Crane Mog Braves the Wintry Weather and Comes out
This U1450 Unimog with HIAB 090 crane recently left us to start a new life as a site vehicle at a materials and equipment testing base in the north of England. This unique facility carries out research and technical service work for the oil, gas and energy industries, construction industries and government agencies.
Whilst it was here we fitted a pair of our heavy duty rear springs to support the crane and gave the mog a full service. We fabricated special dropsides to fit with existing body and fitted 3 rear cameras and front worklights. As this was a first time Unimog purchase for this company our mobile mechanic Michael conducted some training in safe operation on their premises. They also bought a one year service parts package which is a good way of saving time later. The mog is fitted with a full set of HD waterproof seat covers, a hydraulic pick-up hitch and a 3.05 metre snowplough with heavy duty squeegee and premium pneumatic instead of standard castors.
As can be seen in the photo on the right the mog came into its own straight away and they are so impressed with its performance that they're already looking for a second one to add to their site vehicles.
