Hamburger concrete has two new Unimog U 530 featuring special body mountings which have enhanced its on-site operations.
Both are highly individual units – quite unique in fact. Because Gerhard Hamburger knows what he wants. He had quite clear ideas in mind when ordering his two Unimog – as detailed by his Unimog salesman Frieder Füllemann.
Two silver arrows for tough applications.
What emerged from their consultations were two 'silver arrows' which offer a unique range of uses: A U 530 as a tractor rig, and a U 530 with a crane mounted on a Unimog for the first time in such a form – yet another first for the all-rounder from Mercedes.
Gerhard Hamburger is very much aware of the special features of his treasured assets: Both are liveried in metallic grey. 'Hamburger 1', as he calls his tractor rig, features large 495/70 tyres on 24-inch wheels. They ensure traction even on unsurfaced ground such as sandy construction sites. The secret lies in a two-tonne ballast weight discreetly built-in to the platform bed, which delivers maximum traction even in low-loader transport operations. It also features a rear-end mounted platform with a sight triangle. The good all-round visibility and compact dimensions of the Unimog are of particular benefit when manoeuvring around tight construction sites.
The 'Hamburger 2' unit is also a specialist: A crane-Unimog fitted with a MKG crane, on which little recalls the features of a mass-production vehicle. The crane is a custom build comprising two different crane units tailored to individual customer wishes by MKG. The crane system thus has a jib length of up to 23 metres horizontally, with a maximum lift of 33 metre-tonnes.
