The Belarusian carrier Janstrong after a month of testing the main tractor KAMAZ-54901 on the roads of Europe intends to purchase about 20 such vehicles.
The experiment was observed not only in the cargo company Janstrong and in LLC ParadAvto (the official dealer of KAMAZ in Belarus), but also in other companies. As part of the first flight of the test operation, the driver Pavel Sinkevich drove a KAMAZ-54901 truck from Belarus to Germany and from there brought the cargo to Naberezhnye Chelny, covering 8000 kilometers. The test drive was continued by two of his colleagues. Janstrong for a month drove the KAMAZ-54901 two circles on the autobahns of Germany and the Czech Republic, announced the end of the test run of the car and full satisfaction with its characteristics. «Our company transports various goods, but many of them are delivered to the conveyor of industrial enterprises. Speed is very important for us here. It’s great that the car did not let us down, and our customers were satisfied in the end», – said the manager of Janstrong Valentina Taranda on the Belarusian specialized portal Infotrans.
The company’s management said that it is ready to buy about 20 such cars today. The KAMAZ-54901 is equipped with a R6 engine, an automatic transmission from ZF Friedrichshafen AG and, which is especially valuable over long distances, a set of fuel tanks with a total volume of 1400 liters. Janstrong plans to continue the experiment. The next test for the main tractor will be the narrow mountain roads of Spain – it was decided to take the KAMAZ trucks for a ride in the Pyrenees.
