The benefits for both animals and humans of the City Ranger 2200 are shown in the low sound emission of only 77 dB (A). Animals in the zoo react quite sensible and also differently to unaccustomed outside influences. As the famous Berlin Zoo is situated in the middle of the western city centre, even the nearby construction sites must take the animals into considerations, so of course the zoo must show a good example.
For instance: The usually fitted beacon on the Nilfisk-Outdoor utility machine is taboo, as the bright, flashing yellow light would upset the animals. Also, the colour of the two City Rangers, a soothing zoo-colour, contributes to avoid agitation in the enclosures. The green colour, pleasant for both humans and animals, commonly known as 'fir-green', could be offered by Nilfisk Outdoor Division without any problems.
Uwe Hahn saw the City Ranger 2200 for the first time at the fair "Galabau" in Nuremberg where he looked for a machine to maintain the 7.5 km of narrow pathways and the small green-areas. Thanks to it's articulated steering the City Ranger has a narrow turning radius, which particularly can be seen when mowing around tree trunks, where the manual work afterwards is reduced to a minimum.
