However, he is not going to work on the roads: his element is airports.

This is in old films from the terminal building to the plane a rare string of passengers go with trunks. A modern airport cannot do without a bus.

The question of what width to adhere to when designing the bus was one of the main ones. With the standard - 2500 mm - it would stretch for almost 17 meters. A lot of it even for airfields, but otherwise it’s comfortable not to place all passengers at once.

Having increased the width to the limit indicated by the rules of railway transportation, the bus was shortened to 14.4 m.

But there was no dispute about the layout: Neoplan makes such buses six-door (three on each side), low-floor and front-wheel drive. Imported units were chosen with the prospect of selling “airbuses” for export. Indeed, in Belarus there are so far only two potential buyers, in Russia there are already dozens, and in the West there is a chance to sell hundreds of cars. If fastidious customers are satisfied with the quality, design and price.

This bus has a large gross weight of 22 tons, but the speed at airports is limited to 20 km / h, so the engine power is 170 hp. enough in excess. On the very first copy of the MAZ-171 there is a four-cylinder Deutz turbodiesel (Euro III), but they can mount a Mercedes, MAN or any other. The motor is installed longitudinally in the front overhang, and the distance from the bumper to the front axle is almost 3.5 meters. A rare open space for the designer! You can easily place the box - “automatic” ZF, “Voith” or “Allison”.

However, it’s difficult to find an alternative to the front drive axle of the German company Kessler. A unique combination of a wide gauge, the ability to carry a load of 11 tons, a large gear ratio and 45-degree wheel rotation.
