Belarus Tractors History
The trademark "Belarus" belongs to the Minsk Tractor Plant, which, according to experts, occupies from 8 to 10% of the agricultural machinery market. Serial production of MTZ-82.1 was mastered by the production association in the early 2000s.
In order to reduce costs, the management of the Minsk plant decided to modernize the MTZ-50 model and create an MTZ-80 on its basis. The first prototype of the tractor was assembled in a pilot production facility in 1970. After the successful completion of a two-year test cycle of the machine, preparations began for the serial production of the model, while work was underway to create an all-wheel drive version of the MTZ-82. The first machines of this series left the factory conveyor in 1974 and are produced to this day in different versions.
The need to modify the MTZ-82 arose in connection with the entry of the production of PO MTZ to international markets. Model 82.1 received a large, comfortable cab, providing the necessary level of operator safety.
In autumn 2008, the Minsk Tractor Plant opened a joint venture in the capital of Kyrgyzstan, which is engaged in SKD assembly of the described model. In 2015, "Belarus-82.1" took first place in the open competition "The best agricultural machine", which is annually held by the Ministry of Agriculture.
