Spreading for shorter drying times.

The CLAAS name stands for professional equipment, from the smallest VOLTO model to the largest. Equipped with the MAX SPREAD tine arms, all CLAAS tedders deliver superior crop spreading, minimal ash inclusion, and industry best durability for any sized operation.

Durable productivity.

The VOLTO 55 TH is an ideal no-frills, four-rotor machine for operations needing a high-performing tedder on smaller acreages. With a 17′ 1″ (5.2 m) working width, this model offers quality and durability equal to that of larger machines in a compact package. MAX SPREAD rotors with equal length tines driven via the PERMALINK finger clutches spread crops wide for quick drying.

Hydraulic folding.

One single-acting spool valve performs multiple machine functions. The left and right rotors are lifted into transport position via this spool valve and held in place with mechanical latches for security while moving between fields. A rope disengages the locks before the cylinders gently lower the rotors into working position.

Headland lift.

Headland lift is integrated into the folding hydraulic circuit, allowing the rotors and tines to tilt out of the crop while turning on headlands. The mechanical transport latches also serve as position limiters for the outside rotors when lifting at the headland. This means the crop is not disturbed again, potentially retaining more nutritional value.

Height adjustment.

Tine height in the oncoming crop depends on a consistent stubble height. Since not all crops are mowed the same way, the ability to adjust tine height is standard via a turnbuckle with handle. This makes the VOLTO 55 TH all-crop capable, unlike many competitive machines.
