Period tractor ZETOR 25 with plough
The period after the Second World War was one of the most difficult for the majority of the population of our region. Based on the principle of collective guilt, they were deprived of citizenship, political and human rights. Their property was confiscated and they were forcibly deported to Hungary and forced labour in Bohemia. A partial calming down took place only after an order from the USSR to put an end to the conflicts within the so-called socialist camp. In 1949, the stressed population was granted citizenship and were able to return to farming. It was then that the then modern Zetor 25 tractors began to appear in the local fields.
Their production began in 1946 in Zbrojovka Brno, where their name was born: ZET as the first letter of Zbrojovka, and the suffix OR from the word tractor. It was a two-litre, two-cylinder, versatile and unpretentious machine, which represented a significant increase in agricultural productivity for both the Rúbani and the surrounding area. Being a tractor driver was a major shift in the social hierarchy in the countryside. The tractor became an iconic machine, even in times of violent collectivisation. Its qualities were recognised by everyone.
Fortunately, times have changed, violent solutions are on the wane and there is debate rather than orders. Democracy and the market economy have reappeared, but Zetor continues to produce… . As one of the few enterprises of the former socialism, it survived the period of privatisation and still faithfully serves farmers and wine-growers and our region.
Meanwhile, the Zetor 25 has become a rare collector’s item, and instead of May Day celebrations, it’s gossiped about and at gatherings of glittering veterans.
