Small Yet Powerful – New CX Multihog at IFAT
Models of the new Multihog CX range were recently exhibited on the IFAT exhibition held in Munich from May 30 to June 3. The smallest Multihogs to date were developed specifically for municipal services and expand the existing successful MH and MX tractor series.
Chassis widths of the CX series begin at 1150 mm, for easy operation in even the narrowest environments, and all models, each with European T2 tractor approval, are fitted with a 3 point linkage plate on the front, making it easy for customers to use their existing attachments.
In addition to the 2 core models, the CX 55 and CX 75 with 55 and 75 hp Tier 4 engines respectively, 2 further variations are also available: the longer chassis of the CX 55 L allows usage of larger rear attachments, e.g. substantial tanks or grass collectors. An increased carrying capacity of 4 t instead of 3.5 t is also available with the CX 75 HD model.
Thanks to the “Plug and Play” system, a Multihog CX tractor with a basic specification aimed at operating certain attachments, can be upgraded to a more sophisticated specification at a later time – a cost effective and flexible solution for municipalities and local authorities, if further multifunctionality of this versatile equipment is required.
Other attachments were also exhibited on the stand – on the CX 75 a flail arm mower from McConnel was mounted on the front, while the CX 55 was kitted out with a rotary mower from GMR.
Originally designed for green area maintenance and weed removal, the compact CX models during test driving also performed exceptionally for other applications such as winter services and road repairs. The MX and MXC models were also exhibited with a combi snowplow and brush, a de-icer tank and a patch planer.
Multihog products could also be found on other exhibitors’ stands at the exhibition: Bucher Municipal AG showed the CX 75 with winter attachments – a snowplow and rear-mounted salt spreader. On the Trilety stand, an MXC120 with a front-mounted sweeper drew plenty of attention.
“Municipalities like the narrow design as well as the all-round capabilities of the compact machine,“ according to Multihog’s managing director Jim McAdam. “We have already delivered the first CX models and our order book is filling up very quickly, proving the suitability of the size and multifunctionality of this compact machine we and look forward to continued success with this series.”
