The Landini stand will be celebrating at the 2014 EIMA International event in Bologna as it coincides with the 130th anniversary of the Emilia-based manufacturer's founding. And in honour of this anniversary the company from Fabbrico (Reggio Emilia) has great new products to showcase.

6L Series: the new replacement for the Landpower range of Landini motorized vehicles comes in three models (6-145L, 6-160L and 6-175L with 143, 163 and 176 hp, respectively), with a 4.5-litre, 16-valve engine that meets Tier 4 Interim emission standards using the innovative Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. Ideal for working in the open field – where the 270 litre tank ensures operational independence – 6L tractors have a rear-hinged bonnet that provides easy access to the engine compartment, while the "compass opening" system of the radiator facilitates cleaning and maintenance operations. The 6L Series comes with a mechanical reverse power shuttle or an optional hydraulic power shuttle with 3 shifting gears. It has excellent performance thanks to the hydraulic circuit that provides a total of 87 l/min for systems, in addition to 38 l/min for steering; up to 5 flow distributors may be used for the hydraulic circuit. Featuring an electro-hydraulic (standard) synchronized PTO clutch, the three new Landini models offer electronically-controlled rear lift capacity up to 8,400 kg and 3,500 kg front lift capacity (with optional PTO).

4 Series: the 4 Series is expanding with three new models – the 4-060, the 4-070 and 4-080 with rated power outputs of 61, 68 and 75 Hp, and maximum power outputs of 64, 69 and 76 Hp, respectively – definitely more compact than those of higher power (4-090, 4-100 and 4-105) and with a Deutz engine that meets Tier 4 Final emission standards and DOC oxidation catalyst (which does not require a DPF filter). Available with 12 + 12 gears with mechanical (or optional electro-hydraulic) reverse power shuttle equipped with a potentiometer to adjust the aggressiveness of the shuttle and an optional 16 + 16 creeper transmission, the new 4 Series models come in either platform or cab versions. These are extremely flexible machines that can adapt to a wide range of uses, from haymaking to front loader usage, and even up to working in large vineyards and orchards (the 12.4-36 rear tyres give the compacts an overall width of just 1.73 m). The system also includes a servo-assisted mechanical or electro-hydraulic PTO clutch, a 49 l/min + 28 l/min hydraulic circuit, and two flow distributors with the ability to add one rear and two side distributors. The mechanically-controlled rear lifter has a capacity of 2,700 kg, and can be extended to 3,400 kg with an additional cylinder. Finally, the front axle has an integral disc brake system and the four-wheel drive is, once again, electro-hydraulic. Beginning in 2015, the 4 Series will be further updated for the European market to include the versatile and affordable 4-075 model, powered by a Perkins Tier 3 engine.

5H Series: in line with Landini's new design concept, the four models in the 5H Series (which range from 88.5 to 113 Hp) have a newly redesigned cab that takes comfort and visibility to the next level. Outfitted in Italy by Argo Tractors, the cab features a flat floorboard and a four-post structure to ensure the utmost visibility for the operator. The telescopic steering column can be adjusted from within by means of a built-in instrument control panel which, along with the ergonomic controls, the new air-conditioning system and the low height of the tractor, make driving the 5H Series a pleasant experience even under the most demanding working conditions.
