Claas, Trimble partner on GPS, guidance equipment

Claas of America has formed an agreement with Trimble Navigation to provide steering and yield-mapping systems on Claas equipment.

The new agreement with Trimble allows Claas growers to use yield measurement data from the Lexion Quantimeter and display/collect the information on a Trimble monitor, explains Bob Armstrong, North American product marketing manager. “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,” he says.

Armstrong adds that growers can integrate a Trimble system in a Lexion combine through a Trimble dealer.
