It is good to see many players in HCV segment , otherwise this segment was ruled by tatas and leylands for long time . With Indian roads (especially highways ) getting better we can see the transformation in HCVs too, with bigger , higher powered, more sophisticated, better performance, and ofcourse more expensive too. Hope the atittude of the truck drivers change when driving these monsters [;)]

I have seen some photographs from net & i hope they had inverted rear axles.
Adding some snaps would be helpful.

I doubt on the figure 1200. Even if the stock was 1200, not all were made for export, may be a few.
AMW has customers in Nepal & Bangladesh too.

Are you referring to this?
Yes. Here is the interior snap of 'PUG'

Mr. Boss, during my visit to their factory they were only manufacturing, rather assembling the components there which was shipped in from Russia, cab included (as explained by the plant GM). They did not have the automated assembly, and most of the assembly was manual, however they have a nice big area where they were planning to put separate assembly lines for trucks & also shop was being constructed where they planned to assemble the bus body. Back then they were only assembling the 6X6 dump truck and a prototype of the tractor was assembled only a few days prior to my visit. Wait till Monday, the pics would be uploaded.

Cheers!!!

Attaching the pictures of the trucks during assembly at the URAL factory in Haldia, West Bengal, the Yellow dump trucks are the 6X6, heavy duty ones, the Red one is as you can make out a fire tender based on the same 6X6 platform, while the Blue one is LHD 8X4 from Russia, which was assembled at the factory itself. Work is on to automate the assembly process.

Cheers!!!

Wow!
The real monsters. Thanks for the pictures Jawa. Are these trucks common atleast in Kolkata? Never seen them in south. I hope they are engaged only in deep mining applications.

You're welcome Boss, indeed these are monsters, i have seen these trucks at Salt Lake city in Kolkata, its the new part of the city, where new buildings and business centers are coming up, these trucks are used there in transporting the earth which is excavated to make the land flat or for the foundation, however I have not seen them being used in the mining sector, since i belong to Dhanbad, (coal capital of India)[:)].

Cheers!!!

Sorry mate, I don't have the pictures of the interiors, let's see if I do visit their factory again, I'll definitely get some, I was actually there for official purpose, when I took the pictures posted earlier.
