KAMAZ specialists took part in the XVII Interregional specialized exhibition «Construction industry of the North. Energy. Housing and utilities-2020», held on February 26-28 in Yakutsk.

The company’s exposition presented the Ko-505B vacuum machine on the KAMAZ-65115 chassis. The model is an excellent solution for urban management due to the optimal combination of technical characteristics of the chassis and special construction. The equipment is designed for vacuum collection, transportation and discharge of liquid waste that does not contain explosives and combustible substances. The machine performs vacuum cleaning of cesspits and sewer wells, and transports waste to the places where it is disposed of. KO-505B is designed for use on different types of roads, including dirt roads in the field, at ambient temperatures from -20C to +40C.

The special equipment includes a tank, a pump with a vacuum-discharge system, pencil cases for laying hoses, pneumatic and electric systems. The capacity of the tank, which is made of steel 092GS and reinforced with stiffeners, is 12 cubic meters. To extinguish hydraulic shocks, breakwaters are installed inside it. The process of cleaning wells, sedimentation tanks and pits is carried out under the influence of vacuum, emptying – by gravity or air pressure from a vacuum pump. A reliable vacuum pump with a capacity of 360 cubic meters per hour allows filling the tank in ten minutes and provides a depth of up to 4 m.

The machine is equipped with a sound control system for the tank filling level and automatically activates the chassis signal when a certain level is reached. In addition, modern suction hoses with a total length of six meters have a quick-release connection, which greatly facilitates the work of the operator.

The KO-505B vacuum machine on the KAMAZ-65115 chassis presented at the exhibition is one of the most popular and popular machines in the utility segment due to its ease of maintenance, reliability and affordable price.

A new load-lifting system on the аssembly line


A new load-lifting system is being launched on the аssembly line for KAMAZ cabs of the new model range.

Previously, this position was a constant congestion: the cabin was hung on a crane beam, and the assembly was started by six people who attached the necessary parts, often staying in each others’ way. The frame moved to the next position only after 30 minutes.

Technologists decided to embroider the bottleneck: instead of one position, there are three positions with two people on each, and the conveyor now moves faster. The work became easier thanks to the new load-lifting system. Immediately after the logistics team sends the forthcoming cabin to the starting position, it is «inside» a special frame of the lift. While the pickers «form» the exterior of the lower belt, the system reliably holds the load at the desired height.

A batch of grain carriers on the KAMAZ-65207 chassis was delivered to the Transmorflot LLC shipping company


A batch of grain carriers on the KAMAZ-65207 chassis was delivered to the Transmorflot LLC shipping company.

The truck is equipped with a Daimler OM457LA (Euro-5) engine with an exhaust gas neutralization system (AdBlue), a ZF 16S2220 gearbox, and air suspension drive axles. The platform with increased rigidity has a volume of 32 m3 and is equipped with a tent frame with a winding device and a fixed platform. For a tighter fit, the platform sides have rubber seals.

The internal size of the platform, made of 09G2S steel grade — 7200x2460x1800 mm. Side locks are mechanical, open manually. The lifting device of the platform is hydraulic, driven by a pump through a power take-off box. The electropneumatic lift control is located in the cab.
