This week, Claas of America announced its all-new Lexion 8000-7000 series combine. The company says the new machine will streamline harvest and save time and money.
“The redesign brings together significant engineering advancements from Claas that deliver on the superior productivity that today’s ag business demands, offering the best return on investment and allowing the operator to get more done in less time,” says Blake McOllough, product manager, combines.
APS Synflow Hybrid system
The first of the upgrades is to the combine processor. Claas upgraded from their previous APS Hybrid System to the APS Synflow Hybrid system. The new processor has 10% more capacity, improved grain handling with unload speeds as fast as 5.1 bu. per second and a larger grain tank that holds 510 bu.
APS Synflow Hybrid system improves efficiency with separate speed controls for the separation and threshing systems within the combine, says Jeff Gray, independent product specialist, on behalf of Claas.
In addition to an improved processor, the Lexion combine has made several other adjustments, including:
- 25 mile-per-hour transport speed
- Crop changeover capability within the cab
- Maintenance time is cut in half with Dynamic Cooling, a central lubrication system
“At Claas, we know that time is money, and achieving the highest possible productivity is paramount,” McOllough says. “The newest Lexicon combine was designed with those requirements in mind, delivering highly advanced engineering that streamlines the harvest and makes more money for our customers’ farm businesses.”
