Landini show new cab for Landpower tractors
"The lack of ‘B’ posts makes a big difference to visibility both left and right, and is especially useful when operating a hedge cutter or when working in and around buildings" he said.
The Landini is one of only a few six-cylinder tractors with power outputs starting at less than 140hp.
It also retains the attractiveness to many operators of an engine with mechanical fuel injection, a simple transmission with synchro shuttle, and mechanical operation of the spool valves and three-point linkage.
Four power outputs are available from the 6.7-litre engine built to Landini specification by FPT Industrial – 117hp, 133hp, 141hp and 158hp.
Power and torque are channelled through an ARGO Tractors Speed Six transmission with six gears and three ranges. A creep gear fitted as standard doubles the number of ratios to 36x36 and provides the very slow speeds needed for specialist planting and drainage tasks.
In the new cab, the range lever has been made a little longer to make it easier to reach as part of a revamp of the control layout.
Rocker switches for work lights and windscreen wipers are now grouped together on the right-hand console, in line with the joystick and levers used to operate up to five spool valves, including three double-acting units. With the optional diverters also installed, the valves can operate up to seven loader and/ or implement functions.
A push-back hydraulic pick-up hitch is standard to make coupling to a trailer, spreader or tanker easier and with the new cab, the operator also has the added convenience of a new pto control.
"The power take-off drive has been upgraded with a hydraulic clutch replacing the manually-operated dry plate unit for smooth uptake of drive and greater durability," notes Paul Wade.
The Master Class cab has more room for stowage of tools and equipment around the driver’s seat, plus a storage bin on the left-hand fender and a compartment on the right-hand side for documents and small tools and other items.
The cab is wider overall but especially at the front where there is now room for a passenger seat – and enough floor space for the driver’s dog to ride in comfort!
