Lombardini 2 wheeled tractor - anyone know of these?

Have just acquired a 20+ yo Lombardini 2 wheeled tractor which has a single cylinder diesel motor ( 1 IM 350 ) and a PTO with 3 attachments a 72 cm single blade rotary mower/slasher, a rotary hoe and a 5 foot wide "beard trimmer".

The tractor part is in perfect working order but the attachments are rather so-so.

Anybody out there familiar with this machine ?

Is a PTO which takes a 2 "( 7 cm) spigot still a standard size these days.

Wow, I never thought I'd hear someone bring up a Lombardini on this forum. I assume you are talking about the type that looks a bit like a roto tiller or snowblower. Is it the type with two wheels on the sides, engine in front and handles on the back? I don't know much about them but I have a couple in the back country in Europe. I took note because it was so different than anything here in The States.

You will have difficulty finding implements that use that pto. Probably the most popular size for smaller tractors is a 6 spline 1 5/8" diameter turning at 540 rpm. You might be able to find or make an adapter but almost everything is designed to hang off a 3 point hitch so I'm not sure what or how you could attach to yours.

I don't know much about them, but they are similar to the gravely 2-wheel tractors that used to be fairly common in the US. Attachments may interchange, I'm not sure.

The motor is a Lombardini. Actually it's a Valpadana tractor, similar to this

Have managed to find lots of info about it.
