It looks like Brian's westfalia 411????
Title: Re: Unimog Pics (started 05/11/2012)
Post by: Villager on April 14, 2014, 01:33:48 pm
Yep, that's a Westfalia 411A :) quite a tidy looking thing, few things like the chrome trims are on the wrong way round, and I'd check that air intake isn't connected as well.
However, i would note the way the front panel look like its been repaired, and how the cab looks 4 point mounted (the 2 brackets either side of the chassis), that's not original and could mean it has a cracked chassis.

Yeah that's a small emplacement excavator. I should imagine they're a real giggle when using the rather large back hoe. Probably drags the mog around a fair bit if you hit anything hard?

Post by: Villager on November 10, 2014, 08:49:43 am
Hard to tell, I'm thinking 416, because of the 6 stud axles (this could also mean it's a light sbu chassis) and also the gear levers, but the switches and dash lights look like a later sbu/lbu fitment, but it depends, the manufacturer could have used an old 416 chassis.

Post by: njc110381 on November 13, 2014, 04:27:06 pm
I noticed that too. I've never seen one in the flesh but videos of them make them look very impressive. Apparently they have no diffs though so steering is a bit interesting and tyre wear can be quite serious? Still, a fantastic toy to own!
Title: Re: Unimog Pics (started 05/11/2012)
Post by: Shaunymog 007 on November 13, 2014, 08:26:13 pm
Indeed they don't have a diff as such, they do have a limited slip in the drive train, so basically the left 3 wheels can slip different to the right 3, that is why when flying down the motorway the truck tends to go to the left, then the right and so on (but only slightly)
99.9% of problems are with the lack of proper maintenance, tyre wear can be reduced if the pressures are checked every time, and oils checked and maintained. My friend has one in Leeds, he drives it everywhere and has no problem, last year he came to war and peace show in Kent, driving the stolly and towing a land rover, then after the show drove it home! The only problem he had, was the (non original) flashing beacon fall off!
They are awesome off road.  :)
I could tell you lots about them and go on and on but that would be for a different section!

These are pictures of my Farmi winch being used.  The pictures of the truck on the asphalt show how I anchored it to another truck using the front winch since the winch blade could not dig into the asphalt.  The trees were short, fat 32" diameter logs about 200' down a ravine.  I had to put an extension cable on the winch in order to reach them.

That's some piece of kit Mr Swede! Very nice! Is that one of those spinning corkscrew log splitters?

 I seldom see those in the UK. I hear they work very fast...... but they do look lethal to me?

 What happens if they jam in a twisted lump of oak with a knot? Or do you only use on pine and the like? Phil.

Post by: njc110381 on February 21, 2015, 08:50:17 am
Wow - that's nice! Good effort! Has it taken much work to get the mog to that sort of shape, or was it always that tidy? It looks lovely.

Two things I would like to look into if and when it's convenient...

The ROPS - is it standard or did you have it made? The bed on my mog is slightly short and I think what you have would fit behind my cab. Not wanting to sound like a spoilt child here, but I have to have one! :D

The upright exhaust which has appeared at some point during your ownership. That's something else I'd like to do, but am unsure of how to come up with a tidy flexible joint that allows the cab to twist/flex without straining anything. How have you done it?

So many photos... would you mind if I added some of them to my screensaver collection?
Title: Re: Unimog Pics (started 05/11/2012)
Post by: Nickrussell on February 21, 2015, 05:09:59 pm
Yep i agree with the others, thats a really smart looking bit of kit you have there. particulay like the rear lights.
Title: Re: Unimog Pics (started 05/11/2012)
Post by: bwswede on February 21, 2015, 07:01:54 pm
Gentlemen,

Thanks for all the kind words.

Yes, it is a spinning corkscrew.  Very dangerous if you're not careful, but one heck of a fast splitter.  Splits wood faster that I can feed it.  I have never had a piece of wood get stuck.  I suppose if one did I would knock it off with another piece.

Yes, it took a lot of effort to change it from the condition it was in went I bought it to its present shape.  I am not a mechanic by any means so I learned a lot along the way.

The ROPS is made by Case for 406 Unimogs they branded as their own.  It is very thick walled, thicker walled tubing than my dad's Cat bulldozer.  It mounts the frame using 4 large bolts through a flattish upside down "U" shape like the mid-mount Werner winches do.  It is made to rest the backhoe on when it is folded up (I don't have one).

The upright exhaust was one of the best improvements I have made to the truck.  It gets the smoke and stink up in the air instead of into my clothes and lungs.  Especially when the truck is cold.  It is hard welded to the ROPS because the ROPS is hard bolted to the frame.  No movement anywhere.  Maybe I didn't do it right but it has been several years now and there are no signs of damage anywhere.

Feel free to use any of the photos for your screen saver.  You are very nice to ask, more so than the Farmi USA distributor.  I was looking for winch parts and went to their site for the USA and while looking around the pages noticed my truck as one of the 4 photos they use to show off their product.  See it here:  http://www.northeastimplement.com/Products/Farmi-Winches/

The rear lights are not Unimog, but I am looking for some so if anybody has some for sale please let me know.  The lights that are on the back of the truck are a result of me breaking the stock lights on one side when one of my tire chains broke swung up and tore off the fender and the lights mounted to it.  It was a very violent action.

I sure am enjoying looking around the site at all the great Unimogs the club members have.  Really some great trucks you guys have.

Best,
BWSwede
