Roadshow packed with highlights.
In terms of weather, the Unimog Tour 2017 offered a little of everything this year: from snow showers in April to sweltering summer heat in June. It goes without saying that the Unimog models on show, around 30 in total, remained unfazed by it all. After all, the popular all-rounders are seasoned professionals when it comes to year-round reliability, even in adverse conditions.
Q&A with the experts.
This year the Unimog Tour visited nine different locations in Germany, from the Mecklenburg Lake District to Munich. It attracted about 3500 visitors, and there was plenty on offer for everyone – each of the one-day events' programmes was as diverse as the Unimog itself.
Convincing live demonstrations: an hour of concentrated power.
The audience was then treated to the highlight of the roadshow in the "Arena of Professionals": the live presentation of the vehicles with their range of bodies and implements. In addition to Unimog models for construction sites and the fire services, another focal point was on municipal applications. With its wide selection of body and implement solutions, the Unimog can be used flexibly and economically all year round: in winter maintenance, for road sweeping or as a mower with convenient multifunction joystick control. "The Unimog is a very strong brand when it comes to the municipal sector and can be used very flexibly," pointed out Hans-Peter Hackl of implement manufacturer Eco Technologies, attending for the first time as a new UnimogPartner by Mercedes-Benz.
Plenty of opportunities to get involved.
But it wasn't just the Unimog that was busy during the tour - there were activities for visitors too. There were plenty of crossed fingers, for example, when the raffle was drawn after the obligatory midday break. The attractive prizes, all taken from the popular Unimog Collection, are winging their way to the winners.
The Unimog Tour also saw the launch of Unimog Question Time. At each location a box was set up to collect questions about the Unimog. Various experts will shortly be providing answers via video. Definitely worth a look!
