Who says SLK's aren't practical?

Got a little carried away gardening and ended cutting down a small tree! Obviously I needed my most powerful car to move it round to the field so out came the SLK!



Suffice to say it had no problem dragging it round....just wonder what else I can use it for?

Check with your dealer to see if MB offers a plow attachment.

Bit of a drag.

I think you have to use the tow eye tree times before you twig how to get the best out of it.
