Britain’s electricity supply industry relies of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog not just to keep overhead lines working and the power on, but also to enable the latest ‘live line’ or ‘hot glove working’ technology.
The Unimog crosses the most extreme and difficult terrain, and also crosses fields with growing crops, to get technicians and engineers, their tools and equipment, direct to the working site. It will operate a two or three man access platform to raise engineers safely to the overhead lines, or act as a reliable, high capacity, secure support vehicle.
The Unimog travels on any roads and at the speeds and economy of normal commercial vehicles, while its all-terrain ability means it handles difficult terrain with consummate ease. Utility fleet managers choose the Unimog because, while other vehicles will do parts of the job, they don’t offer a year-round, reliable service that creates confidence and peace of mind, and performs at the highest standards of productivity.
