On the Level

We have a Landini tractor. Landini is a division of Massey Ferguson. The Landin is made in Italy. It's a good tractor but it has needed a sun roof for some time. I'm not sure why it hasn't had a sun roof up until now.


So, I went on line to order a sun roof from the local  Landini dealer. He's out of business. I found that there were Landini tractor parts available on eBay and in China, Kansas, Iowa and Fabbrico Italy. I wasn't overly excited about our options. I went back on line and searched for "tractor sun roofs". Who knew? A company makes "universal fit" tractor sun roofs. I ordered one. It came a few days ago. For a while, it sat in a box behind the tasting room. I recently got around to installing it. I had to wait a bit though while the mechanic we employ to service the tractor finished up what he was doing. While I waited I told him I was going to install the sun roof when he was done. I asked him if he ever had assembled IKEA furniture and wanted to help. He declined. I asked him if I should read the installation instructions. He said "Only after you're done counting the extra parts." I followed his advice.


Later I was to find out that one of the most important tasks was to make certain that the roof was level with the tractor body when finished. The instructions said that the tires of the tractor should be equally inflated and the tractor should be on level ground before beginning.


You will, no doubt, see the Landini in the fields mowing the rows between the vines. That helps naturally replenish the nitrogen in the soil. You will also see the Landini with our new Venturi sprayer in tow. Unlike a tank sprayer the Venturi allows us to focus the spray. That, in turn, allows us to use much less spray. It also allows us to take a more organic approach to farming the vineyard.  Both the mowing techniques and the use of a Venturi sprayer are important to our efforts as we attempt to move more and more toward an organic vineyard. The Landini is extraordinary useful in such efforts.


But if you happen to see the Landi and wonder why the sunroof seems to be a bit off level, I can assure you that it is not. It just a matter of how you look at it. If the Landini is parked in the right spot or operating on a properly slope hillside, the sun roof is perfectly level.
