New additions to the Landini tractor range will make its debut in Ireland at the FTMTA’s Grass & Muck Event, Gurteen Agricultural College, Co Tipperary on May 17.
The 110hp Landini 6-115H will be hot off the assembly lines at the Argo Tractors factory in northern Italy, where more than 70% by value of Landini models is manufactured, including front axles, cabs and transaxles.
Among the 44-225hp tractors now being assembled at the Fabbrico plant are the new 6-H Series of three mid-range models with 110hp, 119hp and 126hp engine outputs.
The newcomers slot into the range between the 99-113hp Landini 5 Series tractors, which donate their spacious but low-profile cab to the new models, and the 114-140hp Landini 6-C Series tractors, from which the heavy-duty transmission is sourced.
Together with a 3.6-litre compact four-cylinder engine, this combination of assemblies creates an appealing package, says Will Doyle, sales manager for the Irish market at distributor AgriArgo UK & Ireland.
“A combination of the heavy-duty transmission and back-end on a shorter wheelbase, the neat cab and the new high-performance engine make the Landini 6-H Series tractor a really interesting proposition.”, he noted.
“That’s especially so for livestock and mixed farms with a good workload for a tractor of this power who want something similar in size but more powerful and substantial than a 5-H Series tractor but one that’s not so big as the 6-C models.”, Will added.
What comes with them:
As standard, the new tractors are supplied with the Landini T-Tronic transmission and power shuttle. This serves up 36 forward speeds with three-step powershift for quick changes under full load.
Alternatively, buyers can opt for the simple Speed Four 12x12 or 16x16 creep configuration with power shuttle or add creep gears to the T-Tronic unit to obtain additional ratios and ultra-slow speeds for specialist equipment such as a precision planter.
Ground-drive pto can be added to the standard 540/1000rpm installation, with 540/540E and four-speed pto with economy gearing for both speeds also available as options.
A disc-braked front drive axle is standard to ensure true four-wheel braking when heavy loads are carried on the drawbar or 6 tonne rear linkage. The boosted brakes deliver max performance with relatively light pedal pressure.
Air-operated braking is available for trailed equipment towed from the standard hydraulic push-back pick-up hitch, and for maximum traction when things get slippery underfoot, a fully 100% locking front axle differential complements the rear axle unit and tyre sizes up to 38in.
In the roomy cab, operators get an air suspension seat, adjustable steering wheel, wash/wipe front and rear and an RDS radio with Bluetooth wireless connection and USB/SD media player all as standard.
Air conditioning and a transparent roof hatch complement the large windows, which includes a windscreen that extends right up to a slim header rail for maximum upwards visibility with a loader, and to complement the excellent all-round view from the tractor.
The new additions will all be on show at the upcoming Grass & Muck event at Gurteen Ag College on May 17th. Will you be there? ThatsFarming will be in attendance and you can tune into the event via our Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat accounts.
