- Four-cylinder 2.5-litre Mitsubishi engine with 57hp output

- Cab with air conditioning standard equipment
The Landini 6544 'large compact' tractor, which will be launched to the groundscare sector at the SALTEX show, has features and a base specification more often seen on higher horsepower models.
The newcomer is being introduced to complement the existing Compact 40-series models from 28hp to 47hp and bridge the gap to the full size Landini Powerfarm utility model.
"I think this tractor will have widespread appeal for groundscare work," says Adrian Winnett of Landini UK. "The standard specification for a tractor of this size is excellent and it's well put together."
The Landini 6544's 2.5-litre Mitsubishi four-cylinder engine develops 57hp and drives through a 32x16 synchro-shuttle transmission with creep ratios included as standard.
For operating implements there is a three-speed pto system that provides 540rpm at standard engine rpm or at a slower speed for greater fuel economy. The 1000rpm setting is suited to more demanding equipment and in all cases the system is engaged at the flick of a switch thanks to the electro-hydraulic control.
Twin double-acting remote valves ensure the tractor has no problem operating a wide range of implements and with 1750kg of implement lift available, it can handle plenty of different kit too - especially since a big tractor's combination of draft, position and mix settings are available to suit different equipment and tasks. There is even a convenient one-shot lift lever and release button for quick raising and lowering of implements for headland turns.
The tractor comes as standard with a spacious air conditioned driver's cab, hydrostatic twin-ram steering with 55deg steer angle on the portal front axle, and a steering column that is adjustable for rake to help the driver get comfortable.
