Get the ballasting right for optimum efficiency.

Fuel-efficient ballasting.

Tractors all too often carry too much weight. But over-ballasting does not boost tractive performance – it simply increases fuel consumption. With the XERION it's easy to adjust the ballasting precisely to suit the task. The 400 kg ballast plates can be quickly changed and secured with quick-release fasteners.

Three ballasting tips.

  1. As much as necessary, as little as possible.
  2. In the field, the need for ballasting decreases as the ground speed increases
  3. During field work, tyre slip should average more than 6%, otherwise the tractor is carrying too much ballast

Front ballast.

You can add 3,400 kg of ballast to the front of the XERION. The base weight weighs 1,800 kg and can take up to four additional 400 kg plates. It is available in two versions: one that can be attached to the front linkage and one that is fixed permanently in place.

Rear ballast.

The rear of the XERION can also be ballasted with 3,400 kg. A 200 kg fixed base plate can accommodate eight additional plates each weighing 400 kg. These can be quickly added or removed with a telehandler, wheel or front loader.


Ballasting.

The right weight for every application.

Add up to 3,400 kg of ballast at the front and the rear

- Weights are easy to add and remove

- All plates are held securely in place with a quick-release mechanism

- Get the ballast right and save fuel

Max. ground speed under full loadMax. permitted vehicle weight (incl. drawbar load of attachment in t)
8 km/h24 t
10 km/h22.5 t
12 km/h18.5 t

It's a good idea to estimate in advance the speed at which you plan to work with the attached implement. For example, if you ballast for a speed of 8 km/h and then work at 12 km/h, you're carrying almost 6 t of excess ballast. This has a noticeable effect on fuel consumption.
