The beacon button is for when the vehicle has a beacon mounted on it and you wanna switch it on/off

The ports on the back of the truck are hydraulic lines most likely hooked up to the trucks transmission.

Hell Doug, why did you grap the uglyst model? Most common Universal Motor Gerät (full name) are sqare an have edges. Even in germany this Thing is ugly. The Unimog is one of the Best german inventions. It is unbelievable versitail, strong and insanely offroad usable

Okay, am I the only one to notice you were in essence driving and rating a German-version tractor, (mistakenly calling it a "pick-up" truck?!) There are countless implements that "hook-up" to this behemoth, (and yes, those connections front-and-back are not for you to power an external AC while you rough it out in the woods, but to connect to those implements!) I am always puzzled that people can purchase such a thing in the US, without even knowing what it really is. (They plow fields, they mow grass off autobahns, etc., they clear snow off of roads, etc., etc.) Yes, this is really a huge (and decidedly expensive) tractor! Clever people, these Germans, and well, it shouldn't surprise you that their version of a tractor would end-up looking like a proverbial Swiss Army Knife on gigantic tires-and-wheels! If you want something to compare to the massive American freight-trains (pick-up trucks,) you should choose the G-wagen. This (!) (I am now trying to sound like you! :D ) on the other hand, is NOT a pick-up truck, but a tractor. (Now please write that on a blackboard 50-times!) :D By the way, I very much enjoy watching your channel, (though I do not always agree with your ratings!) :D

Unimog means: UNIversal MOtoren Gerät - Universal-Motor-Device ... and that says it all This here is only the Crew Cab version of the more utility version of a utility truck. There are many other versions and : The Unimog is "THE" german workhorse! Nearly every thing you can do with this truck. military, plow truck, argicultural truck, extreme offrod, street cleaning, off road survival camping, mining, fire fighting and and and When others stop, this truck begins tho work! Type unimog and extreme at google or youtube and be amazed.

So the tire with the pole is to fold your mirrors in because in europe there are really small streets where you need to put your mirrors closer to the truck or else you might hit something with your mirrors, and the beacon button is for your orange flash spinning lamp found mostly on top of the truck and behind in the right or left corner off the bumper to let people know you are heavy loaded

Ya know what would be awesome, if Doug actually asked the owner or salesperson what all these awesome buttons and stuff are and what they do before he goes on to tell us what they do. Yeah, some stuff is obvious and common sense, but I’ve also watched a couple of his vids where he gets things wrong when he thinks he knows what they actually do do.

universal motor engine. I used to drive one 40 years ago, with previous gearbox, all manual. It had gears 1 through 8. Plus a switch for forward and backwards. And a switch for reducing speed to one fourth. Meaning, you had a total of 16 gears forward and 16 gears backwards. 8+8 speeds for road, but you normally used 3, 5 and 7 on the road. And 8+8 gears for off road. We had winch in front and back, plus crane with passenger cabin to lift up to 30 m height. Plus a field drill for drilling manholes 3 m deep, 80 cm diameter, for foundations of buildings.And you had the switch for the differentials. There was almost no terrain where you couldn't get through.

Fun fact about Unimogs and their durability: Mercedes Benz still keeps stockpiles of spare parts for Unimogs made in the 1950ies. A curator of the Unimog museum at Mercedes Benz once was asked whether it wouldn't be simpler just to cannibalize old models which were broken beyond repair, to which the curator simply answered "Of course, but the problem with that is- it has never happened so far."

A sideways tilting truck bed is actually quite common for this type of vehicle since in Germany they are often used in roadworks. If you have a truck bed full of gravel it is far more efficient to park parallel to the hole, dump the gravel in and pull away in order to go an fetch the next load, than to back up and make a 90 degree turn blocking two traffic lanes in the process. BTW: the beacon switch in the console is intended for an optional warning beacon which can be fitted to the vehicle. Unimogs are platforms for a variety of specialized vehicles, from construction site trucks, agricultural tractors to towing vehicles , fire trucks or military field ambulances. Depending on the intended use you have to be able to fit two different kinds of beacons to the vehicle. Blue for emergency vehicles such as fire trucks and ambulances and orange for slow moving vehicles which might pose a traffic hazard, such as road inspection and construction vehicles.

*1)* By using the *"donkey-switch"* you can drive at a lower speed with the same engine speed. Then you can for example use certain attachments or increase the pulling force, the *"rabbit-switch"* is used for normal *road operation* *2)* The *button over the left power window switch* is for using *rotating beacons / lightbars* (by the way: the switch right of it is to switch on the *power take-off* - that transfers mechanical power from the engine to other equipment) *3)* _..."the button that looks like a tire hanging on a pole"..._ is simply the *mirror heating.* It is really embarrassing when you cannot interpret even the simplest symbols (for which even an average intelligent person does not need any operating instructions) and which Mercedes has made especially understandable for *every* one... And - by the way: This is *no* "pickup truck" but a *truck!* Or do you seriously mean, this vehicle would comparable with vehicles like a Ford F350, Dodge Ram, or Chevy Silverado...??? It has a reason, why the vehicle papers identify the Unimog as a *truck* in Germany, while *pickup trucks* here simply called *cars* (and so also usually identified as such in their vehicle papers). But at the latest when it comes to *air brakes,* and *the tipper,* it should be clear also to the last ignorant that it is a real *truck* - in this case even a three-way tipper (I´m not sure if this is the right translation for it - in Germany it´s called "Dreiseitenkipper", that means that the charge can be tipped off in 3 directions: to backwards, to the left, and to the right)! A short extra-info to the *name* of the Unimog ( which is an *acronym:* ), and the development of this *truck:* *Unimog* means *UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät* (what translated means *Universal motor device* - this is exceptionally exactly the same meaning as in German / this is also the German wording) and was conceived immediately after the Second World War, originally as a purely agricultural vehicle. But very soon the Unimog turned into a special type of truck for military use, municipal use, forestry, and countless purposes of use more - *worldwide.* In the USA this truck so would be named Unimod, if the name components would be converted 1:1 into an English name. And - last but not least - the "power connections" (...) at the front and on the back: These are *hydraulic* connections, for connecting *hydraulic* attachments and / or operating external *hydraulic* devices such as log splitters, earth drills, and countless more things!!! *Holy crap...* - that all really nearly *hurt* me...!

You definitely need to come to Germany, to the Unimog Museum, and test the newer Mercedes Unimog of the U-5000 series. The Motto of the Unimog is : we can go almost anywhere in the world and where we can't go you definitely need a boat or Plane.

I’ve used a Unmog for work and there’s absolutely nothing better when the going gets though, except maybe a tractor, however that doesn’t offer the utility of a Unimog. We always compare vehicles by how bad a place you can get t stuck in, and this just takes the cake. Also the power outlets Doug is presenting seem to be hydraulic, not electric
