Eima International 2022 (Bologna, Italy, 09-13 November) will mark the launch of Argo Tractors’ renewed Landini SUPER range, designed for LRC (Low Regulated Countries) markets. The relentless research and development activity has allowed the Italian industrial group based in Fabbrico (Reggio Emilia) to take a significant step forward in the production of tractors that are increasingly at the forefront in terms of innovation, guaranteeing new functions and performance levels, while at the same time improving the design, with European style.
The Landini SUPER range is available in cab, platform and high clearance versions.
Both versions retain the engine already used in the previous series: the 4.4 L Perkins 1104, which was already acclaimed for its extreme reliability and available in Tier 0 and Tier 3 exhaust emission ratings. Engine power has also increased, from the previous 75hp – 102hp range to the current 82hp – 111hp. The series features two aspirated engine versions (model 85 and 95, platform only), two turbocharged versions (models 90 and 115 also with cab) and three aftercooled versions (models 100, 110 and 120 also with cab).
The strong point of the series is the transmission, available with a 12+12 Synchro Shuttle dry clutch for 30km/h or 16+16 (with Creeper and minimum speed of 360 metres per hour to increase versatility on specific jobs) and with a 12+12 Reverse Power Shuttle (wet Clutch) with engagement modulation and de-clutch (a button on the gear lever that bypasses the need to use the clutch pedal). The transmissions allow maximum operability in all working conditions.
Fuel tank capacities reach 95 litres (platform and high clearance versions), 100 litres in standard models with cab.
The hydraulic flow rate to the services (hitch and rear spool valves) is 54 litres/min, while as much as 30 litres/min are available at the steering pump for the version with hydraulic reverse shuttle (24 l/min for mechanical reverse shuttle). An optimised oil filtration system ensures circuit maintenance. Cab versions offer 2 to 4 rear spool valves, while 1 or 2 are available for platform versions.
The standard lifting capacity ranges from 3,000 to 4,500 kilograms (with additional assist cylinders) in the low power, platform and high clearance versions, while it reaches 5,080 kilograms in the high-power models (115, 110 and 120). The hitch with ELS (Ergonomic Lift System) control and the air-suspension seat, both of which are optional on cab models, as well as the factory-fitted L20 front loader, add value to the product range and fully meet the needs of specific markets. The independent PTO has 2 speeds, 540/1000 rpm or 540/540E, with Ground Speed PTO available as an option.
The front axles are available in 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive in low power and in platform and high clearance versions (with optional paddy field seals) and only in 4-wheel drive (with optional Hydralock system) for higher powers. The rear differential lock is available with mechanical or electro-hydraulic engagement.
Special attention has been paid to the design, with an updated look that echoes the modern Landini family feeling. Improvements in the cab include excellent soundproofing and suspended brake/clutch pedals that reduce the amount of dirt and vibrations entering the cab, improving operator comfort. The main novelty for the operator’s area is the introduction of the reverse power shuttle control lever and a new dashboard.
