Multihog expands its hire fleet

Published:  01 July, 2013

Multihog UK has made a significant step into the hire market with the addition of several MH90 machines into the hire fleet.

The move directly follows the launch of the ‘Hire a Hog'[1] campaign which signals the company's stride into making more flexible financial options available.

Company Director Nick Carter explained: ‘Historically with the success of Multihog sales in the UK hire wasn't made something we focussed on. However, we understand that every organisation has different financial needs, which is why we have adjusted our position in order to provide the most flexible financial solutions that can be tailored to the customer's requirements.'

The shift now allows for long and short-term hire of the Multihog MH90 base unit with a diverse range of bespoke attachments at very competitive rates with the option of an operator too, if required.

The move comes on the same day as news of the Multihog's trial with Hampshire County Council for tackling potholes was reported as achieving repair levels of up to 200m within 2 hours by a local newspaper[2]. Likewise another Local Authority recently recorded reaching outstanding savings of around 50% per square meter by utilising the Multihog as the solution for permanent road repairs.[3]

Nick added: ‘I must say I feel that this has come at the right time for us and our clients. Councils in particular are feeling the pinch and after the bad winter we have had across the UK potholes are a growing problem. I'm confident that our new approach to hire should help to give Local Authorities more control over the problem by utilising the Multihog in the repair process.
