Both ranges of Mercedes-Benz Unimogs are now available with specially-developed tyres for added grip and traction when tackling winter jobs, such as snow ploughing and salt spreading.
The standard range includes the Conti AC 70 445/65R22.5; Conti HTC 385/65R22.5; Conti MTP 80/81 335/80R20; Conti MTP 80/81 335/80R20 and 365/ Conti HDW 385/65R22.5 – a Scandinavian-design truck tyre proven to add reliability of grip on black ice. The MTP 81 has been specially designed for improved winter service operations, and includes better traction, braking and cornering capabilities.
“The snow plough or spreader is often leading the traffic in difficult conditions, particularly off motorways and dual carriageways: it is making the highway safe for following motorists, and that means reliability in the harshest winter weather is vital. The reliability of the Unimog is enhanced by the introduction of this new range of specially-developed heavy duty tyres,” says Mark Hopkins, Director of Unimog UK.
