The fire and rescue Unimog defied the elements at the first redMOGday held by Unimog general distributor Beutlhauser.
Extreme weather events such as floods and forest fires are becoming more and more common – and prove that every second counts in an emergency. Rescue workers need to reach the site quickly no matter how rough the terrain, so it is essential that their equipment is cutting edge. The fire and rescue Unimog – also known as redMog – is made for missions like these. And it showed its true mettle at the first redMOGday held by Unimog general distributor Beutlhauser on 1 July 2023. A baptism of fire in front of a thrilled crowd.
Just like the fire brigade.
Nothing gets in the way of the Unimog when responding to a fire. It masters steep climbs at high speed, manoeuvres down precipitous slopes, overcomes twists and turns and can be depended on to get to the deployment site. The same applies to flood situations. Visitors to the first redMOGday could experience the reliability of the Unimog at first hand by riding over a specially modelled off-road landscape.
The Banzer Wald mountain inn in the Lichtenfels district of Bavaria offered just the right terrain. “Here we can showcase the capabilities of the Unimog up close”, said Claus Artmayer, Head of Municipal Technology at Beutlhauser. Offroad rides were given in the Unimog U 5023 with crewcab and Unimog U 5023 TLF 3000 from Rosenbauer to demonstrate their toughness. At the wheel: professional drivers from the Unimog Museum in Gaggenau.
