Landini's nationwide network of retail sales and service dealers have a new range of power-efficient compact tractors for anyone needing to keep grass in trim, apply fertilisers to fine turf or perform any of a host of groundscare operations.

The Landini Compact 40 Series will initially comprise four variants - a 28hp machine with a choice of mechanical or hydrostatic transmissions and a larger hydrostatic drive version with 41hp and 47hp engine outputs.

"These tractors, which replace our Mistral 'America' compacts, maintain our range of products for groundscare operations," points out Adrian Winnett, Landini UK sales manager. "Together with the 35-54hp Mistral mechanical drive compacts, the heavy-duty 59-99hp Rex and the 68-99hp Alpine and Powerfarm full-size models, we can meet all groundscare requirements."

All three of Landini's Compact 40 Series tractors are powered by Mitsubishi engines tuned to give plenty of power with low-impact exhaust emissions and good fuel economy.

With 28hp generated by its 1.5-litre engine, the Landini 2840 is the smallest model in the range. It comes in two versions - with an all-mechanical shuttle gearbox giving 12 speeds in forward and reverse or with a three-speed hydrostatic drive, which gives the driver infinitely variable speed control and easy driving characteristics.

The Landini 4140H and 4740H are bigger tractors; they have a wheelbase increased from 1.66m to 1.75m to maintain stability with the heavier and more power-demanding implements they can handle.

Both are produced with three-speed hydrostatic drive, giving variable speed control within ranges - for very slow work, such as aeration; for medium-speed operations such as mowing; and for quick travel between work sites.

The Landini 4140H is powered by a 2.3-litre Mitsubishi engine developing 41hp, while the 4740H's 2.5-litre version develops 47hp.

"Four-wheel drive using a strong cast front axle and lockable rear axle differential gives all the new machines excellent traction to prevent marking of fine turf surfaces," emphasises Landini UK technical specialist Tony Burgess, "The 55-degree steering angle, meanwhile, ensures agile manoeuvrability around trees, on golf courses and in other tight working situations."

A wide range of equipment can be handled by the single-speed mid- and rear power take-off and rear implement linkage of the tractors - lift capacity of the Landini 2840 and 2840H is 1188kg, and 1250kg on the two larger models.

The tractors are now available through Landini's retail dealers, who provide local servicing and reliable parts supply throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
