Unimog in fire service deployment.

Up for any challenge, tough off-road.

In recent years we have witnessed devastating forest fires like those in Southern Europe, record floods along the Danube and Elbe in Central Europe, violent hurricanes and autumnal storms throughout Europe, and disasters such as hailstorms and earthquakes. Proof, if you needed it, that the number of natural disasters is on the increase all around the world – and with them the need for major and special operations of fire services and disaster control organisations. All of this means that the key tasks of rescue, fire-fighting, recovery and protection are proving ever more challenging for emergency teams – and for the emergency vehicles they use. Which is why vehicles which are robust, reliable and above all capable of working off-road, like the Unimog, are an absolute necessity in our times.

One vehicle, two series.

Unimog is not just universal by name. The all-rounder from Mercedes-Benz is available as an implement carrier and extreme off-road vehicle. Model ranges fully exploit their advantages in fire service deployment.

Extreme off-road mobility

The Unimog U 4023/U 5023 is the vehicle of choice for all applications requiring utmost off-road mobility. The Unimog off-roader has proved itself when working in rough terrain under extremely difficult conditions all over the world.

The Unimog offers a wide range of solutions
for special emergency assistance applications.


Water tender vehicle.

Unimog alleviates critical situations on almost any terrain.

The Unimog is extremely popular with professional and voluntary fire services as a water tender vehicle and fire-fighting crew vehicle. Whether in urban areas, narrow old town streets, or out in the countryside and forested areas, the special truck combines off-road capability with special body compatibility and thus helps to bring important equipment to remote locations.

The extreme off-road Unimog for fire fighting.

Rescue services around the globe put their trust in the Unimog.

Hubert Clavé, fire service lieutenant, Landes, France, explains: "We have been impressed by the Unimog's excellent ground clearance due to its drop centre axles, and by the vehicles' long service life and rugged design." Few know better than Clavé, as Landes is regularly hit by forest fires. These account for up to 500 call-outs for the fire service every year.

"The extreme off-road Unimog is the best vehicle for fighting forest fires, as it can reach places that are almost entirely inaccessible to other wheeled vehicles."

    The Unimog’s panoramic cab ensures optimum visibility on and off the road. In addition, a camera monitoring system is available for the implement carrier, which has up to three optional cameras and a freely positionable body/device camera.

    Enhanced occupant safety.

    The reinforcements to the cab underbody and the new tubular frame make the Unimog cab compliant with the ECE-R29/3 standard for cab stability. 

    All-wheel steering.

    The optional all-wheel steering available for the U 423 - U 535 models increases the manoeuvrability typical of the Unimog: it reduces the turning circle by around 20%, keeping the vehicle easy to manoeuvre in virtually every situation and almost completely eliminating the need for backing up around tight bends.

    Unparalleled operational experience.

    Continuing the tradition of getting help to wherever it's needed: the Mercedes-Benz Unimog owes its decades of success largely to its legendary chassis design. Since the 1950s, the Unimog concept has been synonymous with the finest engineering skills, delivering maximum robustness and traction in off-road conditions. Already in use as a fire service vehicle in the 50s: the Unimog U 25.

    Equipment/tool vehicle

    Unimog offers technical assistance wherever it is needed.

    Rescue and recovery are among the Unimog's key assignments. Whether with the fire service, technical relief agencies or other organisations – the two series are pre-equipped as basic vehicles for a wide range of applications. And with a driving speed of up to 89 km/h on paved roads, they get to where they are needed quickly. If more manpower is needed, the extreme off-road Unimog with optional crew cab can bring the entire team along.

    As quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Unimogs are used to prevent and tackle the effects of flooding and extreme weather; they are deployed as fast-moving tractor units and utility vehicles for tasks including materials transport.

    "The Unimog U 5023 represents a whole new dimension when compared to its predecessor. The increase in load capacity from around two to roughly four tonnes makes us twice as effective in itself, because we can bring double the amount of equipment to the incident in a single trip."

    Joachim Bauer, local representative of the technical relief agency, Laaber, Germany

    There are always people in need of assistance. In order to cope with such unforeseen situations, it is essential that rescue services and disaster responce teams have the right technical support. In chaotic disaster areas, relief organisations with their rescue vehicles are usually in high demand. But most rescue vehicles with chassis for normal roads reach their limits where the Unimog really comes into its own as an ambulance.

    • High tractive force

    The Unimog implement carrier in dual use.

    Ready to help quickly.

    To move the Unimog from the road onto the track, a straight track run of five metres is sufficient – this allows the Unimog to be set on the track almost anywhere. The implement carrier also scores highly thanks to its short changeover time – it only takes three minutes to switch from road mode to rail mode.

    Unique dual operation.

    The new Unimog for lightning-fast service and rescue operations in Magdeburg. “We ordered the Unimog because we needed a vehicle that could get to the site extremely quickly in critical situations – such as a tram accident – and then get on the track in just a few minutes,” explains the project manager, describing the requirements.

    Extreme off-road capability.

    The extreme off-road Unimog is a true off-road professional. It owes its high ground clearance to drop centre axles that allow obstacles to be overcome with ease. The hub reduction gear is protected against dust and dirt. The Unimog’s extreme torsional capability is based on its torsional frame: All wheels are in constant contact with the ground. The chassis enables a large axle articulation of max. 30° through the use of torque tube technology and coil springs, as well as a minimum stress load on the body due to double three-point mounting. The cab and body can be twisted by up to 12° relative to each other. Uncompromising all-wheel drive, differential locks and constant maximum traction also ensure extreme off-road capability.

    Single tyres.

    The principle: The rear wheels follow in the tracks made by the front wheels. This improves traction and spares the terrain.

    Optimum traction.

    Thanks to TireControl plus, the Unimog always has the right tyre pressure on the road. By changing the driving mode, the correct setting is implemented automatically at the push of a button – even while driving.

    Tire Control plus.

    The switching logic allows the user to choose between the pre-set "Road", "Sand" and "Rough" modes. This means the correct mode for the current road surface can be set intuitively, making operator error virtually impossible. TireControl  also brings benefits for nature: driving off-road with lowered tyre pressure improves traction while reducing the impact on the surface.

    [Translate to en:]

    Capable of fording to a depth of 1.2 m.

    The drive system of the extreme off-road Unimog is designed to enable the vehicle to ford to depths of up to 0.8 m or, on request, 1.2 m. In addition, the Unimog is also equipped with waterproof main headlights, central high ventilation system and a double seal on the wheel hub. The catalytic converter and upright exhaust ultimately make the vehicle fully suitable for fording.


    The typical Unimog gearbox takes pressure off the driver and contributes to safety and comfort with practical details like Electronic Quick Reverse, off-road gear reduction and the EAS electronic automated gearshift system.

    Use of implements.

    An advantage when used with front-mounted implements is the front mounting plate for attachment of a snowplough, earth pusher or front-mounted sweeper for use in disaster operations. In addition, the Unimog scores highly ex works with hydraulics for cable winch operation (60 l/min). The cable winch holder for a self-recovery winch is integrated into the front attachment. A gearbox PTO is specially available for operation of a fire extinguisher pump.


    With a single cab for work crews (1 + 2), the Unimog has two fullyfledged individual seats and a centre seat. Alternatively, the crew cab can provide space for up to 7 people (1 + 6) ex works, a high cab roof for more headroom and four wide-opening doors as well as generous storage space under the fold-down rear seat bench. A roof hatch and a folding seat are optionally available for use during extinguishing operations.

    Heat protection.

    The fireproof steel cab with ECE-R29 certification protects emergency crews. In addition, a heat protection package is also available ex works. This includes a special covering for all important cables, in order to protect them from extreme heat or other damage. In addition, all of the Unimog's major assemblies and technical components are mechanically protected.

    part of a legend!

    We care about customer satisfaction. The Unimog is not just any old vehicle, it's an indestructible power pack, a versatile endurance runner and an adventurous all-rounder. In order to keep it at its best for many years to come, all professional Unimog users are provided with the very best support right from the start.

    The Unimog is an automotive legend, in which every individual part has a role to play. Every service is decisive in  how the story continues. That’s why every Mercedes-Benz Unimog service partner is more than just a workshop – it’s part of a legend. We are all part of this committed community, in which every part down to the smallest screw as well as every service appointment is crucial in making sure that the Unimog is cost effective and ready for action – empowering your Unimog to master everyday life with gusto – day in, day out.

    Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority in Schweinfurt has been very impressed with the Unimog's genuine parts.

    As Norbert Eusemann chats with us about his Unimog, his excitement is contagious. The U 400 is the fourth model that the 57 year-old has been driving since he started working at the Volkach site of Schweinfurt's Waterways and Shipping Authority (WSA) in 1981. His passion for the Unimog was ignited when he was just eight years old and later, his passion became his profession. He is also very impressed with the service it provides. He says: "Mercedes-Benz Service has definitely earned its star."
