Hello friends!) I'm one of Russia here. I live in Siberia, near the beautiful Lake Baikal.
I have Elgrand E50 for 5 years. But I think I’m with him all my life).
Before Elgrand, there were enough cars and Nissan Patrol (Y60 / 61) and Isuzu Bighorn, there was a Russian military SUV UAZ Hunter. I mixed enough mud in our taiga. But then there was a family, children and I had to realize my old dream - an all-wheel drive minibus. I chose for a long time and looked at Delika and Alphard and so on. But Elgrand won over everyone. Its main advantage is the QD32 engine. In Russia, the family of diesel engines TD27, 42, QD32 is called "millionaires", because such engines in our harsh climate and with poor fuel are capable of driving a million kilometers and this is not a joke, but a fact.
Options: QD 32 diesel. 4x4.

Here I will sometimes write about the operation of my tractor and problems) Let's call this the "Tractor" diary))

and as always - sorry for my english)

There are enough problems) The machine is old and with solid mileage) or rather, I bought its mileage is 290,000 km. 2 weeks after the purchase, my speedometer broke down)) and I drove for 5 years without a speedometer))) now, I redid the wiring and restored the speedometer circuit. and it works. For 5 years, I think I have driven more than one hundred kilometers)) On average, I drive about 1900-2500 km per month, this is only for work, not counting travel and my worries)
Considering that EL had many owners ..

This is what my El looked like before becoming a tractor)
Due to work, objects are often located in hard-to-reach places. I had to lift EL.
This is the first trip to Lake Baikal on the updated El.
Suspension lift + BF goodrich tires - ideal for long off-road trips.
