Safety with MULAG
Based on the long-standing equipment partnership between Unimog and MULAG and intensive cooperation, which stands for the joint development of equipment perfectly matched to the Unimog, you can be sure that all aspects of the Unimog mounting and assembly guidelines are fulfilled and certified with a letter of confirmation. In particular, it is necessary to prove compliance with important aspects in order to obtain this document:
- Compliance with permissible axle loads and the maximum total weight
- Reliable stability due to tested residual wheel load with maximum extension of the boom
- High-capacity hydraulics with adequate cooling and filtering
- Tested interfaces – mechanical, electrical and hydraulic
- Reduction of the roll angle in operation due to torsion frame and rear axle locking
With the Unimog mounting and assembly guidelines, Daimler AG has defined a precise specification as to how devices must be designed for proper mounting on the Unimog. The operating manual of the vehicle also clearly points out the advantages of an existing letter of confirmation:
The warranty for the Unimog can be endangered if these mounting and assembly guidelines are not observed. General requirements such as sufficient stability, maintained axle loads and trouble-free interfaces are prerequisites for the safe use of the vehicle/device combination.
MULAG original spare parts
In the case of performance-critical parts such as hydraulic components, gears and filters, safety-critical parts such as protective chains and sensors and wearing parts such as flail cutters, cutting knives and mounting parts, no compromises should be made in the quality of spare parts in order to avoid endangering the safety of users and equipment.
Original parts also increase cost-effectiveness through greater availability, higher energy efficiency and an extended service life. The GS safety mark is only valid if original parts are used. Non-original parts, on the other hand, invalidate the warranty.
Product details for more safety
The operator‘s safety increases tremendously if he does not have to leave the cab during the work assignment. MULAG offers various product details to make adjustments to the boom and the carrier vehicle conveniently and safely from the cab.
- Hydraulic torsion frame
- Hydraulic wheel support (Rear axle)
- Hydraulic rotating device (Pick-up device Working Attachment)
All our working attachments can be brought to a standstill within approx. 4 seconds by means of a brake valve. On attachments equipped with the m|tronic flail arm relief control system, the cutter shaft stops automatically when it lifts off the ground. This means extra safety when using the equipment.
Boom protection system
Depending on the reach our boom systems are hydraulically secured and retract in the event of an obstacle.
Ergonomics in the workplace
The MULAG device control m|control provides you with a simple and efficient control concept for the combination use of boom devices.
- Ergonomic multifunction controls for more comfort and safety
- A compact colour display with a clear and easy to read user interface
- High operational reliability and convenience with m|tronic power arm relief
Accredited testing and certification centres test the compliance of our products with relevant safety standards und document their success with a GS mark of conformity. MULAG mowing heads are, for example, subject to a safety test in accordance with EN 13524 or EN 17106.
With certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 we document through regular external audits by TÜV Süd that our quality management system (QMS) meets the requirements of customer orientation, process orientation and continuous improvement of product quality.
With the CE label we as the manufacturer confirm that our products comply to valid European directives, particularly in connection with product safety. This label ensures that the end customer receives safe products from free trade within the EU.
EMC testing ensures that technical devices do not interfere with each other by unwanted electrical or electromagnetic effects. This ensures smooth operation with the Umimog carrier vehicle.
