Landini unveils new PowerMax series tractorsLandini Press Release - Febuary 3, 2007
The new PowerMax series adds to LANDINI’s tractor range with two models, featuring 141 to 157 HP power ratings. These 6-cylinder tractors belong to the medium bracket, although they possess many of the characteristics common to their big brothers of the PowerMaster series from which they were created. The weights and wheelbase of the new PowerMax tractors reflect those of the medium power bracket, but the machines are in a decidedly superior class when it comes to features and technology.
The two PowerMax models, 145 and 165, boast Iveco’s NEF engines with 141 and 157 HP power ratings, but thanks to “Dual Power” mapping, they are able to provide about 10 HP more power.
This means that the operators can count on that extra power they need to overcome unforeseen and momentary obstacles, or call upon all the available power for the PTO and for transport work.
Extremely productive, the PowerMax tractors have a 295-liter capacity tank which ensures a decidedly high degree of autonomy.
The transmission has 32 speeds, 8 Powershift speeds and 4 ranges engaged by means of a button thanks to the Range Sequencer system. The electronically controlled hydraulic reverse shuttle allows the operator to program the reversals and modulate the start-ups to suit the load and the type of job being done. The electrohydraulically engaged PTO offers two speeds, 540/1000 rpm, while the electronic power lift provides a lifting capacity of up to 6670 kg. There is also a 3500 kg capacity front power lift available on request.
The front axle is proposed in either the rigid or sprung version and features a 55° steering angle which makes the PowerMax tractors particularly easy to handle.
If sprung, the assemblies are levelled electronically, while both axle versions can be fitted with a fully electrohydraulically locked differential and dedicated brakes, and the “limited slip” system, which activates automatically as the four-wheel drive engages when the brake pedals are latched together. The hydraulic circuit of the new range is the closed center type with a main piston pump that can handle up to 110 liters of oil per minute plus five hydraulic control valves, 3 mechanical (standard) and 2 electronic (optional).
Besides the top-range technological features, the new PowerMax series also boasts a very high level cab with four pillars, equipped with automatic air conditioning system, easily cleaned active filters, openable roof window, pneumatically sprung, adjustable seat and passenger seat alongside that of the operator, all of which make for an extremely comfortable place in which to work.
