MAZ-5309 is a Belarusian all-wheel drive large-capacity off-road truck, produced by the Minsk Automobile Plant since 2008. The MAZ-5340 truck was taken as the basis for this model.

The MAZ-5309 truck is a clone of the civilian all-wheel drive MAZ-5340 truck. The fundamental differences are single-pitch tires and all-wheel drive. All this allows the vehicle to be used as a concrete mixer, fire truck, truck crane, tank, truck with a manipulator or communication vehicle.

The car cabin is not equipped with a sleeping place. The suspended driver’s seat is equipped with seat belts and can be adjusted by the driver. For firefighting vehicles, the plant produces a special chassis with a double cabin.

Initially, the car was equipped with the Russian YaMZ-238 engine, but later modifications with the Belarusian-Chinese Weichai engine appeared. The gearbox was originally taken from the German manufacturer ZF Friedrichshafen, then was replaced by the Russian YaMZ-239. Tires with a size of 14.00R20 are produced by the Belarusian Belshina or the French Michelin.
