LEXION 780 760 750 740 730 670

Committed to productivity

Time is money and we at CLAAS know you expect the highest possible productivity from your combine, so we are committed to bringing you just that.

From the moment the crop flows into the feederhouse and into either the APS HYBRID SYSTEM (LEXION 700 Series) or APS straw walker (LEXION 600 Series) threshing and separation system, to the moment the clean grain hits the grain tank and residue is spread, we offer more capacity, more performance and more efficiency.

THRESHING AND SEPARATION. LEXION 700 SERIES: APS HYBRID SYSTEM

The APS HYBRID SYSTEM

The APS HYBRID SYSTEM on the LEXION 700 Series is acombination of two industry-leading technologies: theAccelerated Pre-Separation (APS) threshing system and thehighly efficient ROTO PLUS dual rotor separation system.

Only CLAAS integrates both systems into one machine,giving you a significant competitive edge over othercombine processors.

Features:

  • LEXION 780/760: 67 in (1700 mm) chassis width -1:1 feed/thresh ratio
  •  LEXION 750/740/730: 56 in (1420 mm) chassis width -1:1 feed/thresh ratio

Threshing: APS

The crop flow is accelerated (optimized) before threshing toensure gentle and effective threshing. The crop mat is spreadevenly over the entire width of the threshing system,smoothing out any dense wads of material. Up to 30 percentof the crop is pre-separated at the pre-concave, resulting inmore efficient threshing due to a thinner crop mat.

Features:

  • Synchronized tri-cylinder threshing system
  • 24 in (600 mm) rasp bar threshing cylinder
  • Interchangeable APS grates
  • Parallel concave adjustment with overload protection
  • Lever-operated dis-awning plates

Separation: ROTO PLUS

The ROTO PLUS separation system features two counterrotating,17.5 in (445 mm) diameter rotors to generate moreseparation force, more efficiently, than combines with a singlerotorprocessor. When that force is combined with the 14 ft(4,200 mm) rotor length, the result is the industry’s highestcapacity separation system. The rotor returns pan deliversseparated material to the pre-cleaner for maximum cleaning.

Features:

  • Dual rotor separation
  • 17.5 in (445 mm) diameter
  • 14 ft (4,200 mm) length
  • Up to four rotor cover plates

Hydrostatic ground drive

The LEXION hydrostatic ground drive delivers industry-leading torque for maximum operating efficiency, no matter the conditions, and is easily controlled using either of the two multi-function lever options.

DYNAMIC COOLING. Automatic cooling intelligence

DYNAMIC COOLING

All LEXION combines are equipped with the revolutionary DYNAMIC COOLING system, which is positioned horizontally behind the engine to pull air from above the combine where it is coolest and cleanest. Air is drawn through the radiator housing and engine compartment by the cooling fan, then exits out the vents in the side panel where it forces dust and light debris away from the combine – preventing it from being pulled in by the cooling fan.

Features:

  • 63 in (1,600 mm) diameter rotary screen
  • Dust suction fan actively keeps the rotary screen area freeof dust and debris
  • Variable speed cooling fan adjusts according to engine loadand temperature

Keep dust away: the curtain effect

As the air is forced out through the vents in the side panels, it creates a curtain effect that forces dust and debris away from the combine, preventing it from being pulled in by the cooling fan. This results in a significant increase to the air filter service interval.

Save fuel through variable fan drive

The DYNAMIC COOLING fan is variable speed and adjusts automatically to the temperature of the engine. As the engine heats up the fan speed increases, and as engine cools the fan speed decreases – resulting in significantly less power required to run the cooling fan compared to conventional fans running at a constant high rpm.

4-link axle. More maneuverability.

4-link axle

The industry’s first suspended rear combine axle, developed by CLAAS, sets a new standard for combine steering axles. Unlike conventional center-pivoting steering axles, the 4-link steering axle is suspended from two points that not only allow it to pivot, but also to shift sideways for improved terrain compensation and steering. A larger steering angle and center-mounted steering cylinder provide additional performance improvement. 

Center link axle 

The center link steering axle, developed by CLAAS, pivots at the center and features a center-mounted single steering cylinder and larger turning angle for an improved turning radius over previous steering axles.

POWER TRAC

POWER TRAC is a combine rear wheel assist system designed by CLAAS specifically for LEXION combines. It features a large hydrostatic motor connected to a differential mounted centrally to the front side of the rear axle. Power is transferred from the differential to planetary wheel drives by drive shafts running through the axle. POWER TRAC gives LEXION combines 33 percent more rear wheel tractive power over conventional hydraulic wheel motor systems. 

Features: 

  • POWER TRAC can be engaged on-the-fly 
  • Two-wheel drive operation on-the-fly 
  • 33 percent more tractive power over hydraulic wheel motor systems

4-link axle. More maneuverability.

TERRA TRAC

Low ground disturbance at harvest maintains good soil structure and enables optimal plant growth in the next season. 

Leading performance, comfort and convenience. 

The generation three TERRA TRAC offers the highest quality ride with the lowest ground pressure. Its exclusive fullysuspended in-line design ensures more efficient transfer of power to its 35 in wide belts for maximum traction and leading flotation. Hydro-pneumatic cylinders dampen the movement of the track frame as it takes on the shape of the terrain to ensure full belt contact for reduced compaction and leading comfort and stability.
