Collection 3: Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 500 with winter-service equipment.

Since 1951, Mercedes-Benz has been building the Unimog – a vehicle of many, many talents which has proven itself in agriculture and as a municipal vehicle. Typical of the Unimog are the portal axles, the snub-nosed cab, the single tires and the all-wheel drive. With a snowplow, the U 500 shown here, a member of the Unimog generation launched in March 2000, can clear 1,600 tons of snow per hour.
