Press Release / August 9, 2014

Belarus-based truckmaker MAZ has debuted an advanced new Euro-6 heavy tractor on the 70th anniversary of the Minsk Automobile Plant.

The MAZ-5440M9 features a completely redesigned cab with a dramatically enhanced exterior complimented by significant interior upgrades.

A low fifth wheel of 1150mm easily allows haulage of 2.9 meter height shipping containers and high-cube trailers.

The 4x2 variant of the tractor has a gross combination weight rating of 40 metric tons (88,185lb).

The new tractor is powered by the Euro-6 emissions compliant Mercedes-Benz OM471 (DD13) rated at 475 hp. MAZ finalized an OM471 engine supply agreement with Mercedes-Benz in 2013.

MAZ chief designer Pavel Shabanov said of the new MAZ-5440M9 tractor: "We created it using the latest heavy truck technologies, including advanced frame, suspension, drivetrain and cab design."
