GM 160 S or AF

The trench cutting machine GM 160 AF offers high efficiency and precision

The trench cutting machine GM 160 AF is a mounted trench cutting machine for Unimog. It was designed for tractors with a three-point linkage and can be easily attached to the rear of the tractor. With a weight of 2,300 kg, this trencher is comparatively light and can therefore be used with a large number of tractors. Especially when laying drainage pipes, such a machine proves to be very useful and makes work easier for the users.

The trench cutting machine GM 160 AF is characterized by its high degree of accuracy

When milling trenches, precision is particularly important. The trenches must be milled as cleanly and accurately as possible to accommodate a drainage pipe without difficulty. That is why a high-quality mounted tiller for Unimog is important. This is capable of milling large trenches as well as many small trenches in a very short time. Such machines are therefore used both in private house building and on professional construction sites. The trench cutting machine GM 160 AF has already proven itself in various construction projects and has convinced by its strength and reliability.

The attachment milling machine for Unimog achieves its high precision among other things due to the carbon chisel chains and mixing chains it uses. The chain widths vary between 150-450 millimetres and are characterised by excellent workmanship and high stability. The milling bar depth is 1,250 or 1,600 millimetres. The sole scraper with sole plate, which can be adjusted mechanically or automatically to the respective milling depth, is another highly useful tool. If required, a loading conveyor with a depth of 3,000 millimetres can be used for direct loading.

A mounted milling machine for Unimog performs these tasks

An attachment milling machine for Unimog is particularly suitable for laying cables, pipes and drainage pipes. They therefore play a decisive role in house and road construction, but are also used in agriculture. Here, for example, drainage pipes are laid in fields to prevent backwater and the resulting damage. Thanks to the trenches cleanly cut by the GM 160 AF trench cutter, it is easy to place the corresponding pipes in the ground. The excavated material is so practically laid next to the trenches that subsequent backfilling is no problem at all.

A milling bar depth of either 1,250 millimetres or 1,600 millimetres is available, depending on requirements. The bars can be used laterally offset, which noticeably facilitates work on obstacles. In addition, different track widths ranging from 150 to 450 millimetres can be used. This provides the greatest possible degree of individualisation, so that the mounted tiller for Unimog can be used for numerous projects and for various surfaces. A laser system for manual or automatic depth adjustment makes a further contribution to this flexibility.

Important prerequisites for the use of an attachment milling machine for Unimog

In order to be able to use the trench cutting machine GM 160 AF, it is important to have a tractor with three-point linkage at the rear. Such tractors can work with different types of transmission. The cultivator for Unimog can operate with a hydrostatic drive as well as with a super creeper. In addition, it must be decided before the selection is made how the drive of the cultivator for Unimog is to be provided. For example, a PTO shaft or a hydraulic motor can be selected.

Individual adaptations are possible at any time with a GM 160 AF trench digger. It should be noted, however, that a plus in accessories always goes hand in hand with an increase in the weight of the tiller for Unimog. The pipe-laying shaft, for example, is a very popular accessory. These make the laying of drainage pipes in the ground child's play. When selecting a machine, the intended use of the machine should always be kept in mind in order to be able to select and use the appropriate equipment.
