LEXION: Ahead of its time

12/15/2010 @ 9:13am

Part of developing a brand is building loyalty to a product that consumers can count on. When companies develop or upgrade equipment, it’s no secret they oftentimes look to customers for insight.

Claas is no exception to that thinking. “Only one force could make the LEXION the success it is today – our customers. Therefore, their opinions are our benchmark,” says Bob Armstrong, Claas North America. “We listened to their needs, understood their wants, and improved. We integrated technology and fine-tuned the existing, and gave it a new, bold image. The result is the new LEXION.”

The 700 Series combines, which include the 770/770 TT, 760/760 TT, 750/750 TT, 740/740 TT, 730, and the 670 Straw Walker, have six features that are ahead of their time, thanks to customer input.

1. Deluxe Cab

More space, comfort, and operator performance are the three cornerstones inside the cab. From air conditioning that provides a consistent, comfortable atmosphere to a three-position adjustable steering column and optimum leg room, this combine offers the best in working conditions.

2. Terra Trac

The new LEXION is able to get from field to field faster than any other track combine because of Terra Trac (up to 25 mph on the 750 TT). The integrated intelligent track system improves adaptation to ground contour, which lowers stress on the machine.

3. Technology

Claas sums up its electronic expertise in one word – EASY (Efficient Agriculture Systems). Equipment settings, steering systems, and software solutions are simple.

The CEBIS display (Claas Electronic On-Board Information System) is tasked with total machine monitoring and control, which is distinguished by the clear, intuitive menu structure. Claas’s telematics system allows users to access all the important data for their combine via the Internet anytime.

LEXION combines can be equipped with one of three automatic steering systems: GPS steering, Laser Pilot, or Auto Pilot.

4. Front Attachments

Because the combine must feed as efficiently as possible, producers need a header that meets their needs. The standard feeder house works with all crops so no time is wasted changing over. The HP feeder house allows fast, simple adjustment of the cutting angle to adapt to changing field conditions. Choose from corn heads, chopping corn heads, MaxFlo draper, MaxFlex, Flex, Rice, Swathmaster, and Rake-Up headers.
