General Design Engineer of the plant Andrey Stasilevitch tells about features of the model:
- A tractor is represented in two versions – with front non-driving axle and front driving axle. We used the engine of Minsk Motor Plant with bearing case permitting to eliminate semi-frame, reduce overall dimensions of the tractor and to lower center of gravity. A new gearbox has been developed for this model.
The tractor is designed for various operations not only in agriculture but also in industry, construction, municipal services, loading and unloading operations. Advantages of the model are undeniable. A high ground clearance permits to overcome different kinds of obstacles without damaging the crops. Due to wide range of gearbox there is an ability to select an optimal travel speed. A high lifting capacity of rear linkage and two-speed PTO shaft expand opportunities for using the tractor with various units.
By the way, this model opens a line of compact tractors for markets of Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Egyptian farmers will test the machines the first, because after the exhibition new "Belarus" tractors will be send to Egypt for sale.
