Jaguar Record
seen on the claas website, shown a while ago

Top performance has a fascination of its own. New records
are constantly being set worldwide, in the pursuit of
"higher-faster-further". Not only people but in many cases
machines are the focus of such endeavours, convincingly
proving how powerful, untiring and rugged they are.
That was a dream nurtured by Bob Armstrong, a CLAAS of
America employee, who wanted to show customers, prospects
and naturally also sceptics just what CLAAS machines can do.
His aim was to set a new world record.
The target was for the JAGUAR 900 with a 380 HD pick-up to
chop 2,000 tonnes of low-moisture silage in 12 hours.
He found an ally in Frank Netto, a Californian contractor
from San Joaquin Valley. Netto supplied the JAGUAR forage
harvester and all the transport logistics for this record
attempt

attempt.
The date chosen for the big event was 26th April 2001. At 7
a.m. prompt, the team set to work. It wasn't just a matter
of chopping; it was also twelve hours of mowing and
swathing. A challenge which was - naturally - also handled
by top CLAAS technology, in the form of an efficient
harvesting line-up: a JAGUAR 860 with a DISCO 8500C mower
unit and the LINER 3000, ensuring perfect swaths.
thrilling finish.
Three hours before the end of the record attempt, people
began to get slightly jittery. Everything had gone smoothly
so far. With its 605 hp, the JAGUAR made light work of
chopping the heavy silage - running at maximum power, in
continuous operation, in a temperature of 35° Celsius. But
would the volume harvested be enough to secure the record?
On the dot of 7 p.m., the finishing flag signalled time for
the harvest team to call a halt.
Excitement mounted at the weighing station. The three judges
totted up the wagon-loads and signed to confirm the new
world record:
2,058 TONNES in twelve hours!
That's equivalent to over 170 tonnes per hour. That means
the JAGUAR 900 in fact qualifies for a place in the Guinness
Book of Records.
And the whole team is confident it will be some time before
this CLAAS record is broken.
