Groomers

The perfect stage for a strong performance

PistenBully at Interalpin: From pioneering technologies to pre-owned vehicles

The market leader PistenBully will have a large range on show for visitors to this year’s Interalpin: proven top models for downhill and cross-country trail grooming, technical innovations like the PistenBully EQ.2, and a large selection of fine pre-owned vehicles. New: the PistenBully 100 comes with a more powerful engine, and the PistenBully 600 W Polar offers even more reserves and greater safety than before thanks to the new 4.5-tonne winch.

Powerful performance

The stars of Interalpin 2011 are putting on an impressive show of the full potential of today’s PistenBully family. The PistenBully 600 W Polar loves a challenge in the form of steep slopes to climb and large volumes of snow to move. With the new 4.5-tonne winch, working on steep slopes is a real pleasure. Like the PistenBully 600 W Polar, the PistenBully 100 has also undergone an upgrade. It now has a more powerful engine, improved functionality, greater comfort and more attractive looks. The PistenBully 400 Park, Formatic 350 and PistenBully Paana underline the fact that Kässbohrer has the right vehicle for every need and budget. Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG is also the only oversnow vehicle engineering company to offer a navigation system for snow groomers. The groomers are delivered with SNOWsat installed ex works, while older vehicles are also easily retrofitted. The experts from SNOWsat will be in attendance at Interalpin to provide further information and answer questions.

EQ.2: the study continues

With the PistenBully EQ.1, Kässbohrer set a new benchmark for environment-friendly, sustainable and above all cost-effective working. The design study of the PistenBully 600 with a diesel-electric drive (hybrid drive) made its debut at Interalpin 2009 and was very well received there. Extensive tests have proven that the EQ.1 cuts fuel consumption by up to 25 %. That means reduced emission levels, while operating costs are also lower and the vehicle is more economical. It also means that attachments powered hydraulically to date can now be powered electrically.The hybrid drive also turns the PistenBully into a kind of mobile power plant; it generates enough energy to operate external electrical equipment, e.g. for repair work. Over the last few months, the PistenBully EQ.1 has undergone further development work, and its successor, the PistenBully EQ.2, will make its debut at Interalpin.

GreenTech for summer operations


A machine that has made its mark away from the snow will also be on show at Interalpin: The PistenBully 300 GreenTech is an all-year machine that comes into its own on steep slopes and extremely sensitive terrain. The GreenTech is an ideal vehicle for delivering silage to biogas plants, for forestry work on inaccessible terrain, for mowing and mulching work on ecologically sensitive ground, and for work on wetlands. The flexible PistenBully design permits the use of various attachments including dung spreaders, plant hole drillers, trench cutters and so on.

Pre-owned Kässbohrer vehicles: a safe choice in every price category

At Interalpin, anyone looking for a pre-owned PistenBully can check out the wide range of vehicles currently available, their condition, repair packages, prices and much else besides. The selection includes unrepaired vehicles, ready-to-use PistenBullys and fully reconditioned machines complete with warranty.

PistenBully is to be found at Interalpin in Hall 1, stand no. 103.
