Claas Cougar: new features

Taking the proven performance and efficiency of the Cougar, Claas has added roller conditioners to the lineup with the Cougar 1400RC, giving producers the ability to choose the right mower for their field conditions.

Leading the industry with the Cougar 1400C (tine rollers), the Cougar 1400RC (roller conditioner) has all the features one looks for in a mower to benefit their operation — a mower that increases capacity, boosts fuel savings and reduces labor inputs.

“Continuously improving features of the Cougar to gain efficiencies is at the forefront of all we do, and our engineering team consistently raises the bar by listening to our growers,” explains Matt Jaynes, product specialist.

“We've enhanced features on the Cougar 1400RC to improve drying time, mow more acres per day and increase consistency in the feed quality,” he concluded.

The Cougar 1400RC is equipped with a front mower conditioner, laying a wide, loose and fluffy swath for quick drying — making perfect 24-hour silage. This feature is especially important for operators working against the clock in a short harvesting window. Each of the five independent Disco mowers is equipped with chevron roller conditioners and the award-winning Quick Knife system for easy knife changing to reduce maintenance time.

Another new feature for the Cougar 1400RC is the pivoting multi-function control lever. Integrated directly into the armrest of the operator seat, all controls are within reach and ultimate control is at your fingertips giving access to numerous different functions. The pivoting lever simply needs to be extended or retracted to move the Cougar.

Minimizing drying time enabling you to mow and chop in a day is one of the greatest advantages of the Cougar. That, and its ability to mow and condition in 45 foot swaths, permitting growers to switch a fleet of conventional mowers to one self-propelled Cougar, completing the work in less time, reducing inputs and saving fuel.

In fact, the Cougar is the industry-leading self-propelled mower with the largest capacity and most mowed acres per gallon — saving growers time and money.
