Farming Contractor Keeps This Black Beauty Busy
This smart looking Unimog U1500AG has been known to us through several owners hands and it now spends its days working for a farm and building contractor in and around the fields of Eastern Ireland - isn't it a beauty in shiny silver and black?
I've said this before but as can be seen from the photo on the right it is not shy of a bit of hard work. These bales of straw will weigh around 300kgs each so the mog could be towing close to 15 tons - a full trailer load here but there would have to be even more weight to push the mog to its maximum capacity of 20 tons.
The mog is fully equipped to agricultural spec with an AV pick-up hitch (painted black to match the rest of the mog instead of our signature blue colour), as well as a rear linkage and PTO plus hydraulic and trailer air braking. It's had quite a life having done over 400,000 kms. This may sound like a lot but the mog is still going strong - a clear testament to just how tough these vehicles are.
