On Thursday, November 23, the first loader-diggers assembled in the Donetsk People's Republic were presented at the state enterprise "Torez Electrotechnical Plant". The DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko arrived at the plant in order to personally evaluate the new model of equipment.
"I am proud that our industry is gaining momentum and positively affects the economy as a whole. In the summer we received new buses of the Donbass brand, today – excavators. These cars, too, used to be assembled, like buses, by SKD. Of course, in the future we will be doing attachments ourselves – at state enterprises already.
I want to note that such events as today are truly an achievement for the DPR, which is the merit of every citizen of our Republic," Alexander Zakharchenko said.
Also, the Head of State stressed that domestic machines would not be inferior to foreign analogues.
We note that the TETZ 114 loader-digger is designed to perform work on the soils of I-III categories, as well as for loading and unloading operations. The carrying capacity of this model is 1 ton. The versatility of the machine lies in the possibility of installing a multi-purpose bucket of the "4 in 1" type.
According to Igor Navalenny, Director of the SE "TETZ", the equipment was made of special alloyed structural steels that withstand high mechanical and thermal loads.
A test drive of new excavators was conducted for the Head of the Republic Alexander Zakharchenko, the head of the Department for Internal and External Policy of the Administration of the DPR Head Dmitry Trapeznikov, and the Acting Minister of Industry and Trade Alexey Granovsky during the tour of the production department.
The DPR Head promised that the first two units of equipment would be sent immediately for further operation in the city of Debaltsevo.
