Product benefits that set the standards.

Compact, safe, ergonomic, with versatile drive options:
The Unimog can do almost anything.

Product benefits

Compact.

The Unimog is still one of the most compact commercial vehicles in its weight and performance class. Its power is plain to see in practically every situation.

Our engineers at Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks are working on developing the Unimog every day, but it always keeps its typical features like compact dimensions and small turning circles. In particular, its short front-end dimensions, low overall height and narrow width offer enormous advantages when working. After all, the Unimog has not only been designed to use its power on wide roads, but in smaller spaces too. This makes the equipment carrier especially productive. Because getting through narrow streets and manoeuvring in tight spaces has now been made simple – and quicker too!

  • Compact dimensions with outstanding working characteristics
  • Short wheelbase from 2.8 m
  • Turning circle similar to that used in passenger cars from 12.6 m in U 219
  • Auxiliary rear axle steering additionally increases manoeuvrability in U 423-U 535

Turning circle:
Truck 15.2 m | Unimog from 12.6 m | Passenger car 11.0 m

All-wheel steering.

The all-wheel steering option enhances the Unimog's already high levels of manoeuvrability even further: it reduces the turning circle by around 20%, keeping the vehicle easy to manoeuvre in virtually every situation and almost completely eliminating the need for backing up around tight bends.

With its all-wheel steering, the Unimog can also be driven with all wheels rotating in the same direction – so-called crab steering. This mode offsets the downhill force when working on sidewards inclines and also has advantages when working on snow banks. In rear axle steering mode, the rear wheels tighten the turn, making reversing so much easier.

Compact and yet more compact: the Unimog U 219.

This vehicle stands out from the crowd with an extremely short wheelbase of 2,800 mm, a turning circle of 12.6 m, compact vehicle dimensions and a permissible gross weight of 7.5 –10 t, making it possible for this Unimog to work in the tightest of spaces, from old town quarters to low bridges. Its smaller wheels makes its overall height lower too.

Fighting fires in the tightest of spaces.

Narrow alleys, dense forest paths, and no time to lose: Fire service vehicles must meet the highest standards. Together with the Italian body manufacturer BAI,  Unimog's general representative Henne Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH and Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks are now proud to present an extremely agile equipment variant of the Unimog.

Manoeuvrability matters.

Heiko Kohn, Head of HK Service in Midlum on the island of Föhr, has chosen a U 427 with a length of 3.15 m and attachment plate and K80 mounting for a dump truck. It's perfect for him. "We can get into any yard with it, we’ve got the flexibility to set down the skips almost anywhere."

Safety.

As a state-of-the-art commercial vehicle, the Unimog makes no compromises when it comes to safety. With its active and passive safety systems, Unimog users and other road users alike are kept well protected.

Its key features are: short front-end assembly and panoramic cab for outstanding forwards visibility, directional stability, ABS, precision steering, optimal axle load distribution and low-vibration cab with three-point seat belt and headrest.

The exterior design with a windscreen wiper system fitted to the roof guarantees optimal windscreen cleaning, while the headlamps with daytime driving lights improve visibility and vehicle perception. The optional front-end camera and monitoring system also improves vision in the vicinity just ahead of the vehicle and makes the mounting of implements easier at the front.

  • Panoramic cab
  • Lane stability
  • ABS
  • Optimum axle load distribution
  • Cab stability in accordance with ECE-R29/3

Camera system with monitor.

Optimising the view and simultaneously facilitating the coupling of implements are the two main advantages of the optional camera system. This includes a front-mounted and rear-mounted camera, as well as a freely-positionable additional camera for mounted implements. The camera images are shown on a monitor in the interior. The driver has the area directly around the vehicle in view and, when changing implements, also has a perfect view of the front attachment plate.

Panoramic cab.

The front-end dimensions and the position of the driver are especially important when working with front-mounted implements. The Unimog's dimensions are well below the legal standard limit of 3.5 m, even with implements attached.

Excellent driving performance.

Its balanced axle load ratio is particularly helpful to Unimog drivers when driving around corners on slippery road surfaces.

Enhanced occupant safety.

The reinforcements to the cab underbody and the new tubular frame make the Unimog cab compliant with the ECE-R29/3 standard for cab stability. 

For greater safety on construction sites.

Sadly, collisions are no unusual occurrence, particularly on construction sites, and they sometimes have serious consequences. Careless drivers overlook bottlenecks or blockages and collide with safety vehicles. The Dutch company Verdegro has developed a new impact cushioning system.

Hydropneumatic suspension.

The hydropneumatic suspension is a suspension system that works in conjunction with hydraulic components. In this process, gas is compressed or decompressed by an oil volume change, resulting in a springing effect. By using hydraulic cylinders, spring mechanisms, hydraulic valves, sensors and a control unit, the vehicle suspension fulfils many functions. The suspension system uses the displacement sensors to hold the frame level of the vehicle in the same position. Available for the U 400 and U 500 series.

It's active and passive suspension combined!

The hydropneumatic suspension also works as passive suspension when the engine and suspension system are switched off. However, when the engine is running and the suspension is activated, the frame level of the vehicle is also automatically held in a stable position by using displacement sensors and taught-in centre position.

The Unimog's hydropneumatic suspension can be used in four functions. Adjustment is carried out using a button in the cab.

  • Springs (AUTOMATIC)
  • Lifting (LIFT)
  • Lowering (LOWER)
  • Set axle to fixed position (LOCK)

Advantages:

  • Optimum vehicle stability even with tall bodies
  • Fixed frame height irrespective of load condition and load distribution
  • Optimum driving comfort and lateral guidance when driving around corners and on uneven surfaces
  • Manual axle adjustment for frame adjustment in relation to bodies and attachments as well as coupling and uncoupling aid for rear attachments
  • Automatic load compensation in the case of loads on just one side, for example when carrying boom mowers
  • Fixed rear axle for setting the frame height (suspension via tyre pressure)

Ergonomics.

Climb aboard, make yourself at home, and away you go! We listened to the comments and suggestions of countless users in order to develop a cab with a user-friendly and ergonomic interior.

This includes a comfortable seating position, intuitive implement operation with the multifunction joystick and a fast overview of all the vehicle displays in the instrument cluster. These improvements have contributed in no small way to greater safety and ease of operation, guaranteeing that in the Unimog, work and comfort go hand in hand.

  • Low vibration workplace
  • Comfortable seating position
  • Multifunction joystick
  • Instrument cluster
  • Comfortable steering
  • Hydropneumatic axle suspension

Offering the best working conditions: the operating concept.

People who don't just drive from A to B but who need their vehicle for tough day-to-day work have different requirements when it comes to operation and comfort. The comfortable cab and a cockpit that has been adapted to perfectly meet users' needs together create the best possible working conditions. This leaves you free to focus all your energy on carrying out all your tasks... and to be comfortable while doing so too! All controls are located within easy reach: just one way that the Unimog makes your life easier.

Tidy interior.

Along with the low vibration cab, the optional air-sprung and low vibration help reduce fatigue. Anyone spending longer periods of time in the cab will appreciate the efficient air-conditioning and heating system, which guarantees a comfortable temperature on the inside, whatever the weather on the outside. What's more, in winter, the heated seating can be switched on. And so that work can begin at any time, there's a programmable auxiliary heating system. Heated windows and mirrors ensure give you a clear view right from the word go.

And there are loads more practical touches just waiting to be discovered – like extra storage compartments and a DAB radio with Bluetooth® hands-free system.

Centre console.

In the centre console, the removable multifunction joystick can be used to control the working functions and working speed. It's also used to operate the synchronised Electronic Quick Reverse (EQR) reversing group.

Instrument cluster.

The instrument cluster's large and bright screen displays all important information like oil level, air pressure and hydraulic system settings.

Steering-column lever.

Driving functions like the gear-change, engine brake (on the right) and the EasyDrive hydrostatic drive system (on the left) are integrated into the steering column controls.

Multifunction steering wheel.

The multifunction steering wheel fits snugly into your hand and allows for easy access to the instrument cluster and hands-free system displays.

Steering column.

The standard height and  tilt-adjustable steering column creates the best seating position  for the driver.

Comfort steering.

Electromotive power steering reduces the force needed for steering,  increasing driving comfort and ergonomics. The system works on a speed-dependent basis and is adapted to the respective driving situation. For example, the comfort steering creates a variable steering feel adapted to the driving situation, even with heavy front-mounted implements and bulky tyres.

Vario-Pilot® transferable steering system.

To provide the best simultaneous view of the road  and working area, the Unimog has the option of being equipped with the practical  VarioPilot® transferable steering system. This allows the driver to change seating position   to the other side of the vehicle, depending on the type of work that is being carried out.

In combination with the optional glass mowing door, users have a perfect view of the implements when mowing or maintaining roadside verges.

Right-hand/left-hand variable steering:

  • Changing of the steering wheel position including instrument panel and pedals in under 30 s
  • The best seating position for any job
  • Assists with one-person operation and improves efficiency, especially for operations like mowing and sweeping

Product benefits

Drive systems.

The Unimog features many innovative transport solutions to increase efficiency.

Leading technologies make a major contribution to sustainability, environmental friendliness, and CO2 and fuel reduction. But what is all this technology based on? A drivetrain with the latest common-rail diesel engines, a powerful transmission and robust axles, enabling high payload values across all models.

Transmissions.

  • Transfer case with permanent all-wheel drive
  • EPS gearshift with 8 forwards and 6 reverse gears
  • Expandable by 6 or 16 gears with crawler, working and off-road gear groups
  • Reversible gearshift for fast direction changes
  • Comfortable operation
  • Long service life
  • EasyDrive combines hydrostatic and mechanical traction drive
  • Practical AutomaticShift takes the strain off the user with automated clutch and gear changes

Engine.

  • State-of-the-art, high-torque 4- and 6-cylinder engines from 140 to 260 kW (190 to 354 hp)
  • Up to 1,380 Newton metres of torque
  • Compliance with the Euro VI emissions standard
  • Large displacement, high torque, smooth running, low fuel consumption

Axles and wheels.

  • Strong axles for high load values
  • Pneumatic disc brakes
  • Aluminium rims for increased payload
  • TireControl plus tyre pressure control system with practical pre-setting

High efficiency.

In the Unimog, the fully synchronised electro-pneumatic gear shift system with its eight forwards and six reverse gears provides the tractive force. Can be expanded by 6 or 16 gears. It is characterised by its particularly smooth driving style, a long service life and great efficiency. And the synchronised Electronic Quick Reverse feature makes it easier to change direction quickly, like when clearing or manoeuvring. There is the option of a forwards-reverse switch, which is integrated into the multifunction joystick.

Fast and easy cleaning of the cooling system.

The cooling system and component arrangement ensure the cooling of all units, even when ambient temperatures are high, driving speeds low and jobs exceedingly dirt-intensive. Cleaning of the radiator is also very easy: simply open the grille and blow the filter clean with the compressed air pistol. The radiator can also be cleaned automatically – with the optional reversing fan (reversing the airflow) which features multi-timer interval control.

Easy-Drive – the innovative traction drive system.

Perfectly tailored to the occasion: the synergetic traction drive.

The EasyDrive synergetic traction drive combines the advantages of a fuel-saving manual transmission with an infinitely variable hydrostatic traction drive. When put to work, its benefits are plain to see: working speed can be set steplessly and independently of engine speed, and can be maintained at that level with the cruise control function. And if you need to move between work locations, you can easily switch between infinitely variable and mechanical transmission modes while the vehicle is in motion. This system makes work easier for the user, increasing productivity.

Easy-Drive control is simple:

  • With accelerator pedal and brake
  • Using the working cruise control
  • With the left-hand drop arm
  • With the multifunction joystick

Technologically innovative.

And it's all down to the traction drive: this is tailored precisely to the job at hand, making it possible to use the continuously variable speed settings in a much wider speed range from 0 to 50 km/h, in so doing making EasyDrive extremely efficient and a doddle to operate. The optimised high pressure regulation achieves much higher traction, considerably improving the Unimog implement carrier's performance. EasyDrive allows the driver to change between mechanical and hydrostatic drive while the vehicle is in motion, helping you to work efficiently with optimised speed and economical driving.

Automated shifting with AutomaticShift.

Two drive programmes help reduce the driver's workload: in automatic mode "A", the drive program handles gear changes and clutch operation completely by itself, regardless of load, accelerator position, engine operation, climbs/inclines or engine brake. However, if it becomes necessary for the driver to manually change gear using the multifunction lever, this is also possible.

And the "M" drive programme (manual) offers complete control. Here, gear selection is also made using the multifunction lever. The driver chooses the gear, while clutch operation occurs automatically.

AutomaticShift (EAS) with dual-pedal operation (accelerator/brake) is available for the U 435 and U 535 models. The optimised gearshift tuning makes gear changes noticeably quicker and clutch wear and tear significantly reduced. This makes life easier for you, the driver, especially for gearshift-intensive vehicle tasks – so you can concentrate better on the surrounding traffic and on the task at hand.

Effortless changing between working and driving modes.

The drive-work mode is a huge help in everyday operations: when mowing, for example, if a section has been completed, the manual transmission can be actuated easily and speedily.

This is how it's done: when the maximum speed of 50 km/h is reached for the hydrostatic drive, the switch to manual transmission is made either by actuating the clutch, or there's the option for this to take place automatically.

And so, merging into lanes of moving traffic is made faster and safer. And with EasyDrive, the decision as to which drive mode is best is taken without the need to brake.

Further advantages:

  • Gears can be changed while driving
  • Rapid change between manual transmission and hydrostatic traction drive
  • Simple operation and activation
  • Work mode for working with constant engine speed
  • Drive mode for continuous speed change between 0 and 50 km/h
  • Selection between operations-orientated driving conditions "efficient", "comfortable" and "powerful"

The fully proportional working hydraulics.

With the working hydraulics, implements can be accurately controlled with minimum effort.

Two positioning movements can be done at the same time – simply by using the multifunction joystick. Further functions can be set using the steering wheel buttons. Larger trailer tipping cylinders can also be filled with up to 30 litres of hydraulic oil. Circuit I controls up to eight implement adjustments with a system pressure of 210 bar (32 l/min) over four dual-operation valves. Alternatively, it can drive hydraulic motors at the lower output range.

Four-cell working hydraulics.

The implement carrier's four-cell working hydraulics consist of two circuits. When combined, circuits I and II (32 plus 55 l/min) can now mobilise 35 kW at up to 240 bar.

Another highlight is the load-sensing hydraulics system. With a hydraulic oil flow rate of up to 110 l/min and 240 bar pressure, it constantly adapts to the pump pressure and the volume flow to suit requirements, making it both particularly efficient and at the same time very economical.

Hydraulic connections for up to four circuits are safely installed at the front and rear of the vehicle.

The Vario-Power® power hydraulics.

Two circuits, each with 125 l hydraulic oil through-flow per minute and 280 bar pressure: with its power hydraulics, the Unimog is ready to face anything. Whether several different tasks have to be carried out simultaneously or a single job requires significant output, the VarioPower® power hydraulics make more possible. The two open circuits III and IV have the same high through-flow of 125 l, system pressure of 280 bar and a maximum output of 58 kW.

The power hydraulics can therefore take the place of plug-in pumps on the PTO shaft or body diesel engines. VarioPower® controls are simple to operate using the steering wheel buttons on the multifunction steering wheel. The settings are shown in the instrument cluster. The power hydraulics are installed on the platform sub-frame and can also be removed if necessary – for example to increase the payload for winter services.

Mechanical implement drive: proven top power.

Full steam ahead: The mechanical implement drives deliver just the right output for a wide range of tasks. 

The Unimog comes with lots of optional extras. Take the front PTO shaft with a continuous output of 160 kW, for example. On-board engine and transmission power take-off are also available as an option. The mechanical drive systems are a must for jobs requiring a high output.
 

Powerful front PTO with up to 160 kW.

Front-attached implements requiring significant power are run directly off the PTO, which takes its power from the drivetrain of the engine. It is oil-cooled as a standard feature and, with a 1¾-inch splined shaft, it allows for a high torque transfer while also ensuring a very high degree of efficiency – especially in continuous operation. With the engine speed indicator in the instrument cluster and a setting between 420 and 1,000 rpm, the PTO can be used to drive implements at 540 rpm or 1,000 rpm standard engine speed.

PTOs from engine and transmission:

The engine-run PTO of the Unimog implement carrier drives the power hydraulics, but it can also be used to run powerful implements in combination with a hydrostatic drive. The transmission-run PTO with its standardised flange on the manual gearbox also allows commercially available hydraulic pumps to operate cranes and elevating work platforms. Output speed and rotational direction are identical to engine speed and rotational direction.

Electrical interfaces: Plug in and get to work.

Four standard interfaces in the cab and on the outside enable the operation of electrical consumers or implements without the need for any cabling work.

The on-board electrical system is fed by a 24-volt/150 amp generator. The parameterisable on-board electronics make it easier to control settings like the engine speed limiter to protect mechanically-driven implements, the starter interlock for extended support or the speed limiter.

Universal electrical interface to EN16330.

  • Available ex factory
  • No additional retrofit work by body manufacturers (for mowers, gritters or sweepers) necessary
  • Prepared wiring harness bushings prevent sealing problems on cab
  • All electrical line pre-installations are fed via the cab pivot point. And so, the cab can be tilted without any problems.
  • Plug & Work: Reduced equipment times when changing seasonal attached/mounted implements
  • Standardised interface to EN 16330

Forestry.

For foresters, there's always work to do. And the Unimog implement carrier helps them get the job done.

The Unimog implement carrier is particularly  agile off-road and also has excellent properties for on-road driving. It can take on a huge variety of tasks , from maintenance of forest paths in spring to tree maintenance in summer and wood shredding in the autumn.

  • Compact external dimensions
  • High axle loads
  • VarioPilot®

Energy.

As a highly mobile vehicle built for high voltage, the Unimog is not afraid of anything.

Whether for tapping into new energy sources, in open-pit mining or for the maintenance, monitoring and repair of extensive supply networks, with its unique vehicle concept, drivers can rev up the Unimog to the max, even when fully loaded.Al

Applications

Construction.

Whether as a work vehicle or as a tractor, the Unimog always does the best possible job on construction sites both in and out of town.

Whether the task at hand be road construction, canal and waterway construction, drilling, inner-city operations or specialised tasks, with its high traction, the Unimog can get to places where there is no road (yet!). Despite its compact size, it offers very long ranges in crane use – stable, powerful and precise.

Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority in Schweinfurt has been very impressed with the Unimog's genuine parts.

As Norbert Eusemann chats with us about his Unimog, his excitement is contagious. The U 400 is the fourth model that the 57 year-old has been driving since he started working at the Volkach site of Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority (WSA) in 1981. His passion for the Unimog was ignited when he was just eight years old and later, his passion became his profession. He is also very impressed with the service it provides. He says: "Mercedes-Benz Service has definitely earned its star."

Services

Flexibility that gives plenty of elbow room.

It pays to use Mercedes-Benz Bank's financial services!

Our customised financial services make your accounting more flexible. Jointly with the Mercedes-Benz Bank and our Unimog partners, we can provide customised service offers including leasing, financing, guarantee extensions, mobility concepts and rental vehicles. Get in touch with your authorised Unimog workshop for more information.

Financing.

Flexible offers to widen your financial scope. These take the form of seasonal payment financing, which means that you pay more in busy months and less in quiet months, final payment financing, which means you make a higher final payment so that the monthly rates are lower, or Plus3 financing, to name just a few. At the end of the contractual period, you can then decide whether to sell your Unimog and make the final payment or whether to return the vehicle to your dealer at the price guaranteed in your contract. You can also keep your Unimog when you make the final payment. Make the most of follow-up financing and make the final payment in convenient monthly instalments. But even if you opt for standard financing, you're guaranteed to get attractive and flexible terms. When you have decided which new vehicle you would like, speak to your sales representative to settle the terms for its financing.

Leasing.

With a leasing contract from the Mercedes-Benz Bank, instead of paying the entire purchase price, you can instead pay for just use of the vehicle. You then agree with your Mercedes-Benz partner on the best period of time for you to make convenient monthly payments. Be kind to your budget and make the most of easy-to-calculate and transparent costs.

Municipal leasing.

With our local authority leasing, we can offer the perfect solution for any public service budget. You can regularly switch to new vehicles, giving you both a modern and cost-effective fleet at the same time. Whether it be for rescue services, firefighters or road maintenance, with local authority leasing, you're making the right decision.

Service Leasing.

One contract, many advantages. With this attractive package, you can manage the main aspects of your fleet costs: acquisition and service, giving you the best possible planning security.

Our quality promise.

Built in Wörth, at the largest truck assembly plant in the world,
the Unimog meets the commercial vehicle branch's high quality standards.

Brand promise

Working for you.

As a global leader of medium-heavy and heavy trucks, Mercedes-Benz sets itself ambitious targets: we set the standard for quality and reliability. And our over 11,000-strong workforce at our modern and environmentally-friendly Wörth plant more than meet these expectations. Since 1963, over three million commercial vehicles have been manufactured here. Alongside the A-series (Actros, Arocs, Antos and Atego), all the Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks are designed and manufactured at the plant, using a good number of identical components. The fleet includes the Unimog implement carrier, the outstandingly agile off-road Unimog, the Econic and the Zetros. All models in the series are subject to the same stringent testing and trial cycles as vehicles from the large-scale production series. The Wörth plant's motto expresses our passion for commercial vehicles best: "Our mission is to get a little better each day so we can fulfil our brand pledge: trucks you can trust."

Cooperation with body manufacturers.

Valuable partnerships.

Mercedes-Benz has been working closely with international implement and body manufacturers for decades, combining the experience and expertise of specialists with the in-depth knowledge of competent Unimog partners. The most stringent requirements for the best system solutions.

Close exchange.

We work in particularly close collaboration with our certified Unimog body manufacturers. As well as new attachment and body solutions, our main focus is on the fundamental characteristics of the vehicle, like safety. Because the best result is achieved when everyone works hand in hand.

Custom Tailored Trucks.

Individualisation in manufacturer quality.

The applications possible with the Unimog implement carrier may be so specific that it might not be possible to meet series production requirements. The Mercedes-Benz plant in Molsheim is prepared for these special requests. This is where we carry out individualised production using the manufacturer's full expertise... with the manufacturer’s warranty and worldwide available service from Daimler Truck, of course!
