The Kohn family works with a Unimog on the island of Föhr.
“For me, it was clear that we needed an agricultural tractor,” says Heiko Kohn. Just add a trailer at the back and we’re good to go!” But what at first seemed the obvious choice for a new vehicle turned out to be less clear after all. But when Heiko Kohn, the Managing Director of HK Service in Midlum on the island of Föhr, got in touch with Unimog general distributor Land & Bau Kommunalgeräte in Rendsburg, things soon began to look different: “Anything other than a Unimog would have been an unwise choice,” Heiko Kohn concludes.
A handyman to the core.
But let's start from the very beginning: Heiko Kohn is a man of many talents. He was born on the North Sea island of Föhr, where he lived until a few years ago. He worked there on an ingenious invention: the HK grader. It is an attachable implement for maintaining and building cycle paths, hiking trails and rural track roads, roadside shoulders and park installations. The invention from the island of Föhr lends itself to any situation which requires work on water-bound pathways or surfaces.
