Termed the 1 Series in blue Landini livery, or the X10 Series from McCormick, the new range provides up to 17 variations of transmission and cab configuration. It divides into five platforms or families of similar size, design and equipment.
The new tractors are the result of collaboration between Argo and South Korea's Daedong Engineering Co. "The models and variants chosen by the Argo Tractors team avoids unnecessary duplication while ensuring we have a comprehensive range suitable for different applications in farming, horticulture and grounds care," says AgriArgo UK general manager and sales director Ray Spinks.
The smaller models are powered with a variety of Daedong engines, while the larger 74hp and 91hp models are fitted with four-cylinder Perkins units. While the larger models are only available with a mechanical gearbox, smaller units have the option of a hydroshuttle transmission.
Where more weight, a long and wider stance and a bit more power are needed, the larger models, such as the 54hp Landini 1-55 or McCormick X10.55 should fit the bill, either as a mowing and general purpose tractor for grounds maintenance or for light field work.
Both ranges feature a specialist F model - the Landini 1-50F and McCormick 10.50F - designed for where access is at a premium. With 49hp from a 2.4-litre Daedong engine, the tractor is only 1.4m wide and features turn assist, making it useful in tight spaces.
