 Zetor Tractors. Anybody have info they can share?

I currently own a 1962 Ford 601 Workmaster tractor.
I have a BushHog SQ600 cutter.
I keep approx. 12 acres brush-hogged. The land is an old hayfield + I mow between rows of an old apple orchard.

I would like to sell the old Ford and get something a little more modernized. Last year I rented a Mahindra 3510 and it performed well.

I am not a "professional farmer" i.e. I like to keep the land clean so my kids can enjoy it. I do not need a front end loader or anything like that.

I have two friends here in town, one owns a Mahindra franchise, the other Kubota. I've also researched Eicher & Century. Today, a very nice owner of an ag equipment company told me to think long & hard about a "compact tractor" and mentioned Zetor tractors. Things to consider he said were: overall wheelbase, overall weight, engine torque capabilities, gal.per minute of hydraulic system, lift capacity of 3PT. All very good, I thought, and some I hadn't thought of.

I suppose I'm looking to get insight from those that may know pro vs con when it comes to "compact tractors". The acreage I mow is both flat and quite hilly-it's both!!

Anyway, the more informed thoughts and opinions I can get from folks "in the know" would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Evets

Zetor is a great value in a utility tractor. I bought a Century 3045 mostly because of the 14 acres of former pasture I have. They are imported by the same company. IF you're sure you are not broadening the scope of your use, they are worth a look for sure. If you have any visions of getting other attachments such as a FEL, I would go more with the CUT and 4WD. Personally I can't imagine having a tractor without a FEL and I can't imagine having a 2WD tractor with a FEL. I would carefully evaluate what your needs are. Any new tractor is a large investment to only use for occasional bush hogging. Very difficult to advise without knowing more about your situation.
