The CLAAS TRION combine harvester series was honored by an international jury as FARM MACHINE 2022 in the combine harvester category. Due to the corona pandemic, the award took place digitally.

Every two years, a jury of international agricultural and agricultural engineering journalists presents the FARM MACHINE Awards. Normally, these are awarded at Agritechnica, but due to the cancellation of this year’s world leading trade fair for agricultural technology, the leading German Landwirtschaftsverlag (dlv) decided on a digital award, with one category per day over a period of around three weeks.

In the “Combine Harvester” category, the CLAAS TRION combine series convinced the jury of its worthiness of the award. “The FARM MACHINE Award is a great honor for everyone who worked on this product and confirms our development goal of a strongly customer-oriented, technologically broad-based mid-range combine harvester,” explains Jan-Hendrik Mohr, who is responsible for the grain harvesting business area on the CLAAS Group Executive Board . “Rarely before have farmers and contractors from all the important growing regions in the world been so central to a new development as with the TRION. As a result, we can now cover an equipment range from low-spec to high-spec from 258 hp, which gives customers the opportunity to catch up technologically with the LEXION, or to use a simple machine without a lot of electronics to suit their business.”

The TRION was first presented and launched in Europe in the summer of 2021 under the slogan “Fits your farm.” With 20 models in the range, together with its wide choice of features, it completely redefines the medium combine harvester performance class. From the 258 hp five-walker to the 435 hp hybrid combine with double rotor, almost all models can be equipped with for example TERRA TRAC crawler tracks, belt inclined conveyors, MONTANA chassis slope compensation or various expansion stages of the CEMOS driver assistance system. In addition, the new CLAAS GPS PILOT with the CEMIS 1200 terminal for automatic GPS-controlled steering with the TRION was introduced.

Series production of the TRION started in February on the new combine harvester assembly line at the Harsewinkel headquarters, which was completely revamped just a few months ago.
