Monster from Minsk

A decade ago, the Minsk Tractor Works (MTW) launched the 300hp 3022. And it seems with some success because the firm claims 4,000 units have since been delivered. Then, in 2013, the Minsk-based company launched the Cat-powered 350hp 3522, which uses the same hydro-mechanical powershift. Currently the most powerful model in the price list, so far over 1,500 have been delivered, over 400 of which were to the home market of Belarus. Pleasantly surprised by the numbers, the company decided to take power to the next level, and at Agritechnica stunned visitors with the 466hp 4522 concept.
