 Belarus hydraulics

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum. I am looking to buy a Belarus 525 from and older gentleman here in Jersey. The tractor only has 200 hours on it, and I am looking to use it for row crop work.
My one concern is about the hydraulics, I have seen a lot of posts saying that they leak alot. Has anyone had any luck fixing them? I have an organic certification on my land, and it could be a problem if inspectors see leaking oil all over the place.
thanks,
Barry

Barry,

Unless the tractor is currently leaking, I wouldn't worry much about it.

Seals are generally simple to replace, and it's not necessary to replace them with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. Any seal with the proper specs will do the job, and probably perform better than the original Belarus parts.

It is true that the Belarus tractors have trouble with oil leaks, but most of these issues are rather easy to address -- with the exception of the rear engine seal, which is a bugger to repair.

If oil leaks are a major concern, I'd look for something with a better reputation. The extra money spent initially will probably pay off for you in the end.

Joel

Barry, if you are planning on doing row crop work I would be more concerned about the weight of the Belarus than any leaking, seals are easy to fix.

It's hard to put a tractor on a diet.

The main reason the tractors from that part of the world never sold well to North American farmers was the weight issue, they are considerably heavier per horsepower than the industry norm. This leads to heavy soil compaction.

They are very popular for things like forestry work, or utility or chore work though, things like snow removal or pulling wagons and such.

Best of luck.

Thanks Guys,
I decided not to buy the tractor after going and looking at it yesterday, it was just way too large for what I want to use it for, and it wasn't in as good of shape as I originally thought.
Looks like I'll just keep my New Holland instead, maybe throw a little money into it to set it up for what I need.

Barry, if you're serious about both organic (low or no till) and row crop, look around for an old row crop machine like an Allis Chalmers or such.

If your land is flat you can get a 'widow-maker' (narrow front end) row crop machine for buttons usually, some of them are even setup for a cultivator and such belly mounted which makes field work really easy for beginners. The implement is in front & below your feet, not behind you.

Best of luck.
