New Lexion combines streamline harvest for greater productivity

When farmers harvest crops with Lexion 8000-7000 series combines, they’ll be riding with more efficiency, precision, convenience and reliability.

That was the key message Claas shared with farmers when the manufacturer unveiled its new combines at the Farm Progress Show at Decatur, Illinois.

In this interview, Claas combines product manager Blake McOllough notes the 8000-7000 series combines have the capacity to harvest all types of crops in all types of conditions, covering more acres per hour and achieving even better grain quality while protecting against overloading.

With the addition of the APS Synflow Hybrid system, the combines deliver 10 per cent more capacity than the previous series. Grain handling is also improved, with unloading speeds as fast as 5.1 bushels per second and the industry’s largest grain tank that features a 510-bushel capacity.

McOllough adds that operators can cover significantly more ground with a 25-mph transport speed with both wheeled and Terra Trac models. In addition, the operator also saves time with crop changeover capabilities, straight from the cab, with just the touch of a button. (Story continues after the video.)

The 8000-7000 series combines also give farmers the ability to independently adjust threshing and separation to manage changing crop conditions and increase grain retention, notes Claas field support product manager Jeff Gray. Operators can engage the intensive threshing segment and adjust rotor cover plates with new push-button controls, increasing their control.

Gray adds that Claas Cemos Automatic technology allows 8000-7000 series combine operators to gain 10 percent more capacity, reduce foreign matter in the grain sample by 32 per cent, and realize a 58 per cent increase in grain retention by continuously and autonomously adjusting and optimizing machine performance.
