Multihog Debuts New CL Model at IFAT
A sister product of the hugely successful CX model, the CL is a lower cost option aimed at smaller municipalities, villages and contractors who are focused on specific tasks and applications, and whose budgets are restricted. Just like the CX, attachments may be mounted on both the front and rear of the CL, and it features a 90 l load-sensing pump, which leaves plenty of room in the chassis for service and maintenance access.
The CL’s attachments are controlled via a fully proportional mini joystick, which allows very smooth and precise hydraulic control during operation. Specifically developed for weed control, urban sanitation and litter collection, the CL can also be used for on-road mowing and winter duties.
Visitors to Multihog’s IFAT stand were also able to view the CityVac, which is the newest addition to the Multihog range of attachments. An urban litter collector, the CityVac was developed in-house by the company’s innovative R&D team and is a popular choice with municipalities worldwide for urban sanitation. Featuring a 1.1 m3 collection container on the rear, the CityVac’s large fan offers superior suction with an 8,500 m3/h airflow.
From an environmental perspective, the litter collector operates at low engine speeds of 1,200 rpm (thanks to the Multihog’s hydraulic pump), which reduces fuel consumption and noise pollution. The easily accessible exhaust air filter also ensures that only clean air is expelled from the CityVac. Operators can tip directly into a skip or trailer thanks to its high tip feature, and the attachment is completely controlled via joystick within the Multihog cabin, ensuring the operator stays safe, warm and dry at all times, regardless of the weather conditions.
Multihog’s expansion across the globe over the past 12 months has been expedited by the purchase in 2017 of a new production facility in Dundalk, Ireland. The new factory is 3 times larger than its previous premises, with plenty of room for continued growth and a demonstration area adjacent to the manufacturing facility for customers. The new factory also provides larger facilities for R&D, which has always been a focus for the company, as well as more streamlined manufacturing, quality control and spare parts dispatch.
