Zetor displays latest tractors at Royal Highland Show


Zetor Tractors is presenting its latest range of machines at this week’s Royal Highland Show (June 22-25) in Scotland.

Machines on display include the Stage IV Proxima (above) and Forterra (below) vehicles. Visitors to the event in Edinburgh, Scotland, will have the opportunity to see close up the new Major HS (bottom), which has been designed with a specific focus on driver ergonomics.

Rob Dunk, national sales manager, Zetor UK, said, “On our stand, we will exhibit six models from our major Proxima and Forterra ranges. One of the stars of the show will be the Major HS, which was launched on the market at the beginning of the year.

“It is a compact machine with a four-cylinder engine, 2.9-liter capacity and 76hp output. The gearbox has 24 forward gears and 12 reverse gears, a two-stage torque multiplier (PowerShift) and electro-hydraulic reverser (PowerShuttle), which enables a smooth change of direction even when the tractor is under load.”

The British market is one of the leading European farming machinery markets. Zetor has been present in the UK for more than 50 years during which it has exported more than 37,000 tractors to the country.

“We export up to 200 tractors to the UK per year; the most popular being the Proxima model range. It is a reflection of the fact that livestock is a significant feature of British farming and Proxima is an ideal tractor for this sector,” said Robert Todt, Sales and marketing director, Zetor Tractors.
