By Fikret Dolukhanov – Trend:

The first B10M bulldozer of the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant (ChTZ), which is a member of Rostek, has been assembled, Uzbek media reports.

The assembly was carried out by the Uzbek company Road Building Technics. The Uzbek company plans to acquire and assemble a whole batch of ChTZ tractors in 2018.

In 2017, the Chelyabinsk tractor manufacturer signed a dealership agreement with the Uzbek company, as well as a cooperation agreement that gives the right to Uzbek partners to independently assemble two models of tractors with a mechanical transmission: a serial six-cylinder B10M with a D-180 engine and a starting motor, and its swamp version - T10MB.

The bulldozer equipment is not included in the kit and is purchased separately as spare parts.

The Uzbek company is currently finalizing the assembly technology and resolving the issues of certification of assembled vehicles, which will allow to present them as Uzbek-Russian products. Such equipment will no longer be considered imported and will be able to participate in state tenders and competitions in Uzbekistan as a national commodity.

“Until recently, our equipment was assembled in four neighboring countries: Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Uzbekistan has been added to this list now,” said ChTZ Export Service Expert Vasiliy Shevchuk.
