Landini's new 5 Series, with versatility in mind

Three models powered by 3.6 litre FPT F36 Stage V Turbo Intercooler Common Rail engines (with 4 cylinders and 16 valves) from 95 to 115 horsepower, equipped with a renewed hydraulic system designed to offer top-level performance and a cab with new ergonomic controls and comfort thanks to the mechanical suspension option. These are the new Landini 5 Series tractors, designed for utility use, but able to give their best both in open field and in farm structures thanks to their outstanding versatility.

The transmission is versatile, available in eight different configurations - from the Speed Four 12 AV + 12 RM with mechanical reverse shuttle to the T-Tronic 48 AV + 16 RM with Hi-Medium-Low, hydraulic reverse shuttle and Super Reducer - to improve the efficiency of the tractor in terms of power transmitted to the wheels and at the same time reduce fuel consumption (the Engine Memo Switch function, for example, stores and recalls the ideal engine speed for the implement in use). Another plus of the 5 Series is the Landini axles. Already prized for their stability and reliability, they are now available with the new suspended axle option, which better handles uneven terrain, while the Twin Lock system allows automatic and simultaneous locking of differentials and dual traction. On the 5 Series, the hydraulic circuit has also been renewed, and now has a flow rate of up to 82 l/min for services and 32 for steering, while 35 litres are extractable to operate tipping trailers. Six spool valves are available: three mechanically controlled, one electrically controlled and two optional ventral valves for front lift and front loader that can be combined. There are four types of spool valves (standard, kick-out, floating and hydraulic motor) with versatile and customisable configurations; the optional flow selector can manage up to seven hydraulic utilities.

Landini's utilities feature different types of lifts: mechanical, mechanical with ELS (Ergonomic Lift System), which speeds up headland manoeuvres and increases productivity, and electronic, which allows the operator to repeat operations and find positions again to ensure the highest possible precision. The advantages of the electronic lift include the function to compensate for implement pitching during road transport. The PTO, which is gradually engaged by the hydraulically controlled clutch (which ensures smooth engagement and avoids abrupt shaft starts), has two speeds, which become four on request with the HML transmission (540/540E/1000/1000E rpm). In addition, to make hitching implements easier, the PTO has remote controls on the mudguards, while the Auto PTO function, available with the electronic power lift, automatically engages and disengages the PTO when the power lift is operated during headland turns. Versatility is also the hallmark of Landini's L20 front loaders, whose chassis has been designed to avoid reducing ground clearance, thus protecting crops. The L20s are controlled through an ergonomic joystick, designed - in turn - to easily manage the various controls (high/low, load/unload; third and fourth functions; Hi-Lo and HML transmission).

Finally, it should be noted that with the 5-120 Dynamic model, the new 5 Series is in the running in the Best Utility category for the title of Tractor of the Year 2020, whose awards ceremony will take place in October at EIMA International.
