Landini 7 Series upgraded

Production of an upgraded and realigned range of heavy-duty tractors has begun at Argo's assembly plant in Italy.

The five tractors - ranging from the 150/175hp Landini 7-180 to the 214/232hp Landini 7-235 - feature the latest-spec six-cylinder diesel engines from FPT Industrial, strategic upgrades for the Autopowershift transmission and an improved driver's cab.

With the Dual Power feature, growers, farmers and contractors should notice power and torque increases of as much as 20hp over previous models. The 7-180 has 150hp maximum standard output and 175hp with Dual Power. The 7-195 gets 165hp for operating draft equipment such as a plough or cultivator and 188hp to tow trailers and drive power harrows. The 7-205 has 175hp and 203hp.

Two large-frame tractors top out the line-up - the Landini 7-200 with 188hp for soil-engaging implements and 218hp when the power take-off is under load, and the 7-235 peaks at 214hp and 232hp. To utilise the enhanced engine performance, operators get a four-range, eight-step Autopowershift transmission, plus optional creep and mechanical lock to complement the parking brake.
