Stuttgart/Gerlingen, Nov 29, 2012 -
Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to get into a spin on a road covered in wet leaves will know just how dangerous road conditions can be at this time of year. Trees and bushes shed their leaves, and a dangerous covering can build up on roads and streets which can be as slippery as ice. In such circumstances there is only one solution: the debris must be removed quickly, before any accidents can occur and any possible claims for damages arise.

In future the road maintenance department of the municipal cleaning services in the French capital - Propreté de Paris - will be working with the Mercedes-Benz Unimog. To this end the municipal authority in Paris purchased a total of nine Unimog U 400 with tunnel washing units by the leading manufacturer of mowing and tunnel cleaning equipment, Mulag based in Oppenau/Black Forest, in 2007. In addition the vehicles come with demountable bodies for grit spreaders, snowploughs and snow clearance units by Schmidt Winterdienst- und Kommunaltechnik GmbH in St. Blasien (Black Forest).
