Powerful with low consumption

The economical ZETOR engines with 16-valve cylinder heads are the result of ZETOR’S own development and manufacture. The engine construction is tailored to the requirements of a specific model, which is a guarantee of long service life, optimum performance and low fuel consumption.

96-147 HP

The optimized engine combustion leads to a lower heat load, lower consumption and higher pulling power

  • The excellent torque rise characteristics reduce the shifting frequency
  • The high quality of the engine guarantees long life
  • The mechanical injection pump with electronic regulation means low fuel consumption
  • Very good acceleration and easy starting of the engine even at low temperatures
  • ZETOR engines fully use their power – there are no artificial power increases like the so-called PowerBoost, i.e. power that is only available under certain conditions

Low consumption leader

The new ZETOR engines in the Stage V emission standard offer a significant consumption and emission reduction. They are based on Stage IV compliant engines and thus retain the operational and economic parameters of the previous generation.

These aggregates were tested by researchers from Mendel University and the results of the study confirmed that they have up to 19.2 % lower consumption than the engines in the Stage IIIB standard.

The use of the new Eco 40 gearbox additionally reduced fuel consumption.


Matching force and accuracy

ZETOR uses in-house development and manufacturing facilities for the FORTERRA gearboxes.

A higher number of usable speed gears keeps the engine at the optimum speed when working in the field, as well as during transport. This keeps the fuel consumption low. In the most frequently used working range of 4–12 km/h, you can rely on up to 13 gear speeds. The more comfortable gear shifting and easier operation of FORTERRA tractors are also enabled by the function of the automatic torque multiplier which that ensures automatic gear shifting of the multiplier depending on the engine speed.

Since 2018, the FORTERRA HSX and FORTERRA HD have been equipped with the innovated ECO40 gearbox. The new gearbox allows users to reach the maximum speed (40 km/h) at lower revolutions (1800 rpm). This optimization leads to fuel savings of up to 18%, and reduces the noise and wear of the engine.

Force and efficiency

Standard ZETOR FORTERRA versions are equipped with electro-hydraulic three-point hitch control ensuring high efficiency when working with coupled implements. To make working in the field easier and of a higher quality, the FORTERRA HD machine is equipped with an automatic headland turning sequence system.

Maximum lifting force

FORTERRA HD is equipped with an additional four hydraulic quick couplers with electro-hydraulic control.


The unique HitchTronic system received a number of professional awards after it was released on the market. It is a unique system that automatically regulates the rear three-point hitch and does not require any settings for various types of regulation and their sensitivity. The system itself measures the soil resistance and regulates the three-point hitch adjustment according to the current values.

5-7 %

The HitchTronic system thus increases the productivity of your work and, at the same time, reduces fuel consumption by 5-7%.


Comfort and good view

The FORTERRA cab is comfortable on any ground. When working, you will appreciate the excellent ergonomic design. The cabs of Zetor tractors are spacious and driving comfort is improved by the dashboard with intuitive control of the machine.

  • The completely new air conditioning system offers a significant improvement in performance and will provide tractor users with all-day comfort even on hot days.
  • For FORTERRA HD models, the tractor is already equipped with LED package with a controller for work lights and beacons as a standard (for FORTERRA HSX models on demand).
  • Spring-suspended cab in all models
  • Spring-suspended ergonomic driver's seat
  • Ideal view from the cab in all directions
  • The new sunroof, together with indented shape of the roof, provides a better view on the front loader and, in addition, already meets the FOPS safety standard
  • The ergonomic multifunctional panel offers comfortable and intuitive control (FORTERRA HD)
  • Height and reach adjustable steering wheel

Comfortable driving

The FORTERRA HD (standard) and FORTERRA HSX (optionally) are equipped with independent suspension of the front axle, which is structurally comprised of two separate and independently suspended half-axles. Thanks to smaller sprung masses, the axle has higher absorption and damping capacities and, therefore, a lower vibration level is achieved.

The mechanism of the independent wheel suspension is technically very similar to multilink car wheel suspension; therefore the drive in the FORTERRA HD and FORTERRA HSX tractors is as comfortable as in a car.

The highest Forterra HD model is equipped with a 100% differential lock and headland turning sequence recording. The automatic headland sequence system reduces the number of actions at each turning to make machine control easier and to provide better manoeuvrability. This system is based on a combination of the automatic control of the front driven wheel 4WD, differential locks and the rear power take-off.

  • Spring-suspended cab in all models
  • Spring-suspended front driven axle (Forterra HSX and Forterra HD)
