bauma 2019: Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks will be presenting some technical highlights.
In April the exhibition season will start for Unimog & co. – and it will start big with the world's largest exhibition for the construction industry in Munich. This is a particular highlight for fans and expert visitors as this international trade fair only takes place every three years.
The full spectrum of the construction machinery industry.
2019 will be particularly exciting for the construction industry when the Unimog, Econic and Zetros make their big entrance at the exhibition grounds in Munich. From 8 to 14 April 2019, the world's leading trade fair for construction equipment, construction material and mining machinery will take place in the Bavarian capital for the 32nd time. And so the Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks for special operations in the construction and mining industries are a must at the stand in Hall B4. The vehicles that will be presented on the 2000 m² of floorspace include a brand new Unimog with bitumen sprayer from Schäfer and a front broom. Meanwhile, Econic and a Zetros complete the ensemble bearing the stars on the adjacent outdoor area. And that's not all: numerous other Special Trucks fitted with a wide range of implements can be seen at the bodybuilder stands.

Unimog: the all-rounder with transferable steering.
The Unimog feels right at home at the bauma exhibition – this time it's a white Unimog U 427 with a Euro VI engine and an increased towing capacity up to a maximum of 20 t. The all-rounder is also fitted with an appropriate trailer brake, mounting brackets at the rear, front power take-off and work lamps on the rear of the cab. The VarioPilot® transferable steering guarantees an ideal view of the construction site at any time – the steering wheel and pedals can be transferred from one side of the cab to the other in the shortest time. This ensures that work in the construction business is both safe and efficient.
Econic: a concrete mixer with added safety.
The Econic doesn't just add a touch of colour to business: a light green Econic 3235 L equipped as concrete mixer shows that it is exactly the right choice for construction sites at the heart of inner-city hustle and bustle – when it comes to safety, it currently sets the standard. Its assistance systems include a reversing warning system, Sideguard Assist, a blind spot camera system, Active Brake Assist 4 and an instrument cluster with video function. Thus drivers can rely on this Special Truck even in unclear situations or when turning and manoeuvring.

Zetros: no-compromise off-road truck.
Also present at bauma again: the Zetros. With its reinforced frame, differential locks and hydraulic gearshifting, the robust off-road vehicle is perfect for particularly difficult operations in the mining and construction industries. Its maximum flexibility rendered by the bonnet design promises perfect mobility even on narrow building sites or underground. The Zetros 4043 K 6x4 in the 40 t weight variant will gleam in dark orange at this year's exhibition stand. Equipped with a reversing warning system, rotating beacons, a towing coupling, a cyclone prefilter and a fuel filter with heated water separator, the Zetros demonstrates what is required for operation in the construction industry: safety, profitability and robust resilience.
Digitisation and sustainability.
This year, bauma will be much bigger – thanks to a new hall structure and a consistent optimisation of the whole trade fair area. More than 60,000 expert visitors from all over the world are expected in Munich during the seven days of the exhibition. And the 3500 exhibitors from 58 countries are ready: because bauma offers everything that keeps the construction industry moving.
The attractive supporting program excels with top-quality presentations, country specials and press conferences. Rich in tradition, the bauma Forum looks not only at the big subjects of digitisation, efficiency and sustainability but also at special-interest topics with podium discussions and speeches accompanied by simultaneous translation. After all there is a reason that bauma is the benchmark for the industry.
Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks and the bodybuilders involved are looking forward to your visit!
