Demand for trucks is now enormous. Immediately behind the traditional European brands on our market manufacturers of trucks pulled out of China. Now in China there is practically no truck with its own mechanism they are all in one, and to some degree taken at other manufacturers. Pure Chinese trucks in Russia – the exception, so for this or that in the heavenly realms trucks can find an example of a hands-market brand. This does not give guarantee that your chosen vehicle will be fully match the quality of the famous instance, although the purchase of "almost Mercedes-Benz or MAN is always more pleasant than the unknown trucks with hard to pronounce and hard to memorable name. Having at his disposal trucks HOWO SX4255NY2904B 6×4 and HOWO ZZ4257S3241V 6 * 4, I first try to grasp the structure. The bulk of both trucks was nearly the same, although one of them thoroughly duplicates, at least superficially, popular in the 1990's MAN F2000, while the other goes back to the early 1970's, copying Mercedes-Benz that period. Both trucks are equipped with six-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine 279 hp, created "under license from Steyr.
Other heavyweights differ name, but the technical features are so similar that the difference is almost impossible to notice. In addition to the rear axle – in Shaanxi them with planetary hub reduction. Consequently, that under different "shell" we did same heavyweights? Yes and no … As for technical features, there is no difference at all. And those other heavyweights deliver 20 tons of payload, spending the same amount of fuel As livability of the driver's convenience, service and other trifles, the difference is very big.
About it and talk. The first conclusion suggests itself: Shaanxi in the cabin is the least twenty years more modern and then he and the faithful. But it is not so simple. Along with the actual cabin Shaanxi inherited from MAN interior and exterior decoration of plastics. Now imagine that the heavyweights will be used in the construction, where migrant workers will sit behind the wheel, working in shifts, almost without respite, squeezing out all of the trucks, what they are capable. In that case turned cab Shaanxi two or three months? For the ruthless exploitation of the trucks must meet one condition – The simpler the better. And here Shaanxi fits perfectly! Not for nothing that I have already said that every Chinese model has its adherents. Having dealt with a lot of consumer niches trucks now account all possible details found on the test. I'll start with what Cab MAN F2000 in action Shaanxi not lost its charm. Before the driver's eyes pleasantly recognizable brand appliances in cool colors, but in the hands of the steering wheel with leather trim. On Shaanxi, on the contrary, a great big wheel and thin. Manage it freely, but not very good – we have lost the habit of these "plastic rolls. The only thing more annoying in a Chinese truck, is the quality of workmanship. Not that these Heavyweights were worse than the domestic (as defined by the practice, just the opposite), is simply in our minds strengthened doubts and suspicion in China's heavyweights.
