THE LANDINI ORCHID
The quality of vineyard and orchard cultivations depends on the use of extremely specialized machines, ones that are able to meet all the specific requirements of these types of crops. This is why Landini has developed the innovative Rex series: a range of tractors exclusively dedicated to vineyards and orchards, and designed paying special attention to the suggestions that came from farmers. Available in the V version for vineyards and the S version for narrow orchards, this ultra-compact tractor range has been redesigned to offer improved gearbox controls, a new steering wheel with extra tilt adjustment and a new rounded hood with integrated rectangular headlights.
The REX V/S tractors are powered by a new, environment friendly Perkins 1104D 4-cylinder turbo engine that delivers 83 HP (ISO rating), while providing low emission levels in accordance with the Tier 3 standards. Specially developed for farming applications, this new engine incorporates state-of-the-art solutions designed to optimize the air-fuel mixture, thereby improving combustion and engine efficiency. Higher horsepower and torque with lower operating costs are thus achieved. The new, fully opening tilt-up hood provides easy access to the engine compartment for routine service and maintenance.
SIDE GEAR AND REVERSE SHUTTLE LEVERS FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT
The gear and reverse shuttle levers are located on the driver’s side in ergonomic position and allow 24 FWD + 12 REV speeds to be selected in complete comfort. The reverse shuttle lever allows both reversing all gears of the basic transmission and activating the overdrive which enables a maximum speed of 25 mph (40 kph) to be achieved. The transmission can be optionally integrated with a creeper to obtain a total range of 32 FWD + 16 REV speeds.
