Default The Pinzgauer 4x4 / 6x6

Hi all,

We've been speaking about the Desi jeeps, gypsies, pajeros, land cruisers, land rovers and even the Nissan 4W73 but I am surprised that our forum doesn't have a thread on the Austrian Pinzgauer.

To my knowledge, this vehicle is available in 4x4 & 6x6 options. It's got hydraulic differential locks and has portal axles (similar to the Unimog). The approach and departure angles are 45 degrees and fording depth is 700 mm

Here are a couple of videos from youtube.

This one's crazy. Its climbing almost a vertical wall

Does anyone have more information about this truck ? it looks amazing though

Default re: The Pinzgauer 4x4 / 6x6

I have always been fascinated by the Pinzgauer and In certain ways found them technologically superior to the Unimog (but that might be just me)

Just to add to the info provided, here are some more facts related to the capability of this amazing vehicle:

-45 approach and departure angles
-100% slope, or until tyres lose traction
-700 millimetres (27.6 in) fording depth
-Can climb down a 360 millimetres (14.2 in) wall
-43.5 side-slope
-1000/1500 kg of payload (44/66)
-335 millimetres (13.2 in) of clearance (lowest point when fully loaded)
-top speed (44): 110 kilometres per hour (68 mph); (66): 100 kilometres -per hour (62 mph)
-Full engine power available at 4 kilometres per hour (2 mph)
-M body type carries 10 people (44), 14 people (66)


Here is a video elaborating the peculiarities of the Pinzgauer driveline:
