The Luch MB-1 walk-behind tractor is in the same line with several more modifications of this technique, which differ only in names, but are very similar both in appearance and in the design of all parts and assemblies. And the factory index is the same for all - "MB-1" (there is also an absolutely identical version, differing only in the shape of the fuel tank - "MB-5040").
The names for their products were chosen by manufacturers, many of which belonged to the military-industrial complex and the aviation industry. The manufacturer of the Luch MB-1 walk-behind tractor was the Perm Production Association Motorostroitel named after Sverdlov (now JSC UEC Perm Motors), a manufacturer of aircraft engines.
The eighties and nineties of the twentieth century were the time for this plant when its products "descended from heaven to earth." The range of manufactured equipment has been replenished with new models of gas turbine equipment designed to work as part of gas pumping units of compressor stations of main gas pipelines, gas turbine power plants.
And also, in the light of the general "fashion for conversion" - consumer goods, among which since 1985 was "Luch MB-1". In previous years, there was no point in producing motoblocks in the Soviet Union: there was no market demand for them. Private gardens were plowed and cultivated by collective farm tractors, either free of charge or for a reasonable fee. There was always a lot of gasoline and diesel fuel in the farms, and they cost mere pennies. The years of destruction of the previous agricultural system throughout the country - the second half of the 80s and all 90s - became the time of the spread of production and use of domestic motoblocks.
At present (more precisely, since the beginning of the 2000s), Luch walk-behind tractors and other non-core "small" equipment have been removed from the lists of products manufactured by the Perm plant: it again makes only turbojet aircraft engines and industrial gas turbines mechanisms. This is also a nationwide trend: the production of motoblocks has been abandoned everywhere at such enterprises.
However, many of the Luch MB-1 walk-behind tractors that were sold in the last century are not only in working order, but also work out season after season without serious breakdowns; pass from hand to hand, are considered a familiar household helper for families from different regions of Russia and the CIS. Not every mechanism is capable of demonstrating such durability in use.
The design of this technique is so versatile that analogues of the Luch MB-1 walk-behind tractor are still produced by the Chinese, as well as by several enterprises in Russia, which, under the guise of their own production, make these walk-behind tractors from the same Chinese parts and accessories.
Walk-behind tractor "Luch" Motor-block MB 5040 "Luch", of course, is very far from ideal. Although, all modifications of this walk-behind tractor are far from it. Many details require improvements, such as a muffler, which its owners change over time to a quieter one - the noise during operation really interferes with it.
