For years the ZAGRO Group has been a leading Expert Partner when it comes to the adaptable Mercedes-Benz Unimog where it continues to demonstrate its excellence and versatility on both rail and road, convincing customers of its economy and great flexibility.

Depending on the equipment and body selected, the new BlueTec 6 generation of the Unimog with its pioneering and environmentally-friendly innovations is a fully-fledged shunting vehicle or a professional workhorse for numerous applications in the field of railway infrastructure.

Perfectly tuned for towing loads of up to 1,000 t and equipped to provide outstanding working and driving comfort, the new road-rail Unimog is uniquely versatile. And decisively more economical. The road-rail Unimog isn’t just cheaper than a locomotive, it also proves its worth when it comes to running costs too – in particular thanks to much lower fuel and service product consumption. Even in terms of maintenance, service and regular intermediate and main inspections, the Unimog saves you a packet compared to a shunting locomotive. And not least because you can drive the vehicle yourself to a Service Partner near you. The road-rail Unimog is an investment which pays off.
