About Us

History:  South Cave Tractors Ltd (SCT) has been selling Mercedes Benz Unimogs for more than 40 years from its base in East Yorkshire.  Location is very good for access to all parts of the country now after relocation to new premises in 2007 coincided with the purchase of the business by its current owner; MD Anthony Levitt.  Tony has been with the company almost since incorporation and this long history, combined with his strong mechanical engineering background, has made him among the most knowledgeable people on the subject outside of the Unimog factory and has, in the past, assisted with design and development there through his close association with many of the key factory engineers and designers.

Team SCT

Staff:  Our employees are a matter of great pride and strength at SCT with a small group of highly skilled and experienced people including 2 time-served Mercedes-Benz mechanics, a skilled designer/welder/fabricator producing quality and innovative work.  A full-time apprentice is attending college while gaining experience for a future career with the company.  Invoicing, payments, purchasing, stock control and numerous other office duties are handled efficiently by one full-time and one part-time administrator.  Sales, technical support, IT and marketing are handled by the front office staff.

Market sectors:  SCT are involved in a huge variety of industry sectors.  The versatility of our products means we are involved in everything from Agriculture, Energy and Utilities including renewable energy, landscape and Forestry, Environment, Local Authorities and their contractors, Construction industries, Plant Hire, Air and Seaports, Road, Rail and Roadrail, Emergency Services.  Even charities and the occasional overland adventurer come our way looking for some specialised vehicle to fulfil a very specific role.  Most recently we have been working with key contractors on the exciting and ambitious Crossrail project in London.

Engineering expertise:  There can be few companies that can have done more to develop Mercedes-Benz Unimog for the UK agricultural market than South Cave Tractors Ltd.  Since the early days of MB-Trac mounted sprayers, through the development of forward-control Unimog designs, and onward to today’s remarkably efficient and productive S-Trac demount platform, the company has established itself as the leading expert in agricultural Unimog applications.  In its latest incarnation the S-trac demonstrates all of those years of design expertise condensed into what could be the most productive and practical self-propelled spray delivery platform on the market.
