Zetor: Major series expanded and updated
Zetor Tractors has expanded its Major model series. A revised Major 80 with 75hp has been joined by a new Major 60 with 61hp.
The Czech Republic-based manufacturer has reacted to the popularity of this series among customers by offering them a wider choice. The introduction of these new modesla also marks the introduction of new engines to Zetor’s portfolio in the shape of the Deutz AG TCD 2.9 L4.
Serial production of the Major series began in 2013 and customer interest in the new model far exceeded expectations. In the first year, 400 more tractors were produced than the original estimate. The success of the model series was confirmed in 2014 when it enjoyed consistently high sales.
“Majors offer a spacious cab with a low volume of noise, minimal speed starting from 1.4km/hr at rated speed, low fuel consumption and a powerful hydraulic pump,” Zetor’s director of the sales and marketing, Adam Žert, said. “We believe that all these aspects and the excellent price-to-performance ratio will maintain the popularity of the series among customers.”
The new Major 60 and 80 are equipped with a four-stroke compression ignition engine with a common rail fuel injection system, turbocharger and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). They use the four-cylinder TCD 2.9 L4 engine from Deutz AG, which meets the Stage IIIB emissions standard.
The gearbox has 12F/12R ratios and the tractor’s maximum speed is 30km/hr. Majors are fitted with wet disk brakes with mechanical control, while the hydraulics feature mechanical regulation and a maximum lifting force of 2,400kg. The external hydraulic system has two circuits and the oil flow is 50 lit/min.
