CLAAS triple celebration at Cereals

claas lexion terra trac
CLAAS will be celebrating a unique LEXION 'triple' at this year's Cereals event.

• 10 years of LEXION
• 20,000 th LEXION produced
• 2,000 th LEXION sold in the UK

Firstly, it will be 10 years since the first CLAAS LEXION 480 combine was launched. When it was introduced in 1995, the LEXION 480 with its high potential output and advanced electronic systems, based about the CEBIS control unit, represented a major step forward in combine design.

Ten years later, it's fair to say that the LEXION range has revolutionised the harvesting of arable crops. Who would have though then that a single combine, the LEXION 580, would have the capacity to clear over 3,000 acres a season.

Whilst the range has been updated, new models added, and additional features introduced, the basic threshing and separation system has remained the same and there is still nothing to match the current LEXION range for output and cost effective harvesting.

20,000th model

Such has been the success of the LEXION range throughout the World, coinciding with the LEXION's 10 th Birthday CLAAS is also celebrating the production of the 20,000 th LEXION model to roll off the Harsewinkel production line, only four years after the 10,000 th machine was produced.

One of the largest markets for the LEXION is the UK, and it is appropriate that at the Cereals event CLAAS UK will be recognising a further milestone, the sale of the 2,000 th LEXION to a UK user. This machine, a LEXION 570, will be on display on the CLAAS stand and will be officially handed over to its new owner at the show.
