Award: iF design award winner 2015
The technical design of the CARGOS 8000 multi purpose wagon was a development from scratch. The design based on the premise of a high variability of the equipment, a strongly decreased vehicle weight and an uncompromising product design. Thanks to the simultaneous approach of construction and design, every technical solution was watched from the designer´s point of view while keeping track of the costs.
The modular structure and the holistic view made it commercially reasonable to partially use formed covers. This has also decreased the overall weight increasing the maximum loading capacity. “No redundant metal sheets, clean joints and consistent design.” The design effectively rounds out the new CLAAS product line.
