Saurer 6DM / 10DM (Scotts Notes)

  • Hand built in Switzerland by Saurer, these vehicles are incredibly engineered, capable, with Swiss Reliability.  They are a rare vehicle, however the Swiss Military is just now going into their surplus cycle on these trucks.  Total production of the 6DM is 550 units without the winch, and 250 with the Rotzler TR080/2 winch.

  • Five Speed Transmission with Torque Converter and Overdrive splitter.  With about 20 minutes of practice you will be driving it like an automatic.

  • Aluminum Side Rails, Quite, Spacious Cab.

  • These trucks are running the Trilex wheel system so repairs in the field can be easily achieved.

  • Air Shiftable PTO, currently running a hydraulic circuit for the winch.

  • Hydraulic Rotzler Winch that can be routed out the front or the back

  • Cab easily tilts for engine access and maintenance…..a 5 minute procedure.

  • Ride quality is excellent with a comfortable cruise speed of 55 MPH.  (It can be pushed higher if needed.)

  • Axles are a planetary drive.

  • Transmission/Steering is ZF.

  • Engine Injection and Compressor are Bosch, not to mention numerous other items on the vehicle. 

  • All time 4-wheel Drive with a 70/30 power split between front and rear.  When the center differential is locked up the power split between front and rear is 50/50.  A 3rd Position of the air actuated switch engages the rear differential lock.

  • This 6DM was designed to be easily maintained.  Access is excellent.  If you do some research on Saurer you will find they were known for their bullet proof vehicles, many still being used today in commercial service in Switzerland. 

  • Parts on the 6DM will be more difficult than the Unimog or Pinzgauer. 

  • We are hand selecting these vehicles and to the best of our knowledge there are none currently in North America.

  • Direct from the Swiss Military, with DOCUMENTED EXTREMELY LOW KM’s.

  •  Manuals are available in German and we will put the purchaser in direct contact with the company in Switzerland that specializes in all things Saurer.

  • These trucks runs as they should and would make an ideal vehicle for a movie collection, tours, expeditions, etc.
