Company Profile

  • Snow Ploughs

    Snow clearance made easy with the unique ZAUGG snow plough technology. One of the core areas of ZAUGG’s business is the development, design and manufacture of high quality, technically advanced snow ploughs for snow clearance on all roads and footpaths as well as on airports.

    The ploughs can be easily attached to single-axle vehicles, all types of tractors, municipal and all-wheel-drive vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers, skid-steer-loaders and forklift trucks, transporters, Unimogs, trucks, wheeled loaders and air-port snow-clearance vehicles.

    They are available in no less than 14 models, each with different plough widths. The normal blade angle is 35°, although most models are also available with a 45° angle or even 55° on certain models.

    In terms of performance and operation, they are designed to cope with the demands of snow clearance today. Snow removal is remarkably easy, with great savings in fuel.

    The driver enjoys an exceptionally good overview thanks to the optimum plough height. And the Zaugg trip edge system (obstruction impact protection system) enables clearance speeds of up to 60 km/h without detriment to safety.

  • Airport Sweepers

    ZAUGG AG EGGIWIL’s high-performance snow sweepers are engineered specifically for clearing snow and ice at airports.

    These state-of-the-art specialist vehicles featuring separate propulsion and auxiliary engines keep runways and taxiways clear for take-off and landing throughout the winter maintenance period. And they let you manoeuvre easily to clean surfaces in areas that are difficult to reach, like around air bridges.

  • Monobloc Snow Blower Unit for Wheel Loaders

    ZAUGG Monobloc snow blowers for wheel loaders are an attractively-priced and efficient alternative to self-propelled snow blowers. These Monobloc units are made in 5 different sizes with widths of 2.0–3.3 m and with power outputs of 70–600 PS.

    The units are mounted to the wheel loader directly or by means of hydraulically lockable quick-mount couplings. The units are totally self-contained, that is to say all that is required is to insert the plug of the connecting cable into the operating panel (with joystick and motor control unit) in the wheel loader’s cab. This makes it possible to equip the wheel loader with other units such as a snow plough, ice scraper, snow shovel etc. in a very short time.

    By combining the wheel loader with snow-clearing units, the extended winter downtime for these building machines can be put to good use and costs saved into the bargain. The articulated steering system makes the wheel loader and Monobloc unit combination extremely manoeuvrable and allows it to be used where space is restricted.

    A chute extension is available for loading the snow onto trucks (adjustable length).All snow blowers are equipped using the tried and tested 2-stage system with overload clutches that protect the cutting reels from damage in the event of an obstacle being encountered.

    These factors, together with high efficiency, safety and practical applicability, are what make ZAUGG machines stand out from the crowd.

  • Self-Propelled Snow Blowers

    Developed on the basis of years of experience, the ZAUGG Rolba Self-propelled snow blowers range offers unbeatable quality and performance with snow clearing capacities of up to 5 000 t/h and beyond.

    High engine power, infinitely variable hydrostatic transmission and blower drives, selectable steering modes and an impressive casting distance all guarantee easy handling and efficient snow removal.

    Depending on the model, they are ideal for clearing narrow streets, mountain passes and airport service areas.
