Unimog U 529

Operating concept

Tailored for your business's needs.

The operating concept1,2 of the implement carrier has been tailored to the needs of operators and drivers: the Unimog's instrument cluster can be controlled using the multi-function steering wheel3. There the driver can check the vehicle's oil level, air pressure and alter the Unimog's hydraulic system settings. Gear selection, engine brake activation and the EasyDrive synergetic traction drive system are controlled via the steering column.A removable multifunction joystick can be found in the centre console allowing the operator to control vehicle speed and implements. Operation is especially flexible and the user can control the system in accordance with their needs and desires.

The Unimog features many practical stowage compartments and includes a CD/radio with Bluetooth® hands free mobile phone connection.

Those spending longer periods of time in the new cab will appreciate the efficient air-conditioning and heating system: regardless of the weather, it ensures comfortable temperatures in the vehicle. 

A removable multifunction joystick can be found in the centre console allowing the operator to control both vehicle speed and implements. It is also used to operate the synchronised Electronic Quick Reverse (EQR) reversing group.
