Went to school with a guy that had a Unimog, awesome machine for sure!

After WW2 Land Rover had front and rear PTOs for operating farm implements.

Would love to have one of these, likely more useful and cost-effective than many agricultural tractors these days.

As per the caption... "This earthmover Unimog is one of those vehicles that I have absolutely no conceivable use for, but find myself wanting all the same..." :D

I could find a use for it Doc! :lol:
If I remember correctly, the guy I knew with one said at best 8mpg- I wouldn't want to put fuel in one now-a-days :shock:

Saw several Unimogs when hunting in Namibia back in 2007. Awesome machines!

The backhoe on the one up the street is folded up on the back of the truck piggy back and completely out of the way. In the text it says the front bucket and backhoe are removable. I stopped at the Farm the other day and walked around it. Knocked on the Door at the House and no one was Home. Anything I have ever seen with wheels around here is like a tinker toy in comparison. The only thing close is a log skidder with chains. :D .
