— We conducted this competition among consumers of agricultural materiel, — said Vadim Pronin, Director of FGBU Povolzhskaya MIS, — Evaluation of the machines was carried out in four main criteria: quality of implementation of engineering process, reliability, availability of service and price. Survey was the main polling instrument. Let it be a little old-fashioned way of investigating the public opinion, but it gives the most independent and transparent results. It excludes the possibility of improving the results, what is possible in case of on-line voting, which we faced during organizing the competition in 2009. The victory of the Rostselmash machines in nominations The best grain harvester and The best forage materiel was expected.

The detailed results indicate that we have chosen the right way" — said Zaur Dyshekov, Marketing Director of the Rostselmash Company.
