500,000 CLAAS combine harvesters 1936 – 2024

From 1936 to today, CLAAS has built more than 500,000 combine harvesters for the global market. Entrepreneurial and engineering spirit as well as the consistent will to enable farmers to be the best in their field turned a small mechanical engineering company into a company with a world reputation. But there's more: Milestones such as Mäh-Dresch-Binder (MDB), SUPER, SF, MATADOR GIGANT, SENATOR and of course the DOMINATOR not only helped CLAAS expand European market leadership, but also created one of the largest players in the global grain harvesting field. A legacy that the current CLAAS combine harvester family consisting of LEXION, TRION, EVION and DOMINATOR continues with a view to future challenges. Always underlining that a CLAAS combine is more than a machine.
