28 may 2013 года

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units has designed a tractor for the Cambodian market, BelTA learnt from the marketing department of the company.

Specialists of the company have developed a prototype model of Belarus-422.1 tractor taking into account the needs of the Cambodian market. The decision to develop the model has been taken by the management of the company after the visit of its delegation to the Cambodian company that showed interest in advancing Belarusian tractors to the market of this South-Eastern state.

In January 2013 the Bobruisk-based company shipped a batch of proprietary compact tractors Belarus 321 to Cambodia. After examining the abilities of the new equipment, Cambodian partners have compiled a list of requirements to the machinery to fully meet the needs of the local agrarians.

The new modification is based on Belarus-422.1 model. The cab is replaced with roll-over bars and a tent safety cage to meet the Cambodian weight and weather conditions requirements. The tractor is kitted out with a straight four-cylinder diesel engine.

The novelty has bigger wheels and tires and a number of other engineering changes.

The first model of the new modification has already been sent to Cambodia for tests. The second sample will be on display at the Minsk international agro-industrial expo Belagro 2013.

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units was founded in 1945. Since 1972 it has been part of Minsk Tractor Works. At present the company employs about 3,700 people. The company started manufacturing tractors in 2007. Today it offers nine main models and municipal vehicles based on them.

Apart from tractors Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units offers a large choice of components, parts for Belarus tractors made by Minsk Tractor Works as well as a large range of disk wheels and rims for tractors and agricultural machines.
