Winter maintenance

Clearing the right way

When everything is snow- and ice-covered, the Mercedes-Benz Unimog really warms up to it and provides you with all it takes for snow clearing and gritting operations. The most advanced technology and intelligent ideas ensure this. The best example: the heat-insulated composite fibre panoramic cab. Here you can work comfortably even under the harshest winter conditions thanks to its programmable auxiliary heating as well as seat and windscreen heating. Its deep-drawn side windows combined with a large rear window provide an outstanding view of all working areas. Even at temperatures as low as 30 degrees below zero, it stays cosy in the Unimog. And no wonder: with its heated air-drier, engine block pre-heating and more powerful alternator – all supplied ex factory.

Add to that its permanent all-wheel drive, differential locks in front and rear axles, disc brakes on all four wheels, anti-lock braking system and – should it be necessary – snow chains for each wheel. This enables optimum traction and full control, even on icy surfaces. Snow clearing is easy with its EQR synchromesh quick-change forwards and reversing system with pre-selector. The Unimog winter package is rounded off by three more highlights: the front PTO for snow blower and snow thrower with up to 150 kW operating power, a clearing width of up to 3 metres and automatic gritters with a bin volume of up to 4.4 m³ for long clearing routes.
