Airside Snow Clearing at Montreal Airport

Three Multihogs plus a range of attachments are proving to be a great asset for Aéroports de Montréal (ADM), where they deal with snow and ice clearance from the ramp and apron in winter and are used to keep the flowers watered in summer. One MH90 base unit and 2 MXCLP narrow chassis low profile units were chosen as a replacement for previous brands of equipment, due to their superior power output and the more comfortable conditions that they offer for operators.

When the airport management decided to look into new solutions they consulted Team Eagle Ltd, a world leading supplier of airfield solutions with a wide airport customer base across North America, and Multihog’s partner in the region. The MH90 was trialled on a lease-to-purchase basis for 3 months and was kept on. Delivery of the 2 smaller MXCLPs, which are ideal for working in and around tight and low level confines followed shortly afterwards.

The Multihogs carry out both landside and airside snow clearing in winter and are fitted with a combi snow plow & brush for efficient initial plowing and final sweeping. An Althaus watering arm is also used in conjunction with a towed tank to water the flowering hanging baskets in warmer months.

“The speed at which the Multihogs can travel from A to B is beneficial for operations,” said Sylvain Marchand, assistant director of operations at ADM. “From the drivers’ point of view the cab is ergonomic, easy to get in and out of and drivers report that it offers good comfort throughout their shift of up to 12 hours.”

Multihog has just signed up a new dealer for Quebec, Les Machineries St-Jovite of Mont-Tremblant. They join a growing network that also includes Amaco Inc., of Mississauga, Ontario, and Team Eagle Ltd.
