Despite the negative trend in agriculture, the Zetor group, traditional Czech tractor manufacturer, has managed to raise its consolidated profit before tax, increasing it by 47% year-on-year to the present 200 million crowns.
Brno, February 21, 2013 – This week ZETOR TRACTORS a.s., a well-established producer of agricultural machinery, is beginning serial production of its new tractor Zetor Major.
The new Major series utility tractors combine Zetor's legendary large capacity, high torque, extremely fuel-efficient engines with a new 12/12 fully synchronized transmisson with synchro shuttle.
Brno, 17 July 2012 – This year’s new model, the Zetor Forterra HSX, entered serial production in June. The first finished tractors are heading to the USA. Orders for the new line have also been coming in from the Czech Republic, England, Holland, and Poland. The first Zetor Forterra HSX tractor left the assembly line on June 25. Among the model’s main innovations is the power shuttle feature, which greatly contributes to the increased comfort of the tractor operator.
The new Forterra HSX is the most advanced tractor series we ever built. The HSX series is powered by the new 16-valve, high torque, high efficiency engine. Independent tests show that the new Zetor engine is one of the most fuel-efficient engines ever designed for a tractor. At today's fuel prices, this represents fuel savings of $2 to $3 per hour over an average engine of this size.
The Zetor Forterra 135 model with the new 16 valve engine is not only recognized by industry experts but also by professional farmers who use it daily. Actual data received from American farmer, M. Harper- Ky, praises the low fuel consumption.
The Zetor Group, traditional Czech manufacturer of tractor machinery, achieved in the first half of the year 2011 consolidated profit before tax in the amount of CZK 54 million. However, the most important reward was the success in a tough test conducted by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), according to which the Zetor Forterra 135 with a new 16-valve engine is one of the most fuel-efficient tractors on the market.
The Zetor Forterra 135 tractor with a new 16-valve engine has won one of the most prestigious awards in a tough test conducted by the German Agricultural Society (DLG).
