“PROXIMA is among the most popular model series, which is why we’ve decided to apply a new design on these tractors after the MAJOR range. It is once again based on the design concept we´ve introduced in cooperation with the Italian studio Pininfarina and we’re definitely looking to use it for other model ranges as well,” said Jakub Hurta, the Marketing Manager for ZETOR TRACTORS a.s.
The new range also feature a host of additional improvements including
a unique hood angle and new roof shape, which allows the tractor driver a better view from the cabin and better view when working with front loaders. The A/C and heating system have been significantly improved and new material strength improving technologies have been used in the production.
The new design was introduced on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the PROXIMA line. It appeared for the first time in 2004 as a successor of older models. PROXIMA PLUS came three years later with a front and right axle intended for heavy loads, closely followed by PROXIMA POWER with a new electro-hydraulic reverse gear shifting system.
The tractors will be available under the names PROXIMA CL, PROXIMA GP and PROXIMA HS with power ratings from 76 to 117 HP. The new design will gradually be applied to all three models, as well as other model ranges.
“PROXIMA tractors will find applications in both small and mid-sized agricultural businesses, in forestry or communal services. These are universal tractors with simple controls, ideal for virtually any work. They also excel when working with front loaders,” added Jakub Hurta.
