    Default Baby Mog Road Grading

    34Hp 4cyl diesel. 1958 Unimog 411.110 on its way to do some needed roadworks with a 1959 Gallion pull behind grader.

    Different type of fun this is.

    Why is the operator in the cab and not on the grader?

    Who you think is the operator in the Moggie is the SWAMBO.
    Also, it was being moved from one area to the next, crossing a low water bridge. I took the pic waiting for them before we continue... me then as the operator.

    Petri, just for the record, it is original in shape, drive train, motor and colour.

    Groenie (and three other 411’s, Geelie, Pinky and Carmen) can be seen on the 8th of Feb at our Unimog Service Day.

    Oooo! So the operator was taking a break. The supervisor was doing what she was supposed to do, and the driver was waiting for the operator? Sounds like a typical South African operation.

    I have got a 1961 model. Still running and original, except for the tyres.
    Converted a set of rims to 16 and run it on 265/75/16s

    Mine was fitted with 18,5' tyres.
    Only could find tyres in the EU and at a hell of a price.
    I still have a set of original rims , tough.

    Nice to hear there is another one that is in fair condition.

    On your question and a bit...

    From R5k to around R60k depending on a number of aspects.

    One key aspect is the LHD and RWC-ed, licences and on the road. If that is fine price is good, if not, one will not get it on ENATIS and it becomes an expensive toy.

    Another is the VIN which can give you build history.

    Completeness, originality and all tech functioning can help.

    Hubs on these little guys need oil just as the bug guys do. Standing not used in wind and rain kills the hubs. Many owners also forget to attend to that and the bull-gear could be damaged. Replace one at a cost of about 18k...

    The OM636 motors are slaves, but could have seen better days. Parts? Well hmmm.

    It is basically a tractor (what it was designed for), and with the average age ranging around 60 years, it becomes extremely costly to build these little guys up (parts can be obtained in €) and maintain them. You must be a serious collector to venture there. (Have one... park it in your lounge ).

    It is not a 4x4 plaything. Well if you have money to waste it can be used for that. But many true Moggers will despise you.

    And if it is butchered to fit e.g a Toyota diesel or Nissan something, body cut and modified, you do not own a Unimog.

    There are quite a few in Namibia that we have heard of or have seen photo’s of.

    One was a 2010 which is the for runner to the 411, build between 1950 and 1953. It is still in daily use on that farm. (But we suspect not to run in Gemsbok and catch them )

    Speed , surely is not its strong point. Confirm even less. Strong as hell though, with the reduction gears and diff-locks...(6 forward and 2 revers)
    Mine is 100% original (except for the tyres) and still runs smooth.
    Brakes needs some attention and have a few oil leaks, due to age.

    I had an older one butchered , but still have the 1800 cc motor. Sold the rolling chassis and gearbox to a guy building a vasbyt 4x4 monster.

    They seem to be quite expensive in Europe @ between 5000 and 10 000 Euro.
    Maybe I should consider a full restoration on it.
    Will try to post some pics over the weekend.

    I would surely like to post some of your pics on the Unimog Freunde Club of South Africa FB page, that is if you give me permission to do so.

    And maybe a little story on the history of it?

    If you want, you can send it on to our gmail address [email protected]
