KAMAZ vehicles were presented at the International Exhibition Agrovolga 2022 that finished at the exhibition center Kazan Expo.

This year, the international agroindustrial exhibition gathered 415 companies from 42 Russian regions, as well as from Turkey, Belarus, South Korea, Australia and the Netherlands. The producers of agricultural machinery and spare parts presented over one hundred units of equipment. Opening the event, Marat Zyabbarov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan – Minister of Agriculture and Food, noted that Agrovolga was a unique event for agriculture not only of Tatarstan, but also of Russia. The exhibition, as usual, had a rich business program. Key experts discussed urgent topics.

The presence of KAMAZ PTC on the market of the Russian agricultural complex is of strategic importance. The company renders significant support to the agricultural and other sectors of economy. At its exhibition stand, the top Russian truck maker demonstrated a KAMAZ-45143-48 (6×4) dump truck. The vehicle alone or as part of a road train is intended for transportation of various bulk cargoes, including agricultural ones, except hard rock and cobblestone.

The base model of the chassis is KAMAZ-65115-48 with payload of 12,000 kg and maximum gross vehicle weight up to 22,400 kg. The vehicle is equipped with a 300 hp diesel engine of the Euro 5 emission standard, a mechanical 9-speed gearbox and a fuel tank for 500 litres.

The platform of the dump truck is metal with two-side hydraulic dumping, side flaps and an opening rear flap. The cab is all-metal, two- or three-seat, front tilt, over engine, soundproof and thermally insulated. There is one sleeping berth. The base tipping trailer NEFAZ-8560-02 is side-dumping and has a 15 cbm platform. The platform dump angle is 45°.



Last Saturday, the crews of the racing team KAMAZ-master started their way to Astrakhan where the international rally Silk Way is to launch on the sixth of July.

Eduard Nikolaev and Dmitry Sotnikov will pilot new racing trucks KAMAZ-435091 of the K5 line. Andrey Karginov’s crew will drive the time-tested model KAMAZ-43509. Besides, impassability will be challenged by the crew of Sergey Kupriyanov who will perform on a KAMAZ truck fueled by gas and diesel mixture. It should be recalled that the reigning winner of the Silk Way Rally among truck racers is Dmitry Sotnikov’s crew.

The rally Dakar 2022, as well as test rides in Astrakhan Oblast and the Archeda Baja held in May gave the team many different technical ideas for implementation. There were changes in a number of characteristics of the vehicles. Each truck in the Silk Way 2022 will have to undergo its own series of tests. It is important to study and test as many engineering solutions as possible. The route from Astrakhan to Moscow will show what innovations will prove to be good and be applied in the future.

As soon as the team came home from the Dakar, they started preparing for the Silk Way. The third racing truck of the K5 line was made in the team’s production shop for the start of the Archeda Baja held in Volgograd Oblast from May 19 to 22. As part of the joint project with PJSC GAZPROM, a new gas and diesel truck was made to carry Sergey Kupriyanov’s crew. In May, the truck was tested in a racing environment.

The team is supporting imports phase-out. It continues working on long-term strategic projects. The promising activities include the manufacture of racing trucks with power units on alternatives.

Scheduled from July 6 to 16, the 10-stage route of the rally Silk Way 2022 will stretch from Astrakhan to Moscow across Russia. The racing track will tie several Russian regions. And the Republic of Dagestan and the Chechen Republic will for the first time host a rally raid competition. The route is laid on terrain of various types – from Astrakhan sands to mountainous specials of the Caucasus.

The total length of the route is 4,500 kilometers, 2,800 of which are specials. Pre-start events of the rally – administrative and technical checks – are to be held on July 6. The starting podium is planned for July 7 in Astrakhan, after the racers pass a short qualification speedy section in an urban area, on the bank of the Volga River. On the 16th of July, the winners of the race will podium in Moscow.



Within the frameworks of the International Industrial Exhibition INNOPROM 2022 that has opened in Yekaterinburg today, KAMAZ is presenting two models of the new Compass family – a refrigerator and a tow truck with a loader crane – at its stand.

At the beginning of 2022, KAMAZ introduced Compass models from the new line of medium-tonnage 4×2 trucks to the Russian market. These are delivery vehicles which are chiefly designed for operation in urban and suburban areas, but, at the same time, can be used for long haul service. The Compass chassis can hold a wide range of superstructures: various versions of vans (insulated, goods, refrigerated vans), dropside trucks with loader cranes, refuse vehicles, multilifts, tow trucks, hydraulic lifts, etc. The vehicle boasts soft ride, high visibility from the cab, and, with all that, it is quite maneuverable, with a little turning radius, which is essential for running in urban terrain and in yards crammed with vehicles.

The new project of KAMAZ started with two models: the Compass 9 with GVW of 9.5 tonnes and the Compass 12 with GVW of 11.99 tonnes. Today’s KAMAZ stand shows two representatives of the new line exactly on the Compass 9 chassis. Thus, the visitors of the company’s exposition can see a refrigerated vehicle meant for transportation of goods, which require particular temperature conditions. The body of the van is made of monolithic sandwich panels with heat transfer coefficient less than 0.4, polyurethane is used as an insulator. Inside and outside lining is cladded metal. The refrigerating unit of the chassis helps keep the temperature in the van from -20 to +6Cо. The payload of the vehicle is 3.3 tonnes, and the capacity is 12 europallets. It is important that a client can customize the van equipping the vehicle with cooling machinery, tail lifts by different producers.

The second exhibit on the Compass 9 chassis displayed at the KAMAZ stand is a tow truck featuring a straight sliding platform with a winch and a crane loader NR 811 T2S. The payload of the vehicle is 3,000 kg, the payload of the crane at the minimum crane radius of 2.5 m is 4,060 kg, the maximum radius of the loader crane is 6 m.

Both vehicles are based on the KAMAZ-43089 chassis (Compass 9) equipped with a turbocharged fuel-saving four-stroke-cycle diesel engine generating 154 hp. Its cubic capacity is 3.76 l, the fuel tank is meant for 200 l. The engine corresponds to the Euro 5 emission standard. The gearbox is mechanical, six-speed. The suspension is leaf, on two multilift springs and hydraulic shock absorbers. The refrigerator and the tow vehicle with loader crane are equipped with a wide comfortable night cab. The suspension of the cab is four-point, torsion-bar in the front, and on rubber spring elements in the rear. The driver’s comfort is ensured with an adjustable steering column, cruise control, air conditioner, power windows, steering wheel audio control.
