  • The Unimog Concept
    Moving Mountains. The Unimog.

    The Mercedes-Benz Unimog is a vehicle in a league of its own: A work and tractor vehicle in one. It combines great versatility on the job with fast speeds on roads and outstanding off-road capabilities. With its versatile attachment and mounting areas at front and rear, it can be used all year round. Whether on fields or roads: the Unimog is the universal transport solution. It is much more cost-effective and faster than comparable systems – in particular when it is necessary to get a job done both as soon as possible and efficiently as during harvesting, fertilizing, or maintenance operations.
Product Portfolio
  • The Unimog. The cost-effective transport solution - Fast and reasonable to run over any terrain

    • Transport, Loading and Handling

    • Bigger payloads for less fuel.

      Cost-effectiveness is the key word when the Unimog is used for agricultural operations – whether for running equipment or transporting loads. With its up to 40 t overall haulage weight and thanks to its high payload and handling qualities, the Unimog is able to deal with large capacity and heavy loads both fast and effectively. Due to its short chassis, it is able to make the optimal use of the maximum transport length of 18,75 m (61.5 ft.) allowed in the EU – either with several axles or even with two trailers. Front and rear-mounted implements can also be attached and removed very quickly so that the Unimog is always ready and waiting for a whole range of jobs that may need doing.

      Your advantages at a glance:
      • Low-curb weight, high payload up to 8 t and great load capacity of up to 10 m3 with the flat bed
      • Up to 40 t overall haulage weight with high tractive power and driving stability on fields and roads
      • Transport speeds of up to 90 km/h (56.5 mph) suitable for motorway use
      • Lower fuel consumption
      • Infinitely variable working speeds possible from 0 – 25 km/h (15.6 mph) with hydrostatic drive
      • High tractive power on both fields and roads with the central tire inflation system and coarsely studded single tires
      • Optimal vision and very safe driving with modern panoramic cab
    • Economic Efficiency and the Environment

    • Cost-effective and future-oriented operation.

      The Unimog not only cuts a good figure during agricultural operations over fields and roads, but also in direct comparison with other vehicles: The advantages of its system make it more versatile, cost-effective and efficient than other systems and with its Euro 5-compatible engines it already complies with the high emission standards for commercial vehicles. Combined with the reliability and durability of a Mercedes-Benz, the Unimog is a safe investment for the future of your fleet of vehicles.

      Your advantages at a glance:
      • Lower fuel consumption: under 19 l/h average consumption for transport operations with up to 21 t trailer load (DLG Focus Test 07/08).
      • Eco-friendly and fit for the future with engines complying with Euro 5 due to BlueTec® technology.
      • Efficient with its high payload and great load capacity.
      • Time-saving with transport speeds of up to 90 km/h (56.5 mph), also on motorways.
      • Great off-road performance which also goes easy on the soil due to unique chassis concept with 4-wheel-drive, single tires and central tire inflation system.
      • Versatile, thanks to quick-change attachment and removal of implements.
      • Low life-cycle costs (long maintenance intervals, lower tire costs).
      • Very cost-effective due to all-year-round operation.
      • Fuel savings when gear-changing on roads, infinitely variable when using
        hydrostatic drive.
      • Compact dimensions, extremely maneuverable.
      • Professional implement-carrier, truck and field tractor in one.
    • Chassis Expertise

    • Arrive fast and safely.

      Whether on the field or on the road: with the Unimog you get where you want to go without making any detours. This is due to a chassis concept that is not supplied by any other manufacturer worldwide:
      Unusually high ground clearance, very good angles of approach and departure, great stability when not moving as well as excellent traction and speeds of up to 90 km/h (56.5 mph) on sealed roads.

      Your advantages at a glance:
      • Four-wheel-drive provides excellent traction and high tractive power even off-road
      • Central tire inflation system (optional, ex factory) prevents field damage; lowers fuel consumption and wear during operations
      • No leading phase, as all wheels are the same size
      • Exceptionally high ground clearance due to portal axles
      • Extremely safe operation when driving or stationary due to good angles of approach and departure and vehicle’s low centre of gravity
      • Driving comfort plus – due to fully sprung chassis
    • System and Implement-Carrying Expertise

    • Keep working, when others have to wait.

      Work efficiently and comfortably all year round. Unimog makes it possible.

  • Zetros

  • The Zetros is a highly capable off-road truck designed for extreme all-terrain operation. This all-wheel-drive cab-behind-engine vehicle draws on the trusted chassis and drive technology of the standard Mercedes-Benz truck model series – combined with an innovative cab concept. It was developed bearing in mind the specific technical requirements of fire-fighting operations and assignments for relief organisations as well as those of the energy industry and the particularly demanding tasks in the construction business.

    Engine – powerful for off-road assignments

    The core of the new Zetros’ drive system is a 6-cylinder in-line engine with charge-air cooling (OM 926 LA). Euro 5 compliant, it is particularly environmentally compatible. This compact, light turbo-diesel with a displacement of 7.2 litres delivers 240 kW and achieves a maximum torque of 1300 Nm at engine speeds from 1200 to 1600 rpm.

    Chassis variants
    The new Zetros is available in a two-axle version, the Zetros 1833 A 4x4, with a 4800 mm wheelbase, and a three-axle version, the Zetros 2733 A 6x6, with a wheelbase of 4750 mm + 1450 mm. Chassis weights are 8.1 t and 10.5 t, respectively, with permissible gross vehicle weights of 16/18 t and 25/27 t, respectively. The standard platform reaches a length of 5.1 m (2-axle version), or 6.2 m (3-axle); other vehicle dimensions can be provided on request.

    This way, the Zetros offers a great variety of superstructure and special body variants, and thus consistently complements the Mercedes-Benz truck program, which has proven itself all over the world.
