The new PistenBully 100 4F consitutes a new vehicle generation. It has the most powerful engine in its class, has a patented, intuitive operating concept and features a wealth of ergonomic and technical details. The PistenBully 100 4F is a true multi-talent. The requirements were defined in multiple workshops with customers from all over the world, and PistenBully's engineers have listened to customer requests and have applied them to the development of the new vehicle concept. The PistenBully 100 4F shows the way for all future models.
Most powerful engine in its class
With an R6 engine and 253 hp (186 kW), the new PistenBully 100 4F is the most powerful in its class. Power development across the whole rev range is also market leading: the engine achieves a torque of 990 Nm at 1,500 rpm. Thanks to the Tier 4F exhaust gas technology, it is extremely eco-friendly and even prepared for EU stage 5. The vehicle can be driven at the same speed with lower revs – by 200 to 300 rpm to be precise. This saves fuel and lessens the impact on the environment. Nice for the driver: the PistenBully 100 4F is really quiet.
It is the only one in its vehicle class that can be fitted with a diesel particle filter. This means it is also ideal for indoor use. With its 4 axles, the new semi-axle technology and powerful engine, it also performs extremely well in the alpine environment. It is truly a multi-talent.
Many drivers work for many hours a day with their machine – the PistenBully. That's why Kässbohrer introduced lots of changes, both big and small, in the driver's cab, to make sure working there is always a pleasure.
The intuitive joystick permits the blade to be moved in all directions proportionally with one hand. This is literally one-hand steering: lift, lower, change the blade angle, tilt and swivel with one touch, in one movement. Not surprisingly, it is protected by patents.
The next patent in the PistenBully 100 4F relates to the workspace. The ergonomic, fully redesigned air-sprung seat with integrated armrest shows what the workplace of the future should look like. The complete unit comprising the seat, steering wheel and armrest with joystick can be adjusted individually for a perect match with any body size and arm length. The joystick is connected to the seat. That means the driver always has a firm and secure hand on the stick even when the going gets rough.
Everything at a glance and to hand
The vehicle is child's play to control using the large touchscreen display. Active vehicle parts are highlighted, giving the driver a perfect overview at a glance.
Focus on comfort
To mention just the most important points, the new cab has more head and shoulder room. The larger front and rear windows ensure perfect all-round visibility. The side windows are heated, even when they are open – a new, delightful feeling of space. The exterior mirrors are electrically adjustable, and the ramp mirror gives the driver a direct view of the tracks.
We have also optimized the frame and chassis. The new axle technology makes the PistenBully 100 4F more stable and, above all, more comfortable. The vehicle now has improved springs and damping.
The next tiller generation for increased efficiency
Efficient work: the new tiller has broader shafts, increasing its working width. This can be extended to almost 5 meters using the hydraulically operated folding finisher. In addition, drivers can now set tiller depth independently of the track setters for the first time. The contact pressure of the tiller and the track setters can also be set independently of each other.
The result: efficient and economical work taking the terrain and snow into account. And not just for nordic, but also for alpine use.
It is clear that the PistenBully 100 4F is not just a new PistenBully but is in fact the pioneer for the next generation, with an unparalleled vehicle and operating concept that will shape the future.
