Ag Equipment Intelligence reports:

Claas' long talked about entry into the North American tractor market is upon us.

The company gave North American editors a sneak peak at its new Xerion tractor that's designed specifically for the North American market during its Lexion Adventures in the Field event July 16-17 in Omaha, Neb.

Claas will officially introduce the tractor to the rest of the industry later this month during the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, and later at Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska.

With 435-530 horsepower from MTU Mercedes-Benz engines, it would compete with U.S. favorites on tracks and tires but with a rigid 4WD drive chassis, multi-mode 4-wheel steering and stepless CVT drive.

Claas also recently opened a new company owned and operated dealership in Regina, Saskatchewan, near its newly opened Parts & Logistics Center and regional training academy. Tingley's Harvest Center also recently opened in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, and carries Claas' full line of equipment.
