The first test results were impressive.
For the analysis of the pilot project, VR Track has established a
detailed test program with an appropriate reporting system. The
results of this are clear: the Unimog has proven itself as a
light-duty truck which, with its top speed of up to 89 km/h, can get
colleagues very quickly by road to where they are needed. Swapping
from the road to the rails is quick and easy. Plus, thanks to its
platform being suitable for attachments and body-mounted implements,
it is an ideal vehicle. Even in light of the diverse tasks and
demanding weather conditions which it must face, the multifaceted and
adaptable vehicle coped very well.
Finnish Mercedes-Benz general distributor Veho Oy were on hand to
help guarantee the successful implementation of the vehicle, as too
was their Sales Manager Risto Eränen, who didn't just assist the pilot
project, but also coordinated the details for the body and looked
after the training of the operations team at the customer itself.
Users took part in an intensive theoretical training course in
February 2017, followed by practical training on the vehicle and its crane.
