The history of CLAAS combine harvester

The history of CLAAS combines dates back to 1936 when the company introduced the first CLAAS combine – a combination of a mower, thresher, and binder (MDB), designed specifically for European conditions. The first such machine was delivered to the Zschernitz estate near Halle/Saale, paving the way for further production of CLAAS combines. MDB production reached approximately 1400 units until production was suspended in 1943 due to the war. From 1946 to 1978, CLAAS developed, introducing new combine models, including the self-propelled Super model, which gained recognition among European farmers from 1946 onwards. Super model production exceeded 65,000 units until production was suspended in 1978. From 1953 to 1963, CLAAS began producing self-propelled combines, presenting the first model of a self-propelled Hercules combine in 1952, which operated on the principle of longitudinal flow. Soon, SF models were introduced, which were appreciated by customers for their working width and versatility. From 1958 to 1970, models like Europa and Columbus appeared, primarily intended for smaller farms that previously used stationary machinery. In the following years, CLAAS continued to develop its combine line, introducing models such as Matador, Mercur, and Compact to meet the growing needs of agriculture. In 2002, the Medion model was introduced to the market, which succeeded the Dominator series, offering flexibility and efficiency in crop harvesting. In 2007, CLAAS set new standards in the upper middle class segment, introducing the Tucano series, distinguished by versatility and modern technological solutions. Thanks to innovative features such as the APS threshing system and steering systems like AUTO PILOT and LASER PILOT, Claas Tucano combines are adapted for work on farms of various sizes and needs.
