Re: Cat Lexion 460 with Honeybee front
They were some of the most expensive combines on the market, consistently dearer than Case IH, Johnny's & New Holland, whether this will change now they are under Claas & Landpower, I dont know.

They are one of the most popular combines throughout Europe, especially in the UK & Germany. They are even pretty popular across the Tasman, in New Zealand.

yeah my boss is a Claas authorized mechanic, he lived in the states for a few years, they are way a head in technology, he said that they could dial up the harvesters in the paddock form their dealership and fix problems over the phone via a connection between the harvester and his computer

Re: Cat Lexion 460 with Honeybee front
Yes they are a popular machine but donet seem to have caught on as much here (compared to the numbers of used Case & JD machines you see advertised for sale).

Maybe this will change if the price becomes more competitive

Re: Cat Lexion 460 with Honeybee front
Fixing software problems and reading error logs by "calling" the combine was just a matter of time. But you can't fix a broken part with a "call". In the future there will be various sensors in the machines that will "report" malfunctioning (and thus doomed to fail) parts to the control unit that "talks" to the operator or directly to the service staff. They can then prepare the "operation" and replace the malfunctioning part before it breaks down and causes even more damage. Especially bearings, engines and transmissions can get monitored like that

Ah, the beauty of technology!

Who knows what the next 10 years will hold in the farm machinery technology game (One only has to think back over the past 10 years to see the way that farm machinery has changed).

Look at the way tractors & combines have changed over the past 10 years; today everything is sleeker & more intelligent than it's predecessor.

Time will tell I guess :-)
