Claas Trion, versatile combined harvesters
The Claas Trion mid-range series of combines has been awarded the Farm Machine 2022 prize by a jury of international journalists and experts. The prize, which is normally awarded during Agritechnica in Hanover, was awarded online this year following the relocation of the event. The Trion range was presented and launched for the first time in Europe in the summer of 2021 under the claim "Fits your farm", and consists of 20 models available with a wide range of optional extras and with different features depending on specific work requirements. Indeed, the machine has been designed by German engineers to suit every market, from Europe and North America to South Africa, and is aimed at family farms, but also at medium and large farms (from 200 to 1,000 hectares) with high production requirements. They are therefore flexible machines that offer high performance with crops such as wheat, rape, maize, soya or rice on hilly or flat land. In addition to their outstanding versatility, Trion models provide efficient harvesting, top manoeuvrability and driving comfort - reads a note from the German manufacturer. From the 258 Hp five-straw walker combine to the 45 Hp hybrid version with twin rotors, almost all Trion models can be equipped with Terra Trac tracks, with rubber belt feeder channel, Montana system for side slope compensation and Cemos driving assistance system. Other highlights include the new Claas GPS Pilot system with Cemis 1200 terminal for automatic steering.
