Subject: MTZ 1220 after some use.


I spent some hours in one working headlands on our Cabbage field's. The cultivators need 24' to do a nice job of turning, so it has been my job to make the headland big enough for them.

As to the cab,
Likes

Air works really good but it was only 70° here. But I just had it turned to the lowest setting so I feel it will work good on our 85° days.
I looked to try and find a spot I could see daylight thru, I did not see any at this time.
I did notice that all glass is flat, so replacement will be cheap and any local glass shop can cut you a piece.

Dislikes or maybe just annoying.....

Hand throttle location is not the best if you need to change engine speed a lot. But any farmer could modify it as the knob screws on and an extension could be added. That does not distract me from likeing this tractor more every time I drive it.

Now to another observation.
Boris drives and shifts the same as the TD-95D in the picture.. The driver of the 95D wants to try it on his planter and we will just as soon as we get to a field that has no rocks. If it works well and he likes driving it we will make a rock box for it for next year.
edit....darn auto spell on smart phone

Is this the tractor you were plowing with?
How much HP does it have and is it a 4 or 6 cyld. engine?

I put both on the plow to break them in for 15 hours each.

They are rated at 112 pto hp and have a 4 cylinder engine with turbo and air to air intercooler. Engine is 290 cu in.

What did you have too do too make the wheels work on the NH tractor, or did it cone that way. Don't think I can remember ever seeing on quite like that.

It is called mudder option. Came that way from factory. We have 9 mudders and have had very good luck with them.
If the MTZ's work as good as they are I will be happy.

Cab noise. Not bad. I have no idea how to describe it but after 4 hours today I did not have a headache or noise in my ears. I had the volume on my phone set the same as I listen to it in my pickup.

60" tread.. I have no idea as they are set on 72" rear and 71.5" on front. I will check in the manuel and post it.

Shifting it shifts not fast as in, you have to feel it to put it in gear. But for what I want to do with them, shifting will be fine. It shifts no worse that out TD-95D's. Some of them are approaching 8000 hours on a dry single disk clutch. The 1220's have a dual dry disk clutch.

I've sat in a 1220 drove it around a yard a little bit.  I know they're basic but they do have a lot of iron built into them compared to say some of the imports from south Korea Italy or India.


I also didn't care for the throttle lever position,  The cab was louder compared to a more $$$$ tractor of that hp of course but its probably inline with other lower cost tractors of different colors.   I'm not sure about that trans for my use. I'd have to demo one for haying (square baling)but for cutting hay, raking, and tillage work its fine just select a gear and go. I think that has 14 forward gears??

I think I took a video when I drove that 1220 I also drove a 1523 they 150hp model with the 6cyl. and different cab. I see if I can find it as it was on my old phone.

How is the visibility out of the cab, very important to me.

Visibility - in general fine or specifically for loader work? I checked and the video I took was the 150hp model which had a bit nicer cab 6cly. motor and was a quieter vs the 1220 model.

Really you have to go and drive one to get the feel of it. If you're current tractors are idk even say like a $$$ premium 15 year old JD7410 you will be disappointed in the cab , options and noise of this 1220. However compared to say an economy model JD 6130d ... well that's different the MTZ 1220 is probably quieter and heavier built. Depends on what you're look'n for as for a durable, simple tractor the MTZ fine. That's what these are aimed for farms that may have requirements for a more basic lower cost machine that still can be serviced on farm with out all the emission components or electronic transmission controls to worry about. I know they are odd ball over here but there is 100,000's of them working in other parts of the world.

Could you post that video of the 150 HP model. I like the looks of that tractor and I do have a use for one that size.

Yeah I guess so to YouTube. There are lots on there already too, some maybe spec'd out differently then what they ship here. These you can get several different trans options, front PTO, reverse station controls etc. One trans options is a quad 4 type powershift - 4 ranges 4 powershifts. They also can turn them up to 175hp if you like.

To get the power on the ground for pulling you'd need duals on the back. I've seen them sell in the US on the online auction new. I think it was last fall. Just Google it.

Here's one video of the cab Below. These have more electronics on the engine vs the 1220. I believe they use a bosch sysyem to meet tier 3 emissions over here.

I notice they offer a track option on some models. Negative of most models is the slow road speed they have.

You mean slow with tracks?

I believe on wheels the 1220 and below have a 40km road gear. The 1523 (150-175hp) is rated a bit slower like 35kms top speed. My old belarus 825 is faster than my old case tractors as it does 23 mph but my Valtra is the fastest I have @ 42 km /25mph. But yeah if your need a 50km road speed they don't have it.

I met without tracks, Only one mode had 42kph, the rest were 35 or slower per hour. To me todays tractors should do 25mph.

Yeah I hear what you're saying going from my older 1970's Case's to my tractor that does 42KMH sure made a differance on my field farthest away. But a lot of brands still only offer a 30km trans. for a base transmission.
