Every one needs a universal motor Gerat.
« on: August 14, 2014, 08:08:09 pm »
I've been buying a few bits of equipment to add to my tool box. If you have a unimog, you may as well use it to do as many jobs as possible.

Nice. Do you actually need it, or just like the look of it? Often it's the latter with me!

I wish I had room for all those implements ! I've got to many Unimogs no room for more toys. I have a 2m grass flail and a log splitter and some winches but the crane is the handiest peice of kit we have, now we have an under belly PTO it's joy to use.
All that kit looks good on your 411 in proportion  :)

All of these tools were bought to do jobs that I would otherwise be paying someone else to do. Practical fun is how I see it. I don't see much point in having a 3 point linkage and PTO if it doesn't get a work out from time to time. Also the rear tipping body has been very handy for moving stuff about. (Logs and Rocks).
Now that I have a factory 3 point linkage on the 406 I will be using the back actor to move soil into the back of the 411 for some landscaping work I have planned. It has also proved very handy for digging out old tree roots. And there are some monster roots on my site.

Great demonstration of just how universal the mog can be, even more so the fact that you use them all for what they were intended.

I've looked at back actors on my 406 for landscaping. How well does it work on yours? I need to sort my rear body on kassy before I buy more kit lol. So far I've the chipper and hay Bob

411's are good for hobby mogs and if you're not interested in going anywhere fast :P . They're getting a bit of a collectors item now for working hard :)
