The paper presents a hybrid model for decision-making support based on D numbers, the FUCOM method and fuzzified RAFSI method, used for solving the selection of the group of construction machines for enabling mobility. By applying D numbers, the input parameters for the calculation of the weight coefficients of the criteria were provided. The calculation of the weight coefficients of the criteria was performed using the FUCOM method. The best alternative was selected using the fuzzified method, which was conditioned by the specificity of the issue so that in this case, the selection of the best alternative was made using the fuzzified RAFSI method.
