Conquering a multiton MAZ is not an easy task. But for a professional driver, this is not a problem. Evgeny Kalinin has been working as a driver in the SEC "Progress-Vertelishki" for four years, and he has been driving a powerful truck for the same amount of time.
– At the very beginning, I managed a 10-ton MAZ, a year later I switched to a brand-new 40-ton truck. I've been working on it for three years, and I've done three harvesting campaigns. I breed grain, corn, haylage, silage –the man shares.
In winter, when there is no such agricultural work, they are sent on business trips: they have to go to Gomel, Soligorsk, and Novoelnya for fertilizers. Sometimes these trips take three days, if the path is long.
Eugene-32 years old, says that the economy on powerful trucks today employs many young people like him, and not just experienced drivers. Undoubtedly, the work is responsible, because driving a car, and even when you are transporting a load of more than 30 tons, is not very easy. This is not a small maneuverable car.
Outside of work, the man is also driving, but in a private car. Tries to follow the traffic rules . Although it is recognized that there are enough undisciplined drivers on the roads. But the attitude of men to women driving is absolutely unbiased: they say, the same drivers as men.
On the last Sunday of October, our country celebrates the day of the motorist and road worker. Traditionally, all professional drivers of public transport are congratulated. Evgeny Kalinin also addresses his wishes to those who get behind the wheel of the car every day:
– The main thing is that cars go and do not break down on the road. If we talk about work-so that everyone gets new cars, they are pleasant to drive, and there are no problems with them. And, of course, I wish all motorists health, happiness and prosperity.
