A brand new range of Landini tractors has been launched to Scotland by a range of dealers across the country.
According to Landini, the new 4 Series tractor range is set to become a firm favourite with stockmen and women.
“The new range joins the current line-up below the new 5-D and 5-H series tractors to give farmers a choice of size, power, comfort and features for all applications,” said AgriArgo general manager and sales director Ray Spinks.
The tractors, which feature new transmission by Landini manufacturer Argo Tractors, will be available at first with maximum power outputs of 90hp, 99hp and 107hp.
The first offering features a basic 40kph specification with 12 speeds forward and reverse, a synchro shuttle and dry clutch two-speed pto.
Alternatively, farmers can opt for a higher spec package which features 24 speeds, HiLo push button splitter and overdrive gearing for reduced, more economical revs when running at the 40kph top speed.
Landini said there was also a smooth-shifting power shuttle and hydraulically engaged two-speed pto available with this package, with the option to upgrade the pto to include a ground-drive option.
There is also a creep gearbox option, which adds another three configurations to the five core set-ups, providing drivers with 16 or 32 speeds that include low ratios for operating precision seeders and other specialist kit.
The 4 Series tractors also feature a new front axle with a 100% locking differential for maximum traction, and the option to include integral disc brakes to allow secure all-wheel braking.
In the hydraulics department, two choices are on offer – the base 44-litres a minute system for routine applications, and the 57-litres a minute Hi-Flow upgrade for working the tractor with a loader and other high-demand implements.
Both options feature a 32-litres a minute pump for the steering system to ensure hydraulic oil is never in short supply.
In addition, the standard 2,900kg rear linkage lift capacity can be upgraded to 3,300kg with assister rams, operated by either mechanical or electrical controls.
While, twin mid-vales and a joystick are available to make it easy to install and operate a loader or the new front linkage option.
Landini said that despite having a low overall height – 2.52 metres on 30 inch tyres and 2.57 metres on 34 inche tyres – the new cab in the 4 Series has a flat floor and ample headroom thanks to an ultra-slim roof panel.
This has been made possible with the use of a novel air conditioning system, which filters air through the rear pillars rather than the roof.
All three of the new models in the range are powered by a newly developed 3.6 litre four-cylinder Deutz engine.
According to Landini, at rated engine speed outputs are 85hp, 95hp and 102hp. However these peak at 90hp, 99hp and 107hp when the ‘power bulge’ characteristics of the engine kick in.
Prices start at £37,114 for a 90hp 4-090 and climb to £39,513 for the 107hp 4-105 with base specification.
