Yes Metlaki the Belarus was quite a popular tractor back a few years ago (mainly due to their price, compared with the tradional brands of Massey, JD, Case IH, etc).

However they were quite unreliable, so what you saved when you initially bought the tractor, you usually spent in repairs!

There was a local dealer who handled them but has since closed down. There was even a Belarus forage harvester operated by a local farmer / contractor, which was always broken down too!

I drove a Belarus 920 FWA tractor doing some discing for a farmer in the early 1990's & that was an experience, I can tell you!
