ECOPLOW - THE INNOVATIVE SNOW PLOW SYSTEM
Hansjörg Oberhollenzer, CFO, DAVID - Facility Service GmbH (Tyrol, Austria)
"Regarding your question about how the "LITTLE ONE" performs when it comes to winter road maintenance in Tyrol, I can tell you that it is 100% up to the job compared with its competitors. In fact, it does better – for example in slushy snow conditions – than much larger vehicles in our winter road maintenance fleet. It is simply unbeatable in an urban environment. And it is the scraper bar that really surprises us. The scraper bar is a little soft, but it does its job outstandingly."
Daniel Bögershausen, service station operator in Munich
"I run two service stations in Munich that are quite far apart from each other. In 2012, I was looking for winter road maintenance vehicles for my properties. Two tractors would have been an option. But I wasn't that happy with the idea: in the summer I can't use the tractors for anything else and they take up space. A lot of online research brought me to Ronny Friedrich, who wanted to sell his first prototype. I got in touch with him and took a close look at "Smart & winter road maintenance". In 2013, after having watched videos and talked to Ronny Friedrich on the phone, I purchased the second prototype from him. The combination of car and winter road maintenance attachments was ideal for me. I myself live outside of Munich. And what could be better than having the car at home and in the morning driving to the first service station and then to the second at the normal speed of a normal car and clear the surfaces there of ice and snow. And when there is no ice and snow I can use the Smart like a normal car. It served me well all these years, I never had any problems and only once did the Smart reach its limits in the often very snowy winters in Munich.
And by the way, I bought the Smart in 2013 and I used it intensely over many winters doing its job as a road maintenance vehicle in the winter and as a car in the summer. I am a huge fan of the Smart with the Rontex Ecoplow. And in 2018 I bought a newer generation Ecoplow of course."
Mr Schwingen, Bremer Bürgersteig-Reinigung
"The Smart is the ideal winter road maintenance vehicle for clearing narrow pavements of ice and snow. Its low weight, narrow chassis and manoeuvrability make the Smart ideal for our areas.
Service and customer satisfaction is always a priority at Rontex. Our wishes are always taken into account. We look forward to continuing our working relationship!"
Jan Paul, Galabau Dessau-Ziebig (January 2020)
"As landscape gardeners, we use heavy equipment on a daily basis. That's why I could not imagine initially that a Smart could meet the tough winter road maintenance requirements. It was only once I saw the on-site presentation that the winter road maintenance Smart won me over. Now that we have bought the vehicle, we can process our customer orders much faster and to a higher quality. These features also save us significant staff costs."
Thomas Bierwagen, managing partner at Mavox Winterdienst GmbH
"Although only founded in 2016, Mavox Winterdienst GmbH has already purchased 42 winter road maintenance vehicles from Rontex. The rapid growth of Mavox was not least due to the reliability and the excellent price-performance ratio of the Rontex Smarts. We have a lot of sensitive areas to clear in the city centre, and for us total weight of the vehicle, narrow clearance width and turning radius play an important and crucial role. The Smart does all this perfectly. Over the years, we tested the Rontex hydraulic snow blade extensively and are extremely satisfied with the quality of the attachments, the way it all works and the very sophisticated principle of operation. And Rontex always delivered even larger quantities on time. We thank Rontex for the good working relationship, look forward to further joint projects and wish them continued success."
