MINSK, 7 September (BelTA) – Tractors made by the Belarusian tractor manufacturer MTZ and a harvester made by the Belarusian agricultural machinery manufacturer Gomselmash are on trial in the agricultural branch Dyagili of Minsk Motor Plant (MMZ trademark) in Myadel District, Minsk Oblast. The vehicles are powered by MMZ engines, BelTA has learned.
The trial conditions are not simple. The local fields have a complicated terrain, this is why the agricultural machines have to demonstrate great performance and durability. MMZ engines have successfully been able to do the job for years already.
A D-262.3SA engine powering an MTZ 3522 tractor has been on trial since 2018. It has already worked for nearly 3,500 hours. The tractor is used for transportation and ploughing.
A D-262.1S2 engine powering a KZS10 harvester has been on trial since 2021. It has worked for nearly 600 hours. The harvester performs as per specifications.
The agricultural branch Dyagili has started trialing a D-245S5 engine powering an MTZ 1025.7 tractor this year. The engine is compliant with the Stage 5 emissions standard and has worked for about 600 hours.
All these MMZ engines go through regular maintenance and systemic expert evaluations. The company's design office representatives constantly monitor the state and the performance of the engines powering the machines. The specialists say the engine work virtually without any hitches.
According to Aleksandr Voroshkevich, director of the agricultural branch Dyagili, Belarusian machines and MMZ motors are without a rival.
A new grain harvester made by Gomselmash is on trial in the MMZ's agricultural branch Svetlaya Niva.
The agricultural enterprises run by the MMZ are busy finishing the harvesting campaign and preparing the fields for sowing. Dyagili intends to sow 600 hectares with winter crops soon while Svetlaya Niva will sow 657 hectares, including 220ha already sown with winter wheat, with triticale, rye, and barley.
