Displaying grain quality on the go with Lexion

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.

“With all of the automatic technologies built into the Lexion combine, having a camera to provide visual confirmation of that quality is a nice addition,” said Gray. “Even though you know the machine is making all the minute changes necessary to optimize performance, for a lot of farmers seeing is believing.”

In addition to the camera, the new combines use touch-screen technology for easy, on-the-go adjustments and simplified operation.
