It will enter into production in June 2021 and be called MISTRAL2, taking and updating the name of the outstanding Landini series of compact tractors. The new range features an extensive revolution engine wise, moving from the Yanmar Tier 3 to the Kohler Stage V compliant engine.
The 1.9 litre, 3-cylinder, turbo aftercooled engine delivers, for the MISTRAL 2-055 and 2-060 models, maximum outputs of 49 and 57 Hp (ISO) respectively with a maximum torque of 180 and 200 Nm already available at 1200 rpm, which places MISTRAL2 as the Best in Class in its category.
A transition made possible by the design skills and expertise of Argo Tractors engineers, who have managed to maintain the height of the bonnet from the ground, by adopting an exhaust gas treatment system at the side of the bonnet, whilst guaranteeing the operator excellent visibility. This solution represents an irrefutable competitive advantage for Landini Mistral2, making this tractor suitable not only for typical specialised farming applications, but also for municipality work, such as grounds maintenance of public parks and general landscaping tasks.
The new range benefits from the renewed Landini family feeling, already introduced in the high and medium power ranges, whilst providing effective solutions in terms of agility, compactness and environmental sustainability. An important new feature is the availability of the Engine Memo Switch that allows you to save engine rpms and to quickly retrieve them with a practical button on the right-hand console.
Landini Mistral2 is available in two configurations: Standard, available for the platform or cab versions, and GE (Ground Effect), only for the platform version which, with a “lowered” set-up achieved thanks to the use of dedicated rear reduction gears and a front axle, which further reduces the overall height from the ground of the bonnet and mudguards, making it an excellent choice for working under polytunnels.
The mechanical power shuttle transmission is available in 12/12 or 16/16 versions if equipped with creeper, with a minimum speed of 220m/h.
The FOPS cab boasts a modern and functional design, and is mounted on silent blocks that isolate it from noise and vibration. Comfort features also include air conditioning, flip-up front window and a radio. The controls are ergonomic and user-friendly for the operator and the 4-upright structure offers excellent visibility.
The main features of the series are completed by a 40 litre fuel tank capacity, an increased hydraulic flow rate of 35 litres/minute for the rear lift and services and the dedicated 20 litre/minute steering pump.
The category one three-point hitch rear lift system can lift up to 1200kg and the front lift system, optional with or without a 1,000 rpm PTO, up to 400kg, while there are 3 additional spool valves available (2 standard valves and 1 optional floating valve). The controls are installed on the new right-hand console. The rear mechanical PTO is available in two different speeds 540 and 540E rpm and synchronised forward speed. The dual traction front axle has an electro-hydraulic engaging “Hydralock” differential lock in both the STD and GE versions.
Landini Mistral2 Stage V presents a new electronic instrument panel, derived from the Landini REX4 family and includes useful digital information such as diagnostics and signals, maintenance intervals, data on the work carried out and fuel consumption.
The tractor weighs just 1780kg and has a maximum permissible mass of 3050kg, while the wheelbase of just 1790 mm and the minimum width of 1260mm guarantee the best compactness in its category, with rear tires available in two versions, 20” and 24” which allow the GE version to maintain bonnet heights from the ground of 1131mm and 1206mm respectively (on the Standard version these measurements become 1230mm and 1301mm).
It is also possible to add one of the extended warranty options (up to 48 months or 5,000 hours) to the package, as well as the scheduled maintenance option, which can be tailored to meet the customer’s needs.
Landini Mistral2 can be equipped with the “Landini Fleet Management” telematics monitoring system, designed to monitor the efficiency of the work site in terms of fuel consumption, working hours and scheduled maintenance. The system operates through a dedicated portal that allows the owner to maximise the activity of the tractors and monitor their operating costs.
