Since 1946, the Unimog has been used not only in agriculture and forestry, but also for fire rescue and the emergency services, by local and national authorities, military, the construction industry, mining as well as in motor sport and as a lifestyle product. A professional for the professionals who demand outstanding performance combined with absolute cost-effectiveness for all-year-around operations.
70 years on, only one commercial vehicle can accept any challenge and tackle it with the right end result, every time: the Unimog. No other commercial vehicle in the world can function as a tractor, towing vehicle, truck, firefighting and exploration vehicle, bus and working machine in one.
There was only one way to show this machine’s magnificence and unrivalled abilities first hand – A Unimog only dedicated event named “Unimog Live”. Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK offered a number of customers and Unimog enthusiasts the opportunity to put these impressive machines to the test, and learn more about the Unimog’s capabilities and countless applications suitable for multiple types of business with a jam packed day of Unimog immersion.
Visitors tested the off-road capability of a range of Unimog models at the off-road test circuit at Millbrook Proving ground, as well as one military Zetros. This was complimented with Body Builder demonstrations on 10 different vehicles providing insight into how the professionals utilise a Unimog for different types of business, from road rail and haulage to highway maintenance and agriculture.
