JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-Zetor North America, Inc., announced the re-launch of its Major series of value-priced utility tractors in the U.S. and Canada. Initially, the new Major will be available in an 80-hp, four-wheel-drive cab version, with 60-, 70-hp, two-wheel-drive and cabriolet (open station) models to be added later.
Along with its heavy-duty frame, the Major features a rugged, reliable and easy-to-service four-cylinder Zetor engine free from the complex electronics and computer controls of other tractors in its class. In addition, the Major's engine offers a torque rise of more than 35 percent, reducing the need for frequent downshifting.
Adding to its ease of operation is the Major's 12-speed forward/12-speed reverse synchro-shuttle gearbox and user-friendly hydraulic system. With a lift capacity of more than 5,500 pounds (2,600 kg), the Major ranks as one of the most powerful tractors in its class.
