TORION 1914-1177

Engine + Drive train.

Another key priority for the design of the CLAAS wheel loader was a seamless interaction between all elements of the drive system technology – to provide maximum power and safety and a long service life.

TORION 1914-1177

Engine + Drive train.

Another key priority for the design of the CLAAS wheel loader was a seamless interaction between all elements of the drive system technology – to provide maximum power and safety and a long service life.

Engine + Drive train.

All the power you need.

Up for the challenge, whatever it may be. The two large models are equipped with powerful Liebherr four-cylinder engines, delivering 168 kW (228 hp) in the TORION 1914 or 143 kW (195 hp) in the TORION 1812, and developing maximum power at an engine speed of just 1,150 rpm.

Clean exhaust.

The medium-sized TORION series is equipped with robust DPS four-cylinder engines, also meeting Stage IV (Tier 4) exhaust emission requirements. Exhaust treatment is carried out by means of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) with integrated diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and SCR technology. Power ratings range from 103 kW (140 hp) to 123 kW (167 hp). Maximum output is available at an engine speed of 2,000 rpm.

Engine installation location in the TORION 1914-1177: Unique location of the engine and associated components for optimum weight distribution.

Smart installation location.

The unique installation location of the engine, well back in the machine, has the effect of moving the centre of gravity rearwards and downwards. This means that the engine can also act as a counterweight, providing a high tipping load with no extra ballast.

Engine output per model


Cooling according to the requirement.

The fan doesn't always have to be running at 100%. Lower fan speeds may well be sufficient in road transport or cruise mode. DYNAMIC COOLING detects the requirements of all the vehicle's cooling units, and uses thermosensors to adjust the fan speed electronically according to the requirement (100–1,050 rpm). This saves energy, and therefore fuel.

Automatic cleaning.

The reversible fan automatically clears particles of dirt and dust from the air intake surfaces. At regular intervals, the fan direction is reversed, and dirt in the area is literally blown away. The time interval for fan reversal is set conveniently on the terminal in the cab.

How you benefit:

  • Simple process for cleaning intake surfaces and the radiator
  • Only minimal radiator soiling
  • Long operating intervals
  • Constant output

Clean air.

The cleaner the engine intake air, the higher the power delivered. If you work mainly in dirt-intensive environments, it is well worth having a pre-cleaner fitted, so that the intake air is pre-cleaned with an air filter cyclone. This significantly lengthens the maintenance interval for the air filter.

TORION 1511 / 1410 / 1177 1914 1812

Less dirt.

Air intake in the TORION happens via sieves located directly behind the driver's cab, where there is little exposure to dust and dirt. This reduces soiling of the fan vanes with straw, blades of grass and silage to a minimum. Large dust and dirt particles never get into the ventilation circuit in the first place. A fine sieve for the radiator provides extra protection against the radiator fins clogging up when the machine is operating in environments with particularly high dirt and dust levels. The combination of these measures significantly boosts cooling performance.

How you benefit:

  • Ample clean air supply
  • Long operating periods, thanks to minimal soiling
  • Reduced cleaning and maintenance outlay

Drive train.

The best of both worlds.

The infinitely variable ZF transmission system in the TORION 1914 / 1812 successfully combines the benefits of hydrostatic and mechanical powertrains. The result is rapid, smooth acceleration in all speed ranges, with no gear changes or breaks in power transmission, and identical traction power in both directions.

CMATIC equals efficiency.

  • Optimal acceleration and performance in load cycle
  • Sensitive, agile driving characteristics
  • Easy operation through user-friendly controls
  • Engine and transmission management for maximum utilisation of available engine output
  • Working at lower engine speeds for minimal fuel consumption

Drivers love CMATIC.

Powerful acceleration, smooth deceleration: The CMATIC engine transmission management system displays its qualities in all conditions, and for all types of work. Manoeuvring loads on the clamp or picking up heavy bulk materials, for example, calls for maximum engine power delivered to the tyres. So in this case, force transmission is largely mechanical, providing outstanding efficiency and low fuel consumption. For transport operations, on the other hand – driving from the clamp to the biogas plant solids delivery point, or between the storage location and the transport vehicle – use of the hydrostatic component, with its smooth, continuous acceleration and self-locking braking action, provides a superbly comfortable ride.

Infinitely variable driving. Ground drive VARIPOWER.

In the medium range of TORION machines, the VARIPOWER intelligent drive system makes the job easier. This infinitely variable hydrostatic drive offers outstanding driving characteristics and sensitive, precise driving at any speed, and the ability to set exactly the amount of thrust force required.

The engine and transmission management system provides optimum fuel efficiency and driving comfort, with no gear shifts, from 0 through to 40 km/h. Rapid acceleration is achieved in all speed ranges, with no noticeable breaks in propulsion. Speed and thrust force are automatically balanced and coordinated at all times.

TORION 1511 / 1410 / 1177 1914 1812

Intelligent and economical.

At the heart of the VARIPOWER ground drive system is a variable displacement swash plate pump and two axial piston engines, in a closed-circuit configuration. At speeds of up to 16 km/h, both engines are in operation, delivering maximum thrust power for loading operations. At ground speeds of more than 16 km/h, the second engine is disconnected, for road travel with reduced fuel consumption. Reversal of the flow direction of the variable displacement pump provides identical driving performance in both directions (forward and reverse).

Service brake with inching function.

A light touch on the brake/inching pedal causes a continuous progressive reduction in ground speed. Meanwhile, the engine speed remains the same. Fully depressing the brake pedal automatically reduces the ground speed down to close to zero, and activates the service brake (hydraulic pumped storage brake system with wet disc brakes). As well as reducing fuel consumption and brake wear, this technology allows precisely controlled driving at any engine speed.

Parking brake at the push of a button.

The parking brake for the TORION is an electrohydraulically activated spring brake:

  • TORION 1914 / 1812: On the transmission
  • TORION 1511-1177: On the front axle

This provides reliable parking brake functionality, activated and deactivated manually by the driver with the push of a button. The button is within easy reach on the operating panel, providing a simple and reliable control mechanism.

Articulated joint with 40° articulating angle.

In the articulated joint between the forward and rear vehicle sections, there are two double-acting steering rams, allowing a turning angle of 40° on both sides. The resulting small turning radius makes the TORION agile and manoeuvrable even in tight spaces. The robust, long-life joint structure is designed for tough operating conditions, and maintenance is simplicity itself.
