Unimog UGE: All-terrain tool carrier
365 days of thirst for work: Year-round utilisation to full capacity
Municipal work is never done: countless small and large jobs need to be done quickly and reliably above all mowing, mulching and tree and brush control, winter services, sweeping and cleaning as well as loading and transporting. This is where the Unimog UGE can bring its versatility into play as a wide variety of tools and implements can be driven via to its standardised hydraulic, mechanical and electrical interfaces. Exchanging implements is faster and easier due to mounting points on the frame, mounting brackets on the sides and at the rear as well as ball points on the sub-frame of the platform floor. And together with its pulling power and drop-side body for towing a trailer, the compact vehicle is turned into a professional transporter capable of moving amazing amounts. And the new UHE is expanding these system solutions even more: its reinforced axles and weight-optimised construction allow it to carry heavier payloads.
Progress and safety, perfection and responsibility, performance and innovation – these are only a few of the values which Unimog customers quite rightly connect with Mercedes-Benz. We have reinterpreted these values for the new Unimog and the result is an implement carrier which achieves new standards in productivity, efficiency and environmental acceptability. It unites state-of-the-art truck technology and outstanding advanced system and implement-carrying solutions to provide a successful overall concept. Therefore it is truer than ever to say: The new Unimog is an investment with a future.
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog was designed especially for carrying implements. This has practical advantages right up to the present day. Its safety and reliability on the job together with its advanced system and implement-carrying solutions have made it a professional implement carrier for over 60 years.
The originally-named ‘Universal-Motor-Gerät’ (Universal Motorised Working Machine) is a vehicle which has been designed specifically for this purpose. It was only in connection with the many qualified body manufacturers and the wide know-how of the Unimog Dealers that a system could be created with a flexibility and productivity which is still unequalled today. But in spite of all its capabilities, its dimensions are still extremely compact – and it is because of this that the implement carrier is able to make full use of its efficiency almost everywhere.
