Finally, the UAZ thought of screwing the hydraulic cylinder to the standard cargo platform of the "tadpole". True, not himself, partners from Nizhny Novgorod helped. A new modification with a dump body based on the onboard "tadpole" UAZ 330365 was developed by the Nizhny Novgorod company ZAF ("Plant of Vans") and can carry, according to an official press release, over 1000 kilograms of cargo. That is, about a ton, well, or how much it will fit until the springs burst.
The dimensions of the cargo platform of the dumping modification are 2680 mm / 1870 mm / 400 mm. The platform floor is covered with 1-1.5 mm thick sheet steel. The maximum tilt angle of the body is 45 degrees. The loading platform is tilted using a four-section hydraulic cylinder connected to a European-made 12-volt hydraulic station.
The cab of the dump "tadpole" has a remote wired remote control, that is, the lifting and lowering of the cargo platform can be controlled remotely, without even leaving the car. There is an additional mechanical stop for insurance so that the body does not fall on you when you clean, inspect or repair it.
The legendary "tadpole", which is now called UAZ 330365, as always has a four-wheel drive with a "lower". The inline four-cylinder petrol ZMZ develops a power of 112 "horses" and a maximum torque of 198 Nm. The transmission is mechanical, five-speed.
The press release notes that "a reliable and unpretentious model can be successfully used in agriculture and municipal services, where its carrying capacity, maneuverability and compact dimensions will be obvious advantages. Below is the" official "video of loading and unloading a dump tadpole from the site Be sure to look at it, you will get a complete picture of how you do not need to make commercials for your products, well, everything about a dump truck will also become clear at once.By the way, the minimum cost of installing a dump platform is 240,000 rubles.
I would like to ask the Ulyanovskites - guys, where have you been before? Rural and communal services have been aware of the advantages of the "tadpole" for 54 years, many have gone bankrupt long ago, shoveling manure out of them by hand, and now, finally, instead of a shovel, you can dump humus onto a garden bed at the touch of a button. It's just some kind of holiday! True, this year, instead of beds, it may be necessary to dig graves, but also to the cemetery, where, in principle, it is high time to send the ancient "tadpole", its maneuverability and compactness will be in demand.
By the way, UAZ Profi is already in a hurry to help the "tadpole", Ulyanovsk residents in the same press release promise that a dump truck based on the latest Ulyanovsk truck will appear very soon, it remains only to wait until the tests are completed and OTTS is received. Tipper UAZ Profi will also be made at the facilities of ZAF. Apparently, something did not work out with the previous contractor, because the specialized media wrote back in October last year that serious guys from the village of Kozlovka in Chuvashia established the production of a dump truck on the basis of the UAZ Profi. I'm not joking about the seriousness, open the site a-furgon.ru, you will see for yourself, the Kozlovites are not bastard, they make civil and military special equipment up to vans for transporting explosives and mobile welding complexes on a caterpillar track. But I didn't find a dump UAZ Pro on the site, maybe I was looking in the wrong Kozlovka?
Well friends, are you happy with the success of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant? It seems to be the first serial "tadpole" - a dump truck. Or did Ulyanovsk residents make dump trucks before? Write in the comments, if you know something about it, like it and subscribe, there is nothing to do in quarantine anyway)
By the way, UAZ has been very generous with new items lately. For example, a small-scale camper with a high roof based on the "Loaf" . I remember he caused a storm of indignation in the comments, although it would seem, why? The retro cam looks good on renders. In general, the very style of "Tadpole", "Loaf" and "Goat" has already turned, in my opinion, into a national cultural heritage. I believe that the appearance of classic UAZs (Patriot does not apply to them) cannot be touched, but the aggregate base needs to be completely changed. With good diesels, axles and transmissions, they can be produced for another fifty years, like the Toyota Land Cruiser 78 for example. What do you think?
