    foldable bumper so it can go on road paver, unrealistic is that typical swiss truck will have two piece tailgate, bottom part goes down and upper swings. another unrealistic part is fuel tank, real truck has V shape to fit more volume while this is just regular. this model exist with V tank but lack some things this one has

    i made technical drawing and weight distribution of real truck

    it is due side tipping.
    most brands use single cylinder in switzerland. only one comes with two (they are worlds largest producer of tipper bodies and their every 4 and 5axle truck comes with 2, this helps while you want to overload truck due pressure on crossmembers while unloading.

    in scandinavia they put center cylinder like here even on rear tippers to gain more speed in exchange for stability.
    in italy they produce half pipe rear tipper with front cylinder...till this part it is all normal and you can see it every day..
    but it can also open sides of body and has additional cylinders on rear for side tipping....

    i will try to find photos

    Can unimog mow brush…… ? How much would one cost with mower?

    Around here people need small fields mowed and small brush around the edges . Farm tractors with rotary mowers work well in the fields but can’t handle heavy brush and small trees…..thus my dozer idea.

    Brush no, standard mower can do tree brunch etc. For tree you need same tool as you have. I have no idea on my mind who make them. There is about 3000 tools from 350 manufacturers for it. But same would fit big tractor as well, lets say 250hp+.

    As for price, basic ones are around 200k, no tools
