The versatility and performance of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog tool carrier road-rail vehicle system
The versatility of Unimog road-rail vehicles is based on their efficient and economical operation on road and rail.
Whether on or off-road, the wide range of tools and auxiliary equipment enables the Unimog to carry out a large number of varied and necessary maintenance tasks. Unimog is renowned throughout the world for its high efficiency, quality and exceptional durability.
The Unimog equipped with railway wheels makes it a valuable road-rail utility.
With its special accessories, the Unimog can carry out shunting, track laying, service, repair and maintenance work, as well as emergency snow removal and rescue work.
The Unimog road-rail vehicle arrives at the workplace by the shortest and fastest route, making it a perfect all-round vehicle, meeting and often exceeding the requirements of customers and railway authorities.
Getting on the rails is quick and easy. Unimog's road-rail vehicles only need a 5-metre section of level track for this.
