A fresh wind went through the exhibition of tractors in the Zetor Gallery. Two pieces were added to the permanent tractor collection, which are considered to be real rarities, not seen very often. These are the historic Zetor Super County and Zetor 3045. What makes these models so special?
In order to answer this question, we go back together to 1957, when the first work began on the “0” series, which was the original series of the Unified Series. Production of the new tractor segment then began in 1960, with the 3011 model. In 1962, the 4011 model followed, and a year later the 2011 model. The demand for more stronger tractors, however, led to the growing popularity of four-wheel drive tractors, and so Zetor came up with this version of the tractors. The very first Zetor all-wheel drive tractor was the type 3045, which now can be viewed in the Zetor Gallery. The Zetor 3045 was produced in a very small series and was sold mainly to the United Kingdom.
Even rarer is the second addition to the Zetor Gallery, the Zetor Super County. This is an all-wheel prototype of a Super P caterpillar tractor that was produced before the tractors of Unified series I. The Super County model is a real rarity, all wheels are of the same size and have been skid steered with special levers. Other technical specifications, including the engine, correspond to the Zetor Super P model.
Both models are borrowed from the collection of Mr. Aleš Krejčí. These and other models from the Zetor history can be seen every day from 10 am to 5 pm in the Zetor Gallery, Trnkova 111, Brno, Czech Republic.
