CLAAS LEXION honored at SIMA 2022

With the FARM MACHINE Awards, outstanding innovations in agricultural engineering are honored in the annual alternation of Agritechnica and SIMA. One of the coveted awards went to the latest generation of LEXION combine harvesters from CLAAS.

In the 100th year of its existence, SIMA will take place on a new date in November. On the first day of the fair, outstanding innovations in agricultural engineering are traditionally honored with the FARM MACHINE Award. CLAAS was able to impress the jury of international trade journalists in the combine harvester category this year with the new LEXION, which was presented to the public in summer 2022.

The CLAAS France team (Franck Nowak, Bernard Neuville, Didier Collobert, Philippe Lerat) and Matthias Mumme (left), Head of the Trade Press, were delighted to receive the award.

With four model ranges the LEXION is the spearhead of the CLAAS combine harvester range and is manufactured in Harsewinkel, Germany and in Omaha in the US. The innovations introduced for the 2023 season include a larger cab with a rotating driver's seat, the new CEMIS 1200 terminal with the new GPS PILOT, performance and crop flow optimization, larger grain tanks and optional additional equipment such as a pivoting spout for the grain tank discharge auger or the variable steering ratio DYNAMIC STEERING. In addition, new CEMOS functionalities are available for process optimization in terms of productivity and efficiency. In Europe, the LEXION 8600 also supplements the product range.

"With the LEXION, CLAAS has been setting pioneering accents in combine harvester construction since 1995 and has continued this innovative strength ever since," explains Jan-Hendrik Mohr, who is responsible for the grain harvesting business area on the CLAAS Group Executive Board. "We are particularly pleased that, after the TRION series was awarded the title of FARM MACHINE 2022, we can now continue this success with the new LEXION. The FARM MACHINE Awards and other awards are an incentive for us to continue to live up to our claim as a benchmark for high-performance combines in the interests of our customers.”

In 2019, with the introduction of the LEXION 5000/6000/7000/8000, CLAAS initiated a continuous renewal process for the entire combine harvester range, and with the LEXION and TRION offers the widest range of combine harvesters on the market thanks to their modular design.
