Nominated in the category Combine
Powered by engines generating up to 790hp, the 7000 and 8000 series Lexion models from Claas push beyond the boundaries into a new output dimension. Currently the world’s most powerful combine, the Lexion 8900 is a hybrid that relies on a tangential threshing system complete with impeller drum and axial separation system. A 755mm threshing drum with 10 rasp bars is followed by a new and larger feeding drum that passes the crop flow to the 600mm-diameter separation rotors. Grain tank emptying rates are 180l/s as standard from a 13,500-18,000-litre tank.The new cab design offers more room and improved noise damping.
