This work presents the results of laboratory experiments and field studies in harvesting of the sunflower crop by two combine harvesters: Claas Lexion 560 and Claas Lexion 750, both made in Germany. There are differences between this two combines at both constructive level and the degree of automation. This work has tracked the impact of the existing automation elements in the construction of the combines on the growth of their performance, by determining the work quality indexes and the energetic and operating indexes of the combines studied. The major difference has been done by both the values of the working capacity indexes and the values of the operating coefficients, which were higher for the Claas Lexion 750 combine, to the values obtained by the Claas Lexion 560 combine. Overall, the Claas Lexion 750 combine has been proven better performance, the higher level of automation of this combine had done the difference.
