Passion for innovation has always been a typical feature of Landini brand and also characterises the Rex3 F Series, the range of tractors specialised in vineyard and orchard work. The new version now features the Stage V engine and is characterised by innovative technological solutions, an improved bonnet and the possibility to install a Low Profile cab. Such a restyling has allowed the specialised Landini to be nominated for the prestigious award Tractor of the Year 2021, in the “best of specialized” category.
The Rex3 F line up features three different powers for its 4-cylinder, 2.5-litre Kohler engine, namely 55, 68 and 75 hp, with torque reserves of 50%, 45% and 32% respectively.
Engine RPM management is provided by the Engine Memo Switch that allows you to store and quickly recall settings when passing from one activity to another. Its 50-litre diesel tank allows full operation over a working day.
The winning features of the new Rex3 F Series are undoubtedly its compact dimensions: wheelbase 1,950mm; minimum ground clearance 213mm; external width from 1,350mm to 1,617mm; minimum height of the steering wheel from the ground on the platform version 1,256mm; weight without ballast 2,200kg.
But the Rex3 F Series acquires its most obvious competitive advantage in versatility. This starts from the Low Profile cab option – Best in Class in the conventional category – which has a 1.16m wide single-shell structure at the base being reduced to 0.86m at roof level, for a minimum overall height from the ground of 1.87m, while ensuring respect for the foliage and comfort for the operator. This last factor becomes evident when looking at the wide door opening for easier accessibility, the tilting steering wheel, the multifunction dashboard, the absence of levers on the central tunnel, the air conditioning circuit and the optional rear camera. The cab offers maximum visibility in lateral operations, on sloping terrain and in greenhouse crops. Handling and ease of use are also found in the factory-fitted option of the front hitch, with a maximum capacity of 1,000kg, and in the under-cab chassis geometry specifically designed for the installation of various central equipment.
Designed for professionals working in vineyards and orchards, the hydraulic circuit delivers 30 litres/min for steering and 50 litres/min for control valves, up to 3 with the possibility to bring one outlet also at the front, in addition to supporting the rear hydraulic hitch featuring mechanical control and ELS (Ergonomic Lift System), with anti-dumping system and a capacity of an improved 2,700kg.
Versatility and comfort make it a tractor built around the operator’s needs: the driveline operates by mechanical reverse shuttle and offers, with creeper, 16 forward and 16 reverse gears in a speed range from 0.4 to 40km/h. The front axle with electro-hydraulic engagement is produced in Argo Tractors plants and offers a steering angle of 55°. The 20-inch rear wheels (for GE version) and 24-inch rear wheels (for F versions) are equipped with Waffle-type rims designed to minimise vibration, thus maximising comfort when travelling on the road with equipment in tow, also thanks to the maximum allowed weight of 4,000kg.
Such an overview, being already rich in specifications, is completed by its perfect compatibility with Landini’s fleet management protocol.
The Rex3 F Series can in fact be fitted with Landini Fleet Management system, which guarantees telemetry data, remote diagnostics, efficient integration with the after-sales system, a direct connection with the service department and a reduction in downtime for maintenance, as well as a preferential lane for the operator to maximise farm operativeness.
