From 24th to 28th February, Paris will be hosting SIMA, the biennial event dedicated to agriculture and farm machinery.
Landini’s impressive exhibition line-up will represent its range of specialised tractors, featuring REX 4 Model Year 2019, fresh from its success at EIMA 2018. Sporting an original metallic blue livery and matt black wheel rims, Landini REX 4 has won the favour of both the public and experts, among other things when it was selected as a finalist for the Tractor of the Year Award 2019 in category “Best of Specialized”. It won the Technical Innovation Award at EIMA thanks to its Advanced Driving System, a project that enhances comfort so that operators can focus on the job ahead rather than on driving the vehicle. This innovative hybrid driver assist system uses cutting-edge mechatronic solutions to assist operators in manoeuvring both in field and road operations, that makes steering stiffer as a function of speed and causes the wheels to return to the central position automatically after a turn. The ADS also guarantees full connection to satellite guidance, memorisation and control of wheel positions during slope and in-furrow operation, and offsets the effects of external stresses on steering accuracy. In addition, the operator can manage the functions of the machinery under many conditions, as the configuration of the one monitor in the cabin automatically changes according to the functions used.
REX 4 is available in 6 models in version F and in the newly added version S, featuring a narrower cab to facilitate operation between rows of wide-crowned trees, whereas cab versions GT and V come in 5 different models. Power outputs range from 70 up to 112 hp, with 2.9-litre Deutz AG engines equipped with EGR & DOC exhaust gas treatment system with no DPF and regeneration. The Engine Memo Switch is standard equipment and adds convenience in operations that require a specific engine rpm to be stored and recalled.
The version with suspended axle is equipped with front disc brakes and electro- hydraulic diff-lock for guaranteed efficiency. The axle offers up to 55° steering angle to facilitate manoeuvring in all terrain conditions.
Transmissions feature a mechanical or hydraulic reverse shuttle and 4 gears with 3 ranges, specification can also include: Hi-Lo and High-Medium-Low, as well as the creeper. The broad range of power take-off options include a mechanical and a hydraulic version, depending on the reverse shuttle, and two or four speeds (540, 540 Eco, 1000 and 1000 Eco).
The hydraulic system is available with double pump for 55+30-litre/min. capacity (60+30 litre/min. in the GT version) or triple pump for 25+55+30 litre/min capacity. Optional equipment includes control valves (up to 7), flow selector and diverter valve, and the controls can be mechanical and/or electro-hydraulic. Operation efficiency can be optimised thanks to a multi-function all-in-one joystick controlling hydraulic characteristics, electronic management of daily hours of operation, field and service registers by the Landini Fleet Management protocol, as well as by the availability of real-time remote diagnosis.
The cabins may also be specified with the high tech CAT 4 protection: a new pressurisation system that insulates the operator’s area and protects it from harmful substances during pesticide application. The system operates on the inputs from an on-board sensor that monitors internal pressure and the efficiency of the activated charcoal filters.
Agile and compact – Landini Series 2
Versatility and compact design make Landini Series 2 ideal for use in orchards/vineyards, greenhouse horticulture, open-field and municipal operations. The range includes three models with 44, 48 and 51hp power outputs delivered by Yanmar TNV Naturally Aspirated and Turbo-Charged 4-cylinder engines.
The basic transmission (12FW+12RV) can be supplemented with creeper at request to achieve 16FW+16RV total ratios. In line with the new construction standards, the instrumentation is simple and intuitive.
The contemporary 4-post cab with the ergonomic controls provides good vision for easy handling. Operator comfort is enhanced by an optional powerful air conditioning system.
Series 2 is available in the standard version and in a new “GE” (platform-only) configuration whose rear final drives and platform have been designed specifically to lower platform height by 95mm, for guaranteed performance in spaces with limited height and width, such as vineyards using trellis system or in greenhouses. The 48 l/min hydraulic pump is ideal to operate the rear lift with 1,200 kg capacity, 2 or 3 rear control valves and an optional 400 kg front lift available at request.
Landini Series 4, ultimate versatility
The unique features of Landini Series 4 in terms of power, compact design and versatility, guarantee excellent productivity in many different applications, both in open-field and row-crop operations.
The series features six models: 4-095, 4-100 and 4-110 feature 4-cylinder turbo- charged 3.6-litre Common Rail Deutz Tier 4 Interim engines with 90, 99 and 107 hp, as well as three more models (4-070 / 4-080 / 4-090) with 69, 75 and 88 hp, equipped with 2.9-litre Deutz Tier 4 final engines.
Landini Series 4 uses an Argo Tractors transmission with epicyclic final drives, front axle with optional integral braking system and electro-hydraulic 4wd engagement. Wheelbase is 2,230 mm on the three high-power models, 2,100 mm on the three entry-level models. The hydraulic system uses a double pump with 28+49 l/min capacity in the entry-level models and offers up to 32+57 l/min capacity for the three high-power models. Up to 5 remote control valves can be configured, including 3 rear valves and 2 mid mounted valves controlled by a joystick, to operate the front lift or a front loader. 2-speed PTO can be synchronised with forward speed.
The versatile base transmission (Speed Four) comes with 4 synchronised gears with three mechanical speed ranges to offer 12FW+12RV. Also available is the Power Four transmission with HI-LO and electro-hydraulic reverse shuttle, offering a total of 24+24 gears and 40 km/h at 1900 engine rpm, for greater fuel economy. When a creeper is installed, gears increase to 32FW+32RV and minimum speed is 300 m/h.
The compact size guarantees a minimum width of 1.75 m, making Series 4 also ideal for specialised operations.
Landini Series 4D, 2 and 4 wheel drive, available in platform and cab versions. All 4-070D, 4-080D and 4-090D models feature Deutz Tier 4 Final engines with a 2.9-litre displacement and maximum power outputs of 70, 75 and 88 HP.
