TEST DRIVE: New Claas Lexion 780 combine, new for 2014


Claas intern Julian Kollmeyer takes Senior Editor Jodie Wehrspann for a ride in the new, model year 2014 Lexion 780, Claas’ biggest combine to date and its second class 10 model.  A 16L Mercedes-Benz engine peaks out at 590 hp to provide power to the largest crop headers on the market. Kollmeyer demonstrates the third-generation Terra Trac track system, which provides stability on hills, and Auto Contour, a feature that keeps the corn heard close to the ground by automatically adjusting to ground contours.

You can also check out a 3D walkaround of the combine, including its threshing system and more by visiting - Claas 780 in 3D
