The Company - David Jordan the Sales Manager for Nilfisk in Ireland gives us some background to the new range of machinery now available on the Irish market.
Egholm Maskiner A/S arose from a burning idea that the entrepreneur Kaj Egholm just had to realize. Kaj is obsessed with an urge to create inventive, functional and simple machines, tailor-made to suit the needs of the customers. All Nilfisk-Egholm products are developed and produced in the Nilfisk-Egholm workshop. Everyone is totally committed to the job in hand - from the emergence of the idea to the finishing touches.
When using the Snow Sweeper you can remove snow falls completely and to a depth of 15 cm. It follows the terrain above kerbs and hollows and sweeps with its full working width.
With the Dozer Blade you are ready for large amounts of snow. It clears cover of snow up to 50 cm and the rubber scraping edge of the Dozer Blade is perfect for surfaces that require extra care.
The Snow V-Blade cuts through even heavy and encrusted snow with its tip of the "V" on snow up to 50 cm thick. And when it is configured as a "Y" through the hydraulic, it is excellent for snow clearing e.g. on parking areas where the snow needs to be gathered in one place.
With the Snow Blower you are ready for clearing snow up to 1 metre high. And when it is not possible to clear the snow to the side, the Snow Blower is of great help. It throws the snow across hedges and other obstacles.
