When I served in the army, this car constantly let us down and broke down. We always got it going with the starter and the crook at the same time, and it didn’t start the first time. When we went to the exercises, we had to drag 131 on a trailer for KAMAZ 5301, as its engine jammed, although it was after a major overhaul. I do not argue that he has pluses, this is cross-country ability, but he is not reliable, since he may not reach the place and break. I recommend you KAMAZ.131 could be used if you introduce an engine from MTZ into it, that is, transfer it to diesel fuel, this will increase power and reduce fuel consumption. The truth is that the gearbox also does not go long without a bulkhead.

The car is a beast! will go everywhere! It has wheel alignment which is a definite plus. Also rulitsya pretty well, thanks GUR. Large space under the hood – any part can be examined or repaired. Of the minuses is the cabin. she rots quickly. Also, the hoses of the tire inflation system do not hold well, it is better to remove them if you do not drive on very off-road. Also a serious minus-expense. Such an expense due to the engine, I somehow drove 100 km from the city, loaded with 3 tons of pipes. Consumption came out 65l 80th per hundred. The brakes are incomprehensible – you press halfway – they do not work. After half I pressed the pedal for another 1mm, it slows down sharply. In general, if you need a car for transportation on light and medium off-road, I would recommend it.

I met the ZIL – 131 truck at a driving school when I passed the license for the category BC. It was just the month of February. At first, I was not much afraid of the car because of the size, and even winter, snowdrifts, galloled. But when I got behind the wheel, I realized that she didn’t care, the engine is very powerful, and the tread on the wheels is big on the wheels, they do their job. In terms of power, Zil pulls all 12 points. Although the car is old, it has been preserved very well, and even after a major overhaul. You can buy one from us for 30 thousand UAH. The only bad thing is that it runs on gasoline, which is now expensive, and for this reason we did not ride much. Consumption per hundred she has about 40 liters. Of course, the demand for them is not great now, mainly from mines, driving schools, but still. If they were even diesel, it would be better. And so they gradually disappear and it will be rare to see such a car soon.

He served as a driver in the fire department for six years, the part is small for only two turns. AC 40 130 63B was in combat, but AC 40 (131) 137 was in reserve. As soon as snowstorms, ice came his turn. A huge plus of the 131st https://cars45.co.ke/listing/ssangyong is its all-terrain qualities, the ability to increase and lower tire pressure directly from the cab, as well as a stationary fire monitor, which is also controlled from the inside, a whole pneumatic drive system allows the crew to supply water without leaving the cab. Otherwise, it has no differences from other fire trucks developed in the USSR. Among the shortcomings, it is worth noting the high fuel consumption, if memory serves 50 liters per 100 km, as well as a large turning radius

I have been working in the fire department since 1997. I consider this car AC – 40 (131) (137) a classic of the fire department. Reliable, time-tested, good throughput, reliable centrifugal pump. Science and technology does not stand still and it is a pity that it has been discontinued and new ones just like this do not enter service. We have him in the reserve, leaving only by the rank of the second number, but in the spring he is the only one to extinguish the grass in the fields, and of course, to competitions in fire-applied sports. There are also disadvantages, our unit is located in the area even earlier when it was on the first move (before the arrival of the new AC) when leaving for the villages, there was a lack of water supply (2400 liters, 10-15 minutes of work, believe me, this is very little). I really hope that the car will continue to work

Zil 131 is a reliable all-wheel drive truck with high cross-country ability and automatic wheel inflation driven by the driver, automatic and forced engagement of the front axle. I first encountered this miracle car in my cadet years, when they began to study military wheeled vehicles and undergo practical driving. Later I ran into him in the army, ZIL 131 is still in service. In the process of operation and repair, I was convinced that this model is really very suitable for the army in terms of its performance. It is very passable, in the course of my service I had to make my way in this car with a fully loaded body over rough terrain after rains, where tanks get stuck, once I got to a field camp along clay slopes during the rainy season along a field road broken by tanks, upon arrival in camp, the commander was surprised that I arrived and never got stuck, and all thanks to the fact that the driver automatically sets the required pressure in the tires, and he is all-wheel drive. According to the systems, I can say that hydraulics are only in steering, and the rest is mechanics and air, which is very important in combat conditions and work in the countryside. Dismantling the engine is very simple, access for repairs from all sides. In simple words, "bike".
