Re: Bizon Super Z056 in England
This was the export version, as sold in (amongst others)
Denmark, Holland, Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
The grain tank (behind the cab) was enlarged by making it
taller, which increased the capacity from 2,500 to 3,000
litres. A filter screen was fitted above the radiator
(visible behind the top of the grain tank), which could be
laid on its side for transport purposes.

Alex, do you know if Bizon combines were exported to Belgium
as well ? I have never seen them here.
Re: Bizon Super Z056 in England
I don't know if they were sold in Belgium, but I have been
told by a French gentleman that they were not sold in
France. They have been exported to 24 countries around the
world, but I don't have a complete list. Countries that I
know of are: Brazil; Bulgaria; Czechoslovakia; Denmark;
Finland; Great Britain; Greece; Holland; Hungary; India;
Iran; Ireland; Italy; Sweden; Syria; Tunisia; USA & USSR.
Re: Bizon Super Z056 in England
I forgot to mention Ecuador and Pakistan, which are more
recent customers. Sorry!
Re: Bizon Super Z056 in England
I wonder, why do the ZO56s in Poland have smaller grain
tank? I suppose that the export version could have had
stronger turbo powered engine so additional kilograms of
grain combined with straw cutting mechanism were not a
problem. Am I right?
Re: Bizon Super Z056 in England
I think there were a couple of reasons why Polish Z040s,
Z050s & Z056s had the smaller grain tank. As you probably
know, all Polish 40s & 50s, and the majority of 56s, didn't
have cabs. The lower tank height made it easy for the driver
to open and check during harvesting. It was also easier to
get inside the tank and open the access door to get to the
fuel pump side of the engine. I also remember seeing drivers
climb from the platform across the tank to either check the
engine or clean dust off the radiator grille. This would
have been more awkward with the taller tank.

With a cab, the taller tank looks acceptable, but I saw a
cabless 56 in England a few years ago, and it just didn't
look right. (Denmark also had some cabless Bizons).

The export models probably had larger tanks because they
were competing on open markets, so the extra capacity no
doubt compared favourably with western machines. British 56s
had the standard non turbo SW 400 engine.
