A new line of tractors that combine the best features of Landini ‘mechanical’ and ‘electronic’ models has been introduced through the company’s dealers in Scotland.
The new ‘Active’ models join the Landini line-up between the four-cylinder 6L Series and full-spec Dynamic versions of the four-cylinder Landini 6 Series and six-cylinder 7 Series.
While the advanced Dynamic models come with a seat-mounted control console, electric spool valves, full headland management and 9300kg rear three-point linkage, the ‘Active’ versions have fewer electronic features to suit farmers and others wanting a simpler but still very capable tractor.
In the Landini 7 Series, Active specification is available on the 165hp 7-175 Roboshift with +10hp boost for pto and transport applications, and on a new addition to the range, the 7-160 Roboshift.
With 152hp at rated speed and 160hp max output, this new model caters for operators wanting a tractor at this power level with a six-cylinder engine installed in a cast chassis for extra stability with heavy implements.
In the four-cylinder Landini 6 Series, there are three Active models with maximum power outputs of 143hp, 160hp and 166hp, the latter boosting to 176hp for pto and transport work.
“With the new Active specification, the Landini range from 143-175hp provides a greater choice of specifications to meet different needs, preferences and budgets,” says Ray Spinks, general manager and sales director at distributor AgriAgro UK. “Go for the 6L if something capable but basic suits your needs; choose the 6/7 Series Dynamic for top specification; or opt for the new 6/7 Series Active for something in between.”
Semi- and fully auto modes for the Roboshift transmission can be used for optimum hands-free speed control in field and road applications, and the four-speed pto provides ‘power’ and ‘economy’ gearing for 540 and 1000rpm shaft speeds.
The new models are available from AgriArgo’s Landini nationwide network of sales, parts and service dealers.
