Farming Simulator 19 mods showcase: The Americanized Claas Lexion 780 combine harvester, modded by CNH Modding. Look for the download link at the end of the showcase.
Yes, there are other, North American versions of the Lexion 700 series available for Farming Simulator 19. But none of those have the amazing Maurer and Harvest Master hopper extensions, made by BlendArt.
The Lexion 780 mod does not include headers. You can use the base game Capello headers for harvesting corn. And if you want color options for both corn and grain headers, I can recommend Iconik Upgrades headers pack (click here.)
There’s also the MacDon FD75 headers pack by Big Boss Modding (I’ve written about it here.) They work, despite having some imperfections.
This Claas combine uses the old color scheme derived from the former cooperation with Caterpillar. New Claas combines, like the 7000 and 8000 series, will use the familiar bright green, yellow and white colors in the North American region as well.
FS 19 Claas Lexion 780 (US & CAN)
Few Americanized Farming Simulator 19 combine mods look as authentic as this one. The extra extensions are pure gold. Here are the specs:
- Brand: Claas of America.
- Credits: CNH Modding (FS19 version.)
- Category: Harvesters.
- Base price: 388,000.
- Engine configurations: 1.
- Power range: 626 horsepower.
- Top speed: 24 miles per hour | 40 kilometers per hour.
- Working speed: Depends on which header you’re using – Often 6 mph | 10 kph.
- Grain hopper capacity: From 8,000 to 25,000 liters (changes with extensions.)
- Selectable colors: No.
- Selectable wheels: Yes.
- Wheel brands: Trelleborg and Michelin.
- Errors: No, just a small warning.
- Platforms: PC and Mac.
The Claas combine did not produce log errors. But I spotted one little warning:
../mods/Lexion_780_US_Bin_Config/Lexion780.xml): I3D file offers '4' objects, but '2' components have been loaded!
The mod has an extra camera and a light that isn’t mentioned in the XML file. Removing those (if you know your way around XML editing) will eliminate the warning.
