Landini 6 & 7 Series to make debut at Grass & Muck
The Landini 6 & 7 Series will make their Irish debut at this year’s FTMTA Grass & Muck event in Tipperary on Wednesday, May 14.
This year Landini says it will present its biggest ever collection of new models to the market, as the company’s major investment in product development begins to bear fruit.
D & S Machinery are the Irish Landini importers and have just launched new 6 & 7 Series which it says demonstrate Landini’s commitment to compete in the 130 to 200 hp sector.
The 6 & 7 Series has three models each; 143 to 166 HP (175 HP with Dual Power) 4-cylinder models (structural engines), and 165 to 188 HP (175 to 212 HP with Dual Power) 6-cylinder models with chassis-mounted engines.
Landini says the Dual Power provides additional power when needed during transport in 4th, 5th and 6th ranges. While during PTO operations Dual Power is available in all PTO speeds.
It outlines that these new ranges represent a new partnership between Landini and ZF Transmissions. For the first time, the T7200 Series ZF Transmission will be standard in the 6 & 7 Series. This “Roboshift” transmission is just one of the characteristics common to both ranges and has a hydraulic reverse shuttle with adjustable modulation.
Landini highlights that the 24 speeds provide a good working range, each range gear is push button shift and is executed by the exclusive robotized range shift mechanism. The multi-function lever and armrest control are all to hand for ease of operation. An “Auto Powershift -APS” operates in all ranges and the shift points can be set by the operator to suit the task in hand this also makes for easier driving in the field or during transport work on the roads. The creeper may be installed increasing the overall number of speeds to 40F + 40R.
All models in the new 6 & 7 Series feature the Load Sensing hydraulic system with 167 l/min. The steering and lubrication circuits are supplied from dedicated pumps. The manufacturer claims a lift capacity of 9,300 kg ensures these tractors can handle the equipment with ease and have ride control during transport cycles.
As a result of this new relationship with ZF Transmissions there is now 4-speed PTO as standard, while the electronically controlled front PTO is available on request with the front linkage.
Landini says all controls are arranged logically, while other features include the tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, with integrated instrument panel that remains in the correct position relative to the steering position selected.
It also says electronic engine speed memory plus Headland management functions can all be programmed as well. Passengers can ride in comfort on the new patented seat, which folds completely out of sight making it easier to get in and out of the tractor. Standard cabequipment also includes the radio with USB port, Bluetooth microphone and 4 loud speakers.
Landini claims that comfort and performance from features such as front axle and cab suspension make this a true contender in today’s market place, with 50kph ZF Transmission also an option across both ranges.
