Called the Palesse MS-350, it appears to be a larger, more modern and more powerful successor to the 2U250A and 2U280A models, and while there’s much we don’t know about the newcomer we do know that it’s powered by a 12-litre 350hp Mercedes-Benz engine.

The most striking visible feature is the cab, which lifts and rotates through 180 degrees to provide the operator with good visibility when working with rear-mounted kit.

Headquartered at Gomel, in the Republic of Belarus, Gomselmash is a household name in eastern Europe where it sells Palesse-branded combines, self-propelled forage harvesters and mowers, cultivation kit and cotton and potato harvesters.

These are not only found in distant destinations such as Argentina, Brazil, China, Kazakhstan and Russia, but also closer to home in Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

It is difficult to predict whether we will ever see an MS-350 in western Europe? However, Gomselmash is a regular exhibitor at Agritechnica and SIMA, two shows that are back on the agenda again next year. Perhaps the company is planning to bring a model to one of these international events?
