The 3800 won us over straight away...
Agrarwirtschaft Schwanebeck GmbH, Germany.
Karl-Heinz Klietz, Managing director,
"The XERION is much more versatile than a tractor with centre-pivot steering, so we can also use it for other types of work."
Previously, Agrarwirtschaft Schwanebeck GmbH used a tractor with centre-pivot steering for heavy cultivation work. Managing directors Karl-Heinz Klietz and Christian Klietz Jr. tell us why the tractor with centre-pivot steering was replaced with a XERION 3800.
"The XERION had better traction power and used less fuel."
On the eastern edge of the Magdeburger Börde, Agrarwirtschaft Schwanebeck GmbH farms around 2,000 hectares of arable land and maintains a dairy herd of 200 cows. In addition, a second, 600 hectare arable farm around 70 km away is farmed from here. An 8m-wide giant Smaragd cultivator, a Vario cultivator with a 4.7 m working width, and an 11 furrow reversible plough are available for the various cultivation activities. Up to the end of 2007, these machines were pulled by a 350 HP tractor with centre-pivot steering.
In comparison with the previous tractor, the XERION uses one or even two litres less fuel per hectare.
"Another point is that the tractor with centre-pivot steering is really only suitable for tillage. The XERION is much more versatile, and can also be used for transportation purposes" says Karl-Heinz Klietz, thereby pointing out another important decisive factor. He also sees crab steering as another advantage of the XERION, since it permits a relatively wide tyre contact area without using dual wheels.
