Claas shrinks baby telehandler

Telescopic handler manufacturers keen to widen their market are targeting farmers with ‘traditional' buildings where access and head clearance are often limited and Claas is no exception – its re-designed 3 tonne to 6m model, the Scorpion 6030CP, has been shrunk to attract operators who previously could not get such a machine in their sheds. On standard 20in tyres, the newcomer stands 2.2m to the top of its cab roof; width is down to 2.29m and it's shorter too. A 24in tyre version stands a bit taller but has better traction and ground clearance. It also has more power – 100hp from the 3.6-litre Deutz engine that now sits transversely in the side pod between the right-hand wheels compared with 78hp for the base version. Both models have conventional 30kph hydrostatic drive permanently driving all four wheels but the 24in/100hp machine can also have Varipower, the higher-performance hydro drive. This gives the machine added pushing power for silage clamps and digging into compacted yard manure, and a faster top speed of 40kph. Gear pump 84-litre/min hydraulics are standard but the ‘24in' models can have a 120-litre/min load-sensing system with faster oil delivery at low engine revs.
