Showcasing Zetor

We recently held a Zetor Demo day just outside Methlick.  Showcasing the Zetor Major and the HSX, we put these tractors through their paces.  The new HSX tractor is equipped with the very latest technology: the latest power shuttle generation, new 5 speed gearbox with 3 stage multiplier, a more powerful hydraulic system, hitchtronic 3 point hitch controls, lcd display, longer wheel base for better tractor stability and many more features.  HSX Specification here.

The Major offers reliability and excellent price – power ratio. The tractor is equipped with a fully synchronised four speed transmission with three reduction ranges in both forward and reverse, offering 12×12 gears in total.  Major specification here.

We had a very good turnout on the day and the Zetor HSX was certainly getting favourable comments from Zetor owners and also from owners of other Tractor Brands.  Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event, we hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Landini 5H Series

Landini 5H Series

The 5H Series is midway between the Powerfarm of which it inherits the cab and the wheel base, and the more structured Powermondial Series featuring a 3 ranges Powershift, i transmission, epicyclic final drives and power lift. The engine hood has been restyled to reflect the Landini family feeling and the taillights are a new design.
The modular and versatile transmission is available with four synchronized gears and three mechanical speed ranges (SPEED FOUR) with hydraulically controlled oil-bath multi-plate PTO as a basic version.
The entry level 12 +12 is available on both 18.7 MPH (30 kPH) and 25 MPH (40 kPH) versions and is combined with an intermediate 24 +12 version equipped with mechanical reverse shuttle and overdrive (TECHNO VERSION). A substantial novelty is represented by the combination of the hydraulic reverse shuttle with the T Tronic three-shift option ( H-M-L high-medium-low) which triples the gears of the basic transmission to achieve 36 forward + 12 reverse speeds. (TOP VERSION).

A creep transmission is available as an option on both TECHNO and TOP versions. The Top version is equipped with a De-clutch system allowing the operator to change mechanical gears by simply depressing the button placed on the gear shift lever without using the clutch pedal.
The De-clutch system is engaged by an electronic control unit, the same one controlling the hydraulic reverse shuttle, the T Tronic H-M-L gearbox and the PTO. The PTO comes with a choice of 3 speeds – 540, 750 (540 Eco) and 1000 rpm according to the requested version.

The mechanical power lift (electronic power lift only on TOP version) is equipped with draft control function on the lower links. With the adoption of the new hood, the range of engines powering the 5H series has been enhanced with a new, more powerful model that delivers 110.2 hp. With this latest addition, the 5H tractor range is now composed of five models: the 80 model powered by a naturally-aspirated engine, the 90 model powered by a turbocharged engine and three turbo aftercooled models, the 100, 110 and 115, all meeting the Tier 3 emission standards.

The new 5H Series is available both in cab and plat versions and represents the Landini technological innovation as well as a winning combination of two ergonomic, reliable and high performing ranges such as the Powerfarm and the Powermondial featuring the essence of modernity.

Zetor Forterra 135

Breaking Records and Winning Awards:

The Zetor Forterra 135 tractor with it’s new 16 valve engine has won one of the most prestigious awards in a tough test conducted by the German Agricultural Society (DLG).  It became one of the tractors with four cylinder engines offering the best fuel economy on the market, without compromising its HP.

The Zetor Forterra 135 belongs to a completely innovated Forterra 2010 range.  Its characteristics include elegant facelift, interior innovations and improved accessories, as well as a completely new engine which played a key role in the aforementioned success.  For the first time ever, this model is powered by a four cylinder Z 1605 engine with V16 Technology.  It is a brand new concept ensuring the increase of the engine output by 30%, the improvement of torque by more than 47%, as well as improved efficiency of its cooling system and especially better fuel economy.

Fuel consumption measurement also contributed to the positive test results: with only 283g/kWh the Forterra 135 became one of the top products, being 5.7% more effective than the average figure for all previously tested tractors.  Therefore, its 180 litre fuel tank capacity is good for the whole workday without refuelling.

Lifting power, hydraulic horsepower and manoeuvrability of the Zetor Forterra 135 have also succeeded in the Test.

Galfre Tedders and Rakes

We recently became agents for Galfre Agricultural Machinery and have been selling their Rotary Rakes and Tedders over the last few months.  These have proved to be a great success with our customers.  These Italian built machines offer fantastic value for money and even though we are at the end of the haymaking season, it is never too early to put in your order for next year!
