Case Studies

Riegersburg Municipality

It was during a visit to the IFAT exhibition in 2014 that the mayor of Riegersburg in Austria, Manfred Reisenhofer and his municipal colleagues saw the Multihog range for the first time. Having made an excellent first impression at the show, less than 6 months later a 120HP MXC model was already delivered and operating in the Südoststeiermark district.

With the merging of five municipalities in the region at the start of 2015, Riegersburg now must maintain an extra 250 kilometres of road – making the Multihog more essential than ever in efficiently covering the growing workload. For winter service the Multihog is kitted out with a snow plough, a de-icing sprayer and a salt spreader. Following the success of its first winter in operation, the municipality also experienced the machine’s all-season use during the summer months, with a fork attachment, mulcher, sweeper and watering arm all keeping the MXC120 busy during the warmer weather.

According to Mr Reisenhofer, there were a number of reasons why the municipality settled on Multihog for their purchase: “I’ve looked at equipment from lots of different manufacturers, but the concept of the multifunctional Multihog made an exceptionally positive impression. We had very convincing demonstrations from the Multihog team, as well as support from the Pappas Group dealership, both of which influenced our decision to purchase a top of the range Multihog machine. The crucial factors for us were the quality, high payload, compact dimensions and also the impressive power of the vehicle.”

Wolfgang Sammer, the municipality’s Multihog operator, is also very happy with the new addition: “The Multihog is super, it’s more manoeuvrable than other equipment and the cabin is really comfortable. The view is good, and even during long shifts I don’t feel tired.”
