news New Zetor Forterra 120-171 hp !

On Zeme Zivitelka fair, Ceske Budejovice, CZ, Zetor has announced to introduce a new tractor model with 120-171hp. Zetor North America says it is the new Forterra, available from third quarter of 2024. What is clear is that it has a completely new cab, but we will follow what details will be publicized in the next week.

As can be seen, it has a steel sickle above the mudguard, like the Proxima.

This is because the cabs have been placed higher on Crystal and Forterra to improve operator visibility, which left a bigger gap between tire and mudguard at the back, with the previous cab.

Possibly this allows for more room above the wheels to install the more ergonomic hydraulic control levers of the Proxima in the HSX too.

Other noticeable change is the doors are bigger, the B pillar of the cab is moved roughly 20cm back, and the door hinges are different.

Will this new Forterra have a Deutz TCD 4.1 up to 171hp ? Or will the Forterra be available in both 4 and 6 cylinder like Deutz-Fahr ? We will report as soon as more news comes out...

Because of the current price level of the Forterra, ergonomic or technical flaws are not permissible for Zetor, even at basic spec tractors they require to have their ergonomics (placement and logic of the controls, feel, noise, vibration, harshness) spic and span...

No. not yet.

But Zetor Germany will have a stand at the agra Messer in Leipzig (Germany, Saxony) in april this year. I hope we here there (or in best case: see) some news about the new model(s). And then we can inform you here. :)

Iam wondering - a new model is planed for 2024 and at this time not many official informations are to see. I think the most informations you can find at internet you will find here at our site.
 
As dealer says it will be Zetor 6 series
So, apart from using the same components as Deutz Fahr, they also use the same names ? So they arent going to sell a Zetor, but a red and cheap Deutz ? Can they actually make them cheaper as Deutz ?

Sounds like a poor business plan. If you are working for the same cost as Deutz Fahr but with a broken down dealer network, you need to cut in your margins to be able to sell them anyways.

Zetor needs a different unique selling point than price if they buy in all components...

it has been a ship full of yes people for over a decade and a half they just do not have the engineering ability also they have not taken on what there dealer network has been feeding back in that time its now just an assembler
 
"... next year ..."
Realy?? In 2023 the US Import spokes from a start in 2024 and Zetor to. And now the same as last year: next year ... :rolleyes:

Can it be - model 6 is only the 6. generation of Forterra? So I doesnt think they will kill the good and establisht name "Forterra". Or better - i hope so. ;)
 
MCAE systems 3D printed the prototype cab panels for Zetor : it is a great way of getting a feel of the design, without investing time and money in vacuum molds for forming the plastic parts. Wooden forms can be used for small batches, but they cant stand the heated plastic on them for that many cycles. Vacuum molds are therefor made by using the wooden form to create a cast form in sand, which is then cast with aluminium, which is a cost you only take when sure. 3D printing is therefor used to create proof of concept, before the actual material is being used on the wooden form to test production, before a definitive aluminium vacuum form is made.
In the days i designed cab interiors, we didnt have access to 3D printing so we changed the wooden form when needed.
