Unimog fleet

MÁV has invested in a fleet of

state of the art Mercedes-Benz

Unimogs with a custom raildrive

system by Zagro enabling

the vehicles to drive on both

roads and rail tracks. For these

vehicles, MÁV has acquired

several pieces of detachable

equipment allowing the

company to perform multiple

tasks from the same vehicles

including overhead line

maintenance, tree trimming,

vegetation control and snow

removal in the winter. For this

project, TIME supplied MÁV

with 8 identical detachable

“quick shift” superstructures

with an ETM-36-140-F, H-frame

outriggers and FPC controls.
