2 unimogs came to my work on wednesday with a trailer full of
goodies to show a bunch of poeple what they can do. Made my year it was so cool. I got to ride in one around the chip pile I run and man can those machines go anywhere. Its been a dream to ride in one and now I can say I did:). The 966 I drive has problems on the pile sometimes but the unimog mad it look easy. We were driving around in work horses mod and man it was slow the guy put it in turtle mod and first gear and i couldnt tell it was moving it was sweet. We climbed a 45 deg bank and didnt even spin a tire. Makes me feel like my bronco is a go cart time to modify the bronco when my wife oks it.
