Celebrating a decade of the municipal vehicle

MacLean Engineering is celebrating a decade since its Municipal Vehicle (MV) was introduced.

Over the course of the last 10 years, the MacLean MV has been welcomed by customers as a four-season articulated tool carrier suitable for use in a variety of applications including sidewalk snow removal in winter through to grass and brush mowing in the warmer months.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Municipal Vehicle, and building on the success of the MV4, MacLean Engineering is introducing the new MV4.1.

The latest version of the Municipal Vehicle incorporates many new features and options designed to make the machine more adaptable in more applications and allows customers to custom tailor the machine to best suit their specific requirements. There is no need to order the MV off the rack as customers can choose from a variety of engine, driveline and axle configurations to best match the MV to their unique requirements. Each new Municipal Vehicle is built specifically for each customer.

MacLean Engineering is an Ontario-based privately owned global provider of equipment for the underground mining, municipal, environmental and industrial goods market sectors.

From the beginning, the evolution of the MacLean Municipal Vehicle has been guided by input from users of municipal vehicles from across North America.

Working closely with both customers and the MV dealer network, MacLean Engineering has developed new features and new attachments, and continues to refine the MV to improve performance, reliability, ease of operation and serviceability. The approach has resulted in steady sales growth since its inception with a large and growing population of units across Canada and the United States.

New facility

As demand for the MV has grown throughout its 10-year history, so will the vehicle’s manufacturing facility.

MacLean Engineering has announced a 14,000 square-metre expansion planned to start this fall at its manufacturing facility in Owen Sound, Ontario.

Purchased in 2007, the facility manufactures the MV and MV attachments, EKO Environmental Products and select mining products. This new expansion will increase manufacturing capacity, helping MacLean Engineering meet the growing demand for its products.
