The Landini 6C Series which replaced the popular Powermondial in 2015 now comprises three models with the addition of a more powerful version with up to 140hp on tap.
Like the 111hp and 121hp models, the new Landini 6-140C gets extra power when travelling on the road or operating a pto-driven field implement like a muck spreader or power cultivator. Then, the 6-120C’s 111hp output goes to 121hp; the 6-130C’s climbs from 121hp to 133hp; and the 6-140C is elevated from 130hp to 140hp – a strong output for a tractor of this size.
To make best use of the performance potential and suit different applications, all three models can have four-speed pto – that’s with ‘power’ and ‘economy’ settings for both 540rpm and 1000rpm – and two levels of specification. Base models have 66-litre/min open centre gear pump hydraulics with an extra 30-litres/min for the steering; 34in rear tyres; and a 40kph T-Tronic 36×12 transmission with three-step powershift operated by a thumb switch on the gear lever.
A power shuttle with adjustable response is standard, giving fingertip control of forward and reverse selection. The higher-spec ‘LS’ version has a 110-litre/min closed centre hydraulics system that pumps only on demand; taller 38in tyres for added grip and floatation; and a choice of 40kph Eco or 50kph transmissions that get the tractor to its destination fast using less fuel.
The higher-spec version can also be equipped with hydraulic independent wishbone front axle suspension, along with mechanical cab suspension, which is also an option on the base version. The Master Class cab itself has a fresh interior design with well laid out controls and quality materials, a completely flat floor making it easy to get in and out, and an instrument panel that moves with the steering wheel when this is adjusted for angle and reach. Outside, 14 powerful halogen lamps illuminate the tractor’s surroundings for safe and secure operation out in the field or in and around buildings.
