A wide range of new ZETOR upgraded models that meet Tier 4 requirements will be featured for the first time at LAMMA. For example the Forterra 140 HSX, Proxima 100 and Major 80 HS.
“So far, the Major model range has offered only one type of tractor with a four-cylinder engine and power of 61 or 76hp,” Zetor Tractors’ sales and marketing director, Robert Todt, said. “The mechanical gearbox with 12 gears forward and 12 reverse, maximum speed of 30km/hr and mechanical hydraulics with manual control turned Major into a simple but durable assistant of the farmers.”
The original Major will remain rebadged as the CL, but now Zetor ia offering the new machine HS as well. It has the proven four-cylinder engine with displacement of 2.9 litres and power of 76hp, but comes with an upgraded transmission with 24 forward gears and 12 reverse. The four mechanical ratios in the gearbox are multiplied by a three-range splitter a two-stage PowerShift torque multipler. In addition, the Major HS is equipped with hydraulic PowerShuttle which allows the change of direction under load.
The maximum speed of the new tractor is 40km/hr, 10km/hr more than the CL model. The minimum speed is 0.5km/hr. Within the working range from 4km/hr to 12km/hr, the Major HS offers six gears. The tractor further employs hydraulics with mechanical regulation that’s said to be outstanding both for its above-standard high lifting power (up to 3,300kg) and smooth lowering regulation, including the function of a hydraulic lock in travelling position.
The new Zetor Major HS80 offers an upgraded transmission and cab equipment for more demanding buyers.
“A larger fuel tank with the volume of 120 litres allows the tractor to work for a longer time without breaks,” Robert Todt added. “Our design is a result of the wishes and remarks of our customers. The tractor meets the requirements of the most demanding customers who are looking for comfortable solutions and tractor versatility.”
The first of the new tractors will be delivered to customers in the first quarter of 2017.
