Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units to supply tractors to Pakistan

01 june 2011 года

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units signed four contracts to deliver 48 tractors Belarus-311 to Pakistan, BelTA learnt from the company.

Before signing the contracts, small-sized tractors Belarus-311 underwent a series of tests in real operating conditions in Pakistan. The tests were held as part of promotion events carried out by the plant and Pakistani business partners in the provinces of Punjab and Sindh in March and April this year. Bobruisk equipment was demonstrated in more than 10 cities in central and southern Pakistan (Bakkar, Layyah, Sahiwal, Sargodha, Multan, Faisalabad, Okara, etc.).

During the tests Belarus-311 operated on different soils, with virtually all kinds of agricultural attachments popular among local farmers. A group of specialists of the plant and Minsk Tractor Works were present at tests and promo events to ensure a high level of organization and direct communication with potential customers.

Such communication gave a new impetus to the work on adaptation of the Belarusian tractors to the requirements and operation conditions of South Asia. After the tests, an array of engineering changes has been suggested to meet the needs of Pakistani customers. In particular, the diameter of the backward wheels has been increased and the head lights have been built-in into the jacket.

The plant started producing Belarus-311 tractor in Q4 2010. This model has been designed especially for the South Asian region. This modification has also been delivered to Afghanistan. The interest in its purchase is also shown by North Africa and Central Asia.
