After 1st year with Lexion(green before):
1. Got in cab last week as dealer doing post harvest check, smelled like mouse heaven. Got to do better than that, Lexion. Found open hole in back bottom of cab near wire entry. At the top of cab, grommet didn't seal wire where AC hoses and wires come thru. Chewed through cab air filters.
2. BTW, if they want to make inroads in cornbelt, Claas needs to have own dealerships
3. Header calibrations need to be updated. Why mash head down to ground. Also, when you calibrate the head with machine, how about if the machine remembers it next time head is hooked up.
4. 2 height sensors on 12 row corn head not enough, also don't work nearly as well as Deere's. Will prob have to spend money and put on headsight.
5. If Claas wants to sell combines in corn/soybean country where we switch back and forth sometimes everyday, streamline the switchover. Sometimes takes me 15 minutes to break the chopper knifves free. Deere, takes 10 seconds from 1 side of the combine.
6. Need button/switch to be able to move header tilt cylinder instead of trying to find it on CEBIS. Touch srceen might be nice.
7. Feeder house dust is terrible. Need to figure out a fan that doesn't plug with debris.
8. Had to stop and adjust the top cab lights so I could see more than 20 feet in front of the head.
For all the guys complaining about rock trap cleanout, evidently you have used a pry bar to unlodge debris in a Deere's. Lexion's much easier. Plus, the Lexion FH actually rasies up, much easier to get underneath.
But, with all those negatives, their tracks, capacity, grain sample are far superior.
