Highways

Mowing, Sign Washing, Tunnel Cleaning, Trimming, Chipping and more

Highways operations cover a wide variety of different roles and many among them demand Unimogs stock-in-trade: High road speeds, variable terrain, multiple mounting points, powerful and controllable hydraulic systems and a variety of PTO drive options providing a wealth of opportunities and potential new revenue streams for the highways contractor.  Not only that but Unimog drives itself to the work site, quickly and efficiently, carrying all of its own tools and implements, even, possibly towing another trailer behind it with additional highways kit.

Clean and powerful Euro 6 engines deliver incredible reliability, fuel economy and 1400 hours between services.  The mounting points and multiple drives systems mean that triple mowing decks can be used in one efficient pass. When Unimog is used around-the-clock and around-the-year in a variety of highways roles, it can deliver a level of productivity and profit that few machines can match.

Safety is one of the key requirements of modern highways operations and here, too, Unimog delivers:  All wheel ABS disc brakes for starters.  Then there is the very large glass area giving maximum visibility, the short nose reduces the distance to the front-mounted implement for better control and visibility.  Coil spring suspension not allows increased suspension travel but also allows for a greater degree of steering turn lock-to-lock. This, coupled with a short wheelbase, short overhang and narrow track dimensions allows for very small turning circle and hence, great maneuverability. On high speed roads and motorways the Unimogs rigid ladder chassis, high-backed air suspended seat and 3 point safety belt protects its driver from rear impact while working on the hard-shoulder, unlike a traditional tractor where the driver sits at the rear of the vehicle and nearest to the point of impact.

You can view all the safety features of Unimog, as tested by the ADAC organisation in Germany, in these fascinating videos.
