Claas Xerions longevity esp VC versions

Hi all,

Am in the initial stages of looking at Claas Cerion VCs (cab can rotate model), both new and 2nd hand. Wondering how the older models have treated people from a service and reliability point of view etc?

Any input appreciated.

Cheers

I have a 5000 (non VC). Going on 3rd season now, about 1100 hours. No issues besides regular maintenance.

Think you would be better asking here https://thefarmingforum.co.uk/index....ums/machinery/ as there have been xerions around in Europe much longer.

What would it take to give up the CVT?
