Winter Service

Winter maintenance is about more than just snow ploughs and so is Unimog

Unimog has the onboard PTO power, hydraulic services, mounting points and maneuverability for Gritter/Spreaders, Snow Brushes and Snow Cutter-Blowers.  And you can be sure that Unimog will actually get you to the problem area when many other winter machines are cut off by…well…by heavy snow.  That’s why Unimog and manufacturers of quality winter equipment such as Schmidt, Zaugg and Karlbacher open up the Grossglockner pass each year with a range of extremely capable vehicles.

Total commitment against snow and ice: The new Unimog for winter services.
A sudden onset of winter, black ice, snow storms – for keeping roads clear in winter uncompromising, reliable types are needed – just like the Mercedes-Benz Unimog. In addition to summer mowing, it is clearing snow and cutting it back which are counted as its prime activities. Thanks to its permanent all-wheel drive, differential locks and single tyres, with snow chains as optional extras, as well as the powerful mechanical and hydraulic drives, the Unimog is able to combat chaotic road conditions in winter. In addition to many other practical functions, the following detail goes to prove just how specialised the Unimog is for doing winter services. Especially for the work with snow ploughs, the hydraulic system in the Unimog has a snowplough relief at its disposal which transfers part of the weight to the front axle. This increases the traction and driving stability of the vehicle and reduces wear and tear on both road surface and snowplough.

Compact and maneuverable (even more so with a rear steering axle option fitted), the Unimog is excellent for towns and villages as well as the more remote and difficult to reach locations.

The simple fact is that Unimog will arrive at speed under its own power, not on the back of a low loader that will be stranded long before it reaches the trouble spot.

The list of equipment design and manufacture for Unimog is impressive and covers gritter spreaders, both full demount and smaller designs that drop into a rear body; straight snow ploughs, Vee ploughs and adjustable ploughs, snow brushes, de-icing units and more.
