Smile Biggest Combine in the World

What is the largest combine on the market right now. Someone told me that the new John Deere combines were, but I always thought New Holland made the biggest combine. Thanks for the replies!

Its Great and White. Can easily harvest green stems and high moisture crops. But it doesn't leave much standing residue and throws a lot over. Doesn't even need a trucker, though! It seems the economics of the Great White Combine are entirely tied to Hail Insurance.


Most likely, the Claas Lexion 770 is the highest capacity combine in the world. And probably the heaviest too. And the most hp too I think. But let the games begin!!!

Ok, i've heard the older lexions aren't very good combines and I haven't heard a whole lot about the newer lexions, but what I have they are possibly the best out there.

No, the NA ratings for the 770 is 563, the "Belgian" built 9090 is 593 and the S690 is 617, all at peak HP.
I remember my dad's M M pull type had 40 hp on the deck.

I completely agree with you, all hype, little substance.
Too bad they don't have a number crunching version.
