Claas unveiled a few new features for its 2018 Lexion lineup at Farm Progress Show in Illinois last month.

“We’re continuing to make the machine smarter,” says Jeff Gray, product coordinator for Lexion.

The changes start with a new grain quality camera, which is mounted on the clean grain elevator, giving the operator a screenshot of the flow of crop, while also identifying any broken kernels or foreign material in the system.
