Attracting almost 7000 entries from 50 countries, the impressive Lexion 8000/7000 series combines were just one of only 75 entries to receive a gold award.

Each entry was assessed against strict criteria for design, innovation, functionality, manufacturing quality, safety and environmental compatibility.

The Industrie Forum Design awards promote excellence in industrial design. Claas says Lexion 8000/7000’s fully-glazed cab, larger grain tank were important factors in the Lexion’s top of the podium finish.

Claas Harvest Centre product manager for Lexion Steve Reeves says the Lexion 8000/7000 is more productive, more efficient and easier to operate than ever before.

"With its revolutionary APS Synflow Hybrid threshing system and cutting-edge operating systems, this series raises the bar for harvesting performance even higher than before."

"Every aspect has been re-engineered to meet the needs of today’s grain producers – increased efficiency and ease of operation and reduced downtime and operating costs," Reeves says. "It’s effectively a new machine that delivers 10 per cent more capacity than the previous 700 series."

The Lexion 8000/7000 was designed in-house by the Claas Corporate Industrial Design Team.

"This is the first time Claas has directly submitted an entry in the iF Awards and they won a gold, which is an outstanding achievement," Reeves adds.

Claas has previously won iF awards for the Jaguar 900 and 800 forage harvesters, the Axion 800 advanced technology tractors, its Scorpion telescopic loaders range and the RTK Field Base mobile GPS station.
