Australian Unimog Expeditions Recover Prime Mover bogged in desert
In June 2008 on our Colours of Australia Tour, the crew at Australian Unimog Expeditions came across a prime mover bogged on the Anne Beadell Highway. With his excavator broken down the driver was unable to get his big rig moving. No amount of pushing or pulling with a landcruiser was going to budge it.
This is where Australian Unimog Expeditions came in. We hooked up the prime mover and its rig to our Unimog and reveresed the Unimog. In no time at all the prime mover was out of the bog and able to continue its journey.
It just goes to show when the going gets tough Australian Unimog Expeditions will get you through.
Australian Unimog Expeditions will move your equipment or crew to wherever they need to be. In addition to our own trailer or hauling your trailer, Australian Unimog Expeditions can provide a bobcat and tip truck with a payload of 3.8 tonne if required. Our tough, reliable and versatile Unimog will get the job done no matter what the conditions. Our crew cab Unimog can move up to four passengers at one time and can move payloads of up to 5 tonne on our truck with an additional towing capacity of 7 tonne. The reliability and uncompromising all terrain capability means that we can get that load to the site in a prompt and timely manner with the minimum of fuss. We have done work for Warner Bros Movies on South Stradbroke Island moving equipment across the sand dunes and recovering a number of the other 4WD vehicles along the way.
We have recently purchased a fully sealed Pantech body with a 1.5 t tailgate lifter. We are now building an all-terrain dog trailer on which we will mount this body. Providing a solution for the movement of sensitive equipment which cannot be exposed to the elements. This body may also be set up as a field office if you require.
Australian Unimog Expeditions offers charter tours to customers wishing to experience outback Australia. Whether it be crossing the Gunbarrel highway or doing the Madigan Line of the Simpson Desert we have the experience and know how to get you there. With the completion of our expedition body we will be able to provide transport and accommodation for four passengers. Bring your own itinerary or tell us what you would like to see and we will plan a suitable itinerary for you. We have on board navigation to allow us to find even the most remote site. We have satellite and HF communications to ensure your safety. We can also provide support if you would like to drive your own vehicle but would like the safety and convenience of having the most reliable and versatile off-road vehicle with an experienced outback traveler to lead your journey. In addition we have contacts in the aviation industry and can arrange helicopter and light plane charters should you desire them. In 2008 we were part of the inaugural Colours of Australia Tour where an intrepid group of people from various walks of life, occupations and skill sets traveled through central Australian deserts on an art safari to capture the essence of the Australian outback on various forms of media. The art work was done under the direction of well known Australian Artist John Rigby.
