We have a new edition to our PistenBully family!

Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG took over cross-country ski-trail specialists Keiteleen Latukone Oy. Having established themselves on the market over 25 years ago, Paana machines are the outright leaders in the Scandinavian cross-country ski-trail segment. Robust technology, reliability, an excellent price-performance ratio and low running and maintenance costs all argue in favour of the PistenBully Paana. With its two-stage tilling system, it prepares ski trails to meet FIS requirements in a single work cycle. At just 2.2-metres wide, the PistenBully Paana really comes into its own on narrow forest tracks or when preparing winter hiking trails.

With the founding of his car factory in 1893, Karl Heinrich Kässbohrer lays the foundation stone for an impressive success story.

Everything begins with Georg Kässbohrer. He comes from a ship building family and builds the "Ulmer Schachtel", as its deriders like to call it: a type of single-use boat for goods, passenger and troop transport on the Danube downstream to Vienna. After the trip the boats are dismantled and recycled - a return trip would be too expensive.
Georg sees no future in traditional ship building, however, and sends four of his six sons into other professions. One of these is Karl Heinrich, a master wainwright, who is interested in and enthusiastic about new modes of transport. He founds the family company in Ulm with the "Wagenfabrik Kässbohrer". The story begins.
