CLAAS TRION 740 vs John Deere S770:

Profiting With Automation

The John Deere S770 is one of the most popular class-7 combines in North America – and has been for many years. So when CLAAS launched the new TRION 740 combine this summer, one of the first questions we heard was "How do the two machines stack up?" This fall we decided to unleash the machines on a southern Nebraska corn field to find out for ourselves.

The Next Generation XERION Delivers More.

Upgrades where it matters most.

Ever since it hit the North American shores, the XERION line of high-horsepower tractors has been known for its refined ride, high transport speeds, excellent fuel economy and a whisper-quiet cab. Its unique, fixed-frame design, efficient CVT transmission, and 4-wheel steering delivers a smoother operator experience than the articulated alternatives.

The LEXION 6800 Straw Walker

Inventory Now Available!

Throughout most parts of North America, LEXION 8000 and 7000 Series combines are recognized for their powerful APS SYNFLOW HYBRID system, featuring pre-separation cylinders and twin-rotors for threshing. In other areas, like the Willamette River Valley in Oregon and across the western plains of Canada, many farmers prefer the high capacity and gentle straw handling of a straw walker machine. For this select group, there’s no better combine than the LEXION 6000 Series with the APS SYNFLOW WALKER system.

A Cut Above

Color-coded blades simplify DISCO mower maintenance

With its industry-leading MAX CUT cutter bar, the DISCO line of mowers from CLAAS has always had a leg up on the competition. Known for rugged durability, superior cut quality and added fuel savings, DISCO mowers are the preferred choice of many professional operators. One of the more recent innovations in the DISCO line required fewer engineering hours, and just a little more paint.

Section 179

Tax Advantages on New & Used Equipment

As 2022 comes to an end, US farmers should be sure to take advantage of Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code. According to the IRS, businesses are able to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment (including new and used combines, forage harvesters, tractors and other CLAAS equipment) used on the farm. Qualifying purchases are not limited to new purchases, so see your CLAAS dealer for the best financing options on both new and used equipment.
