Unimog presents itself as a wanderer between the operational worlds.
Sow joy, save the mood, reap applause: The Unimog is on display at a host of events in autumn 2018. And demonstrates its versatile operational range in the process.
The special-purpose truck will put in stops in Nordhorn, Stuttgart and Dresden for the agricultural and fire-fighting industries – at the Nordhorn Field Days, the Landwirtschaftliches Hauptfest and the Florian 2018 trade fair.
The all-rounder from Mercedes-Benz also presented itself at the IAA Commercial Vehicles and the InnoTrans trade fair for road-rail.
Nordhorn Field Days.
The MB-trac and Unimog Field Days in Nordhorn are already yearly mandatory dates for many fans. At the event organised by Youngtimer Landtechnik im Einsatz e.V. from 22 to 23 September 2018, numerous demonstrations from the agricultural field and a big supporting programme awaited the more than 5000 guests – including a "Field Day Quarter Mile Race". Special topic of the 5th edition of the Field Days: MB-trac and Unimog in forestry operations.
