CLAAS of America today announces the launch of the all-new LEXION 6000 Series straw walker combines. The new technology offers an engineered mix of efficiency, precision and convenience that excels in crops like wheat, canola and grass seed – all in a reliable and easily-maintained package.
With two new models to choose from, the new LEXION straw walker combines are designed to save time and make the job easier for farmers who want efficient separation without over threshing grain or damaging straw.
“LEXION combines have built a reputation for delivering increased harvest efficiency and productivity, saving fuel and grain, and driving down the cost of harvest for more than twenty years,” says Blake McOllough, Product Manager – Combines, CLAAS of America. “Designed with efficiency in mind, the LEXION 6000 Series straw walker combine does that and more with new cutting-edge technology to keep operators harvesting acres in record time.”
Enhanced efficiency for more throughput
With the increased capacity of the new LEXION 6900 and 6800, the new machines provide up to 25 percent more throughput. The APS SYNFLOW WALKER threshing and separation system has the straightest crop flow in the industry and the only combine on the market with an accelerator drum for constant crop acceleration, efficient grain separation and gentle straw handling without having to make any sacrifices.
It brings together the accelerated crop flow provided by APS with an additional separator drum after the threshing drum, delivering exceptional, fuel-efficient throughput and the highest straw quality.
Paired with the industry’s largest grain tank and fastest unloading speeds, the new LEXION straw walker combines are built to cut through more acres with zero compromise.
Heightened precision through advanced technology
The LEXION combine gives operators the advantages they’re looking for. The combine is equipped with more in-cab controls and on-the-fly adjustment capabilities, along with the highest-quality machine performance feedback for ensured success. At the peak of precision is the CEMOS AUTOMATIC combine automation system that makes autonomous and automatic real-time, in-field adjustments with more precision and speed than a seasoned operator.
Optimal convenience for minimal downtime
With the industry’s fastest transport speed at 25 mph (40 kph), the new LEXION combine not only gets operators through the field faster, but it also gets them to the next field faster. New in-cab conversion capabilities make it simpler and faster to switch between crops when needed – reducing crop conversion time by more than 50 percent. Intuitive cab design enhancements were made for operator comfort.
Daily maintenance time is shortened with features like the automatic central lubrication system and DYNAMIC COOLING to increase air filter service intervals by up to two weeks.
“The LEXION is the only combine that can get more done in the same amount of time,” says McOllough. “With exceptional, fuel-efficient throughput; gentler grain handling; and the highest straw quality, the new LEXION 6900 and 6800 combines make no compromises.”
