Gotta love the reversible operators station of the MBtrac.
Some pictures of the rotating drivers console.Those with reverseable steering is really neat. Anybody know which models of MB Trac have this option? Are they drive by wire, are they pure hydraulic steering, or are they something more mechanically complicated?

There is a restored 1800 on mobile.de right now. It can be yours for the low low price of 139,000 Euros.. Looks like the MBtrac holds it's value-even un-restored with high hours.
I think I need one too...
Powerful and efficient
The propulsion system features a Mercedes MTU 6-cylinder powerplant (238 HP, 7.2 liters of displacement, 850 Nm of torque) and, with a top speed of 50 km/h, it is faster than any other forestry vehicle when on the road. The WF trac incorporates modern AdBlue and SCR catalytic converter technology for conformity with EUROMOT 3B. This translates into a fuel savings of between 15 and 20 percent, or an especially economical 0.5 liters per solid meter.
But looking at even the 1991, last generation, full suspension, fully synchronized gearbox, front and rear PTO and power lift, lots of hydraulic outlets front and back, reverse drive, available tipper box, available FEL, equal size front and rear tires, thing was quite ahead of its time. Rear driveshaft was not enclosed in a torque tube so they could be extended (like the U500), quite a few were made into lime spreaders.Flexible and economical
The continuously variable, power-splitting S-Matic transmission provides 75 percent more tractive force than its predecessor; with no direct ratio between engine and travel speeds, it allows extremely economical highway operation at 1,450 rpm and 40 km/h. Your advantage: an ideal relationship between speed and tractive force, extreme economy and optimal operating efficiency with uninterrupted power transfer. And the transfer case, completely developed and manufactured by Werner, allows integration of a transmission PTO shaft or live PTO shaft, with full engine power as an option.
