Mowing, trimming, suctioning – all in one pass.
A Unimog U 530 is the ideal vehicle for maintaining Switzerland's national highways – whether mowing the verges in summer or snow-clearing in winter.
„Mower train“ for 1,000 football fields.
280 kilometres of roads in eastern Switzerland are the responsibility of the National Highways Region VI maintenance department (known as "GEVI") based in St. Gallen. Among the challenging tasks the department faces, alongside keeping the roads operational in winter, is maintaining the verges and embankments in the summer months. The roadside verges and central reservations equate to an area larger than 1,000 football fields in total – a huge job, which requires specialist vehicles.
Ljubo Besevic is GEVI's head of Operations/Support, responsible for general operations, the related IT support, and procurement of the necessary vehicles and machinery. The department has just recently invested in a state-of-the-art vehicle to further enhance its grass care services in future: a Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 530 with a Mulag verge mower, a powerful embankment mower, and a 28 cubic metre capacity trailer to transport the cuttings, likewise made by Unimog ExpertPartner Mulag.
