Argo's Landini Rex named tractor of the year for the second time at Eima show

Argo Tractors' fruit and vineyard tractor Landini Rex has won the tractor of the year award at this year's Eima International show in Bologne, Italy.

The win is the second for the machine, which won the same award three years ago. In 2007, however, it was the Rex 85S model that took the honour. This time, the Rex 110F from a new and extended range has received the accolade.

The award was judged by a panel of farm machinery specialists working with publications in 20 countries across Europe.

The award is given to the entrant that delivers the best combination of performance and value for money, after a series of practical driving appraisals and a thorough assessment of the machines' design features.

The Rex 110F, with its 102hp Perkins four-cylinder engine, is representative of a range of specialist tractors designed and engineered by Argo Tractors and built in a state-of-the-art factory in Italy.

The machines are distributed in Britain through a network of sales and service dealers by AgriArgo UK.
