Mechatronics Specialist for agricultural and construction machinery

"Learning by doing is essential for good repairs" - this could be the motto of a mechatronics specialist for agricultural and construction machinery. This role requires you to have a "hands-on" attitude and work directly on machinery. Whether you are working at a CLAAS dealer or a used machinery centre of CLAAS Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH, you will be servicing and repairing agricultural and construction vehicles, machinery, plant and equipment and preparing those for resale in the workshop.

But that's not all – if customers have a problem with their machines, you are the person they contact and you will travel spontaneously to their premises to provide service directly in the field. After all, it's your job to perform diagnosis of faults and malfunctions, narrow down the possible causes and eliminate the defects. Regardless of whether the problem is of mechanical, hydraulic, electrical or electronic nature – you will rapidly determine what the problem is and repair or replace the corresponding parts.

Did you know?

There are more than 400 CLAAS dealers with workshop operations in Germany.

During your training, you will learn to operate and commission CLAAS machines and systems. You will therefore be capable of providing the best possible advice to customers and instructing them in the operation of their machines. As a Mechatronics specialist for agricultural and construction machinery, musclepower is certainly not all you will need! You will also have to use the expertise and skills you have gained to operate the highly modern technology used in CLAAS machines such as hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, mechanical components and electronics.
