Zetor Forterra CL, HSX, HD Overview

The 96-147 horsepower Zetor Forterra CL, HSX, and HD machines offer a variety of features and options ideal for agricultural applications.

Zetor Foreterra Highlights

The Forterra range tractors are excellent in their robustness and performance. You can find three variants in the Forterra range: The basic Forterra CL is equipped with a four-cylinder engine with a power range of 96 hp to 136 hp and a 24/18 gearbox. Unlike the basic model, Forterra HSX is equipped with a more modern 30/30 gearbox with hydraulic reverser. The highest model Forterra HD offers higher power (up to 147 hp), it has a more robust body, suspended axle and multifunctional control panel.

Performance

Thanks to the combination of a strong engine and the higher weight of the tractor, the maximum performance is achieved under any conditions.

Endurance

Forterra models are durable, even at maximum performance. They elegantly combine simple, purposeful and smart design. Zetor Forterra tractors are designed as reliable machines with long life.

Total Cost of Ownership

The low fuel consumption and reasonably priced spare parts make the Forterra one of the most successful tractors on the market.


Zetor Foreterra Features

Low consumption leader In 2016, a new engine generation with a further consumption and emission reduction has been launched. Forterra tractors equipped with the new engines meeting the Stage IV emission standard were tested by scientists from Mendel University. The study results confirmed that fuel consumption of the new engines is lower on average by 19.2 % than the previous engine generation. Combine this with a bigger fuel tank and it can now work an average 40 % longer between refueling.

ENGINE

Powerful with low consumption

The economical engines with 16-valve cylinder heads are the result of Zetor’s own development and manufacture. The construction of the engine is perfectly tailored to meet the requirements of each specific model. With its 16-valve cylinder head economic engine, it provides long life, optimum performance while providing low fuel consumption. By meeting the “Stage Tier 4 (IV) Final Emission Standards”, the environment is not harmed with excessive pollutants from the engine, which is a result of Zetor’s very own development and manufacturing team.


Power  96-147 HP

The optimized engine combustion leads to a lower heat load, lower consumption and higher pulling power

  • The excellent torque rise characteristics allows the engine to operate at low speeds with high loads and without the need of frequent gear shifting
  • The high quality of the engine guarantees long life
  • The mechanical injection pump with electronic regulation means low fuel consumption
  • Very good acceleration and easy starting of the engine even at low temperatures
  • Zetor engines fully use their power – there are no artificial power increases like those offered by competitors, who often specify a so-called PowerBoost, i.e. power that is only available under certain conditions

GEARBOX

Matching force and accuracy

Zetor develops and manufactures its own gearboxes using high-quality materials that provide endurance, efficiency and long life.

A higher number of usable speed gears keeps the engine at the optimum speed when working in the field, as well as during transport. This keeps the fuel consumption low. In the most frequently used working range, you can rely on 7 or 9 gear ratios, and benefit from automatic gear shifting even if the tractor is under load. The more comfortable gear shifting and easier operation of Forterra tractors are also enabled by the function of the automatic torque multiplier which that ensures automatic gear shifting of the multiplier depending on the engine speed.

Forterra CL

Four-speed gearbox with three-stage multiplier

24 forward and 18 reverse speeds

7 gear ratios in the working range of 6-12 km/h

Forterra HSX and HD

Five-speed gearbox with three-stage multiplier and hydraulic reverser

30 forward and 30 reverse speeds

9 gear ratios in the working range of 6-12 km/h


HYDRAULICS

Force and efficiency

Zetor FORTERRA tractors are equipped with electro-hydraulics from Bosch that offer high efficiency when working with coupled implements. Two auxiliary hydraulic cylinders ensure a uniform load of the tractor and a maximum lifting force of up to 85 kN. To make the work in the field easier and more quality, the tractor is equipped with an automatic headland turning sequence system.

Maximum lifting force

Forterra CL 77 kN

Forterra HSX & Forterra HD 85 kN

Forterra HD is equipped with an additional four hydraulic quick couplers with electro-hydraulic control.

Zetor Hitchtronic system

HitchTronic

The unique HitchTronic system received a number of professional awards after it was put on the market. This system of automatic regulation of the rear three-point hitch does not require any setting of various types of regulation and their sensitivity. The system itself measures the soil resistance and regulates the three-point hitch adjustment accordingly to the current values.

5-7 %

The HitchTronic system thus increases the productivity of your work and, at the same time, reduces fuel consumption by 5-7%.


CAB

Comfort and good view

The Forterra cab is comfortable on any ground. When working, you will appreciate the excellent ergonomic design. The cabs of Zetor tractors are spacious and driving comfort is improved by the dashboard with intuitive control of the machine.

The Forterra HD is, in addition, equipped with a multifunctional panel on which all the important controls are combined. The driver has everything at hand, from hydraulic controls to the activation of the automatic headland turning sequence.

  • Spring-suspended cab in all models
  • Spring-suspended ergonomic driver’s seat, co-driver’s folding seat
  • Ideal view from the cab in all directions and of the implements
  • View through the roof for easier operation of the front loader
  • The ergonomic multifunctional panel offers comfortable and intuitive control (Forterra HD)
  • Air conditioning for setting the required temperature in any season
  • Height and reach adjustable steering wheel

AXLE

The front suspended axle of Forterra HD is structurally comprised of two separate and independently suspended half-axles. Thanks to smaller sprung masses, the axle has higher absorption and damping capacities and, therefore, a lower vibration level is achieved.

The mechanism of the independent wheel suspension is technically very similar to multilink car wheel suspension, therefore the drive in Forterra HD tractors is as comfortable as in a car.

The highest Forterra HD model is equipped with a 100% differential lock and headland turning sequence recording. The automatic headland sequence system reduces the number of actions at each turning to make machine control easier and to provide better manoeuvrability. This system is based on a combination of the automatic control of the front driven wheel 4WD, differential locks and the rear power take-off.

  • Spring-suspended cab in all models
  • Spring-suspended front driven axle (Forterra HD)
  • Patented trapezoidal suspension and damping of both wheels, (Forterra HD)
