The first tractors in Zetor’s new MAJOR range have been coming of the assembly lines in Brno in the Czech Republic.
Zetor claim the new design and shape of the CL and HS versions are proving very attractive to potential customers.
At the heart of the four-cylinder tractors are Deutz engines offering 75hp. The CL version is a simple mechanical tractor with 12/12 transmission, whereas the HS version offers more comfort to the operator due to 24/12 transmission and a maximum speed of 40 kph.
The transmission is equipped with two-stage torque multiplier and electro-hydraulic reverser which makes it possible to change the travelling direction under load. The lifting capacity of the CL model is 2,400 kg; the HS version is able to lift up to 3,300 kg, which is a standard capacity for tractors of this category.
The design of the new MAJOR draws on a concept by the Italian studio Pininfarina, which is famous for its work on other iconic vehicles such as Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.
“At Agritechnica 2015, ZETOR by Pininfarina was a great international success. Last year, we kept our promise and we presented the new MAJOR with the implemented design at Agritechnica 2017. We are happy to confirm that its positive acceptance was beyond our expectations. The success of the new design is a proof that the implementation of the design to all model ranges is a step in the right direction. As a result of this, PROXIMA and FORTERRA in the new design will be launched next year,” says Marián Lipovský, Managing Director, ZETOR TRACTORS a.s., commenting on the new design.
“We have also succeeded in improving the function of the MAJOR model range – for example the location of front lamps increases the illuminated working area in front of the tractor; the unique incline of the bonnet and the new shape of the roof provide the operator with a better view of the surroundings of the tractor and the load while working with front loader,” says Marián Lipovský, enumerating the positives of the new design.
In Zetor’s tractor portfolio the MAJOR brand represents a universal farming tractor with a power capacity of up to 80 hp. Thanks to their manoeuvrability, the tractors can be widely used for various jobs around the farm such as working with tedding machines, mowers, rakes and also in transport while dragging trailers, side-drop trailers, loads and in road maintenance.
