UrBC, Yekaterinburg, July 10, 2015. Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev looked at Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s latest B11.8000 bulldozer at the Innoprom 2015 Exhibition.

According to the corporation’s press service, the bulldozer was presented by DG Oleg Sienko, who told the Prime Minister about the vehicle’s new options. The machine was designed within the framework of the company’s import replacement program. The B11.8000 bulldozer was designed by ChTZ-Uraltrac (the corporation’s member enterprise) and a major Chinese machine-building concern Shandong Heavy Industry Group.

Uraltransmash (one of the corporation’s member enterprises as well) presented restyled makes of its Comfort and Economy 74-409 (low-floor) and 71-407 (partly low-floor) trams. These trams differ from their traditional, older versions both on the inside and on the outside, with new body and cabin shapes and new, composite materials. The trams were designed at Uraltransmash and manufactured by Chelyabinsk-based Polydor; the latter also contributed to the development of the low-floor, new-generation 71-410 (R1) tram.

The trams displayed at Innoprom have more comfortable seats and improved interior finish, complete in company colors. The 71-407 passenger trams are already in use in Tula, Krasnodar, Taganrog, Volgograd, Saint Petersburg, and other Russian cities.
