Lan­dini has brought back the Su­per 8860 util­ity tractor

Lan­dini has launched the up­graded Su­per 8860 util­ity tractor in prepa­ra­tion for the 60 Series’ 30th an­niver­sary.

In­tro­duced to Aus­tralia in 1988, the Lan­dini 60 Series tractor was known for its blue square-shaped bon­net and Aus­tralian re­li­a­bil­ity, and now it’s re­turned with mod­ern styling de­signed to ap­peal to both new and old Lan­dini ad­mir­ers.

Lan­dini says the 8860 is the only Euro­pean-made util­ity with roll-over-pro­tec­tion-struc­ture (ROPS) on the Aus­tralian mar­ket and is built for util­ity work, hay work and lift­ing.

“The orig­i­nal Lan­dini 60 Series was in­tro­duced in 1988, and you’ll still find thou­sands of them work­ing re­li­ably on Aus­tralian farms,” In­lon sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Gary Sur­man says.

“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,” he adds.

“The new Su­per 8860 has a rounded, curved bon­net de­sign for bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity and rounded mud­guards for a smooth ride through veg­e­ta­tion.”

The new Su­per 8860 has main­tained key fea­tures such as the 4.4-litre Perkins en­gine, which Lan­dini be­lieves is a fea­ture of the Su­per 8860’s dura­bil­ity.

“The leg­endary 4.4-litre Perkins en­gine has been a true per­former over many years in Aus­tralia,” Sur­man says. “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.”

The sim­ple con­trols Sur­man speaks of in­clude the con­ve­nient gearshift lever lo­cated on the right-hand side of the tractor.

“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,” Sur­man says. “For driver com­fort, there’s a sprung seat and a sound-proofed rub­ber floor mat.”

The Lan­dini 8860 comes with a two-year, 2400-hour fac­tory war­ranty for the ROPS sys­tem, and for a lim­ited time Lan­dini are of­fer­ing old Lan­dini 60 series own­ers the chance to up­grade to the new Su­per 8860 and re­ceive a free canopy.
