The HORTUS HS model is further equipped with the so-called Power Shuttle, i.e. reverser which can change travelling direction under load. Maximum speed of the tractors is 40 kph; these tractors are also equipped with the system of wet brakes. Two oil pumps provide the hydraulic circuit with flow capacity of 60 l/min. This tractor is also equipped with air-conditioning, which makes the work of the operator more comfortable, mainly during long and hard spells of work.

ZETOR has further extended its product portfolio by the new UTILIX model range. The heart of the new UTILIX tractors is the four-cylinder engine.

“The new tractors are small and light; therefore, they are more easily controlled than bigger machines. They can be used not only in cultivation and gardening, but also in stables and other areas with limited space. Due to their manoeuvrability, they are also ideal for road maintenance,” adds Tibor Liška.

Customers can start ordering the tractors right now with the first tractors to be delivered in March 2018. The introduction of the UTILIX and HORTUS tractors extended ZETOR product portfolio to six models covering the power range from 40 to 160 hp.

“It is very positive that ZETOR extended its product portfolio by tractors with lower power. Thus, we are entering a new area in the market where we have to win our position. I understand it as a great opportunity and challenge,” says Tibor Liška.

Apart from the HORTUS HS 65 tractor, the ZETOR booth will offer tractors of the MAJOR, PROXIMA, and FORTERRA model ranges including front loaders within the ZETOR SYSTEM. The visitors can be looking forward to Special LAMMA Prices on the presented products.

“We don’t forget even about possible financing for the new tractors. For further information, you can contact the staff at the booth. You are all welcome to come; this year you can find us located at our traditional stand R20,” says Tibor Liška.
