Landini launch

By Country News

Konigs Shepparton will launch its specialist range of Landini orchard-vineyard tractors on May 29.

Established in 1948, Konigs offers customers a fully equipped service workshop and a spare parts department. Konigs has one of the largest showrooms in the country, and its focus on orchard and vineyard farming has made it one of the top 10 Silvan dealers in Australia.

‘‘We are excited to be appointed as Goulburn Valley’s Landini tractor dealership,’’ owner Leo Schoonderbeek said.

‘‘Landini has been manufacturing tractors for 135 years and is famous for specialist orchard, vineyard and utility farm tractors. Landini also has the largest range of specialist high clearance tractors for the Australian market.’’

The Landini Rex, 4 Series and 9000 Series tractors have special features to give better control on hillsides, when spraying or when towing heavy loads. There are a wide range of tractor widths and heights as well as a variety of transmission options for every orchard or vineyard application.

The open day begins at 10am on Wednesday, May 29, with the official Landini launch function to be held from 6.30pm.

Visitors can watch Landini tractor demonstrations, meet product representatives and view the latest Silvan sprayers and Galaxy orchard mowers.
