Applications

Applications Overview

The Unimog has been designed as the ultimate vehicle solution for an almost endless range of tasks. It provides the power and peace of mind to get the job done: carrying and operating attachments, or handling difficult terrain.

Energy

Energy

Britain’s electricity supply industry relies on the Mercedes-Benz Unimog not just to keep overhead lines working and the power on, but also to enable the latest ‘live line’ or ‘hot glove working’ technology. The Unimog crosses the most extreme terrain, and even fields with growing crops, to get technicians and engineers, their tools and equipment, direct to the working site.

Road Rail

Road Rail

The Unimog with rail guidance is the ideal partner for both road and rail applications. Its powerful diesel engine, high-performance transmission, all-wheel drive with differential locks and a torque converter for smooth starts, allow the Unimog to haul loads of up to 1,000 tonnes on track.

Airports

The Mercedes-Benz Unimog plays an important role in keeping airfields open and safe, all year round. In winter, it can be fitted with front-mounted snow ploughs or brushes, or even powerful snow blowers, to clear runways, taxiways and parking areas; and when the grass starts to grow, the Unimog is on hand for fast and effective gang mowing, or runway sweeping.

Winter Services

Winter Services

Winter roads maintenance, including salt spreaders, snow ploughs and snow blowers, is a vital service for all road users. The Mercedes-Benz Unimog incorporates the latest technology, plus rugged reliability, to provide a practical and cost-effective solution in the most difficult weather conditions.

Mowing

Mowing

The Unimog offers the ultimate package for mowing – from steep gradient roadside verges to parks and airfield perimeters. The range of PTO points, compact size and all-terrain capability, means the Unimog will access difficult working sites and then operate a wide range of mowing equipment, designed and manufactured by its ‘system partner’ Mulag.

Fire and Rescue Services

Fire and Rescue Services

The Mercedes-Benz Unimog has proved its capabilities in a wide variety of difficult situations. It has the ability to carry fire fighters and rescue workers, plus their equipment and machines, closer to the heart of the fire or disaster than any other vehicle.

Haulage

Haulage

In the UK it is illegal for an agricultural tractor to be used on a road ‘for hire or reward’ – so the solution is a vehicle that operates as a truck on roads, but also has formidable off-road ability. And that means the Mercedes-Benz Unimog, the ideal towing vehicle for trailers in a wide range of applications.

Construction

Construction

You have to be tough to work in the construction industry, and the Unimog is one of the toughest, most reliable and most versatile partners in any fleet. All terrain ability and the power and payload to carry and haul plant and equipment are vital on every site.

Agriculture and Arboriculture

Agriculture and Arboriculture

The Unimog is a type-approved commercial vehicle for both on and off road operations: and that means it is legally licensed to haul produce, machines and equipment on roads as well as on the land. Stay on the right side of the law, and meet the VOSA regulations, with the power of Unimog.

Highways Maintenance

Highways maintenance demands the most exacting accuracy and efficiency. The Unimog supplies a wide range of solutions, including sign and tunnel washing and road surface repairs.

Water Services and Drainage

Water Services and Drainage

The all-terrain Unimog plays a vital role in maintaining water management and drainage. Its inherent all-terrain ability ensures that the Unimog can reach the working site, which is almost invariably off road, and deliver the right equipment, personnel and service.
