Belarus 250AS Review
Posted by GaPawn on 03/29/2010
I have abused my Belarus for 20 years. It does everything I need for it to and requires minimal maintenance. The castings tend to be soft, and the electrical system is not very good, but it is a heavy tractor that is a good value, considering its low cost. I would buy another.
Model year: 1989

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Cost, down pressure on hydraulics, the importer is GREAT for parts availability and VERY responsive, easy on fuel, the shuttle shift is nice once you are used to it, sitting way high in the air has advantages, did I mention the $$$ ;-)
Cons: Castings are soft, electrical sux, fit and finish are rough and rugged, dealer system is non-existant, controls are not conventional, sitting way high in the air makes it feel tippy, brakes are weak, this is not a tractor for someone who doesn't like to tinker or is fussy about details....oh, and then there is the whole soviet bloc/commie joke thing you gotta learn to deal with.....but don't let me talk you out of getting one!
