There’s a lot to pay attention to in the Lexion 760TT. Whether it’s crop clearing, residual grain separation or straw management, there’s fine details for every aspect of the machine.
In the Cab of the Lexion 760TT
One of the biggest draws for the Claas Lexion 760TT is the cab. The ergonomic layout combined with the east-to-reach controls means every part of this combine harvester is at your fingertips.
Let’s start with the basics. The cushioned, air-suspension seat automatically adjusts to the operators weight and effectively reduces up to 40% of vibrations. A 2-part lumbar support will help keep your back in the correct shape, even over a long day of work. While the active comfort control provides sufficient ventilation to reduce sweating in hot weather. Of course, big days of work require a break every now and then, which is why the passenger seat has a fully integrated refrigerator box with a capacity of 43L and a bottle holder. Fold down the backrest and you’ve got a table as well!
The highlight of the cab however, is the sheer volume of controls and monitors. Almost every single function of the Claas Lexion 760TT can either be monitored or individually controlled—sometimes both.
The in-cab display shows all the important information that an operator needs to effectively use this combine harvester, including:
- Throughput monitoring
- Area scaling & yield metering
- Driving information (up to 40 display options available)
- Message window for alarms & information
- Front attachment position
- Returns check
On the operating panel, you’ll find an almost incomprehensible number of buttons and switches that may seem daunting at first, but as soon as you’ve got them down pat you’ll never want to go back.
There’s a front attachment on/off button, a threshing unit on/off button, diesel engine speed switch, parking brake switch and more. But, for the complete level of control, the CMOTION lever is where the Claas Lexion 760TT really shines.
Cleverly laid out to be simple and intuitive to use, operators have buttons, switches or dials for some of the most important functions of the combine harvester:
- Grain tank unloading tube extension & retraction
- Grain tank unloading on/off
- Cutterbar stop
- Reel operation
- Front attachment height control
- Auto pilot
Almost every part of the cab is adjustable to suit the operator.
