The Unimog in airport service

Safe runways in severe weather conditions are essential for problem-free airport operation. This is when Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks provide crucial assistance – throughout the world and throughout the year: From cleaning road signs, marker posts, crash barriers and other traffic guidance equipment to sweeping access roads and aircraft parking zones; from mowing between runways to deployment as a fully fledged aircraft towing vehicle; from de-icing and clearing snow off runway marker lights to winter service using a snow plough, snow cutter or spreader; from aircraft refuelling to airport catering. Or you can really make an impact with the high-pressure jet sweeper developed especially for airport applications. The blowing nozzle develops an air speed of up to 500 km/h – so that not a single snowflake stays on the ground.

However, the Unimog does not only guarantee smooth take-offs and landings. If the worst should ever come to the worst it will be reliably there to help – as a robust fire-fighting vehicle with water or foam tank and high-pressure pumps.
