They are Russian made.

Have seen quite a few on KIJI, however knew someone several years ago who had one. He was satisfied with it but did mention getting parts although not impossible was a pain.

Have never owned one though but do remember looking at the drive shaft for the four wheel drive setup and circumference was tiny compared to the 100 series Massey Ferguson or Fordson Major I am accustomed to.

Know there is new technology regarding metals but could never get over how small (circumference wise) that shaft was.

The frontaxle drive in the older Belarus models (the ones you see for sale here) are set upto transmit only 20% of the power so the build can be lighter.
There were a number of build quality issues with Balarus but I imagine that those surviving would have got past that.
Check that the hydraulics work properly and that there are no fuel injection issues.
