Thurgau's cantonal civil engineering agency uses the Unimog U 423 to keep its roads in check.
Mowing, ploughing, spreading: tasks as if made for a Unimog. No wonder then, that Thurgau's cantonal civil engineering agency puts its trust in an all-wheel drive Unimog U 423 – for all of its tasks, in all seasons.
The Swiss-based company based in Schlieren has around 130 employees which maintain, plan, build and run the 800 km of regional road network, and thus all make a contribution towards road safety in the region. Major assistance towards this aim comes from their new all-rounder from Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks, as Daniel Goldinger, Head of the Vehicles and Machinery Department, explains.
Mercedes-Benz plays an important role in our everyday work because without a first-class fleet, we wouldn't be able to meet the high demands placed upon us.

Modern, efficient and safe – typically Unimog.
But the Unimog U 423 isn't the first operational vehicle with a three-pointed star which the cantonal civil engineering agency puts its faith in, but it is the first Unimog in the fleet. Daniel Goldinger firmly believes that the new Unimog is a valuable aid for their team – thanks to an operating concept familiar from other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, drivers quickly become acquainted with the vehicle. With the latest technology on-board, the Unimog allows tasks to be completed with great efficiency. And as it's a genuine all-rounder, its scope of possible applications is phenomenally broad.
A highlight in all four seasons: the Unimog U 423.
Whether in spring, summer, autumn or winter, the Unimog tackles every challenge which comes its way, any time and to the user's utmost satisfaction. Mowing along the region's roads, ploughing snow or spreading salt are just some of the tasks in which it is already versed. "VarioPilot® gives you the option of moving the steering wheel to the right-hand side ready for mowing operations. This simplifies the driver's workload enormously. And with a salt spreader mounted directly onto the ball points of the Unimog, we have the maximum payload available to us, meaning we can carry plenty of salt during the winter months," as Daniel Goldinger excitedly explains.
