Omaha, Neb. — Claas of America announced at the 2018 Farm Progress Show the launch of First Claas Used, the next generation of used equipment certification, offering a new level of uniformity and accountability for reconditioned Claas equipment.

“You wouldn’t buy a house without first having it inspected, so why should a grower settle for anything less with their pre-owned machines?” says Claas Remarketing Manager Allen Miller. “The First Claas Used program adds transparency to the used equipment transaction and helps ensure that growers are set up for success when they make that investment in pre-owned equipment.”

Claas introduced the industry’s first certified used equipment program in 2011 with the launch of and its Lexion Field Ready Reconditioned Program. The new program focuses on enhancing the value of used Claas equipment beginning with three different levels of reconditioning.

“This First Claas Used program allows growers to find not only what Claas machinery best fits their needs, but also what falls within their budget,” Miller said. “The program offers growers transparency and peace of mind. Claas takes a lot of pride in knowing that after purchasing their Claas equipment, growers know exactly what they’re getting — no matter the originating dealer.”

By formalizing the process and simplifying the methodology, Claas has created a common standard throughout the dealer network.
