On February 23, the four millionth tractor was presented at MTZ factory. 

It became the MTZ 2022 (212 hp) model.

It is very symbolic that the production cycle of the BELARUS tractor with serial number # 4 million

also ended on a special date 22.02.2022. 

According to numerologists, the deuce symbolizes harmony, love, friendship and diplomacy. 

And indeed it is. 

MTZ continues to confidently hold its position as the leader in the world tractor industry:

every tenth tractor in the world is the product of this factory. 

The vast majority of the plant's products are exported to more than 60 countries around the world.

The country of Belarus suffered greatly during World War II. About 25% (!) of Belarus

population was wiped out. In the capital city of Minsk 90% of all buildings were left

in ruins.Therefore, Belarus is cherishing the memories of the war.

May 9th is the celebration day over Nazi Germany, and it’s one of the main holidays

in Belarus. Minsk Tractor Works invites surviving war veterans and factory employees

to a large orchestra display in front of the factory. This year 7 orchestras participated.

One of the dealer just sent this to us.

TSC stores is a chain of country hardware stores, operating about 50 outlets in Canada.

They sell implement paint for John Deer, Case, Ford and other major manufacturers.

Curious why they put MTZ 952 tractor on John Deere and Caterpillar implement paint...

Should we send them a bill for royalties or maybe send them a payment for free advertising ?  :-)

Continuation of the MTZ 1220 review. Interesting.

May 17,  2016

MTZ - Belarus made tractors - MTZ 1220 interesting discussion on a mjor AG forum.

When a manufacturer is trying to promote their product, customers tend to treat it with some skepticism.

Farmers would much rather listen to the opinion of their neighbors and actual users of the product.

That’s why I thought I should share some posts from actual farmer in NY state, who acquired 2 x MTZ 1220.

I think it’s an interesting read.

March 19, 2016

We know that Belarus made tractors are tough as nails, and working at many fields.  

But as an ice breaker ? That’s a first one for me.

Remote Russian village was disconnected from mainland few days ago, and someone needed to clear the road.

The good quality of the clip is enhanced through great cinematographic shooting angles.

Thank you again for visiting us at Agri-Trade.

The show was extremely busy for us.

We were 2-3 people at the stand, busy non-stop.

Run out of cards and pamphlets for some models.

Apparently, there is a big interest in simple, affordable, reliable tractors, without DEF liquid, or too much complicated computers/electronics.

The MTZ Competitive Advantage

We realize that it would be a huge time investment for you to do a comprehensive tractors review, in order to compare features/specs/price of what is out there. Therefore, to help you out, we provide the attached market study. It is not scientific, because of the huge variety of available options, features, price programs, promotions etc. Yet, we hope it will be a useful reference tool.
