Zetor boosts spec levels with new Crystal 170 HD tractor

Adding to its Crystal range of six-cylinder tractors, Zetor has introduced a new top model, the 170 HD.

Revealed at the recent Zeme Zivitelka farm show in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic (pictured above), the new Zetor Crystal 170 HD tractor complements the current 150 model, and replaces the 160. In addition, spec levels across the range have been increased, with both the 150 and 170 models receiving Zetor’s ‘HD’ designations.

 

As with the 150, the 170 employs a 6.1-litre, six-cylinder Deutz engine, providing a maximum power level of 171hp. This makes it the most powerful tractor in the firm’s current portfolio. Stage 4 emissions standards are met via the use of exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalytic reduction using AdBlue.

 

The Deutz motor is married to Zetor’s own 30 by 30 gearbox. It is made up of two ranges with five gears in each, along with a three-way splitter in each of the gears. The latter can be used in automatic mode, and it also gets an electro-hydraulically operated shuttle.

To save fuel, the engine and gearbox combo can achieve 40kph at 1,750rpm. It also offers 13 gears in the most frequent working range of four to 12kph, says the manufacturer.

 

At the rear, two auxiliary lift cylinders offer an 8.5 tonne lift capacity. It also gets four double-acting spools as standard, along with a 19mm (three quarter inch) return coupling.

 

HD-spec sees the cab interior change from a predominantly mechanical affair to an increased level of electronic control. This includes the spools which can now have their flow and timing adjusted, and rear linkage which sees electronic control over depth, drop rate, draft mix and upper limit. All this is laid out in a new right hand console, similar to that used on the four-cylinder Forterra HD models.

A new LCD colour dash is also a feature, which shows a greater variety of information, says the manufacturer. For increased visibility, the cab has been raised 10cm, and up to eight LED work lights can be specified.

 

Up front, the Crystal HD is equipped with independent front axle suspension courtesy of Carraro. It features 100 per cent differential locking, and incorporates hydraulically-operated brakes. It can also be equipped with central axle greasing points.

 

Available to order now, its first public UK debut will be at Lamma 2019.
