New additions have been made to the Landini, Basic-spec 4-D Series, not even a year after its introduction to the markets.
The new range aims to meet the needs of growers and livestock farms wanting a simple workhorse tractor for routine jobs such as light cultivations, haymaking and yard scraping.
The 4-D tractors are now available with a cab, in open platform guise to begin with.
Lower Price: Specifications are kept as simple as possible with few frills, which not only helps keep the price down but also means owners are not buying features they are unlikely to use.
Practical benefits: The open platform and cab floor and side panels can be washed down without fear of harming electrical installations and the like.
Extremely durable: It is built to perform with durability and comes with the reliability achieved by using thoroughly modern components and assemblies.
More Power: New 2.9-litre Deutz four-cylinder engine nestles under the hood to provide power outputs of 68hp, 75hp and 88hp, all driving through an Argo Tractors fully mechanical transmission.
Operation: This is operated by floor mounted gear levers, including the synchro forward-reverse selector to the left of the driver.
Speed: With three ranges and four speeds providing a 12x12 speed configuration, the standard set-up will be sufficient for most applications but a creep ‘box option is also available if an additional set of four ultra-low ratios is needed for specialist applications.
Two versions: There are two- and four-wheel drive versions, the latter having the refinement of electro-hydraulic engagement of the front axle drive.
Ground drive pto comes as standard: It is standard regardless of whether the tractor is equipped with 540rpm, 540/540E or 540/1000rpm power take-off.
Simple lever controls: The rear three-point linkage rated at 3400kg is operated by simple lever controls, with the option of the Landini Ergonomic Lift System, which provides a one-shot control for lifting and lowering the hitch arms.
Great stability: A 2.1m wheelbase ensures good stability, while the wheels and axles can be configured to get the tractor down to no more than 1.67m wide for easy access to passages in cubicle sheds and other buildings.
