21.6.2017

ZETOR will present its latest range of tractors at the four-day Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh, Scotland. During the event, visitors will get the opportunity to view the New MAJOR HS and the Stage IV PROXIMA and FORTERRA range of products.

“On our stand, we will exhibit six models from our major, Proxima and Forterra ranges. One of the stars of the show will be the MAJOR HS, which was launched on the market at the beginning of the year. It is a compact machine with a four-cylinder engine, 2.9-litre capacity and 76 HP power output. The gearbox has 24 forward gears and 12 reverse gears, a two-stage torque multiplier (PowerShift) and electro-hydraulic reverser (PowerShuttle), which enables a smooth change of direction even when the tractor is under load,” says Rob Dunk, National Sales Manager ZETOR UK Limited, commenting on the new tractor.

The new MAJOR HS will find its place in both, livestock and municipal applications. It is intended for customers who seek high comfort, excellent ergonomics but simplicity in this class. In addition to this year’s new products, the upgraded PROXIMA and FORTERRA series products will also be on the ZETOR stand.

“The PROXIMA is a universal, reliable and robust tractor with power output ranging from 80 to 120 HP. These tractors fulfil the demanding requirements of customers for work in agriculture, forestry and municipal services. The individual models offer multiple gearbox variants with regard to practical use and the needs of customers,” says Rob Dunk commenting on the PROXIMA, who adds: “On the contrary, the FORTERRA model series tractors excel in terms of their robustness and power. Offering a power output ranging from 100 to 150 HP, they can cope with heavy and complex cultivation work made easier through the higher specification HD models, the flagship of the ZETOR brand, which is an ideal alternative to the six-cylinder tractors. The HD variant also offers a robust body, suspended front axle, cab suspension and multifunctional control panel.”
