The Class 10 Lexion 770 is powered by a 16 L Mercedes engine. Its engine horsepower at rated speed is 523 hp and the maximum engine horsepower is 563. The grain tank capacity is 360 bu.
The Lexion 700 Series features the Accelerated Pre-Separation (APS) threshing system.
Rounding out the lineup is the Lexion 670, a straw walker model. It has a 280 bu. grain tank and is powered by a Caterpillar C9 engine.

For easier grain return evaluation, the operator can look directly into the returns cross auger through the returns window located in the lower right hand rear corner of the cab. Also the observation window at the back of the cab looking into the grain tank has been enlarged 50%. A new grain sample outlet eliminates the needs to fill the grain tank half full to take a quality sample.
The Lexion 750, 760, 770 are equipped with a new design Clean Sweep system, which is an automatic system that continuously cleans the radiator in a sweeping motion to remove debris. The Lexion 670, 730, and 740 feature an automatic dust extractor that continuously cleans the hydraulic rotating radiator frame.

The new Terra Trac features independently suspended drive wheel, idler wheel and bogie wheels increasing operator comfort and machine stability on curves.
On-demand hydraulics provide 50% faster hydraulic flow compared with previous series. As soon as an operator engages a function, such as feederhouse lift control, there’s an automatic response.
At the back of the machine, Lexion combines can be outfitted with three different residue management options.
