The low-powered three-cylinder engine MMZ-3LD met a strong interest. A company from Russia's Vladimir Oblast said it intends to replace Chinese engines with Belarusian ones as part of the small tractors it makes. The MMZ engines boast lower prices while the quality and aftersales service are on par with the world analogs. Representatives of the Russian company believe they will be able to greatly reduce the prime cost of their tractors and secure a larger share of the market.
A St Petersburg-based mini loader manufacturer has already tested MMZ-3LD engines as part of its products this year and intends to buy a commercial batch of MMZ engines this year.
An Italian company that makes utility vehicles also showed interest in the MMZ engines. The Belarusian engines can help localize its products in Russia.
