Row-independent harvesting.

Up to 9 m working width.

The ORBIS row-independent maize front attachment from CLAAS with working widths from 4.5 m to 9.0 m combines completely new design and drive ideas with the experience we have gained around the globe. Its outstanding features and excellent reliability ensure success during the maize harvest.

A central locking system ensures that the ORBIS is securely connected to the JAGUAR. Power is transmitted smoothly via a quick coupler.

The ORBIS 600 SD is offered parallel to the ORBIS 600.

The SD is particularly suited to normal and low-growing crops. The outer sections with the small discs and the additional vertical feed drums enable an extremely free-flowing crop flow. The ORBIS 600 with the large discs comes into its own in normal and very high yield maize stands.

NEW: ORBIS 750 / 600 SD.

Front attachments

Outstanding reliability.

Front attachments from CLAAS are used to harvest an extremely diverse array of crops around the world. The CLAAS name stands for performance, wear-resistance, reliability and work quality. Drawing on our worldwide practical experience, we have completely revised the new generation of our proven ORBIS maize front attachments with improvements ranging from the optimised crop flow to the innovative folding mechanism.

ORBIS 750 and ORBIS 600 SD: outstanding reliability in all harvesting conditions.

  • Efficient drive concept for all chop lengths
  • Unique crop flow for optimal chopping quality
  • Optimal ground-contour tracking with AUTO CONTOUR
  • Very low stubble height across the entire working width

Energy-saving drive.

The efficient drive concept offers you a huge amount of power for remarkably little fuel. The JAGUAR transmits its power to the maize front attachment mechanically, the energy requirement of the latter being extremely low. This is because the ORBIS requires only a few transmission elements and impressively low starting torque. Thanks to these characteristics, the front attachment can also be switched on and reversed at full load. The transmission and drive components are designed for high throughput. Perfect matching of the drive speed to the set chop length ensures an optimal crop feed into the JAGUAR.

Efficient drive concept.

  1. Input gearbox with two speed settings and quick coupling connection to forage harvester
  2. Main gearbox with three speed ranges for the feed drums
  3. Drive, large transport discs with knives
  4. Drive, feed cones
  5. Drive, small transport discs with knives
  6. Optional hydraulically driven laid maize augers

Unique crop flow.

The combination of small and large intake discs makes for high versatility with outstanding throughput. The ORBIS transports all the plants gently and reliably for optimal delivery to the JAGUAR intake. If the machine is reversed, the plants which have already been cut remain on the large discs and are then drawn in.

Versatility to the fore.

Maize yields of well over 70 t/ha, biogas, SHREDLAGE®, low-growing maize or other crops, such as whole crop silage or sorghum – ORBIS copes with every task. The three-tier structure of its transport discs ensures an even crop flow.

  • The synchronised rotation of the cutting and intake discs enables a gentle crop transfer
  • Sturdy tubular bars reliably prevent cob losses
  • The geometry of the knives ensures a perfect cut

Crop flow.

  1. Straight cutting of plants makes for uniform stubble height
  2. Guide fingers can be adjusted for differing harvest conditions
  3. Gentle, high-throughput crop transport
  4. Very even crop transfer for consistently high chopping quality
Front attachments

Optimal ground-contour following.

The characteristics of the terrain cease to matter when harvesting maize with the ORBIS. Precise ground-contour following is ensured by the redesigned tilting frame in combination with the enhanced CONTOUR / AUTO CONTOUR control system. With the skids in full contact with the ground, the AUTO CONTOUR control system automatically switches over to float position. In this way, excellent lateral compensation is ensured along with ground pressure control.

Front attachments

Low stubble height.

With the special design of its underside and its ability to adjust its tilt to maintain a parallel attitude to the ground, the ORBIS ensures short and even stubble across the entire working width. The ideal stubble which results is short, consistent, clean and shredded at the end for fast rotting.

Innovative folding concept.

An all-new development, the symmetrical folding process allows you to deploy the complete maize front attachment from its transport width to its full working width in just 15 seconds. At the same time, the integrated transport chassis is automatically moved into the appropriate position.

Ready for use in 15 seconds.

Once in working position, the ORBIS 750 and the ORBIS 600 SD impress with their excellent, unrestricted visibility and low axle loads. Their extremely short structure makes manoeuvring easy, including tight turns.

  • Transport width: 3.00 m
  • Working widths of 7,60 m and 6.10 m respectively

Integrated transport chassis.

For on-road travel, the ORBIS is folded to a width of 3 metres. The integrated transport system ensures compliance with road traffic licensing regulations and the actively controlled chassis enables ideal weight distribution for the whole vehicle. This makes for extremely comfortable driving at up to 40 km/h, thereby keeping transfer times between fields as short as possible.

As with all front attachments from CLAAS, on-road travel with the ORBIS is characterised by maximum safety and convenience. The compact, folded ORBIS provides the operator with an excellent view during on-road travel.

Easy maintenance.

Harvesting usually involves working within very narrow timeframes. Having to perform extensive maintenance work is a nuisance and also a cost factor, since it reduces productivity. This is why the CLAAS engineers have done all they can to keep maintenance requirements to a minimum. The key assemblies can be accessed quickly and easily while service intervals are reassuringly long.

Long service intervals.

  • All grease nipple points have a service interval of 250 operating hours
  • All lubrication points are easily accessible for you
  • A transmission oil change is required after the first year and then every 2,500 operating hours
  • All wear parts can be replaced by you quickly and easily
  • Easy access to transmission and clutches through maintenance panels

Outstanding protection against wear.

For extremely demanding operations over very long periods or when working in fields with a high sand content, you can specify the ORBIS maize front attachment equipped with highly wear-resistant parts ex factory. Crop flow parts subject to wear, such as guide strips, knives and additional skids are optionally available in wear-resistant PREMIUM LINE quality.

Ready for long-term harvesting.

  • PREMIUM LINE feed drums with special wear coating
  • Additional PREMIUM LINE wear elements to protect the large cutting discs and knives
  • The knives have a tungsten carbide coating to increase their service life
