    Oh man, that's right down the street too. No suburb of Chicago has ever had a need for something like that, but I'd request one if I was working there...

    I'd say get it if you'll use it and have the money.

    Those mogs are awesome, I'd like one but don't have the $$$ or need.

    That can't be the reason because the military has lots of them. And I do mean alot.

    You're right, parts are easily obtained because there are so many of them, they are the standard military and civilian utility vehicle all through out Europe and have been for some time now.

    Parts are still available from a number of dealers in the US. The US Army is still running the SEE tractor, a 406 Unimog with front end loader, backhoe and a bunch of hydraulic tools. They will be fased out in the next few years and replaced by a JCB (fastrack?)
