Case Studies


Logistics giant DHL has recently acquired three Multihogs for East Midlands Airport, which is its main hub for airfreight in the UK and Ireland. DHL’s fleet of 23 aircraft operates from 8pm to 4am, so the ability to react quickly to adverse weather conditions is crucial to keep logistics on the move. The three Multihogs – one MH90 and two MX120 models, will now be on hand to clear any snow and ice from the stands and apron to minimise potential disruption to operations.

Delivered in DHL’s distinctive livery, the units are fitted with extra spotlights and heated front screen for optimum night-time operation. The front attachment on all three machines is Multihog’s 2700mm brush plough combination unit which. Rear mounted attachments on the MX120 models are 1500L de-icing tanks with a Can bus system for automatic adjustment of the flow rate, and the larger MH90 unit was delivered with a gritter attachment.
