The first Unimog featuring Euro VI technology has now been handed over at the production plant in Wörth am Rhein to its new owner from Winsen/Aller.

The vehicle is a Unimog U 423, finished in municipal orange and equipped with a 170 kW (231 hp) engine, which is now all set to be put to work by Rosinsky Dienstleistungs GmbH. The vehicle will be deployed to tackle winter maintenance duties on behalf of municipal authorities in Lower Saxony. When the cold season comes to an end, the snow plough and salt spreader will be dismantled and replaced with an “embankment landscaping unit”. With the aid of this device, the Unimog is able to build embankments at the sides of new roads by gathering together gravel and earth and compacting it. In addition, the vehicle will also be put to use on behalf of municipal authorities and road construction companies throughout Germany.

Located in Winsen an der Aller, Rosinsky Dienstleistungs GmbH was established by the current owner’s father in 1985 with a Unimog U 411 as its first company vehicle which was used for winter maintenance services. Four years later the company became involved in the street cleaning business, for which it deployed a Unimog with sweeper unit – today it now has three such vehicles. In 1990 it also began transporting building machinery on low loaders. In the meantime the company has built up a staff of 60 employees and boasts a fleet of more than 100 vehicles – of which eleven are Unimogs and now include the new U 423.
