Tech-shy cockies or stockies wanting a simple, good value tractor should see the Super DT 8860 from Italian manufacturer Landini.

Here’s a simple main tractor or a proficient second unit for a larger farm.

Offered only with a ROPS, it pushes out 84hp from a four-cylinder Perkins engine at about 300Nn torque. 

For transmission, a dual 12-inch dry clutch works with 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds and a straightforward synchro shuttle for direction changes. 

At rear, a two speed PTO gives choices of 540 or 750rpm, with the latter saving fuel or cutting throttle settings on lighter tasks.

Also simple, the Cat 2 rear linkage lifts 3000kg, controlled by simple mechanical levers on the quadrant to the right of the operator seat. 

Hydraulic output is via a 53L/min main pump and a secondary unit for steering and transmission lubrication, capped off by two single/double acting rear remotes.

Other details include a flat platform, a spring seat with control levers on each side, a two-post ROPS frame, 380-R24 front and 80-R34 radial tyre equipment and a two year/2000 hour warranty.
