Some CLAAS Tractor Manuals PDF are above the page.
1887 is considered the year of foundation of this company, which was engaged in a completely different kind of production and specialized in the development and production of dairy centrifuges.
The company inherited its name and trademark from the founder – Franz Claas Sr., whose son in 1913 became at her helm and later, joining his forces with the rest of the brothers, set about promoting the idea of ??manufacturing agricultural equipment for the needs of Germany. The brothers started the development of the prototype already in 1930.
The first serious success to their enterprise came only six years later, when their harvesting device attached to the leading tractor, and in fact it was the first combine harvested in the territory of modern Europe, was liked by German farmers. Therefore, a year later, this combine began to be produced in series. The harvester was a versatile unit that combined a mower, a thresher, and a knitting machine, and could process thirty tons of wheat, unprecedented for those times, in one day.
Twenty years later, a fully self-propelled combine harvester equipped with its own propulsion unit, which became the benchmark for modern agricultural equipment, entered the fields. With the passage of time and the emergence of new technologies, this combine has only been improved and refined to more effectively conduct work in conditions of very different climates and work with various types of crops.
In 1966, the company acquired its corporate identity, having decided on the color scheme of the manufactured equipment, which was now painted in a light green color. The first combine, released in a new style, was the combine model Senator, which set a number of performance records of its kind, taking into account the applied drive system.
In 1867, the Claas Markant baler was released, featuring a floating rod. In total, the manufacturer produced about one hundred thirty thousand similar machines.
Already in 1969, the first forage harvesters appeared, and a year later, through the purchase of third-party producers, it was possible to significantly expand the list of manufactured products.
In 1970, the legendary line of grain harvesting machinery called Dominator, which still exists today, was born.
In 1981, the company produces a combine, which later will set a world record for the collection of wheat, calling it Commandor. The harvester was equipped with a cylinder system.
In 1992, the company moved to other continents, opening its assembly plant in India.
In 1995, the manufacturer of the technology appears modern hybrid system under the line Lexion.
