U1500 Research Mog Put to the Test in Welsh Moorla

U1500 Research Mog Put to the Test in Welsh Moorla

We supplied this U1500 mog to a University in Wales who are undertaking a research project which will give vital information about the development capabilities of Miscanthus, a C4 grass which is native to Eastern Asia. Scientists at the university have one of the largest Miscanthus collections outside of Asia and the project is underway since DEFRA identified the plant as one of two potential species worth developing for bio energy in the UK.

The mog has been carefully prepared for the task as on the front it has been fitted with a large PTO driven forage harvester which then feeds over the top of the mog into the chip box on the back. The project is important as the world's population is predicted to rise to nine billion by 2050 and food productivity will have to rise by 70% to meet demand. Non-edible plants are an attractive alternative to using food crops for bio energy (a current trend) if they can be grown in a way that does not compete with food. As Miscanthus grows quite happily on uncultivated land, it so far suits the job perfectly.

We're happy to supply a Unimog for such a worthy cause and are confident it will meet all expectations. Good luck with the project guys!

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.

Pieter

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.
