    As always, some great vehicles here, but have to stick with a fellow club member! Besides that, I have seen his jeep in person, and it is indeed beautiful.

    This is our multitalent UNIMOG 406.145 born 1975 as an aircraft tug but good for much more.
    Pulling, pushing, road use or offroad use.

    This Mercedes is powered by a straight 6Cyl. Diesel engine OM352. The gear box has 6 fore and 2 rear with torque converter for
    smooth / jerkfree towing.
    You have 2 wheel or 4 wheel or 4 wheel fullylocked drive.
    You can use a front PTO for addition equipment like the brush.

    You also have two hydraulic circuits to move for ex. the plow up/down and left/right.
