0% Finance on Landini 5H Powershuttle and Front Loader Package
Landini has announced the introduction of special subsidised machinery finance for 5-H Powershuttle models with 12×12 speed transmissions. This new scheme was launched at the beginning of January.
Potential Landini buyers may just be tempted to purchase the firm’s 5-H tractor as D & S Machinery Ltd, who are the Irish Importers, is offering an attractive tractor and front loader package. The 0% Finance Offer is available on two powershuttle models only;
Landini 5-100H Top
4-Wheel-Drive, Powershuttle model rated at 92 HP. Complete with Rossmore RFL60 Front Loader.
Retail Price €42,276 + 23%VAT = €52,000
Landini 5-110H Top
4-Wheel-Drive, Powershuttle model rated at 102 HP. Complete with Rossmore RFL60 Front Loader.
Retail Price €43,090 +23%VAT = €53,000
The 5-100H and 5-110H models are fitted with the Perkins 1104D four-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engine. Both Top models are spec’ed the same and include a wet clutch which ensures clutchless shuttling which is particularly beneficial for front loader work. These 12×12 speed transmissions feature a Shuttle Modulation Control (SMC) function. This function allows the operator to tweak the reaction of the clutch pedal and power shuttle by settling on a more aggressive setting for some jobs and a gentler engagement for others. In other words the operator can fine-tune the responsiveness of each to suit different working circumstances and personal preference
A recent restyling process has added a stylish one-piece bonnet complete with new headlamps units which incorporate corner lamps for maximum visibility. True four-wheel braking is standard on the 5-H Series which means there are brakes in the differential housing in the front axle. This ensures powerful, smooth braking with no four-wheel-drive engagement/disengagement every time the pedals are pressed. Both models feature the same 4350 kg capacity mechanical rear lift and a Dromone telescopic hitch is part of the standard package.
The four-post cab design with a clear roof glass generates all-round excellent visibility which enhances the safety benefits of this model. Electro-hydraulic PTO (540 and 1000rpm) is standard with external controls on both rear fenders. Also included are swivel-front fenders, air seat and passenger seat.
This new operation will allow Landini customers an opportunity to get finance through their dealers. The finance is funded by De Lage Lenden Leasing Company, a leading French bank. Offers open to business users only and are subject to terms and conditions, subject to acceptance. A fee may be charged and maximum available to finance is 50% of the total prevailing Retail Price.
