Mercedes Benz has suspended the import of new unimogs until further notice. Import of new Unimogs for special purposes might still be considered.
Key Features of the New Unimog:
- Comfortable driver’s cab made of fibre composites
- Permanent all-wheel drive and Telligent transmission
- Environmentally compatible Euro 3 engines from 110 kW to 205 kW
- Compact dimensions and high payloads
- Four attachment/mounting areas for maximum flexibility when working with implements
- New VarioPower power hydraulics and Vario Pilot transferable steering
- Greatly improved cost-benefit ratio
In Addition to the Unimogs listed on this page Mross Import Service Ltd can supply other used units at special request.
In spring 2000, Mercedez Benz launched new Unimog ranges, which from the point of view of economy and technology, have been specifically designed to satisfy the changed requirements of industry, local authorities, the construction and energy industries and road-maintenance departments concerning flexible implement carriers and powerful tractors. An implement system partnership is being implemented for the new Unimog series, in which the vehicles and implements have been developed and tested in partnership with leading implement manufacturers both in Germany and abroad.
The outward appearance of the new Unimog generation leaves no room for doubt as to its family affiliations and at the same time provides evidence of the field-related orientation of the numerous innovations incorporated. The large windscreen, the low-edged side windows and a large rear window ensure excellent all-round vision. This is an important safety aspect, especially when working with implements attached and mounted. The cab made of lightweight fibre composite is characterized by great strength and anti-corrosion properties. The optional transferable steering system, VarioPilot, in conjunction with the power hydraulics system, VarioPower, allows a single operator to work safely with and control several implements simultaneously.
Inside the cab, the driver finds a workplace that leaves nothing to be desired with regard to ride comfort, equipment control and functionality. All important controls for the vehicle, the electronically controlled Telligent transmission and the VarioPower power hydraulics, are combined in the centre console. As an option, the three new Unimog series, U300 to U500, can be fitted with a totally new VarioPilot transferable steering system. This enables the entire steering column, together with the instrument panel and pedals, to be repositioned from the driver’s side to the co-driver’s side in next to no time. It allows drivers to choose the best seating positions to enable them to control and watch the implements being used for the job at hand – for example, when using mowers and clearance cutters or self-loading sweepers at the curb side of the vehicle. Comfortable seats with integrated 3-point seat belts, a heating and ventilation system and an air-conditioning system fitted as standard are further examples of field and requirement-oriented solutions integrated into the new Unimog.
Propulsion for the new Unimog vehicles is provided by environmentally compatible Euro 3 diesel engines with four or six cylinders, that span a power output range from 110 kW/150 hp to 205 kW/280 hp. They transfer their tractive force to the four permanently driven wheels by means of a fully synchronized manual transmission. Up to 24 gears are selected by means of the electro-pneumatic Telligent gearshift system, that has already proven itself in Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty trucks over a period of some years now. With this system, the driver moves the gear knob forwards and backwards within a single gate. The appropriate gear is calculated automatically by the vehicle electronics and engaged by a pneumatic cylinder in the transmission when the clutch is depressed. The new Unimog series have permanent all-wheel drive with an interaxle differential. The differential locks – standard on the rear axle, optional for the front axle – can be activated/deactivated while driving at any speed. To assist transporting and towing heavy loads, the vehicles can be fitted with an optional torque converter clutch which offers power transmission up to 170 kW/230hp.
