Agritechnica 2017 – CLAAS announces new SCORPION

CLAAS has enjoyed great success for over the past 20 years with its high-quality agricultural telescopic loaders, which it today sells to farmers and agricultural contractors around the world under the CLAAS SCORPION brand. Two years ago, CLAAS entered into an agreement to cooperate with its partner Liebherr in this business area.

CLAAS will use the Agritechnica to present a completely new SCORPION series developed together with Liebherr, the technology leader in professional materials handling. Manufactured by Liebherr, the new SCORPION is currently being tested in the field and will be available in an extended model range from January 2018.

CLAAS and its sales partners guarantee to continue the familiar reliable service and replacement parts for all CLAAS SCORPION on the market, now and in the future.

Kramer-Werke GmbH has been producing CLAAS agricultural telescopic loaders since 2005, and will do so until the end of 2017, which CLAAS sells under the global CLAAS SCORPION brand. Two years ago, CLAAS and Kramer-Werke agreed to end their partnership in the development and production of agricultural telescopic loaders by the end of the current year.
