In 2013, the Central Factory for the Railway Machinery OJSC advanced the initiative to develop a new vehicle based on the L-538 loader of Liebherr company.

For now, an experimental prototype has been developed and is now being tested, with test campaign completion scheduled for the second quarter of 2017.

Compared to the L-538, the KDMD features lower weight and dimensions and increased travel speed. The reliability and maintainability have been improved.

The vehicle’s protection has been improved with armoured plates protecting cabin, main units and hydraulic drives.
