    That thing is sweet. Put a pusher box on it and it's good to go.

    Man, I'm half tempted to bid on the sucker but I'm not sure if it would work as well as you would think especially being a manual.

    Using the clutch constantly would kill you after a while. That and I can't tell if there is a float function on it, and if not could you modify the valve to be able to.

    That and my wife would probably kill me buying something like that.:realmad:

    I have heard that if you get a complete one, there are all kinds of tools and such in the tool boxes, hydraulic chainsaw, jacks,all kinds of goofy stuff that is powered off the unimog.

    I was thinking the same thing, but I do have a place for it. I was looking at the the code for the listing and it stated that it was fixable with parts of value.

    Makes me wonder if it's road worthy or not. There is two listed, one has an oil pan underneath it, and the other has chalks on the tires like the P-brake doesn't work or there is no driveline.

    Even so it would be a great winter rig. Even if you took the High Hoe off, sold that, and stuck a V-box salt spreader on it. Or even a Dump Box.

    I hope to own a Unimog someday before I die. Never seen one with a loader before though. I would think a pusher on the loader would be great to be able to stack high. I'm guessing they may be difficult to tag for highway use. I'm wondering if the gov ever used them on public roads? Wonder if they come with a regular title or not. My wife would kill me if I brought something like that home. Time to get a storage lot :)

    What would make it cooler was if it was self loading like a garbage truck. A self contained snow relocation truck. Think of the money you could make with that. Parts are expensive though and not super easy to get. I'll get a new one shipped over when I win MM or PB.

    They are cult vehicles like FJ40's and Scouts, unless they are total rats they will do between 8 and 14 grand. There are plenty of guys that do nothing but search for those, you can find gas 404's for under 5 grand, but you better know how to work on them.They can climb but have no guts, but very cool.
    When you get into diesel MB/Case Unimogs like those they are usually not too bad, under 15k, but start getting into DoKa's(quad cab diesels) a ratty one is 15k, nice ones 30k to 45k
    The new ones are sick, and about $100,000.

    In Europe a lot of the farmers clean the roads with big 7 and 8000 series John Deere's and have a big auger on the front that blows over the top of them into 30 foot trailers, all self contained, it is a pretty cool evolution, you can find it on Youtube, I have also seen it with a Unimog with a Schmidt auger and another Unimog dump traveling behind it as a snow receptacle.

    Yup, Closing bid was $16,611. They usually list after Govt sale around $22,000. Not a fan of the loader, but a dozer blade works well on them. That 406 will push a 10' plow and out turn a CJ7. (no really)
