Landini's entry model makes its debut at Championships

The Landini 7-145 Series will debut at this week's National Ploughing Championships. This is currently the entry model in this six-cylinder range, which features the Iveco engine with Dual Power up to 156hp.

The 7-Series is fitted with a cast-iron chassis and suspended engine fitted, which results in less vibration and a lower noise level.

Landini importers D and S Machinery report that the 7-145 Series on display will be the Techno spec without front axle and cab suspension.

This Techno model features the auto-powershift transmission providing eight button-shift speeds in each range, with mechanical range shifting providing 32 speeds in total. The gear lever design is a H-pattern configuration equipped with a three-position thumb switch.

The closed-centre hydraulic system features a variable displacement pump with a 110-litre per minute flow rate.

Four spool valves are fitted; three are mechanical valves, while the fourth is electronically controlled. Standard features on this model also include auto PTO, headland management with radar and an 8,000kg rear lift capacity.

When it comes to Tier 4a engines, Landini have chosen similar solutions to other leading manufacturers.

Landini will now equip tractors with up to 110hp power rating with four-cylinder engines featuring externally cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) systems, while tractors with over 110hp power ratings will feature SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology.

Four-cylinder models from the 5-H and Powermondial Series (74hp to 121hp) will also be on display. The 5-H Series is available in Top and Techno versions.

Its new Top transmission packs a power shuttle and three-speed powershift, with a 4,350kg capacity mechanical rear lift and a telescopic pick-up hitch as part of the standard package.

The Techno version features a mechanical reverse shuttle and 24 plus 12 speed transmission.

Access to low buildings won't be problem with an overall height of just 101 inches and a one-piece bonnet to allow complete access for servicing and maintenance. Visitors to the National Ploughing Championships can view the Landini exhibit at Stand 204 Row G.
