Following his appearance here last week, Flickr’s Jakeof_ is back with another beautifully recreated Soviet oddity. This is a Belarus MTZ-52 tractor and approximately 200,000 were built from the mid ’60s until production ceased in the mid ’80s. Powered by a 4.7 litre four-cylinder diesel engine the all-wheel-drive MTZ-52 made around 50bhp, giving it a top speed of about… 17mph. Don’t worry though, we’ve sent the Elves out to try to find something fast to rebalance the blog a bit later in the week! You can see more of the Belarus at Jakeof_’s photostream – click the link above to make the jump.
