Unimog introduces Canadian-made 3-point hitch

PORTLAND, Ore. (Aug. 12, 2004) — A Canadian company from Manitoba is now manufacturing a heavy-duty 3-point
hitch option for North American customers of the Unimog U500 vocational vehicle.

Unimog Trucks — a subsidiary of Freightliner LLC — says it will make the vehicle available to U.S. and Canadian dealers immediately.

The 3-point hitch — manufactured by Mandako Agri, a farm implement OEM based in Plum Coulee, Man. — is a universal attachment that enables the Unimog U500 to hook up with hundreds of implements used in agriculture, such as plows, harrows, rakes, mowers and agricultural trailers. It mates with both mechanical and hydraulically-operated machinery.

The quick-attach design features one upper and two lower attachment arms, allowing the operator to hook up to anything that a farm tractor pulls. An adapter plate is available for front-mount locations.
