Part of the agricultural scene in Ireland since the 1940s, Zetor tractors are now being distributed by Zetor Sales Ireland whose headquarters are in Birdhill, Co. Tipperary.

Big selling models are the Forterra and Proxima, of which the recently-introduced 16-valve Forterra HSX attracted significant interest at the recent National Ploughing Championships.

Shortly, the company will introduce a four-wheel drive, 80hp Zetor Major model which they say will be competitively-priced.
