VARIANT 500

Smart compaction: SMART DENSITY

The new SMART DENSITY density management system controls the two tensioning arms independently of one another. As a result, the VARIANT always has optimum belt tensioning, no matter what crop you're baling. So your bales are always perfectly formed: with a soft core for hay, or a solid outer shell for straw and silage.

Easy and convenient.

Convenient net wrapping.

The new VARIANT has everything you need to make light work of net wrapping. Thanks to the low height, it's easy to load the roll and you can keep sight of it at all times. The new braking system works independently of the size of roll. The new net system releases the net knife electronically.

High forage quality.

When endurance matters: ROTO CUT Heavy Duty.

The Heavy Duty drive concept in the VARIANT 585 and 565 makes these machines ideal for tough working conditions in silage. This is because of the 8-mm-thick, four-star dual tines, the ultra-robust individual knife guard and knife bracket. Cutting quality therefore remains excellent even in silage.

Draw on full power.

PRO – the intelligent cutting floor.

A VARIANT equipped with the hydropneumatic PRO cutting floor not only removes blockages, it can also help avoid them in the first place. Capacity utilisation is displayed to the driver, depending on loads, so that they can select the optimum speed to prevent blockages occurring.


VARIANT 580/560 585/565

Comfortable baling.

Large tyres.

On dry or damp soils, field tracks or roads, the new VARIANT has the right tyres for all your requirements – ranging from 380/55-17, 480/45-17, 500/50-17 F+ and 500/45-22.5 up to 560/45-22.5 for machines with brakes.


VARIANT 580/560 585/565

Perfect bale start, every time.

A true core competency: 
The rotor starts the baling process.

Only from CLAAS: the belts and the chopping rotor turn in opposite directions, allowing the immediate start of the baling process necessary to produce a compact core. The high-speed rotor reaches directly into the bale, forcing the process to start – for each and every bale, and in all conditions.
