The Multihog– a centrepiece in many UK organisations winter maintenance fleet offering a tried and tested, cost-effective solution to beating the freeze.
Whether Mother Nature be kind or cruel the multi-purpose implement carrier is able to adapt, ensuring end users are not left with inactive pieces of plant during the winter window.
Throughout the milder months you would expect to find the road legal, hydraulically operated Multihog repairing roads, mowing meadows and sanitising streets, however come the cold, the innovative unit becomes equipped with an extensive range of attachments to assist winter operations.
The vehicles low centre of gravity, 4 wheel drive and compact design make it ideal for tackling areas whereby larger units simply cannot access, with it no coincidence the machines are used by many UK airport’s for head of stand clearance and local authorities for rural and urban areas as well as footways, cycleways and busways.
“At Durham, we had a requirement to replace a life-expired snow blower. By investing in the Multihog we have maximised vehicle utilisation, as the dual-use application enables us to use the equipment for road planing all year round and when required during the winter period use the Multihog for snow blowing. Attachments are easily transferred therefore offering real flexibility, and this machine without doubt has provided a cost effective solution to Durham’s aim to provide an efficient and effective service”
Mark Readman, Highways Services Manager, Durham County Council
Dubbed by many as the “Swiss army knife” of maintenance plant, the machines ability to replace fleets of single functioning equipment hasn’t gone unnoticed or unheralded with over 100 now in operation in the UK alone
“We can’t sing the praises of the Multihog enough. It has offered great flexibility and reliability for us during severe winter weather” Glen Wilson, General Manager of Terminal and Cargo Operations, East Midlands Airport.
Winter attachments for the versatile vehicle include: a High Capacity Gritter, High Capacity De-Icer Sprayer, Snow Plough, Snow Brush, Snow Plough-Brush Combination and Snow Blower, with it clear to see the number of vehicles the single unit is capable of replacing, allowing organisations to achieve maximal efficiency and achieve more with their budget.
“We were looking for something compact and manoeuvrable which could access the whole of the stand area for efficient clearance. We liked what we saw on the Multihog website and were even more impressed when we saw it in action here on site. With the rear attachments we have in effect a ‘3 in 1 machine’ at our disposal.” Airfield Operations Safety Standards and Training Manager David Charman.
Given the manufacturers and distributors “can do” philosophy, new attachments are continually being developed, further increasing the Multihog’s list of capabilities with a Suction Sweeper attachment released just last year which transforms the unit into a compact sweeper, gully cleaner and litter/leaf collector, with the attachment initially designed for heavy duty asphalt collection when carrying out highway repairs, which is testimony to the powerful performance of the attachments suction fan.
Likewise, a demountable Chemical Free Weed Control system is also now available, which is able to kill weeds purely through hot water, whilst also proving to be successful at both chewing gum and graffiti removal as well as street furniture cleansing.
