Vologda Rover Ranger-M: a little Vase, the Oise, and steel pipes

Vologda “Forester” on low-pressure tires is one of the most affordable of the conquerors of the snow and swamps.Maxim Homann “Behind the wheel”

Power protection on the front side — option for 11,500 rubles. Tent — the basic equipment. On wheel arches fixed broad plastic wings. The Forester remains clean even after forays into serious dirt.Power protection on the front side — option for 11,500 rubles. Tent — the basic equipment. On wheel arches fixed broad plastic wings.

The world has long known and loved “Forester”, but in the performance of the Subaru. And we have our own Russian interpretation — a native of Vologda. The first vehicle assembled in 2009 and in 2012 was certified and started to produce commercially. At that time was the revision and modernization of the machine. The result was the Ranger-M is constructively simple and therefore affordable all-terrain vehicle tires low pressure. Well, as “affordable”… the Price is 1.4 million rubles shocks many. However, such a technique is a more than sane price.

Simple but not simple

To bears avoided by the owner of the forest must be terrible. With this task the Forester growth more than two and a half meters to cope with a Bang. Seen it a mile away, and brutality makes a massive methodically. I would also put mesh on the sides, not to beat large glass cockpit.

The body is doing in the image and likeness of other such machines. First weld the frame of steel pipes of different cross sections to give the necessary rigidity, and then sheathe it dural leaves.

From the transmission to the front and rear bridges are two modified cardan shaft, UAZ‑469. The main couple in the transmission replaced a couple with a large gear ratio (4,9), and the center differential was locked. This decision significantly increased the permeability.From the transmission to the front and rear bridges are two modified cardan shaft, UAZ‑469.

To touch the vehicle also deliberately rough hand immediately feels the roughness of the coating Raptor. The base color is green. Want a different color scheme? Over 26 500 roubles will make any.

Look under the bottom. Forester manly stern: the rear springs and the front suspension… it is not! Front axle UAZ‑469 is rigidly mounted to the body. From the transmission of the VAZ‑21083 with the main couple 4.9 out of drive axles are two cardan — they are also from UAZ. This scheme allowed to get rid of the transfer case and extra drive and lower weight of the Rover.

Overview from the driver’s seat is beautiful! Seat stands in the middle, so to assess the situation on the right and left alike. The ceiling and the door — without upholstery, painted metal fastened rubber mats. The coolant reservoir is adjacent to the USB connector. On the left hand side pressure gauge tyre pressure and brake fluid reservoir.

The rear two benches for four people. Over 82 000 put the auxiliary heater Webasto, otherwise spend the night in the tilt-body can only be in the sleeping bags. Easier to settle in for the night will allow dismountable coverings (24, 000): they are placed between the benches, making three full beds.

Remembering “eight”

Put my hands on the plastic VAZ steering wheel (in place of the rook — the emblem of the Forester). Turn the key and behind wakes up 82‑horsepower engine VAZ‑21114. At idle the engine just sounds, you can talk not losing his voice.

Include the first transfer. Rather, try to incorporate. Box “eight” I have already weaned, and then just memories came flooding back. Move the lever tight, transmission is included with stress.

Finally, let’s go. Now the second, which is given for easier. From it, if under the wheels of a solid surface like asphalt or gravel, to start better, good traction deficit. By the way, the more expensive Rover Rod Neo, on which I have traveled in the winter, too wazowski transmission, only Grants, it is much easier, although the pattern of switching on the mirror Rod.

The maximum speed of a Forester is 50 km/h For passenger standards a bit, but for Rover it’s just the first space, because it is about 25 km/h (rate determined by eye, no speedometer, only a tach) but on a flat road the car starts to bounce like a rubber ball, – the front suspension is missing, and the tire pressure is 0.25 ATM. For the tires decently.But furious shaking no, pitching as if on the waves. Thanks to the tyres, which take on the role of dampers, and suspension of the driver’s seat.

Inside the tilt of the body it’s pretty simple. Mattresses in camouflage, which are held by Velcro, easy to remove and you can wash compartment Karcher, without fear of anything to fill.Inside the tilt of the body it’s pretty simple.

Blow off and do not boil

Approaching a steep slope and dive down, struggling clinging to the wheel. Scary! When huge glasses a couple of seconds, visible only to the earth, I would like to be kept a full belt, and there are only a lap. Sense of it a little bit, just on the stomach pushes. But if you want to at least sometimes drive on ordinary roads, without a seat belt anywhere: it is required for certification of all-terrain vehicle in the Gostekhnadzor. By the way, the Forester can safely do, and need to control the rights of the tractor operator-the driver.

Finally I was near the forest. Need to set the tire pressure. My car — with a centralized swap. The thing is indispensable: it is not necessary to get out there and bleed the air in each tire individually. Remember how on the Yamal Peninsula, six-wheeled, T‑64, I spend the same tires manually. Exhausted!

Pump system will cost 86 000 rubles. It consists of paging (one for each hub), compressor with receiver and a couple of tumblers. Click one switch, and wakes up the compressor (firm Aggressor) capacity 160 l/min He drives air through the receiver directly to all four wheels. The second switch opens the solenoid valve and the pressure in all four wheels decreases.

The engine VAZ‑21114 placed longitudinally behind the driver’s seat. It turns out ideal weight. And access to the units is excellent. The radiator of the cooling system — from the Chevrolet Niva.The engine VAZ‑21114 placed longitudinally behind the driver’s seat. It turns out ideal weight. And access to the units is excellent.

Lowered the pressure to 0.15 bar — most of the movement on soft melting snow. The food on the virgin snow, not even touching the lock. The Ranger confidently passes through large ruts and deep puddles boosts. Minimum speed is 2 km/h.

The motor works in the range of 2500-3500 rpm. Noisy, but tolerable. Testers are advised to monitor the coolant temperature. If rose above 98 degrees, lit the warning light. Now you need to turn on the switch (it is on the right hand) and bring two fans of the cooling system at full capacity.

Including blocking bridges, out of the deep snow. I stop on the hill, and then falling into a rut. To famously ride on the Forester, you need a good physical training. There is power, but to turn big wheels in deep snow difficult. One such trip is like going to the gym!

On the water the Ranger moved thanks to the wheels of low pressure. In case, if you need more speed on the back door with transom for outboard motor.

The Forester does not look cheap crafts with the simplicity of it is made soundly. Can be equipped with all-terrain folding windshield (39 600 rubles), led “chandelier” Hella on the roof (26 000), expeditionary trunk (23 000) and an electric winch ComeUp Cub 4 (42 000).

Let the Forester no superpropagator as the more expensive all-terrain vehicles, the Sherpa or the Rod, but our “Forester” pass, where the mired tow, on the roof of the UAZ Patriot. By the way, that is comparable in price with Vologda “the gamekeeper”, estimated at 1 380 000 rubles. And the body of the Forester, unlike a car, will easily accommodate hunter’s trophies. And clean it easier.
