The Unimog is the best choice for contractors in agricultural operations.
The days are getting longer, the grass is growing and the temperature is climbing – for farmers, spring is the wake-up call for a new, demanding and work-intensive season. At the same time, structural change in the industry means greater challenges. The number of agricultural businesses in Germany has diminished by around 40 percent since the start of the millennium. Partly as a result of that, the area of agricultural land per business has grown from an average of 36.3 ha to 58.6 ha, which now leaves farmers to maintain one third more ground than before. Service providers and contractors who help with harvesting, fertilising, crop spraying and ground preparation are therefore gaining in importance. A reliable partner by their side: the Unimog.
The Unimog offers the best basic conditions for flexible operations and rapidly changing between various different applications. Together with numerous bodybuilders, Mercedes-Benz has developed a broad range of vehicle and implement combinations for agricultural use. As part of a live demonstration in Rendsburg, Unimog vehicles equipped for agricultural operations took each other on head-to-head.
