Load capacity of KamAZ, depending on the modification
The load capacity of KamAZ varies depending on the modification. This car is not the leader in the transportation of the heaviest loads. However, it is very popular.
In the sixties the USSR badly needed machinesLoad capacity from eight to twenty tons on cheap diesel fuel. Automobile plants of that time could not fill this need. The government made a decision to build a new profile company. To build the plant, Naberezhnye Chelny was chosen in the Tatar SSR, because two navigable rivers pass through the city, a good motorway and a railway. The first car came off the main assembly line in mid-February 1976. It was a truck KAMAZ-5320.
A bit of history of Kama Automobile Plant
The initial project of the Kamsky automobileThe plant was supposed to produce 150,000 cars and 250,000 diesel engines a year. Machines were designed to play a significant role in the national economy of the country. The plant was designed not only by the leading organizations of the USSR, but also by experienced specialists from the US, FRG and France enterprises.
The first car was developed on the basis of twoZIL models using a motor designed at the Yaroslavl engine plant. The carrying capacity of KamAZ-5320 was 8 tons. He worked for a long time in Bashkortostan, and now he is on a well-deserved rest in the factory museum of KamAZ. The enterprise developed rapidly. Three years later a hundred-thousandth truck came off the assembly line. This fact was unprecedented not only for the USSR, but also for the world industry.
The nineties of the twentieth century were hard for the enterprise, however, as for the entire industry.By the beginning of the 21st century, KamAZ managementthe support of the governments of Tatarstan and Russia was able to turn the debt of the plant (one million rubles) into shares, which allowed to restore production and to approach the breakeven level of existence. Soon, the 1 600 000th car came off the assembly line. The load capacity of KamAZ remained unchanged. In the first year of the coming century, the enterprise received a substantial profit - about sixty million rubles. Kama Automobile Plant became interesting for the largest players of the market, intensive integration with other companies began.
Advantages of trucks KamAZ
To date, the Kamsky Automobile Plantis the leader of cargo engineering in the Russian Federation and the territory of the CIS countries, and also ranks thirteenth in the world in the list of leading manufacturers of heavy trucks. The management and specialists of the enterprise constantly develop new promising activities and participate in all projects, such as rally. This trend was inherent in KamAZ. So, back in 1975, large-scale tests of road trains from semitrailer tractors KamAZ-5410, the carrying capacity of which was 14.5 tons, and the curb weight - more than 10.5 tons.
To date, heavy trucks of the Kama Automobile Plant are produced in various versions.These are dump trucks, truck tractors, trucks,special machinery and special purpose vehicles. The enterprise continues to remain in its niche, which is determined by the capacity of KamAZ. Technique, coming down from the conveyor of the enterprise, has a different wheel formula: 4 * 2, 4 * 4, 6 * 6, 6 * 4 and 8 * 4. The latest cars can transfer more cargo. For example, the capacity of the KamAZ truck with a wheel formula of 8 * 4 is already 25.5 tons. These machines are able to solve large-scale tasks in short periods of time. They are most in demand in construction, industry and agriculture. Their distinctive characteristics: the ability to overcome long distances, easy to follow off-road, reliability, ease of operation and unpretentiousness. The most demanded dump trucks with rear unloading. They are all-metal, bucket, box-shaped, and are controlled by a hydraulic mechanism from the cabin.

To date, the most popular modelKamAZ - 65115, the carrying capacity of which is 14.5 tons. It has wide capabilities and powerful equipment. The body of this dump truck holds more than ten cubic meters, which allows the car to easily and quickly solve any construction or industrial tasks. This truck works fine with a trailer in the structure of road trains. Available in various standard modifications, as well as individual orders.
