It sure does look like a Unimog SBU. Does it have Portal Axles?
Berliet portals, with 4 wheel steer and crab. And it's quite big compared to a 404 or 406 unimog. I would say around the size of a U1700 may be. 
Big prob i have, is i need to redo all the electricity! :( It's a mess. Fidled with, by a farmer who had no clue!

Hi everybody.

Some might remember me. I sold the iveco 4x4.

And bought this.  (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

An ex snow plow. Originally registered as a truck. It now bears an agricultural tractor licence. And no specified body type. 13 tons, 7.5 ton payload. 3 tons  trailer possible. Homologated on some other papers for 25 tons total.
Since the papers allow me to do nearly anything i want with it.

I ended grafting the iveco's tipper on it. Repairing it, along the line.

And now, it looks like this.  I have a bit more electricory to do. Paint the tipper. And some other bits and bobs.

I love this, I've been looking for an articulating dump to do the same thing. Great job.

Today's load, easy peasy. All taken down from the mountain by a friend's company.  All we had to do is chop and load.  ;D

Easy is good.  I got a nice free score yesterday too.  Messaged an old FBMP add from a tree service that looks for chip dump sites.  Said im in xyz area and take abc.  Called me up next morning saying we got a load of wood to dump, were right up by you all the time on richie hill.  All oak. Free is for me.
