Tractors of the ZETOR MAJOR model range are one of the most popular in the brand’s product portfolio with customers. MAJOR CL 80 model retains the features of its predecessors that gave him reputation of a life-long tractor. Yet for the year 2021, the Brno-based tractor manufacturer has made it even better with a number of new features and technical innovations. The most striking one is the advance to Stage V emission standard. In addition, cabin was redesigned to offer better comfort.
‘MAJOR CL 80 model is equipped with a four-cylinder diesel engine TCD 2.9 L4 with a turbocharger by DEUTZ AG Company with the power of 75 hp. The emission system has been innovated with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which together with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) complies with Stage V emission standard,’ says Marek Buchar, Technical Director, ZETOR TRACTORS a.s. As a result of high-pressure fuel injection with electronic control (Common-Rail), the engine offers polished and quiet run and economical operation parameters. Thanks to a very good torque reserve, it keeps its performance without the need to downshift frequently.
To offer better comfort, customers can now choose from two comfortable and spacious cabin versions. Both have been designed to respect practical use.
STANDARD cabin offers a version with a hard roof and a version with FOPS (Falling-Objects Protective Structures) and a sunroof. To increase overall comfort, as an option, the cabin can be equipped with air-conditioning and mechanical suspended seat with arm rests and head support.
PLUS cabin has standard air-conditioning and just like STANDARD cab it offers a hard roof or a version with FOPS and a sunroof. Seat with mechanical suspension, arm rests and head support can be made more comfortable using pneumatic suspension as an option. Passenger seat is optional, too.
In addition, PLUS cabin offers steering column that can be tilted and adjusted for height, improved ergonomics of rear three-point hitch control and PTO mode, switches identical to higher model ranges, non-slip foot pedal pads and improved system of differential lock control. A new very user-friendly feature is using the same key to start the engine and lock the door. Work with equipment is made easier by universal slots to mount equipment displays, holes for equipment cables or three-pin socket for equipment power supply. Tractors of the MAJOR model range have been proven to work well with the front loader. And now there are also other tools in the innovated MAJOR CL to make work with the loader easier, such as set-up for joystick control and addition of roof low-beam lamps.
MAJOR CL 80 is equipped with a fully synchronized four-gear transmission with three-stage reduction and mechanical reverser offering 12+12 gears. External hydraulics consists of two circuits; oil supply amounts to 50 l/m. The implementation of Stage V engine resulted in design improvements of air brakes, air inlet, engine cooling and mechanical regulation of hydraulics. As an option, the tractor can be equipped with front PTO, front three-point hitch, beacons and different size of tyres.
‘Tractors of the MAJOR model range are still universal helpers,’ says Petr Konštacký, Sales and Marketing Director, ZETOR TRACTORS a.s. ‘They can be used in small and medium farms, for animal breeding and crop growing as well as road maintenance. These tractors are reliable, easy to operate, simple to maintain and popular mainly for their simple design and low operation costs. Still, at the moment the first innovated models are on their way to the customers,’ he adds.
