XERION SADDLE TRAC Construction
Since the introduction of the CLAAS XERION in 1993, KAWECO has been its slurry technology partner. The first XERIONs were introduced with a KAWECO construction with front unit and these were successfully used a self-propelled slurry injectors. After the introduction of the XERION 330, KAWECO has been focusing on the manufacture of swan neck tankers for the XERION TRAC VC. Both in the Netherlands and in Germany, the swan neck tanker is renowned in slurry technology.
Since the introduction of the swan neck DOUBLE TWIN SHIFT the production has more than doubled. To make the XERION package complete, KAWECO developed its own front-unit construction for the XERION 4000 SADDLE TRAC. To save weight, the tanker is made entirely out of epoxy resin. This construction method will decrease the weight by 1,500 kg, which will increase the effective weight. In combination with a 12,000 l/min as a very well thought-out slurry route, KAWECO offers a self-propelled slurry with unparalleled capacity.

Maximum filling capacity
The 16,000-l tanker is equipped with 10” suction pipes and in combination with the Vogelsang VX186-520QD rotary lobe pump (12.000 l/min) is can be filled within 80 seconds.
A few important characteristics:
- Complete suction pipe 10” of the slurry arm up to the rotary lobe pump with a
minimum number of bends, made possible thanks to a smart positioning
of the pump. This also makes allows for the easy removal of the pump for maintenance using a pallet fork.
- The 10” maxi-filler in the slurry arm of the front unit ensures that the slurry is pressed towards the pump. The positive result of this is increased capacity,
a calm running and longer life of the rotary lobe pump tankers to the
lower negative pressure.
Stone trap with cutting chamber
During filling, a stone trap with a capacity of no less than 460 l and an integrated
shredder ensures that stones are caught and that residual matter
like hay and straw are shredded. This allows the slurry to flow through the pump and the distributor(s) effortlessly.
The stone trap can be emptied hydraulically from the tractor cabin.
Maximum spreader capacity and a good view
To the pressing side of the pump the 8” 3-way valve switches between pumping round and spreading. On the headland, the slurry is pumped round automatically meaning that is immediately available for the amount to be spread.
During the spreading of the slurry, the slurry arm to the front unit is placed almost entirely behind a cabin column so that the view is not interrupted. This gives an almost 100% view of the slurry arm during filling. The slurry arm can swivel 135º and has a hinge both on top and at the bottom.
GFK tanker construction
The tanker is made from glass fibre reinforced plastic. This light, yet extremely strong construction allows for a tanker content of 16,000 l. A filling stop makes it possible to fill the tanker up to a predefined level.
The tanker is relatively slender, so that you always have a good rear view. The KAWECO XERION tanker construction is always equipped with 4 LED work lights, and a swivel light.
Perfect interaction between tanker and tractor
The Vogelsang rotary lobe pump is driven by the power hydraulics of the XERION. The KAWECO computer communicates directly with the CEBIS computer of the XERION and thus ensures an accurate and rapidly responding automatic dispersion. Thanks to the stepless hydraulic drive, it is possible to fill the tanker with minimum motor revs. During spreading, the motor revs can be adjusted to the required power. The result is a lower diesel consumption.
With the KAWECO operating system the main functions of the KAWECO-tanker construction (to be determined by the user) can be operated by means of the multifunctional gear lever from the XERION. The other functions are operated via the Müller terminal or the joystick with 24 functions.
