In different cars the transmission works differently. For example, there are front drive and rear drive vehicles. Torque in them is transmitted to the front or rear wheels only. They «pull» a car, and the other wheels just roll by inertia. There are also all-wheel drive cars, in which all the wheels are involved.

«Burlak» - is the AT vehicle with part-time all-wheel drive. Torque divider is used for torque distribution between the reduction gears. It is assembled on the basis of GAZ-66 unit. We`ve changed the body and adjusted the torque divider to pneumatic control. Now it is lighter and more durable.

It is possible to maintain the mechanisms of «Burlak» from the interior. In the floor of the AT vehicle, there is a hatch, that leads to the hull — waterproof construction, containing the engine, fuel, air and braking systems.
Though, there are some components, which are placed outside of the car. For example, the wheels. In the hull there are holes for joining the wheels with other units. To protect the holes from water, show and dirt rubber-reinforced joints and Ravenol Russland oiling are used.

What makes Burlak reliable and easy to repair? It has two types of components and assemblies — unique and standard. We make unique ones ourselves because the market has no items with required specifications: some are heavy, some have the wrong ratio. Standard parts make it easier and cheaper to run our AT vehicles.

Gearbox is one of the standard components. It is connected with torque distribution. Gearbox can increase and decrease output torque, transferred by transfer case depending on design and purpose of a vehicle. «Burlak» has «Gazel-Business» component. Designers have chosen it, because it`s durable, light and has the required ratio of 4.3.

"Burlak" was shown on REN-TV, in the program "Military Secrets with Igor Prokopenko". They talked about the Far North and the vehicles that can run at low temperatures. It was right to mention our AT-vehicle - "Burlak" had been initially designed to conquer the Arctic. From the 58th minute we watch our "Four-ton monster", as it was named in the program.

The production of the cargo version is going on. One of the steps is the design of the interior. The interior of the vehicle is equipped with passengers compartment, driver`s seat and a cooking table. 


The interior can also be equipped like an off-road camper van (mounted with TV set, russian sauna and others blessings of civilisation).

The cargo version of Burlak (B-4), which will be run in Chukotka soon, is equipped with self-locking differentials. The performance has been checked on the marshlands, when going out on hard surface, and locking actuation on the wheels of Burlak is almost imperceptible.

In addition, at the request of the customer, we’re equipping Burlak with positive locking.

Ural Engineers Are Going to Send Two Cargo Arctic All-Terrain Vehicles to Chukotkа

The Ural engineers, launched small-scale production of arctic all-terrain vehicles "Burlak" in Yekaterinburg, will send two vehicles of cargo configuration to the Chukotka Autonomous District. This was announced on Tuesday by the chief designer of the project Alexey Makarov.

"The first "Burlak " demonstrated good capabilities in May in Chukotka; the requests for two more all-terrain vehicles of cargo configuration were received from there: one all-terrain vehicle is ready, the second one is in the final stage of building: the engine is already installed, the transmission and the heating system for passenger compartment are ready. Now the specialists are assembling the wiring, preparing dashboard, further - the installation of windows and the final interior trim, " said the interlocutor of the agency.

Earlier it was reported that at the end of May 2018 the domestic all-terrain vehicle, designed in the Urals for transportation of goods and passengers, covered 6 thousand kilometers from Yakutia to the Chukotka Autonomous District. In Chukotka, the AT vehicle was tested while travelling to distant villages, the whole trip took 2.5 thousand kilometers.

The AT vehicle is made for driving both on winter roads, and in deep snow. Part of the all-terrain vehicle is based on serial components, but there are a number of original parts in the design, developed by the Ural enterprise “Makar Off Road”.

 

About the Project

Assembled and tested by a group of Ural engineers in 2016, Burlak became the ancestor of a new class of multi-purpose Russian Arctic all-terrain vehicles, but it was too heavy to move on a thin sea ice and it could barely get ashore.

Soon "Burlak 2.0" was built, it became lighter by one and a half tons and more powerful. Its tests took place in February-March 2017, the team followed the same route as in 2016: through Inta and Vorkuta (the Republic of Komi) to Baidaratskaya Bay (one of the largest bays in the Kara Sea) and back through Labytnangi (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District), Ivdel (Sverdlovsk Region) and Yekaterinburg.

In 2017, on the outskirts of Yekaterinburg, the cargo version of Burlak was also successfully tested. It is suitable for transportation of goods, passengers, equipment across rugged terrain and at low temperatures. Due to low-pressure tires, the all-terrain vehicle does not harm the soil cover and is suitable for operation in reserves and other places closed for entry.

From the start the technical partner of the project and the company is the manufacturer of lubricants Ravenol. They are suitable for operation in the harshest climatic conditions. Motor oils, antifreezes and other liquids necessary for the work of Burlak, are all from Ravenol only. We thank the partner for friendship and reliability!

Вездеход «Бурлак» успешно испытан на Чукотке

Новый вездеход «Бурлак», разработанный компанией «Вездеходы Макарова» для работы в условиях Крайнего Севера, испытали на Чукотке. Там технику используют для перевозки грузов и людей.

— Машина без проблем прошла путь в 6 тысяч километров от Якутии до Чукотского автономного округа, ни разу не потребовав ремонта. Уже на Чукотке я ездил на ней в отдаленные села, весь путь занял 2,5 тысячи километров, проходимость у вездехода высокая. В отличие от наиболее часто используемых в регионе вездеходов марки «ТРЭКОЛ», у «Бурлака» выше проходимость и грузоподъемность. Если в первый вездеход можно погрузить не более 700 килограммов груза и максимум шесть человек, то во второй — порядка двух тонн, — рассказывает испытатель вездехода Александр Лысенко.

Модель, отправленная на работу в Чукотский автономный округ, в прошлом году успешно прошла испытания в водах Карского моря и готовилась для покорения Северного полюса. Ее разработали в Екатеринбурге. Машина подготовлена для езды, как по зимникам, так и по глубокому снегу, что в условиях Чукотки, где почти нет обычных дорог, оптимальный вариант.

Машина расходует 40 литров топлива на 100 километров пути, в ней также предусмотрена автономная заправка на полтонны горючего. Часть вездехода основана на серийных комплектующих, однако в конструкции есть ряд оригинальных деталей и узлов, разработанных в компании.

AT-vehicle «Burlak» became one of the top three all-terrain vehicles in Russia.

The Daily-Motor.Ru editorial office has listed top three of the most impressive all-terrain vehicles, designed by russian engineers.

The first line of the rating belongs to Sherp vehicle, which has been represented for the first time at the exhibition of crossovers and all-terrain vehicles in Moscow in 2015. The swamp-vehicle canovercomealmost all obstacles in itspath. It is powered by 1.5-liter turbodiesel, which produces 44 horsepower in total. Nevertheless, such power is enough for this model to perform tasks for which it was designed. You may buy such all-terrain vehicle if you have about 65 thousand dollars (4 million rubles) in your pocket.

The second place in top three belongs to Anton-Impuls Viking 2992 model, which design is more attractive than the design of Sherpmodel. Moreover, it may seat up 7 people, that is why it could happen that in a possible post-apocalyptic future we willdrivesomething like that. This AT-vehicle was designed in 2014. It is equipped with compact 82 horsepower engine, which is apparently not enough for the vehicle weighing 3.3 tons. Nevertheless, inoff-road conditions, the engine capacity is quite enough. The price is about 200 thousand dollars (12 million 500 thousand rubles).

And finally, inthe third place of the top three, there is an all-terrain amphibious vehicle «Burlak», which was designed in 2015 by «Makar Offroad» company. The main purpose of this model is to use it in the Arctic. The basic advantage of «Burlak» in contrast to its competitors isimpossibility to drown in marshlands and other water bodies, as each of its six wheels is a kind of float, which doesn`tallow the all- terrain vehicle to go underwater.
