Used Claas combines

Claas is a family-run company based in Harsewinkel, a small town in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Yet, Claas has achieved success on a global scale and is the European market leader for combine harvesters. Focused on the future of agriculture, Claas opened a new R&D centre in Lower Saxony in 2017, to lead in digitalisation and automation-related innovations.

The success of Claas combines can be traced back to 1995, when it released the LEXION 400 series, which featured a wider threshing drum than previous models, and the advanced CEBIS on-board computer system. Further series were released in 2001 and 2005, with the 600 series becoming the world’s most powerful combine harvester. The new 5000, 6000, 7000 and 8000 series launched in 2020, feature market-leading intelligent technologies and compete in the high-end, high-performance combine segment.

Other popular Claas models include the TUCANO, a mid-range combine first launched in 2008. It features Auto Pilot and Laser Pilot systems for added efficiency and convenience and can accommodate a wide range of attachments for optimal versatility. It is adept at working with all crop types and delivers high-quality straw.

The AVERO was released in 2009 with a different target market in mind, namely small and medium-sized farms. It draws on the same technologies used in the LEXION and TUCANO models but in a more compact, agile and fuel-efficient package. Additionally, the recently launched TRION model was named FARM MACHINE 2022 in the Combine Harvester category and includes numerous intelligent technologies and customisation options.
