Increased productivity directly in the field.
All the new LEXION models can be equipped with three automatic steering systems which can be selected as needed according to application.
The satellite-based GPS Steering on the LEXION combine harvester uses global positioning to guide the machine automatically through the field with accuracy down to the inch. Gone are the days of overlapping in the field.
The LEXION offers an open architecture structure for 3rd party precision farming technology providers. Farmers are able to chose between the popular Ag Leader and Trimble GPS sterring solutions. Both steering systems operate the CLAAS AUTO PILOT valve, which can be activated via the AUTO PILOT button on the Multi-Function handle.
Optical sensors of the LASER PILOT use pulses of light to scan the edge between the crop and stubble, guiding the LEXION automatically along the crop border.
When not in use, LASER PILOT can be pivoted into transport cradles to equip either the left, right or both sides of the cutterbar. Being mounted on the header gives the LASER PILOT optimal positioning ensuring high functional reliability on gradual corners or slopes.
When both the combine and header are equipped with the option, digital row sensors attached to the center row of the corn head guide the harvester through the rows of corn automatically maintaining productivity and operator comfort.
• High reliability and safety regardless of visibility
