Relisted due to previous winner not completing the sale or even contacting us despite numerous request - please only bid if you intend to complete the sale!

You're bidding on a HIGHLY DESIRABLE  M-Reg Mercedes "Mini artic" tractor unit. Based around the dependable (and very easy to maintain) Merc 609D chassis this is a beautiful little tractor unit that was converted to 5th wheel FROM NEW - be careful as a lot of mini-artic units are white-van's that have had a hard life and then been converted in to a tractor unit. Not this unit! It's factory converted from new in a PROPER conversion with check-plate and fiber-glass body to the rear and properly mounted mini 5th wheel coupling, electrical and air supply. Because it was converted from new and has only EVER been used to pull mini-artic exhibition unit's it's got an incredibly low mileage of just 35,000km (21,000miles) so there's minimal wear and tear with a good long life ahead of it.

Has a factory-fitted tachograph though not used (many uses for this unit don't require tacho but we thought it best to leave the unit in to keep our options open).

We've just had a new exhaust, battey, breaks and injectors fitted whilst the unit as a whole has had a service so it's in tip-top condition.

We typically get 12mpg towing a 3ton exhibition trailer on the back so it's very fuel efficient. We've also tried it with Bio-Diesel in the past and it runs just fine. On the open road it will cruise at 50mph happily.

Typically this can be driven on a car license (pre 1997) or a license with trailer add-on (post 1997) so basically almost anyone can drive it.

Current use doesn't require MOT (it's registered as a showmans exemption) so there's not one in place but i have no doubt it will sail thru an MOT as it's a great little vehicle and been well looked after. Depending on what you're using it for the exemption may be transferable and I'm happy to assist the winning bidder with the paperwork.

The inside of the cab is basic but in good condition, no tears or damage to any of the fabric. There's some small spots of rust on the front bonnet (every Merc I've ever seen seems to get them) which can be fixed and filled in mins, otherwise the bodywork is in great condition.

You're going to get a bargain here and we're sad to see this dependable little unit go so BID NOW I've seen these units advertised for well over £10k and they're worth every penny!

Please note, you're bidding to BUY not to come and look and change your mind. Winning bidder must pay a £500 deposit within 24hrs of winning and BEFORE coming to collect the unit. Unit is sold as-seen so please ask any questions BEFORE you bid so that you're happy it is exactly what you're expecting. E&OE

VAT to be added to the final sale price and a full VAT invoice will be issued.
