Enhanced driver comfort, vision and controls

Tractor drivers get a better deal in terms of comfort, improved all-round visibility and better controls when they get aboard the new Master Class cab fitted to latest-spec versions of the Landini Landpower.

The six-cylinder machine, which has particular appeal among operators who prefer a limited amount of electronics rather than the hi-tech systems increasingly installed on other tractors, is being supplied by Landini dealers in the South West: Farm Equipment Service, Radstock; Clive Dodson Agricultural Engineer, Blandford Forum; C J Keitch Engineering, Honiton; Lee Govier, Chulmleigh; Cornish Tractors, Week St Mary and E R Carlyon Agricultural Engineers, Truro.

"The four-post structure of the Master Class cab replaces a more compact design with six pillars," said Paul Wade of Landini distributor AgriArgo UK. "The lack of B-posts makes a big difference to visibility both left and right, and is especially useful when operating a hedge cutter or when working in and around buildings."

Both scenarios are typical for the Landpower, which is unique to the Landini range and one of only a few six-cylinder tractors with power outputs starting at less than 140hp. It also retains the attractiveness to many operators of an engine with mechanical fuel injection, a simple transmission with synchro shuttle, and mechanical operation of the spool valves and three-point linkage.

The cab is wider overall but especially at the front where there is now room for a passenger seat – and enough floor space for the driver's dog to ride in comfort.
