SU­PER UP­GRADE

Over­haul for orig­i­nal Lan­dini

Dairy News Australia - - FRONT PAGE -

FARM­ERS WHO owned an orig­i­nal Lan­dini 60 Series util­ity trac­tor are about to have their dreams come true with the launch of the up­graded Su­per 8860. The mod­ern styling and im­proved er­gonomics and con­trols will ap­peal to both old and new Lan­dini en­thu­si­asts. ‘The orig­i­nal Lan­dini 60 Series was in­tro­duced in 1988, and you’ll still find thou­sands of them work­ing re­li­ably on Aus­tralian farms,’ said In­lon Sales & Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, Gary Sur­man. ‘As we ap­proach the 30 year an­niver­sary of the 60 Series, Lan­dini has made the Su­per even bet­ter. “Many farm­ers will re­mem­ber the square shaped bon­net of the old model. “The new Su­per 8860 has a rounded, curved bon­net de­sign for bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity and rounded mud­guards for a smooth ride through veg­e­ta­tion. “Er­gonom­i­cally, the new 8860 has it all. The gearshift lever on the right-hand side and the range lever on the left are easy to reach, while the shut­tle lever ad­ja­cent to the steer­ing wheel makes for quick shift­ing from for­ward to re­verse. “For driver com­fort, there’s a sprung seat and a sound-proofed rub­ber floor mat.” The Su­per 8860 trac­tor has re­tained the fea­tures that lie be­hind its longevity. “The 4.4-litre Perkins en­gine has been a true per­former over many years in Aus­tralia,’ Gary said. “The horse­power, sta­bil­ity, high-lift ca­pac­ity and 3-tonne weight mean the 8860 can han­dle heavy duty ap­pli­ca­tions, while the sim­ple con­trols make it easy to op­er­ate.” Gary said the Ital­ian-built Su­per 8860 is the only Euro­pean-made util­ity ROPS on the Aus­tralian mar­ket,. “It’s built for util­ity work, hay work, bale lift­ing and a lot more. “Safety and peace of mind come as stan­dard with a two-post Roll Over Pro­tec­tion Struc­ture (ROPS) and a 2 year / 2400 hour fac­tory war­ranty. For a lim­ited time, farm­ers in Queens­land, NSW, Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia can trade in their old Lan­dini 60 series to up­grade to a new Su­per 8860 and re­ceive a free Gen­uine Fac­tory Canopy.
