Round Hill General Improvement District in Nevada is responsible for maintaining over 8 miles of roads and curbs, water treatment and storm water collection. It serves over 500 residential and commercial customers in Zephyr Cove, which is located on Lake Tahoe. Given its alpine location, the District is guaranteed snow each winter, and it maintains a fleet of machinery for winter service. In May 2019, local dealer Alpine Smith Inc. delivered a Multihog MH tractor to the District. Designated for winter
service, the MH is fitted with a snow blower and a winged plow.
The Multihog was chosen over many other competing machines, and Round Hill’s previous unit, a multi-purpose machine from another manufacturer, is now used as a back-up machine in the fleet. The MH was chosen for various reasons, including its power, which is essential for heavy-duty snow blowing. Round Hill also rated its
excellent visibility and the ability to add new attachments for other tasks in the future. The fact that the Multihog is so simple to operate, especially for a machine which will be used in winter service, was a key factor in the decision. The presence of a good local dealer also assured the District that after-sales care would not be an issue.
