Great looking bit of kit, but strange location for the exhaust ... i thought it would be vertical given the capability of these as a 4x4 ....

If it is the exhaust it is in the ideal spot to
burn your feet!

I believe the vertical exhausts was more to allow the vehicle to 'wade' through water rather than the ground clearance.....it looks quite high so 4 wd capability wouldnt be too much of a problem. The exhaust pipe looks to be protected by the bodywork

Yes, i agree Barrie, but must be very noisy with window down and poss fumes into crew cab ? to be honest i thought all Unimogs had a vertical exhaust !

Brilliant looking piece of equipment,but if that is the exhaust?out goes all health and safety.
Crews must keep all windows shut-especially in
back because of fumes,no wide boots are to be worn in case of getting caught on exhaust and tripping,and last,cloves must be worn in case
you touch the exhaust when dismounting the appliance-it really is gonna be hot.

Nice picture Rene, I have always admired the Unimog in all its forms. John I read somwhere that if its not a wader they prefer a short pipe, somthing to do with a backlog of exhaust gasses affecting performance. Perhaps somebody could enlighten us?
