The new BELAZ-75131 machines have already arrived at the production site of the Rudnogorsk mine in the Irkutsk region, where similar heavyweights designed for operation in difficult mining conditions have already proven themselves.
Long-term operation of mining equipment, BELAZ specialists emphasized, has proved its endurance thanks to a reliable and economical motor. By the way, the new model has a 1600 horsepower four-stroke diesel engine. In addition, it uses an electric transmission with ballasts based on microelectronics and an effective electrodynamic braking system. And a high degree of vibration and noise absorption has been created in the operator's cab of BELAZ.
