The all-terrain floating vehicle 59037 for the transport of passengers and goods
The all-terrain floating vehicle 59037 is designed for the transport of passengers and goods on paved roads, on unpaved roads, including off-road, with the ability to overcome water obstacles. The vehicle is designed for operation at ambient temperatures from -40 ° C to + 40 ° C and provides for the possibility of garage-free storage. It is irreplaceable as a vehicle in flood zones and other natural disasters, man-made disasters for evacuating people and delivering emergency equipment.
The 59037 vehicle consists of an eight-wheeled four-axle chassis with an 8x8 wheel formula and a load-bearing body. According to the purpose and location of the component parts, the vehicle is conditionally divided into three sections: control compartment, cargo and passenger compartment and power compartment.
The control compartment (driver's workplace) is located in the vehicle bow. It contains the vehicle controls, means for monitoring the units, systems and assemblies condition and operation, and part of appliances and electrical equipment.
The cargo and passenger compartment occupies the volume of the vehicle body from the control compartment to the engine partition of the power compartment. It accommodates seats for 9 to 11 passengers, a winch, some electrical equipment and spare parts for the vehicle. For the cargo transport, some or all of the seats are dismantled and the awning is removed. A sealed cargo platform with drop sides is installed in the aft part of the vehicle above the power compartment. In total, the vehicle’s carrying capacity is up to 5000 kg.
The power compartment is located in the rear of the vehicle and is isolated from the manned compartments by a sealed partition. It contains an engine with a clutch and a gearbox, a fourth axle, radiators for the cooling system and oil system, a centrifugal fan, air, fuel and oil filters, an engine preheater, fuel tanks, a jet propulsion unit and an autonomous heater for the cargo-passenger compartment.
Four-wheel drive, independent torsion bar suspension of all wheels, high ground clearance (475 mm), energy-absorbing telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers ensure high cross-country ability of the vehicle in off-road conditions and high travel speed (up to 50 km / h) on dirt roads and off-road conditions.
The jet propulsion system and control system on the water allow overcoming water obstacles without preliminary preparation and ensuring the vehicle movement on the water at a 9 km / h speed.
