The new PistenBully 600 E+ is pure sustainability

The new PistenBully 600 E+ is setting standards for sustainable slope operation. Thanks to its diesel-electric drive, the green PistenBully 600 E+ combines minimum emissions with even less engine noise.

The consistent operation of the diesel engine in its optimum speed range makes the new PistenBully 600 E+ extremely efficient, economical and 20% quieter than the PistenBully 600 Polar. In uphill operation, the engine drives the generators and hydraulic pumps by means of a splitter box. Intelligent energy management ensures that in downhill operation, the electric motors function as generators and support the hydraulic pumps using the splitter box. This takes some of the burden off the engine, and fuel consumption is reduced by up to 20% as well.

ULTRA-HIGH POWER AT VERY LOW ENGINE SPEED

The electric drive operates with excellent efficiency while ensuring consistently high torque. The power is available instantly, even when the engine is running at low speed. This results in up to 16% more thrust on the slope.

CLEAN FLEET

The new PistenBully 600 E+ is based on the PistenBully 600 Polar with its Cummins X 12, the quietest and cleanest engine in its class. According to Kässbohrer this engine, along with the diesel particle filter, made the PistenBully 600 Polar the first snow groomer to meet the requirements of the EU-V emissions standard in 2018. The PistenBully 100 also has an engine that complies with the EU-V emissions level, which means that PistenBully offers one of the cleanest fleets on the market. This fleet uses resources more efficiently and is more environmentally friendly than other snow groomers. The overhauled diesel electric model is the capstone of Kässbohrer’s efforts to make its slope operations environmentally friendly: The PistenBully 600 E+ boasts a CO2 emission level that has been reduced by yet another 20%.

SUSTAINABLE ACTION MADE EASY

Sustainable action does more than just protect the environment; it also makes you feel better. A train ride is more relaxing than a trip in your car; less sugar is better for your health; an organic detergent reduces allergies. The PistenBully 600 E+ provides a similar advantage. It embodies sustainability thanks to its clean engine and reduced noise – for efficient slope grooming and a clear conscience.
