Zetor, a Czech agricultural machinery manufacturer, has been selling equipment in the United States and Canada since the late 1970s. Zetor Tractors expands its presence in North America with the introduction of the 150 hp Forterra HD. The lineup sports a Zetor 4-cylinder engine with Zetor 16-valve technology. Engine balancing shafts make the HD engine run as smooth as a six-cylinder, while reducing noise levels.
Forterra HD is equipped with 30/30 power shuttle transmission introduced in 2012 in the HSX series. The HD sports a PTO clutch control that automatically adjusts the startup speed depending on the implement for fast but smooth engagement. To enhance operator’s comfort, Forterra HD has an extended wheelbase so the comfort is fully comparable to six-cylinder tractors.
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.
