Landini Tractor Dealers Revved Up for the Future
The Landini Tractor Dealer Conference was held recently in the picturesque Hunter Valley, bringing together 40 representatives from across the country for the launch of five new tractor models.
Jim Jardim, Managing Director of Inlon, presented data on the growth of Landini throughout 2017, and dealers responded with feedback that will help guide the future of Landini.
Landini is a traditional Italian manufacturer of over 130 years with a great heritage and a reputation as a world leader in specialist tractors. The new models add to an already impressive range of vineyard, orchard, high-clearance row-crop vegetable tractors and great value, durable utility farm tractors.
The new 4-series was released in two configurations: a vineyard/orchard model and a utility farm tractor with integrated loader joystick, instructor seat and high-visibility roof. The modern, spacious cabin has the latest curved roof design allowing for outstanding visibility when working with a front-end loader.
The new generation Rex 4 vineyard/orchard tractor features a Tier 4 engine delivering a new benchmark in torque and torque backup. The Electronic Engine RPM Control extracts maximum engine performance resulting in accurately maintained PTO speed under varying load. The innovative flat floor and wide opening door offer easy cabin accessibility.
The Rex 90F is a great value vineyard/orchard tractor with its 4.4-litre English Perkins engine delivering class leading torque and torque backup.
Its 30/30 speed transmission offers 14 speeds in the critical 3km/h to 10km/h working range. The front disc brakes give better safety and control when towing full spray tanks.
Landini’s high clearance models are durable row-crop tractors ideal for vegetable growers. Inlon has recently extended the range with the Powerfarm 110 High Clearance Hydraulic Power Shuttle (RPS) version in CAB and ROPS. Farms that hire backpackers and seasonal workers will benefit from the simple RPS operation.
In the 100-horsepower segment, the economical tractor-loader package is a favourite, but many tractors fall short of true versatility for hay, planting, cultivation, towing and other farm jobs. This is where the new Landini Powerfarm 110 RPS comes into its own. It’s the ultimate combination of loader tractor and general farm tractor for field work. The Power-shuttle and Hi-Lo Power-shift transmission offers 32/16 speeds, including creeper speeds, for the versatility to tackle a wide range of field work and utilise the 416Nm to the max.
Following strong sales growth in 2017, the Landini dealer network is revved up for the year ahead. The five new tractor models demonstrate Landini’s strength in both its specialist tractors and the good value/high feature farm tractor range, which has been lacking in Australia.
