    Thats been on ebay for a while.Unimogs are one of the tuffest trucks around the new ones go for about $120,000.They have front and rear ptos so they can run tractor attachments.Thats why theres so many gears.The lowest gear runs about 30 feet per hour!

    Ah, the unimog, so ugly it's pretty.

    The 24 geared ones are designed for agricultural use in fields.

    I would just use it for wheeling if i had one of those Uni-mog's.
    It is in good shape though.

    A Friend of mine plowed with a late 70s MB Uni. He was responsible for keeping 4.5 miles of road open in a NH State Park for a program that used the park all year. It was a blast to drive and plow with. The only problem he had was the 9' plow hanging off the front just about lifts the rear wheels off the ground. His solution was to put a 2000 lb granite block on the bed witch by the way dump in 3 directions. For additional weight he had a 7'5" snow blower on the back. The blower was nice for after the storm, moving banks back as needed. All and all the machine was to lite for this application, the truck would 4 wheel slide to the side when the blade would load up. A 3/4 ton P/U would have been fine, except for the blower on the back ...it was real nice for moving banks.
