I have recently designed and built a loading chute attachment to work with the Unimog U400 (set 8110). I have some ideas for other attachments when I will be designing and building when I have time to do this.

The loading chute idea came about from something I saw in use for loading fire wood a few weeks ago. I tracked down some photos and information online and used this as the basis for designing and building this. It runs off the rear PTO of the Unimog and attaches to one of the standard mounting points. To start with it was running using the 1:1 gear ratio from the rear PTO, this was not fast enough to force the pieces up the chute and out the top so I increased to to a 1:3 ratio using a 24 tooth driver and a 8 tooth follower, after some refining of the design and many test runs I have an end result I am happy with.
