The military men of Yemen, Angola, India and other countries have given preference to this truck. At one of the biggest defense exhibitions IDEX-2007 which took place in Abu Dhabi in February 2007, AvtoKrAZ together with his partner the Streit Armored Group Company has presented a multi-purpose armored KrAZ-6322 platform truck Raptor that received favourable reviews of experts. High estimate of Ukrainian trucks resulted in signing of a few contracts for KrAZ trucks delivery to the countries of Africa and the Middle East. Sales growth was stimulated by a considerable extension of model range and profound vehicles modernization that improved consumer qualities, as well as fundamental reorganization of work and concentration on the customer in order to satisfy his needs at most that is to supply him with spare parts and service package: warranty and after-sales service. Currently the company is working actively at developing of KrAZ trucks with RH steering, enlarging the range of options offered to the customer. We have adapted the engines with the ecological standard Euro-3 manufactured by the Yaroslavl Motor Plant, KAMAZ and Cummins for KrAZ vehicles sets and we offer such trucks to the customer. Recently we have considerably enlarged standard size range of tipping platforms offered the consumer due to completing trucks with 14-, 16-, 18- and 20cube bodies. KrAZ vehicle served as a basis for new types of special equipment, namely, the KrAZ truck with multi-lift equipment, the truck for patching repair, the truck-mounted concrete pump, and special trucks for the Ministry of Emergency Situations and shot lighters. For the first time during the KrAZ history the production of the fire-fighting truck and the truck crane on two-axle chassis was mastered. The truck cabin was considerably modernized: a new steering wheel was applied, air suspension seat was equipped with safety belts, due to modern sound-insulating materials the level of internal noise was greatly decreased, vibroloading at the drivers working place was reduced, the brake system was modernized etc. We offer the consumer KrAZ vehicles equipped with engines of such manufacturers as Cummins, Deutz, as well as of Eaton and Alisson gear boxes, fifth wheels of the JOST or George Fisher type, Micheline tyres etc. Our future trend is to work out KrAZ medium-duty trucks, to diversify special equipment. The company is constantly engaged in information gathering about running performance of the supplied KrAZ trucks in order to make engineering development. Holding Company AvtoKrAZ and its export subdivision JSC FTF KrAZ offer cooperation!</p> <p>JSC Foreign Trade Firm KrAZ, being an export subdivision of Holding Company AvtoKrAZ, is a kind of engine of the company and defines development strategy of the enterprise, produced vehicles design in conditions of rapidly changing global automobile market.

The president of the company, Mr. Marco Tockachelly, has shown his willingness to accept the vehicles on the spot and test them personally in off-roads conditions and in the soft ground. Having completed a test-drive Mr. Tockachelly admired high cross-country ability of all-purpose vehicles, their excellent dynamic behaviour and good maneuverability and expressed his interest in developing cooperation.</p> <p>KrAZ cross-country trucks have made their way towards Italy</p> <p>To satisfy numerous requests of construction organizations, Holding Company AvtoKrAZ has brought out to the market of building technology a truck-mounted concrete pump JXZ 37-4.16HP (JUNJIN Heavy Industry, Korea) on KrAZ-65053 chassis with 6x4 wheel arrangement. A new design enables to discharge concrete mix to the height of 37 m with high accuracy, it saves time, provides conveniences and additional opportunities when operated on the construction site. The concrete pump truck output is 20-158 cubic meter per hour. Concrete intake capacity is 600 l. A powerful multi-stage rotary water pump has output capacity of 120 l/m and operating pressure of 20 bar. The pump is equipped with automatic control system using radio remote control.</p> <p>AvtoKrAZ jointly with the Telecard-Device Company (Odessa) created field communication system based on the two-axle all-wheel drive KrAZ-5233BE truck with 4x4 wheel arrangement. The truck is equipped with 330-h.p. engine Euro-2, 1350x550-533 tyres and provided with centralized tyre inflation system controlled directly from the cabin. Truck full mass with communication equipment room complex is 14.2 tons. Truck maximum speed is 80 km/h. Communication equipment complex (the so called shelter) is mounted on the shortened platform. This complex takes place of 7-8 earlier applied communication equipment rooms. It is noteworthy that similar products are produced only in 5 countries of the world. This complex has a great export potential since without it, it is impossible to control army in modern conditions.</p> <p>Field communication system based on KrAZ-5233BE</p> <p>AvtoKrAZ</p> <p>2007</p> <p>digest N3</p> <p>5</p> <p>Exhibitions</p> <p>Holding Company AvtoKrAZ jointly with the company AUTOKRAZ POLSKA the exclusive representative in the territory of Poland took part in the International Exhibtion of Road Construction Autostrada-Polska 2007 that was held in the city of Kelts (Poland) in May. Annually the exhibition hosts on its area the leading European manufacturers of construction equipment, trucks, trailers and parts. This year more than 600 companies from all over the world took part in it. Holding Company AvtoKrAZ exposition was represented by: I all-wheel drive dump trucks with 6x6 wheel arrangement: KrAZ-65032-063 with load carrying capacity of 20 tons, equipped with a platform of 16 m3, and KrAZ-65032-65 on wide-section tyres Micheline with load carrying capacity of 18 tons, equipped with 12-cube platform. I four-axle KrAZ-7133C4 dump truck with 8x4 wheel arrangement, load carrying capacity of 25 tons and 12-cube platform. Ukrainian heavy trucks are widely known in Poland and enjoy the reputation of reliable and undemanding vehicles, therefore KrAZ exposition aroused a great interest among exhibition visitors. The representatives of construction and mining companies that had KrAZ vehicles in their truck fleet bought at the times of the Soviet Union spoke respectfully of their functional performance and stated they had not come across a more endurable truck. A good truck was the most frequent phrase pronounced by the guests of AvtoKrAZ exposition. One of the guests, Romeck Kirichin a driver with 20-years working experience of driving different types of KrAZ vehicles, said the following: The first time I drove KrAZ was in the army, that was KrAZ-260B fifth-wheel tractor that is used for fuel tanks transportation. I had a very good impression about that truck. Having a 20-years driving experience</p> <p>New KrAZ vehicles for Polish builders!I tested many trucks, but if I were to choose which truck I would prefer for work, I would answer without hesitation: Surely, KrAZ! Once at the highway construction we had an accident. Primary work was carried out by our domestically produced STAR vehicles. A heavy rain started, it lasted rather long and was not going to stop. Suddenly our vehicles started to sink in the mud. Then our chief decided to call for more powerful vehicles KrAZ and TATRA from the other site. The work was continuing for some time. TATRA vehicles did not sustain torrential rain and a heavy wind, and run down, whereas KrAZ continued to work confidently. A foul weather did not grow quiet continuing to test the strength of people and equipment and it won KrAZ vehicles run down. Then our chief was at loss and pronounced the phrase that I remembered for all my life. He said: If even KrAZ vehicle did not manage, nobody and nothing is able to work in such conditions.</p> <p>Romeck Kirichin Polish KrAZ-driver with 20-years working experience During the exhibition Holding Company AvtoKrAZ jointly with AUTOKRAZ POLSKA conducted negotiations with management of mining and construction enterprises that resulted in concluding contracts for KrAZ vehicles delivery.
