I was talking to a fellow who is in the know about the Claas products the other day, mainly about the short comings of mother Claas when it comes to problem solving with issues that techs and owners are experiencing and the fact that most dealers experience probably close to 80% of the same issues and because there is no detact type information sharing between dealers here in Australia and possibly everywhere else in the world as well, techs and owners are reinventing the wheel on a regular basis when it comes to solving an issue they may have, which can end up being expensive for the dealership and also the owner of the machine. Is there a shared detact type tech assistance for Claas techs in Canada and USA or are you guys reinventing the wheel as well every time you come up against an issue someone else may have already come up with solution? I know that this forum has helped me a lot over the years and to the knowledgeable guys on here I thank you very much. One thing I have found out lately is that the newer combines have an all new variator bush setup instead of the plastic bushes they have a brass bush setup, our local techs are seeing no wear in this new setup at all when you would be looking at changing out the old style plastic ones. Thatís a fantastic development but the best thing is you can get these brass bushes for your earlier model 700 series Lexions at least not sure about the 500 series. A great addition to our last Lexion 760tt was the auto grease option especially on the tracks pivots it easily doubled the idler pivot bush life we changed the first set out at 1000hrs with no wear past the bush edges making it a cheap fixes. What fixes or improvements have you found?
