Mighty RC model for the heaviest tasks. Even as a series model, the Claas Xerion 5000 TRAC VC already presents an imposing appearance. The “100 Jahre Sieper” (100 years of Sieper) anniversary model, in matt black paintwork and with double tyres, creates an even bigger impression. The unique model is a limited edition.
Working lights on, work unit attached, and then it’s off to work in the fields. Using the SikuControl App the six gears, 22 LEDs, and numerous tractor functions can be controlled from your Smartphone or tablet. The functions can be controlled either via the virtual gamepad controller or via the movement sensors of the mobile devices. This intuitive feature provides even more playing fun. As on the original, the complete cab rotates at the push of a button. Above all, when mulching and for silo work, this allows a good view to the rear.
The controller recognises the changed direction of travel, and adapts the steering commands. And then there’s the option, like the prototype, of driving and steering the model via the rear axle, using all-wheel steering, or so-called crab steering. Here the front and rear wheels are turned in the same direction. This allows the rear wheels to be offset from the front wheels, even when steering in a straight line. This reduces rut formation and decreases the risk of tipping over. If the ground is soft, the twin tyre sets also reduce the pressure on the ground. The tyres are connected using magnets which are integrated into the rims and connect the tyres firmly. This means that the tyres can be fitted and removed very quickly and without tools.
The SikuControl App is available for download free of charge in the App Store and the Google Play Store. The settings and functions of the app are continuously updated. Using the app’s OTA (over the air) function, the tractor’s software can also be updated directly.
