The sale of tractors in MLC increasingly closer

January 15, 2021 Written by Yerelys Gil
After the Triumph of the Revolution, great advances were made in Cuba in the mechanization of agriculture. However, the availability and technical condition of the tractors was affected by the currency limitations of the “special period”. 80.17% of the existing equipment has more than 15 years of operation. The vast majority of this equipment has obsolete technologies, and its main components are missing or very deteriorated.
Our country has been making significant investments for the acquisition of modern tractors mainly with the Minsk Tractor Plant (MTZ), manufacturers of the "Belarus" tractors, and with the New Holland Company. Both manufacturers are leaders in agricultural machinery and offer a wide range of tractors that can be adapted to the needs of all farmers and contractors around the world. Farmers in all countries are attracted to these tractors, above all for their reliability in operation, ease of handling, availability for maintenance and reasonable prices.
ingles Through the importers Transimport and Maquimport, the Directorate of Purchase and Imports of EMSA (Wholesale Agricultural Supplies Company) has acquired ten tractors that will arrive in the country in February. Of these six Belarus and four New Holland, from Belarus and Brazil respectively. Imported Belarus tractors are divided into two models: the BELARUS 80.1 (4x2) class 1.4 tractor with an 81-horsepower engine; BELARUS 82.1 (4x4) class 1.4 tractor with 81 horsepower engine, both models with cab. While the New Holland tractors belong to the model TT4.55 and TT4.75 (4X4) with a 36 horsepower engine. Both brands are designed to carry out different agricultural jobs, both with suspended, semi-suspended and towed machines, as well as transport jobs. This product will be marketed by GELMA in the network of national stores destined to the management of sale in Freely Convertible Currency (MLC) and can be purchased by independent producers associated with productive forms, as well as state companies. In the case of independent producers, they must submit the documentation that accredits them as a producer and for land tenure. The distribution of tractors by provinces will depend on the demands each of the shopping centers receives in said territories.

From the resurgence of the economic-financial blockade, the shortage of the commercialization networks of the business system and taking into account the new modalities of trade in Freely Convertible Currency (MLC) that have been implemented in the country, which respond to the Strategy Economic and Social.
