Brno, 30 March, 2012
Zetor was the first company in the world to introduce the unique technological innovation, HitchTronic, which makes all farmers' work much more efficient. Zetor introduced HitchTronic at the end of last year. Now Zetor has received a gold medal for this innovation at the 18th annual Agrotech international trade fair, which is held in the Polish city of Kielce.
“The Polish market has been, and continues to be, a very important market for us. In fact we have become number one on the Polish market in the 60-140 horsepower performance category in recent months. That's one reason why we are so pleased that we received this award in Poland. We trust it will help us strengthen our position on other markets as well," says Marián Lipovský, Deputy CEO and Manufacturing Director at ZETOR TRACTORS a.s.
The award-winning HitchTronic function was developed in co-operation with Bosh-Rexroth and makes tractor work much easier. The tractor driver simply sets the required soil plowing depth and the HitchTronic automatic control then adapts subsequent tractor settings during the entire work session. Naturally, when the HitchTronic automatic control is turned on, all of the existing electronic control functions of the tractor's hydraulic mechanism are maintained. The tractor driver can also change the automatic control back to manual at any time to manage all work parameter settings himself. HitchTronic software is now installed into all models in the Forterra product line.
