Its exceptional off-road capability is made possible through a host of technical features, such as the flexible ladder-type frame, all-wheel drive with differential locks on both axles, and the tyre pressure control system. With this, nothing can stand in the way of your perfect off-road operation. For instance, as an emergency vehicle for disaster relief work, or for maintenance tasks in the power supply industry. It gets through terrain other vehicles can't even reach – the Unimog U 4000/U 5000.Chassis
Diverse attachment and mounting options.
Wherever high demands on workers and technology meet up with extreme terrain, the Mercedes-Benz Unimog comes into its own. And thanks to its great versatility, the every job requirement can be met. For decades, implements and bodies have been designed in close cooperation with leading manufacturers, creating the ideal, customised solution for a wide array of special operations.
The Unimog: a living legend.
Created during the hard times following the end of WW II, the tough Mercedes-Benz Unimog is one of the few truly still-living legends of legendary automobiles still in production. Over decades, the Unimog has proved itself worldwide as a versatile implement carrier and transport vehicle; roughly 380,000 vehicles have been produced to date. What remains unchanged is its basic idea: four wheels, equal in size, outstanding off-road mobility due to its portal axles, four-wheel drive and differential locks at front and back, compact dimensions and – last but not least – its ability to provide power for a great variety of attached and mounted implements. The series production vehicle known as the “Universal-Motor-Gerät (tool)” – abbreviated to Unimog – has been proudly bearing the Mercedes star since 1951.Unimog history video
The future of Unimog: a vision in green.
The spectacular design concept was unveiled during the Unimog’s 60th anniversary celebrations, in June 2011. It combines the past and future of the Unimog in an extremely avant-garde way. The Unimog DNA with its unique concept features is the starting point for imagining this design concept, the Universal-Motor-Gerät (Unimog) of the future. The designers were inspired by an unusual amphibian, the poison dart frog: Just like the Unimog, it is extremely mobile both in water and on land. The striking hue reveals another link between past and future, as green was the colour of the very first Unimog and numerous follow-up generations.
The Unimog’s powerful hydraulic system with a working pressure of up to 240 bar features standard plug connectors for easy, fast and error-free fitting. Two hydraulic connections each at front and rear (pressure and return line) are available to operate winches, cranes etc.
Off-road capabilities: experience the extremes.
Whether you have to tackle hard gravel tracks, hot desert sand, dizzyingly steep downhill stretches or climb gradients of up to 100 % – that’s what the Unimog U 4000/ U 5000 is all about. When the terrain demands it, the Unimog rises to the challenge like no other commercial vehicle.
