CLAAS celebrates half a million combine harvesters

CLAAS is celebrating the production of a half million combine harvesters built since 1936. To celebrate the occasion, the company has produced several “special anniversary edition” machines at three production facilities on three different continents. Two anniversary machines (LEXION combines) have rolled off the production line in Omaha, Nebraska, bound for farms in the US and Canada. These specially badged machines will be on display at trade shows, field days and demonstrations in the coming weeks and months.
