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 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).
We recommend that all associated bearings & seals are changed when fitting the crownwheel & pinion. We can supply these parts at extra cost.
Unimog owners who have upgraded to our superfast crownwheel & pinion are universally thrilled with the results.
Some typical feedback includes:
“We drove down to Harwich with a huge smile on our faces. We even could talk to each other and fully understood each other. Before it was impossible to talk and understand while driving.”
“We are now able to pass trucks easy on the motorways, we did not even think about that before!!! Amazing result!”
