Portal axles

High ground clearance.

Application versatility is the trademark of the Unimog. Its reinforced portal axles with hub reduction gear guarantee high ground clearance for the most diverse of tasks – even off the beaten track.

To this end, the differential and the drive shafts connected with it are repositioned higher up. The axle tube and differential lie above the wheel centre. In this way, obstacles are easier to overcome and the vehicle's centre of gravity remains low.

Its axle suspension is reinforced and can withstand the greatest loads. The axle design is also incredibly robust: It makes great standard load capacities possible.
