The new 150 horsepower Zetor Forterra HD is now available through dealers across North America.
Zetor brand has been present in the U.S. and Canadian markets since the late 1970s. The traditional Czech manufacturer of agricultural machinery, Zetor Tractors a.s., has expanded its range of farm tractors for the US and Canadian markets with the 150hp Forterra HD. The objective was to introduce a high horsepower tractor with a four-cylinder engine offering fuel economy and low operating costs that no six-cylinder tractor with the same power can match, while also delivering the durability and reliability Zetor Forterra tractors have been known for almost 20 years.
Forterra HD tractors feature a combination of high power and torque, fuel efficiency and operator’s comfort. It’s equipped with the top version of the Zetor 4-cylinder engine with Zetor 16-valve technology. The Zetor inline injection pump and mechanical injectors are simple in design, and shows low operating costs, reliability, and long life expectancy. Engine balancing shafts make the HD engine run smooth while reducing noise levels.
Forterra HD is equipped with a 30/30 power shuttle transmission introduced in 2012 in the HSX series. The PTO clutch control is new and automatically adjusts the startup speed depending on the implement. It has an extended wheelbase so the comfort is fully comparable to six-cylinder tractors. The inside noise has been reduced by 3dBA.
A cab suspension and the new patented front axle with spring suspension are available as options. Standard four sets of remotes are controlled electronically by solenoid valves. Their controls along with most other controls and two electronic joysticks are newly arranged on the right side of the cab to underscore the new hi-tech design of the cab interior.
