Early this year, Claas announced discontinuation of the Cargos loader wagon production. Onwards, Fliegl acquired the rights to continue production of this robust dual-purpose wagon in a new site in Kirchdorf, Bavaria, Germany.
Objective is to start production of the 8000 series in early 2023, with 30 to 42 m³ load volume, available on tandem and tridem undercarriage. This range will be fully copied from the Claas Cargos. The 9000 series will continue to be built from 2024.
The only difference is the Fliegl livery, without compromising the former Claas look.
Fliegl applies its own light green paint to the Cargos, which is quite similar to the Claas green (which may only be used on their own Claas products). In addition, the sidewalls of the wagon will be painted in nova gray, familiar from the tailgate of Fliegl self-unloading wagons.
The first Fliegl Cargos wagons are expected to be available by March 2023.
