Southern Africa Mining Project

Southern Africa Mining Project

We are extremely happy to be working with one of our existing customers again who are one of the largest mining companies in Southern Africa.

We had supplied 7x Unimogs to them last year, and they have returned to us this year increasing their order to 10 Unimogs.

We will be preparing the vehicles to a top standard to withstand the rigours of life in an open cast mine.

As these Unimogs were ex-military we are currently in the process of demilitarising these vehicles. This process includes removal of the gun turret and special military lighting.

Some popular African spec upgrades will be added which include Heavy Duty radiator, extra fuel filter with water trap, and simplification of air system to improve reliability and make maintenance more straightforward.

We will be carrying out a comprehensive service all defective parts on the Unimog will be replaced and a new floor in the rear body fitted to all.

Matching Michelin tyres will be fitted to all of the Unimogs to make them uniform.

Finally the Unimogs will be given a good quality full repaint including chassis, wheels this will be in our customers’ corporate livery.

We will arrange shipping and all necessary paperwork such as export inspections, customs entry.

U1000 - Jason Milson brought his U1000 to us after many years of use the cab had seen better days.

Here you can see Dan lifting the shiny new cab onto the Mog giving it a fresh look and a new lease of life.

We have also carried out a few repairs to this Mog and have given it a bit of TLC.

U900 - This U900 came in for an AV inspection.

We will be giving this mog a full refurb, inspecting to see what repairs it may need and bringing it back to life.

416 DOKA Update - Finally the awaited update on our on-going project the DOKA 416 double cab bound for the USA.

Lars-Erik Bammis Ohlsson

When I bought my U1000 “Rustbucket” , Simon gave me a fair & frank appraisal of its condition. The mog was cleaned and shipped professionally with no issues upon landing here in Australia. Since then, AV has provided me with excellent spares support and the occasional bit of advice. Posting was always prompt and economical via Royal Mail – this has taken a lot of the pain out of restoration. Highly recommended.


Atkinson Vos not only supplied my Unimog some years ago but they have been ever present when I needed any advice or assistance. My Unimog recently underwent a full refurbishment in their workshop and I have to say the result has been nothing short of superb. My Moggy is not only in great mechanical shape but it looks great too. Top marks Atkinson Vos.

James Mc Donnell, Ireland

Whenever I drive my MOG on to their yard, I have a feeling of excitement about the opportunities for upgrade and improvement that Atkinson Vos offers. Anything is possible, and everything is done to a very high standard!. Atkinson Vos prepared my Unimog to an excellent standard. Their aftersales service is great too.


Hi Simon, The shims arrived last week. My unimog is now running perfectly! Thank you a lot for the excellent service, I really appreciate it!

Casper Hanekamp

We have been using Atkinson Vos for a number of years now, they have carried out some upgrades and all servicing and repairs, their staff are friendly and always willing to help. The workshop guys always offer advice and easy fix solutions over the phone and on the odd occasion visited our workshop to view and inspect the vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend the company, Thanks to all the staff.
