Engine and Performance
Known for the high performance, Kamaz 2523 is powered by Cummins B5.6 Turbocharged After Cooled 5.9 Litre 6-Cylinder In-Line BS III Diesel engine, which could churn out maximum power of 215 HP @ 2,500 rpm and massive peak torque of 800 Nm @ 1,500 rpm. This much torque is more than enough to give it a swift pick up and acceleration right from the start and irrespective of the terrain.
Talking about its performance, the 9-speed ZF 1110 TD gear transmission system with Axial Spring Push Type Ceramic Clutch (380 mm diameter) could take this truck to a top speed of 80 km/h with gradeability hitting 48% in crawler gear. This much gradeability coefficient ensures that it climbs all the rough and high steep terrains with ease as it moves on a highway.
Also, the BS III emission norms makes it environment friendly while it is on long trips, thanks to the 300 Litre fuel tank capacity.
Vehicle Built and Load Capacity
Kamaz 2523 has quite moderate dimensions to move easily across the country with its full load carrying capacity. Overall, it is7,530 mm long, 2,588 mm wide and 3,580 mm high with a wheelbase of 4,320 m.
The load body options of 2523 are 16 and 18 Cubic Meter (CuM) letting the truck carry a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 25,000 kg.
Handling and Suspension
Every truck that gets launched in India has to be equipped with effective Handling and Suspension System and Kamaz has taken care of that well. There is ZF 9 Speed1110 TD Adjustable Power Assisted Steering with 510 mm diameter and 26.2 ratio, making it easier to move the truck on difficult terrains.
The Forged Heavy Duty I-Beam Reverse Elliot Type front and Fully Floating Tandem with 6.17 ratio rear axle alongside Semi Elliptical Leaf Spring suspension with anti-roll bar at the front and Heavy Duty Bogie Suspension with Stabilizers at the rear make the drive bump-free.
Braking and Safety
Kamaz has equipped 2523 with Dual Brake S Cam Type service brakes, Butterfly Type engine brake and parking brakes. Now, with this braking system, the tyres of dimension 11x20 16 PR at both front and rear do remarkably well stopping the truck in time on unpredictable Indian roads. Also, the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Seat Belts along with rugged cabin frame do everything to minimize the injury in an accident, if happens.
Design and Comfort
It is a fact that trucks don’t get much attention on the design part, but Kamaz is trying to prove it otherwise. Like all trucks in its fleet, 2523 has also been designed aerodynamically to support the speed and smooth drive. Inside too, the cabin has lots of comfort and space with optional air conditioner and one sleeper berth to allow you comfortable long trips.
It takes heavy loads and climbs good on the roads. Brakes are good but needs more maintenance as compared to tata or leyland. Suspension is tuned to conquer the tough terrains with minimal effort and makes the going comfortable. Fuel consumption is competitive. Feels less durable in comparison to man and amw.
Good for construction mud or waste transport. And good handling and comfortable gear and breaking system. Also Good for fit and fine performance.
