Re: Ursus C-385
Krys what are you talking about?? zetor made this cab and
the whole tractor is zetor!! they were sold as ursus but
zetor made nearly all of it!!
Re: Ursus C-385
Hey ZETORMATIC U are bull shit teller (as my english friend
used to said)
I think U need lesson of Ursus and Zetor history, it is here
on FarmPhoto aviliable.

First U can see post 52080, where Alex Dyba (very good man
from England)wrote:
"This is the 1,000th Ursus C-385, seen on the production
on 15th March 1971. Production of this model began in July
1969 (the same year as the Zetor 8011). Many people assume
that this was a licence built version of the Zetor, which is
untrue. These tractors were developed jointly, with Ursus
engineers spending three years in Czechoslovakia. This was
the result of an agreement signed between Ursus and Zetor in
August 1963."

secon: post #: 33494 - Alex Dyba wrote:
"I quite liked the yellow colour. The Zetor 8011 and Ursus
C-385 were virtually identical. Why? Because they were
developed jointly by Ursus and Zetor in the late 1960s.
Ursus engineers were sent from Poland to Czechoslovakia to
work together. The result was what I consider to be the
second most important tractor ever made (after the Ferguson
TE20) because it was a design ahead of its time and still
looks modern today. The engine and front axle (4WD models)
were made in Czechoslovakia, while the front axle (2WD
models), gearbox & rear axle were made in Poland. (I don't
know who made the cab). The Zetor 8011 entered production
first (in 1969) followed by the Ursus C-385 (1970). There
were three things that I preferred about the Ursus compared
to the Zetor. The doors opened towards the rear, which meant
that it was easier to get in and out of the cab, plus you
could drive with the doors open in hot weather. The Ursus
headlamps were mounted on short stalks, which not only
looked nicer, but was safer because it made the tractor look
wider in the dark. (These were dropped in favour of Zetor
style lights when the improved 902 model was launced in
1981). Finally, the front axle on 2WD models originally had
suspension on both models, but Zetor made this an extra cost
option in 1976."

So now U will know, why I was talking about Ursus style cab
- becuse of the way that door can be openned.

From now U will know much more about Ursus and Zetor, have a
nice time durring FarmPhoto watching and posting ;-)
