US farmers interested in Belarusian tractors

More than a hundred Belarusian tractors are planned to be exported to the countries of North America.

On March 13, Canadian and American farmers visited MTZ plant. The guests wanted to get familiar with Belarus' electromechanical equipment. It is considered to be economical and easy to maintain, but at the same time characterized by high performance.

Belarus' MTZ plant earlier worked with the countries of North America and actively. Supplies reached thousands of units per year. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, this figure fell to a minimum.

Now, after a break, the countries are going to resume cooperation.

Dave McHenry, farmer (Canada):
I have a farm in Canada. We have been working with MTZ equipment for a long time, and the quality of the products is encouraging. Personally, I'm interested in tractors up to 150hp focusing on gardens and vineyards. There are people who would like to buy more powerful machines for agricultural crops.

Fyodor Domotenko, General Director of Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ):
We discussed two matters, this is machinery of up to 150hp. The second topic is energy-saturated tractors, with a capacity of 350hp or more, with electric transmission. These tractors have been recently test-driven. We are ready to manufacture this equipment and this group of dealers are interested in this topic.
