This is an ex-military Unimog FLU419 code SEE in good condition. Not registered in Hawaii. Not plated. This is an off-road agricultural/military vehicle. We are in the process of getting it street legal. Once that is accomplished in July the price will go up significantly.


5088 miles/371 hours on it since 2003 Freightliner overhaul to original factory specs. Vehicle originally manufactured 88/89. Resprayed all black from military green camo and desert sand before that. All hydraulic tools are in the steel cases including the rare hydraulic chainsaw, jackhammer, drill and impact driver. 3/4” rear PTO driven hydraulic circuit for heavy equipment (mower, back hoe, grader…), front bucket mount with in-cab hydraulic control levers. The original backhoe and loader were not on it when we bought it. We have a Bradco 611 backhoe for it at an additional $2,500. Our backhoe still needs mounting plates made to connect the two together, working on it now. Comes with two extra new tires plus the full-size spare on the truck behind the cab. 2” standard hitch receivers front and back plus a 30-ton Pintle hitch at the back. Air over hydraulic disk brakes with onboard compressed air at four corners. Portal axles give tons of clearance. Full printed technical, service and operator's manual included.

We have it titled and plated in our company name through Dirt Legal out of Montana. Unimogs from the military do not have titles, they are sold with a US Government Bill of Sale only. This one was never titled or registered here in Hawaii. Once titled and registered they are street legal in most states. They have lights and seatbelts and a horn and all things required by law for the road. Hawaii has some kind of problem with Unimogs and consider them tractors. The Dirt Legal route has cost us $1,700 so far to get titled in Montana from afar. We had to setup a Montana LLC to do this. It now has Montana plates and registration. Hawaii plates have not been obtained yet, we are currently in the process of switching the title to Hawaii. To get Hawaii registration we will incur over $500 more in fees and inspections/weight certification. Once done those costs will be added to the listing price.

Condition: a few small rust areas at the sills that I’m working on. The hydraulic line cooler has a small leak and is bypassed, an easy solder job at a radiator shop if adding the backhoe.
Starts right up and pulls strong through all 24 gears (16 forward and 8 reverse). It’s made to go slow with lots of torque. Top speed 45mph. The tires are designed for off-road and agricultural use, not for street. They have soft sidewalls. At speeds over 30mph the truck is not comfortable to drive. Different tires will make it more stable at speed but it tops out at 45mph. This is not a pickup truck. 5.7L Mercedes straight six diesel making 110HP and twice that in torque.

A total of 2416 units of this beast were made worldwide. Recent comparable example just sold on BAT at $42k with the implements. Please do your research on Unimog FLU419 before asking a million questions. Aloha
