A new addition to the Landini tractor range is aimed at farmers wanting a relatively low,
compact and highly manoeuvrable machine with good pulling performance for its size.
The Landini 6-H Series comes hot off the assembly
lines at the Argo Tractors factory complex in northern
Italy, where more than 70 per cent by value of Landini
models is manufactured, including front axles, cabs and
The new 6-H Series tractors slot into the 44hp to 225hp
Landini line-up mid-way, with three power outputs of
110hp, 119hp and 126hp.
They therefore slot in between the new 99-113hp Landini
5 Series tractors, which use the same spacious but low-
profile cab, and the established 114-140hp Landini 6-C
Series tractors, which share their proven heavier-duty
transmission with the newcomers.
Together with a compact 3.6-litre four-cylinder engine,
this combination of assemblies creates an appealing
package, according to Will Doyle, Argo Tractors sales
manager in Ireland: "A combination of the heavy-duty
transmission and back-end on a shorter wheelbase,
the neat cab and the new high-performance engine
make the Landini 6-H Series tractor a really interesting
"That's especially so for livestock and mixed farms
with a good workload for a tractor of this power who
want something similar in size but more powerful and
substantial than the 5-H Series or similar tractors they
operate now, but one that's not so big as the 6-C."
Power and torque characteristics, as well as fuel economy,
benefit from using one of the newest engines from
Deutz, which employs urea injection (SCR) and a diesel
oxidation catalyst (DOC) to comply with European Stage
IV / US Tier 4 Final emissions rules.
These measures, together with efficient combustion in
the cylinders, means there is no need for a DPF `soot'
filter to remove particulates, and which normally needs an
occasional fuel-burn to remove deposits.
Torque back-up is good, with peak torque of 440 to
500Nm generated at 1600rpm some way down from the
2200rpm rated speed.
As standard, the new tractors are supplied with the
Landini T-Tronic transmission and power shuttle, which
serves up 36 forward speeds and three-step powershift for
quick changes under full load.
Alternatively, buyers can opt for the simple Speed Four
12x12 or 16x16 creep configuration with power shuttle, or
