Surprise in every angle, great driving comfort, good lifting force and a very good consumption. This is just a small list of attributes we can read in international reviews of ZETOR's flagship model. This year, the award-winning CRYSTAL HD is launched in modernized version with a number of functional innovations, while retaining the attributes for which it has gained popularity with customers not only in the Czech and Slovak markets.
The new machine brings customers a number of improvements compared to the previous model. It is equipped with an economical six-cylinder DEUTZ TCD 6.1 L6 engine with a maximum power output of 171 HP. The engine meets the latest EU Stage V emission standards and thus does not burden the environment with excess pollutants. At the same time, it retains the operational and economic parameters of the previous generation.
However, the biggest changes took place in the cabin. We heard the wishes and needs of customers and together with them we brought a number of improvements that will further increase comfort of the machine. The completely new roof based on ZETOR by Pininfarina design study offers even better view on the front loader thanks to its indented shape and new sunroof. In addition, it already meets the FOPS (Falling Object Protection Structure) as a standard.
CRYSTAL is also equipped with a new controller for work lights and beacons control. It includes a number of advanced functions such as automatic activation of work lights according to the selected direction of travel or a memory function. The machine has a LED package with 4 roof lights and 2 spotlights, which can be expanded with another 4 LED roof lights as an option.
Other innovations include improved plastic technology which ensures higher temperature resistance and UV stability of the material. In addition, the tractor is equipped with a completely new air conditioning and heating system, which offers a significant improvement in their performance.
Of course, the tractor also features a suspended front axle, a multifunctional right panel with electronically controlled hydraulic sections, a three-point hitch with a maximum lifting force of up to 85 kN and an ECO 40 transmission allowing to operate at a maximum speed of 40 km/h at an economical 1750 rpm.
ZETOR CRYSTAL offers enough power to work with medium-sized aggregations in demanding conditions and is a reliable partner for customers in animal and plant production or for contractors.
