Pictures: Mercedes-Benz Unimog at Agritechnica 2019
Mercedes-Benz is exhibiting two Unimog vehicles at the event, the heavy U 530 (16.5 t permissible gross vehicle weight) and a lightweight U 218 (10 t permissible gross vehicle weight), both agricultural versions. The U 530 with tractor registration on display is registered as such across Europe, thanks to a safety cab with roll bar. While registration as an agricultural tractor/agricultural implement carrier has been possible in Germany for quite some time, thanks to the addition of the safety cab the Unimog can now be registered as such across the entire European Union. The “U 530 tractor” on display (the 30 stands for around 300 hp) boasts a top-of-the-range engine, namely a six-cylinder diesel engine with 7.7 litres of displacement and 220 kW (299 hp), meeting the strictest Euro VI-D standard.
