Zetor dealer T.H. Troughton of Newry has received first delivery of the new Zetor Major tractor now being launched on the Irish market.
Described as a simple, low-tech, value for money machine, the Major is free of complex electronics and expensive high-tech gadgetry with controls that are easy to operate.
Aimed at farmers seeking a tractor that will be less costly to operate and less technically challenging to maintain, it is being launched at an introductory price from £26,000 (incl. VAT).
Power comes from Zetor’s tried and trusted four-valve engine. Features include a fully-synchronised, four-stage, 12 + 12 gearbox with a three-stage reduction and reversing capability.
Mechanically regulated hydraulics stand out in terms of lifting strength, high lifting force and smooth operation with a lock function that works when transporting attachments.
Other items include a Dromone hitch and inclusive two-years warranty with an option to buy extended cover for an additional two years. A spacious, comfortable cabin has a roof window as standard. It can be retrofitted for air conditioning, radio and roof light installation.
