Jens Riedel and Silvio Schubert keep Torgau clean with their street sweepers. They drive through the streets of the small town in Saxony for eight hours a day. Recently, they have started using a new Unimog U 427 on the job that draws its power from an OM 936 (Euro VIe) BlueTec diesel engine. This engine generates 200 kW (272 hp) of performance from six cylinders and a displacement of 7.7 liters, generating a maximum torque of 1,100 Nm. This gives Stadtwerke Torgau a compact, powerful and versatile vehicle that complements the previous Unimog U 300 and U 400 implement carriers in its fleet. The decisive factor for the new acquisition was the over ten-year positive experience with the UNIversal-Motor-Gerät: “Daily operations run smoothly with the Unimog we already have in our fleet. The vehicles run like clockwork. It’s really fun,” Jens Riedel explains. Read more >>
