Last weekend, sat on the porch in Wellington with family that we were visiting. Imagine my surprise when hearing the unmistakeable sound of an OM352 diesel and big tyres driving into the complex!

This 406 belongs to Viking Adventures, and was dropping off a bunch of kids that he had taken up into the mountain (kids' party):

Not a Unimog, but the big brother of the Unimog - Actros 3650. Imagine the camper you can build on this beast!

The pictures don't quite show the size of the truck. To put it in perspective - I'm almost 2m tall and the door handle is at eye level for me...

With 500hp and 2700Nm torque this beast can do some work.

Stucky Motors has the MB agency in Standerton, Newcastle and Piet Retief if I am not mistaken, and Rainer Stucky is or was the owner of a very neat 240GD cabrio some years ago.

I see the toys have got bigger!

Thanks Andrew, interesting!
Vryheid also has Stucky Motors, not sure if it is the same owner?

I wonder if he still has his 240.

I am sure the Mog will also beat the Power Wagon in the fuel consumption category too!

What is the top speed of the Power Wagon?
"Speed never to be exceeded: 55 mph" Fuel consumption: between 35 and 40 l/100km during modest on-road use in town.
I do not know why I love it: it is a slow, clumbsy, noisy, inefficient brute. Maybe it is the looks:cool:
I must admit though, that I told the owner of the 411, that his Unimog would be the only old vehicle in the crowd, that I would swap for the PW.

Gosh, it must have a simple tap in place of a carburettor! Just kidding. I must admit the looks always fascinated me too.

I suspect some exceptional engineering was done here.
