Efficient but Considerate Slurry Spreading
More slurry - less hassle
The SDS spreader is continuously operating in the fields, whilst the slurry is being pumped directly from the storage tank to the distributor. The average capacity is approx. 150-200 tonnes per hour or the equivalent of 5-6 hectares.
Using the SDS 7000 / 8000 also removes smell issues from the roads. With an DP/APV pump unit the slurry is pumped directly to the spreader via pipes and hoses, eliminating the need for transportation with tankers on public roads.

- Michelin Mega Xbib tyres
Tyre Pressure Regulation
As an option the SDS 8000 can be fitted with tyre pressure regulation. This enables you to reduce or increase the tyre pressure from the cabin. Reducing the tyre pressure makes it easier to operate on muddy fields, because the tyre shape will be more oblonged, giving you a better ”road grip”.
It also helps to reduce the soil pressure per cm2.
Lower costs on fuel, tires and manpower
Because the slurry is being pumped to the field instead of transported on the roads, fuel and tire costs are significantly lowered in comparison to conventional slurrys spreading with tankers.
The entire setup is managed by just one person, as the pump unit is operated via remote control from the SDS cabin.
In addition, an automatic safety device monitors the complete system, and immediately terminates operation in case of failure.
Cabin With Joystick Control
The SDS 8000 has got Claas’ latest cabin with joystick control, which makes the job easier. At the same time is has got maximum comfort, so the driver will have a pleasant work day
