New Winch ropes

20 August 2014

“We always strive with our PistenBully to give our customers the best technology that is available on the market”, says Raimund Mayer, Head of Service at Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG. That's why the development team of the PistenBully manufacturer from Laupheim works continually on refinement, research and extensive testing. The resulting high standards are easily met by the PistenBully BS909SQ winch rope newly developed by the experts at Teufelberger Seil Ges.m.b.H. The new PistenBully BS909SQ winch ropes are available as of now for all replacement purchases.

“We have very deliberately chosen to change the rope and the supplier, because the new PistenBully BS909SQ winch rope from Teufelberger is superior in many ways to the previous PWtrac® rope used in the PistenBully winch”, adds Raimund Mayer. Both ropes were designed for the winch in collaboration with Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG. Other ropes available on the market were developed without the input of the Laupheim experts. Only ropes sold by Kässbohrer are approved for PistenBully winch vehicles.

Naturally, customers who bought a new vehicle from Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG with a PWtrac® winch rope or who bought a replacement PWtrac® rope up to 2014, will enjoy the same warranty conditions and the same service as if they had bought a PistenBully 400 or 600 W with the new PistenBully BS909SQ rope. This only relates to PWtrac® ropes bought direct through the Spare Parts department. “The warranty lapses if customers are using other winch ropes and damage is caused by the rope”, confirms Raimund Mayer. “Our Spare Parts and Service teams are very experienced and are more than happy to assist you.”
