While Belarus tractors certainly don't have the long history that John Deere or Massey Ferguson does, Belarus tractors were introduced after WWII.  As the country was nearly destroyed in the war, the Soviet Union decided to build a tractor plant to not only provide jobs, but also to use in the rebuilding of the country.  Eventually these tractors were exported to other countries around the world where they were an inexpensive alternative to the other tractors available.

For those more familiar with North American built tractors, the Belarus tractor was a bit of an enigma.  They were built with simplicity in mind since many areas that used them did not have access to tools and equipment that would be needed for major repairs.

Having grown up on a small farm where we owned a Belarus tractor, I can say that they are truly unique.  It was a tall, narrow tractor with a cab and 4 wheel drive, and we bought it when it was about 10 years old, with 700 hours on it, and paid only about $6000. A comparable brand name tractor was easily double or triple that price.  We faced major challenges starting the tractor in the winter, and because our driveway was long and needed to be plowed during the winter, this posed some major transportation issues for us.  Eventually we sold it in favor of a Case tractor.

If you want to add a truly unique farm toy for your collection, a Belarus Diecast tractor will certainly fit right in.
