Super Fast Cruising Axle Ratio

Super Fast Cruising Axle Ratio

We have developed a "super-fast" crown wheel & pinion to suit most Unimogs with 6 bolt axles.

They can be fitted into standard axle casings without modification and original Mercedes seals & bearings are used upon assembly.

The 24:11 ratio gives a 17% gain on the Mercedes "fast" ratio and a massive 44% increase on the standard crown wheel & pinion ratio.

The benefits include:

-More relaxed cruising.

-Reduction in engine revs at same cruising speed.

-Reduction in noise levels.

-Reduction in fuel consumption.

-Increased range.

-Improved usability

-Increased re-sale value.

A higher top speed is also possible where conditions allow for this to be safely achieved.

A further advantage over buying new crown wheels & pinions from Mercedes is that the "diff casing" does not need to be changed. This costs over £1500+VAT in addition to the costs for the Crown wheel & pinions.

The crown wheels & pinions are made in Europe to top standards by a manufacturer who specialises in truck differentials & gears.

Full assembly & setting up instructions are provided.

For suitability please contact us with your Unimog chassis number and axle numbers.

£1950+VAT for one Unimog set (2 crown wheels & 2 pinions).

"Brilliant company to deal with and a really helpful group of people who know what they are talking about."

Ben Mauger

"First contact with Atkinson Vos became a success, smooth ordering parts, great prices, great support. Fully satisfied customer from Sweden."

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.
