This year, the Zetor Proxima will undergo several innovations and improvements. Most important feature is the new four-cylinder turbocharged Deutz engine, with an output of 97-125 HP. It meets the Stage V emission standard.
Zetor Proxima tractors are the universal helpers that can be found in small and medium-sized farms, forests, and municipalities. Low fuel consumption, reliability and simplicity of construction, are reflected in the overall low operating costs.
The first Proxima was launched in 2004. Since that time, more than 36,000 of them have been produced and work all around the world. It is currently one of the most popular Zetor models. For its 18th birthday this year, the Proxima will receive several functional improvements that will make it even more attractive.
“The most fundamental change is the transition to Stage V emission grade with a four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine TCD 3.6 with an output of 97-125 HP from Deutz,” says Marek Buchar, technical director of ZetorTractors a.s. “Compliance with the Stage V emission standard is ensured by a particulate filter (DPF) together with exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and oxidation catalyst (DOC). The engine is equipped with a modern Common-Rail injection system. At first glance, most customers will also notice the new exhaust pipe and significantly smoother and quieter engine operation.”
There will continue to be three model lines available: Proxima CL, Proxima GP, and the most powerful Proxima HS. The tractor offers, among other things, improved controls on the dashboard, a urea tank with a capacity of 21 liter, or a transmission oil clogging indicator. It is easily accessible under the tractor cabin and allows the operator to easily and quickly check the oil purity.
“In front of the cabin, there is also a newly available compressed air outlet, which brings the possibility of more comfortable cleaning of the coolers. But it can also be used, for example, to inflate tires. On request, the Proxima can be equipped with an external lockable toolbox, which has improved fixing and higher load capacity,” continues Marek Buchar.
The Proxima is popular for its simplicity, reliability, and economy. The new modernized series is still built on these pillars, plus meets the new requirements and needs of Zetor customers.
“Tractors in the Proxima model range have always been a reliable and versatile helper. We believe that the premiere of the new Proxima will be successful and we look forward to presenting it to the public at trade fairs. The first customers can look forward to the modernized model at the end of this year,” Petr Konštacký, Director of Sales and Marketing at Zetor Tractors concludes.
