The compact Unimog U 218 is extremely manoeuvrable and suitable for off-road use.
Narrow alleys, dense forest paths, little time: when every second counts, firefighting vehicles have to meet the highest standards. The Unimog U 218 is the ideal partner for fire brigades where manoeuvrability, off-road capabilities and equipment expertise are required. Together with the Italian body manufacturer BAI, Unimog general distributor Henne Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH and Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks are now in a position to present an extremely manoeuvrable equipment variant of the Unimog.
A small high-tech wonder.
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 218 is the smallest implement carrier in its class. Thanks to its compact dimensions and short wheelbase it delivers absolute flexibility. Nevertheless, the Special Truck scores points with its powerful engine which enables the emergency services to carve their path even through rough terrain. Portal axles and permanent all-wheel drive also make it the first choice for operations off the beaten track, such as for fighting forest and vegetation fires.
