Unimog U 218 - U 530

Road-rail

Impressive economy, maximum flexibility.

Start off by shunting heavy loads on rails, then skip off the tracks and drive on the road to where the next rail task awaits you. Only one vehicle can do this – the Unimog from Mercedes-Benz. For years, the versatile road-rail Unimog has proven itself on rail and road, convincing customers of its economy and great flexibility. That's because the professional road-rail Unimog implement carrier can tackle the most diverse range of tasks, ranging from maintenance of overhead lines to track works as well as clearing snow from the rails or cutting clearance spaces in trees and bushes.

Even the Unimog BlueTec 6 generation with its environmentally friendly innovations is – depending on the equipment and body fitted – a fully fledged shunting vehicle. Perfectly tuned for a towing capacity of up to 1000 t and equipped with phenomenal working and driving comfort, the Unimog isn't just much cheaper to purchase than a shunting locomotive, it pays off in terms of running costs too: and that's not just thanks to its low fuel consumption, but also in terms of maintenance and service costs. One such example is the fact that the vehicle can be driven directly to a nearby service partner.
