The company made the transition to serial production of 27 -ton dump truck BELAZ – 540 in 1965 without a stop producing operations that dump truck was the progenitor of a whole family of heavy-duty trucks. Since 1967, the company has mastered the production of 40- ton dump trucks BELAZ - 548A, designed for the greatest possible unification of the basic units and parts of the two cars.
