CLAAS of America Inc. has announced a newly formed agreement with Trimble, a recognized leader in GPS mapping and precision guidance technology. This new collaboration allows for greater grower flexibility as CLAAS continues to lead with innovation, providing a customer-friendly interface for Trimble steering and yield mapping systems in North America.

When it comes to critical system efficiency decisions, today’s precision farming operations require flexibility and choice. Bob Armstrong, North American Product Marketing Manager further explains, “With the new interface agreement with Trimble, CLAAS growers are now able to utilize the accurate yield measurement data from the Lexion Quantimeter and display/collect the information on a Trimble monitor. Concurrently, the Trimble steering system is able to communicate directly with the CLAAS valve controller without adding any further hydraulic equipment on the LEXION combine.”

The combined force of Trimble technology and CLAAS ingenuity offers formidable solutions for growers and easy precision agricultural solutions from CLAAS.

Armstrong continues, “Growers now have the ability to outfit their machine with Trimble technology. Through their Trimble dealer, they can integrate a Trimble system to a Lexion combine harvester gaining the robust interaction between the two technologies.”
