System competence

Top performance in the most diverse of disciplines, 365 days a year.

The Unimog implement carrier has more than earned its reputation as a workhorse. It delivers top-level performance in the most diverse of disciplines, 365 days a year. This is thanks to the impressive four attachment and mounting areas which the Unimog offers. The hydraulic, mechanical and electrical supply of implements makes working particularly flexible whilst also providing the right type of drive for any of the innumerable tasks the Unimog will face.

The Unimog brings many innovative solutions onto the road which ensure its high level of efficiency and significantly reduced emissions. This includes fulfilling the Euro VI emissions norm, but also physical components designed specifically for the Unimog, such as its modern diesel engines, powerful transmissions and the axles with high load-bearing capacity.

The Unimog implement carrier is more compact and manoeuvrable than any other truck of its kind: short wheelbases starting at 2800 mm, the small turning circle and the optional rear-axle auxiliary steering simplify manoeuvring, even in the tightest of spaces. Despite these small dimensions, something which is big are the user-friendliness and ergonomics of the modern cab. Here, numerous requests from users were also implemented as part of the vehicle's development. The comfortable seating position behind the front axle, simple implement operation using the multifunction joystick and the settings options for all vehicle functions in the instrument cluster are just a few examples of the high driving and operating comfort which can be experienced in the Unimog implement carrier.

A highlight of the Unimog is the EasyDrive synergetic traction drive system. It combines the advantages of the fuel-saving manual transmission for journeys up to 89 km/h with a hydrostatic traction drive system. The advantage: the working speed can be steplessly set at any speed between 0 and 50 km/h, independently of the engine speed and can then be maintained using the cruise control function. What's more, the driver can also choose to make an instantaneous switch between the stepless and mechanical drive system when changing locations.

Highly specialised and certified implement manufacturers and bodybuilders have created a reliable system solution which makes it possible for customers to use the vehicle to the full for a wide variety of applications. The close collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and our partners means that we can ensure long-term high quality of the entire vehicle.
