Unimog Crane on the Farm

by T H WHITE on November 1, 2019

The Palfinger UK team had the pleasure of supporting Mercedes-Benz at their ‘Unimog on the Farm’ events. 

These one-day events, held at locations across the UK, are aimed at individuals and businesses operating vehicles in the agriculture and arboriculture industries, showcasing the capabilities of the versatile Mercedes-Benz Unimog.

  During the events, Palfinger UK displayed a Unimog-mounted PK 12.502 SH B boom crane, with a reach of 10.3m and capacity of 1040kg at that distance. The body preparation and fitting, crane mounting and body painting was all carried out in Palfinger UK’s 17-bay workshops in Devizes, Wiltshire.

  Additionally, visitors on each day were invited to take part in a fun, practical activity for a chance to win a Palfinger watch. The challenge – to manoeuvre a tennis ball attached to the crane hook around a series of positions onto the top of road cones, as quickly and accurately as possible.

  National Key Account Manager for Palfinger UK, Tex Allen, commented: “This was an excellent series of events and we were delighted to be able to support our friends at Mercedes-Benz to raise the profile of the perfect pairing of a Unimog vehicle with Palfinger crane. Being able to run the interactive competition brought some fun to our display too, and certainly brought attention to the vehicle.”

  Events were held at Mercedes-Benz Trucks Events Centre in Barnsley, Jimmy’s Farm in Ipswich, Cotswold Farm Park in Cheltenham and The 3 Buffalo Farm in Scotland.
