Claas Xerion 3800 Trac & Miedema CP 42P planting potatoes.

Few tractors produce such a sweet sound as the Caterpillar C9 unit in the Claas Xerion 3800, delivering 379 HP max. Of course this is helped by the massive exhaust stack up front! Here we see a Claas Xerion 3800 Trac planting potatoes using a Miedema CP 42P planter. This 3m machine plants four 75 cm beds. The heavy clay soil is first tilled using an AVR hook tine cultivator, followed by the planter and ridging bodies. The tractor is fitted with brand new Bridgestone VF 900 tyres that run at 0,4 bar (5,8 PSI). The planter tyres run on 0,8 bar. Because the tractor has such a large footprint they can get away using this big tractor. On this heavy soil it”s abundance of horsepower is certainly appreciated.
