MTZ Tractors - Current Models / Re: New mtz reviews

Arie515 yes, agree that financing is smoke and mirrors, however it does help get in the customers. Kinda like a pretty lady giving out rotten apples. Temptation may draw you in. . . . . . .

Damengineer: in the past I've been able to get ahold of previous owners of machinery purchased via the dealer. Would you be able to do that at all to find out why they split such a low housed tractor around it's first oil change? Would there be any chance they forgot the throwout bearing from factory? Also what about just fitting in a 12volt gear reduction starter and eliminating the series parallel switch and wiring your batteries parallel. It would make a simple system even simpler and more foolproof. Both batteries would be charged at the same time and you would have lots of amperage for all your electrical devices. Hopefully you can get your white Russian up and going trouble free relatively soon. It's sure nice to hear that the dealers are helping out, and not just looking to make another sale like the bigger bigger shops are nowadays.

Haymaker: sounds about like the Deere I've got leased now. 6 service calls in 10 months. All for switches and sensors. I won't be owning this machine after the warranty is up that's for sure. Even the windshield wipers were controlled via the computer and wouldn't go off for 3 days.

Sorry I don't no how to capture the quotes, technology just douesnt interest me. The older I'm getting the simpler I like things. I'm just not back to running a donkey and cart yet, at least untill the kids are older and out of the house lol.

The 102 I let go 5 or 6 years ago. Can't remember what it had for gears anymore, but I do remember you had to put the gearshift all the way left and then jam it up for high range, and down for low range. Reverse was all the way right I think and down . . . . . Don't quote me on it tho. I used it for 2 years, and only put about 11.68$ into for a new heater switch. The pto was slipping pretty bad at that point, and clutch was on its way out when a neighbor offered me what I had paid for it. Last I heard it's still sitting in his driveshed awaiting those repairs. As for the shuttle shift, yeah they are nice. I've run enough older stuff tho that it a deal breaker tho. I see on the new 952 they have a mechanical left hand reverser anyway. Dry clutch can be good or bad, it depends on operator. One fellow around the block always rode his and used it as a brake - they lasted 200hrs. Another fellow up the road just had his 1st one replaced in a Deere 5420 2wd loader tractor at 8000hrs. It's unfortunate that belarus and some other eastern block brands kinda left the scene in north America for 15yrs. It allowed the Asian tractors to get a foothold and gain their market share. It may be a tough road to get back what they once had. Perhaps if they ever increase their warranty, have free loader promotions, and financing incentives like the other ag tractor makers the horizon will get brighter. It's hard to compete with all that stuff and keep costs down I realize. It seems only the diehards will run a belarus now. I was really hoping for more feedback from new owners than seem to be replying. I no they gotta be out there somewhere . . . . . . .

That was my concern. Besides last week's sales on auction time I can only recall a used 1523 on the agdealer last year. Now I see they have some new 2019 models listed. Was nobody buying up the 2014 models first imported? We had a 611 that was ok, and a 102 that was quite decent as well. If I can ever get out from this green machine I'd definitely consider another belarus if the new ones held up like my old girls did. Zetor has started to price themselves out of the market, and I just read were they've now laid off 40% of their staff. I did see that model you mentioned for 38000$, seems like a decent buy if everything Was working on it and a fellow had some spare money to spend.

MTZ Tractors - Current Models / New mtz reviews

Good morning and happy New Year's every body. Was just wondering if there is any new reviews out there on mtz tractors or if people could share their experiances. All I can seem to find on Google is a few years old. Wondering how they are holding up vs the older belarus units, or if many are even selling anymore in north america. Would they hold up well to 1000hrs use yearly feeding cattle, Etc?
