MAZ will create the off-road bus

Designers of the Minsk automobile works have received a task for development of the new bus for the African market which could be used in the suburban message on roads with a bad covering and in the most severe conditions of operation.

consider the African market on the Minsk automobile works as very perspective. And MAZ expects to advance not only trucks and special equipment, but also buses in Africa.

in Minsk has been presented Two years ago first "African" - the bus MAZ 131020. The concept of this project was based on five "whales": the reliable frame chassis, a possibility of transportation of goods on a roof, simplicity of a design, good maintainability, low price - such demands were made by the potential customer.

in own way of the unique bus has formed Base to the chassis of the well-known truck MAZ-5337, but with the strengthened forest bridges (distribution of full weight on axes - 6500 13.000 kg). The engine - "rare" turbodiesel YaMZ-236BE2 of 250 hp (Euro-2) and with a maximum torque of 1078 Nanometers. The transmission - mechanical 9-staged Fast Gear 9JS135TA. Many call this bus off-road, but the drive at it only back.

Design for the customer was secondary therefore the car has turned out not only brutal, but also a little archaic by sight. However, the flat windshield, two-piece, a powerful front bumper (by the way, from the SUV MAZ-6317) and the cargo platform on a roof is requirements of the customer too.

has led Application upon the demand of the customer of the V-shaped YaMZ-236BE2 engine having impressive dimensions to the fact that designers have been forced to make a high podium over a motor compartment and to respectively increase roof height - from here this "hump" in a forward part. But the driver of average height without problems gets on the workplace, walking on a motor casing (it was necessary to refuse a driver's door to provide the maximum rigidity of a body).

In inside of the bus 44 places for sitting, including one near the driver. The general passenger capacity - 65 people. In salon three steps, floor height over road level a variable - from 1087 yes conduct 1131 mm. Over the back bridge a floor is a little raised. Swing doors. Overall dimensions MAZ 131020: length - 11.450, width - 2550, height - 3360 mm. The equipped mass of the bus - 11.400 kg, full - 19.500 kg. Luggage carrier loading capacity on a roof - 3000 kg. A pendant - spring with stabilizers of cross stability. The brake system - pneumatic, there are ABS and ASR.

For some reasons MAZ 131020 and remained in Minsk. If we correctly managed to interpret hints of factory workers, then this machine was created under requirements of the concrete tender in one of the African countries, but as a result was inferior to the competitor and it was unclaimed. Today MAZ is ready to sell this bus - already some time information on him is posted in the section "Automotive Equipment with (Second-hand) Run" on the official site of the enterprise. Price
