CLAAS Celebrates Fifty Years of the JAGUAR Self-Propelled Forage Harvester

In celebration of 50 years of its iconic JAGUAR forage harvester, CLAAS of America has introduced special equipment packages on various models.

While all 2024 JAGUAR forage harvesters are considered “anniversary editions,” all models ordered with the Operator Comfort Package (a $874 option) will receive a special 50th Anniversary graphics and accessory package at no additional cost. Select PREMIUM LINE and MAXI CARE packages are also available.

The JAGUAR line paved the way for an unprecedented success story in the self-propelled forage harvester segment when it launched 50 years ago in Germany and has been a leader in the category ever since. Featuring many innovations over the years, the JAGUAR attained not only a worldwide reputation but also world market leadership. Today, the JAGUAR remains the top choice for farmers and contractors around the world with more than 45,000 units manufactured thanks to its outstanding kernel processing technology, efficient drive systems, straight crop flow and high reliability.

"For 50 years, the JAGUAR has stood for innovation, efficiency, productivity and reliability and is surely second to none in terms of the mark it has made on the forage harvester segment throughout five decades", said Dominik Grothe, senior vice president, self-propelled harvesters. "However, CLAAS does not just owe its position as world market leader to technological advances and superior customer service, but also to the developers and the feedback from our customers.” 

The introduction of the all-new JAGUAR 800 model series in 1994 marked a major development that took CLAAS into a new dimension of performance and underlined its claim to technological leadership. Today, the flagship model JAGUAR 990 is available with a TERRA TRAC undercarriage and delivers up to 925 hp. CLAAS exclusive features such as the CAM PILOT for automatic steering during pick-up work to reduce operator fatigue and simplify the lives of countless operators.
