The applicable subheading for the Mercedes Unimog 404 will be 8704.31.0040 , Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for motor vehicles for the transport of goods...other, with spark-ignition internal combustion engine...G.V.W exceeding 2.5 metric tons but not exceeding 5 metric tons.. The rate of duty will be 25 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Robert DeSoucey at 212-466-5667.
