Power for every task


The Unimog U 4000/U 5000 has an auxiliary drive for running hydraulic pumps for cranes or excavators. It also has a fast auxiliary drive for connecting to fire-extinguishing pumps or similar power units. 

The PTOs (power take-offs) are operated via a pull switch in the center console, while the hydraulic or fire-extinguishing pumps are controlled via a special CANbus-linked module with programmable parameters.

Hydraulic System: Simple to connect, easy to operate.

The Unimog’s powerful hydraulic system, with a working pressure of up to 240 bar, can run an oil engine or an external control panel, making it suitable both for permanent consumers and for operating implements via valves.

Standard plug connectors make for easy, fast, and error-free fitting.

Two hydraulic connections each at front and rear (pressure and return line) are available to operate winches, cranes, etc.

Off-road: Single tires.

For anywhere and everywhere.

Unlike conventional four-wheel-drive trucks with twin tires fitted on the rear axle, the Unimog has four single tires. The rear wheels always run in the compressed tracks created by the front wheels, which offers higher traction and lower rolling resistance. With a wide range of tire sizes and types available, the Unimog can be equipped with exactly the right tires for the respective terrain.

Advantages at a glance:

  • A large selection of tires is available: from MPT low-pressure tires to special sand and high-traction models.

  • Chains can also be used for snow or difficult terrain, depending on the chosen tire size.

A central tire inflation system (Tirecontrol) always ensures the right tire pressure.

A further plus when driving over challenging or soft terrain: Tire control, the optional system for quickly and flexibly adjusting tire pressure to suit changing surface conditions while on the move.

At the touch of a button, the driver seated in the cab can decrease the air pressure to increase the tire contact area, preventing the Unimog from sinking into soft ground and also increasing traction.

Advantages at a glance:

  • High traction, good self-cleaning properties, and reduced tracks on the ground

  • Flexible tire pressure adjustment while driving, to suit the respective terrain

  • Longer tire life because optimum tire pressure is maintained

  • Less soil compaction and less damage to the environment thanks to greater tire contact area
