterbar skids. ­ Increase in cutting height of 30 mm using high-cut skids, for example for field crops.

P-CUT Drive Bar protection

15

P-CUT. Blade change at the double.

P for practical ­ Quick blade change as standard.

With the quick blade change, CLAAS provides an effective combination of sophisticated technology and convenient handling. · Easy blade change: the fixing lever is placed around the blade bolt, the leaf spring pushed downward and the old blade swapped for a new one.

Well organised.

· Rainproof blade box mounted where it is easy to access, with two separate compartments for right and left-hand side blades. · The part numbers of the blades are also displayed on the lid of the blade box.

16

Safety first.

· The hardened steel blade bolt is welded firmly to the leaf spring. · The leaf spring pushes the blade bolt from below firmly into the disc. · The blades rotate freely around the bolt without any impact. This prevents damage to the blades. · 7 mm overlap and the mushroom-shaped blade bolt protect the blade, even in the toughest operating conditions. · The blade can only be changed if the blade attachment is directly above the cavity. This prevents the blade from coming free by mistake.

Original CLAAS cutting blades.

· Cutting blades made of high-grade spring steel. · Ground blades. · Clean cut to encourage rapid growth.

All mowers are fitted with a quick blade changing system as standard. Depending on the model and the country, screw-in blades are optionally available. Whether the blade is attached using the quick blade change system or is bolted, the blade is always fastened securely.

Only the best.

Regardless of which mower you opt for, the conditioning system, which has proved itself time and again in largescale operations, is featured on all CLAAS mowers. CLAAS refuses to compromise on conditioning quality or on service life.

Whatever the weather.

Like everything from CLAAS, the conditioners on the DISCO mower are robust, reliable and powerful. They help you to work even more efficiently and exploit the available harvesting window to the full. Now you can outsmart the weather.

Tried-and-tested technology.

Dry matter with conditioner

· Stable and robust power transfer. · V-shaped offset tines, comprising two single elements and made of hardened spring steel for years of efficient operation. · You can match the conditioning intensity to the harvest conditions by adjusting the baffle plate, without the need of tools. · The swathing plates are adjustable for the right swath width.

without conditioner Time

The steel tines are flexibly mounted, which allows them to simply give way if they hit stones, thereby avoiding damage.

18

DISCO with conditioner ­ for faster drying and wilting.

Efficient operation.

· Loose swath accelerates the drying and wilting process considerably. · Time saved through fewer working operations.

Precision adjustment.

The level of conditioning can be set from aggressive to gentle by altering the intake, as well as the ability to turn the asymmetric steel tines

Securely mounted.

· The conditioner rotor is mounted on highly stable block bearings. · The bearings are fitted outside the crop flow so they are well protected from dirt and harmful crop fluids. · Easy removal and replacement of the rotor for maintenance purposes.

21

Robust and cost effective, with or without conditioner.

The DISCO 2650, 3050 and 3450 mowers are ideal for efficient forage harvesting with rear linkage mounting. These disc mowers, designed as rear-mounted mowers ­ DISCO 2650 C and 3050 C versions also equipped with a conditioner ­ give good manoeuvrability despite their large working width.

Accident protection.

If an obstruction is hit, the overload device is activated. Just back up to reset, then work can be resumed immediately. · Robust securing system featuring a rubber spring and a sturdy locking device. · Effective protection of the machine against significant damage. The rubber spring cannot jam. · Simple adjustment after activation of the safety device.

Adjustable fixing bolts.

· Quick adjustment to tractor width. · Full use of the working width. · Easy matching of front and rear mowing combinations.

Maintenance is not an issue.

Drive shaft service intervals for all rear-mounted mowers ­ 250 hours for universal joints and ­ 100 hours for sliding tubes.

Superior single lever mechanism.

· The ground pressure is always constant and the cut is clean thanks to parallel horizontal lifting on headlands. · Lifting at the headland and swinging into transport position without using the three-point linkage or changing the basic setting.

22

DISCO 2650/3050/3450 DISCO 2650 C/3050 C

Rear-mounted power houses.

Spring-loaded swath disc for dead straight swaths.

· The mowed swath is cleanly separated from the standing crop. · No risk of blockages. · Very large disc diameter and rubber coating for 100% trouble-free operation. · The swath disc moves to the side in tight curves and stops the crop from building up. · DISCO 2650, 3050 and 3450 with external swath disc as standard. An internal swath disc is available as an option for the DISCO 2650 and a swathing plate for the DISCO 3050.

Set-up couldn't be easier.

Belt tension is checked against a visible mark. If tensioning is necessary, an easy-to-use crank handle is turned without the use of tools.

Both the front and rear protective covers are fully hinged. This makes blade changing or cleaning the mower easier. The mower's compact dimensions means it saves an amazing amount of space when stored for winter.

23

The DISCO rear mower with side suspension ­ Effortlessly follows the field surface.

Even ground pressure.

· The mower is suspended by two strong flat coil springs, or by three springs on conditioning machines. · The ground pressure is distributed evenly thanks to springs arranged along the entire length of the cutterbar. · Adjustment to cope with ground and harvest conditions, without the use of tools. · The mower accurately follows ground contours thanks to the two pivot points. · Even and clean cut and gentle treatment of the sward.

Two mounting points are better than one.

· Dual mounting of the cutterbar to the sturdy carrier frame on all DISCO. · Highly stable and excellent guidance of the bars, both in working and transport positions.

The tension of the suspension spring can be adjusted in a matter of seconds, without the use of tools. The inner and outer sides of the cutterbar can therefore be adjusted separately.

24

Clever kinematics.

· Working on steep slopes is no problem. · Flexible belt drive replaces drive shafts for problem-free working in any position.

Road safety.

· The centre of gravity is close to the tractor ensuring improved weight distribution and greater stability when travelling. · The bar tilts slightly towards the centre of the tractor, thereby reducing the travel width. · The pivot point is situated well inside the track width so the mower is only slightly wider than the tractor on the road. · The mower unit is automatically locked when swung up for road travel.

Ground pressure Kinematics

25

Gentle conditioning.

Leafy crops such as alfalfa need to be treated differently from grass. The DISCO 2650 RC with roller conditioner from CLAAS is gentle alternative to the tried-and-tested DISCO 2650 C with tine conditioner.

Harvesting of green forage/whole crops made easy.

· Conditioner with two helix-shaped, meshed rubbercoated rollers. · The hard stalks of the leafy-rich varieties are squashed while the tender, nutritious leaves are treated gently.

The weatherproof blade box, fixing lever and cutting blades are always at hand.

26

DISCO 2650 RC

Gently does it.

V-shaped roller facing.

· Simple power flow to the conditioner: the large width of the roller makes it possible to just drive the lower roller, while the spring-suspended upper roller turns at the same speed and protects against foreign objects. · The tension and the spacing between the rollers can be adapted to the harvesting conditions. · Perfect crop flow thanks to the optimum position of the rollers close to the cutterbar.

Swathing plates which can be adjusted simply and without tools for a neatly formed and well delineated swath.

Grass isn't just grass.

No crop is consistent. Wet patches or dry raised areas ­ it is now possible to react to these quickly and simply using the hydropneumatic cutterbar suspension provided by ACTIVE FLOAT. You can regulate the mower's suspension at any time from the driver's seat, even while travelling. The currently selected ground pressure can be read from the cab's pressure gauge. Set the value you want. The principle: as much suspension as possible with as little loading as necessary. The result: · Effortless adaptation to ground contours providing forage quality · Less crop contamination, highest quality forage. · Mechanical wear is kept to an absolute minimum. · Reduced power requirement and fuel consumption. · Noticeable mowing convenience thanks to minimalisation of side traction forces, especially on slopes: high driving stability; no crop contamination through the mower being pulled sideways or sward damage caused by countersteering.

32

ACTIVE FLOAT ­ Handle your sward with great care.

"The stubble remains intact and there is no crop contamination."

Johann Steltzl, Steinach, Lower Bavaria, Germany

"The hydropneumatic suspension, which can be adjusted while driving, also has a positive effect when it comes to mowing particularly damp spots. I was able to adjust the bearing pressure immediately and neatly pass these spots."

Christoph Wißling, Ahlen, Westphalia, Germany

DISCO CONTOUR ACTIVE FLOAT

33

ACTIVE FLOAT ­ A licence to float.

Two-fold strategy.

· Adjust the balancing pressure to the changing ground conditions quickly, easily and continuously via the single acting tractor hydraulic connection. You can do this at any time without descending from the cab, even during mowing. · If conditions are constant, set the balancing pressure once before you start and you can begin mowing straight away. The tap of the single-acting hydraulic hose can be closed and the hose stored in the holder on the mower. The pressure is maintained. You can also operate the DISCO CONTOUR with only one double-acting control valve. As an additional application, the ACTIVE FLOAT can also be set for an edge mowing function by fully suspending the cutterbar. The mower "flies" over the uneven ground at the edges.

Tested and confirmed by the DLG (German Agricultural Association).

"As confirmed by measurements, the bearing pressure can be adjusted almost linearly. Thus [...] mowing is gentle on the stubble and the crop is hardly contaminated." "The hydropneumatic suspension [can] reduce the need for tractive power by increasing the pressure." "Appropriate adjustment of the balancing pressure modifies and reduces the mower's side traction on the tractor ­ and potentially decreases [...] the problem of drifting down slopes." "This does not affect the overall supporting force and thus provides no additional relief to the front axle (steerability)."

The special feature: by pulling a flap, the cylinder becomes inactive, so the adjusted bearing pressure remains stable if the machine is switched off.

DLG-tested (German Agricultural Society): Work quality ­ excellent Ground pressure ­ excellent.

Smart transport technology.

The DISCOs from CONTOUR range feature a detailed and sophisticated folding and transport technology. · A powerful, special dual-function cylinder allows the mower to be tilted upwards centrally by around 115°. · More or less balanced loading of both rear wheels for optimum stability while driving. · Excellent weight ratios of front and rear axles guarantee optimum stability during transport. · Because the centre of gravity is close to the tractor, the mower does not vibrate, does not swing backwards and is able to cope effortlessly with the tightest of turning circles. · The special folding design means the driver has excellent all-round visibility and ensures that any following vehicle has a clear view of the tractor's lights. · Reduced travel height means that low clearance heights are no problem. · The angular transport position means that branches protruding into the street are no obstruction to travelling.

· The minimum excess width of the mower allows for clear and easy transportation. · Hydraulic folding protective cloth available as an option for DISCO 3900 CONTOUR.

Secure transport position.

In transport position, the mower rests with its transport claw securely on its mount. Even if there is no pressure in the hydraulics, the mower is secured by a mechanical transport security lock. Extremely quiet and vibration-free transport conditions mean you can travel long distances and work long hours in comfort.

36

DISCO CONTOUR

Safely on the road.

"...it's superb on the road. With some mounted mowers, those that fold back overhang too much, but the CONTOUR stays close to the tractor and the over-centre folding keeps the mower right in line between the tractor's mirrors. Having the weight carried centrally over the back axle means the tractor stays well balanced, and the overall length is kept to a minimum, making it easy to get through gates."

Ian and Andrew Smith, Kilmaurs, Scotland

The greatest machine on the market.

With its 3.40 m working width, the new DISCO 3500 C CONTOUR mowers sets new standards. Its conditioner, which spans the entire working width, provides an impressive performance level and working quality.

Well conditioned ­ as always.

Save time. The DISCO 2700 C, 3100 C and the new 3500 C CONTOUR mowers with a conditioner lay the swath loosely onto the stubble, thereby significantly accelerating the drying process. They require fewer working operations in order to be able to harvest the crop at an optimum level of wilting. As integral part of all three mowers is the familiar and successful conditioner found in all DISCO mowers featuring asymmetrically formed, rubber-mounted spring steel tines, conditioner chicane which can be adjusted without tools and thoroughly robust block bearings for the rotor.

Careful conditioning.

Leafy crops require particular care during the harvest. Gentle conditioning to protect the soft, nutritious leaves while sufficiently crushing the stalks place high demands on both mower and farmer. These demands are met by the new DISCO 3100 RC CONTOUR with 3 m working width. It expands the CLAAS product range by a centrally suspended disc mower with roller conditioner.

Interlinked like a helix.

· Conditioner with rubber-coated roller with V-profile for crushing the hard stalks whilst protecting the delicate, nutritious leaves. · Simple drive technology: only the bottom roller is driven by 3 belts. Due to the large roller width, the top roller, which is protected from foreign bodies by a spring, synchronically moves along without a separate drive. · Clearance between the rollers, and hence conditioning intensity, can be adjusted to the particular harvest conditions. · Perfect crop flow thanks to the optimum position of the rollers close to the cutterbar. · Adjustable swathing plates for a neatly formed and well delineated swath.

As with all CONTOUR mowers, the ACTIVE FLOAT hydropneumatic mower suspension ensures optimum bearing pressure and is also on the DISCO 3100 RC CONTOUR.
