Product info

Optimally suited to the UNIMOG the "RX500" handles loading and transport works with ease. Parking of the front loader can be easily done and only takes a few minutes. There are no additional tools necessary.
The coupling brackets are constructed in a way, that after parking the front loader, the front attachment area of the vehicle can be used for other devices.

Weight frontloader: 645kg
Weight support beam inclusive coupling plate: 300kg
Weight earth bucket eg. 1.600mm: 185kg

The original Hauer front coupling plate is involved in the support beam and is mounted 70mm further forward as the coupling plates CP3 or CP5.

Optionally, a support beam is available for the Dücker torsion frame. The ground clearance is not thereby reduced.

Optionally a rear counterweight is available. It is delivered empty and has a weight of 165kg. With eg. crushed stones filled, the weight is about 950kg.
