Our statement: 
The cleanest and quietest

The new PistenBully 600 E+: Making the impossible possible. 
Plenty of power. Less exhaust fumes and noise. Minimal operating costs. What seems impossible in combination becomes reality with the PistenBully 600 E+: It is the cleanest and quietest snow groomer on the market. Kässbohrer is thus taking another step in the right direction: The PistenBully 600 E+ is and remains a pioneer on the road to professional and at the same time sustainable slope preparation.

Highlights
PistenBully 600 E+ Seitenansicht
Chains of the PistenBully 600 E+ for every application.
Tracks for every application

As flexible as a Swiss army knife, our undercarriage in combination with the chain can be adjusted to all customer requirements and thus offers the perfect solution for every application, regardless of what is important: pushing, climbing ability, turning ability, winch use, transport or heavy additional equipment.

Rear implement carrier

The combination equipment carrier is the "one for all" solution. Thanks to the SlopeTracer, it can follow the slope in parallel or slope contour mode. The Autotracer provides additional sie-too-side support and perfect lateral tracking. Thus another must-have for the perfect slope.

The quick-change system of the PistenBully 600 E+. 
Quick-mount system

Packed with stronger cylinders, load check valves and hydraulic pipe protection, the new quick-mount system enables the highest attachment torques required for snow gun transport or pipe cutter tools. Of course, the unrestricted mobility is still maintained.

The 12-way blade of the PistenBully 600 E+.
12-way blade

With a working width of up to 5.2 m and an integrated snow gun mount, the 12-way blade offers exactly what is expected of it: nimbleness, stability, flexibility and precise preparation for a perfect slope.

Driver's cab of the PistenBully 600 E+
Driver's cab

The driver is the center of attention. Our cab puts this guiding principle into practice with comfort, ergonomics and intuitive operation. Thanks to generous window glass, perfect arrangement and ideal illumination, visibility is excepational, especially at night.

PistenBully 600 E+ Cockpit

Joystick

Ergonomic and freely movable in all directions. For intuitive control. The joystick's four axes allow four simultaneous movements of the blade. And proportional control of the attachments. All with just one hand.
 

The high-quality interior trim of the cockpit of the PistenBully 600 E+.
Interior

High quality and easy to clean interior trim. New floor assembly. Both with innovative thermal insulation and significantly improved soundproofing, making the PistenBully 600 quieter than ever before. Optimized ventilation in the center console ensures a perfect interior climate - with comfort automatic air conditioning for the first time on request, plus plenty of space and freedom of movement.

The control unit of the cockpit of the PistenBully 600 E+.
Control unit

For a steady hand and safe handling in every driving situation: driver's seat, armrest and joystick are firmly connected. An ergonomic and comfortable unit. Individually adjustable to the driver. Enables fatigue-free operation, even when driving in rough terrain.

Diesel-electric drive
 

High energy efficiency and energy recuperation
The steady-state operation of the diesel engine in the optimum speed range makes it extremely efficient, economical and 20% quieter. When grooming uphill, the engine drives the generators with traction motors and the hydraulic pumps via the transfer case. Intelligent energy management ensures that during downhill travel the electric motors act as generators and support the engine in driving the hydraulic pumps via the transfer case. This reduces the load on the engine and thus significantly reduces fuel consumption.

Optimum operating point
In the PistenBully 600 E+, the driver specifies the desired travel speed with the accelerator pedal The intelligent vehicle control system uses this information to calculate the best possible operating point depending on slope gradient, travel speed and tilling power, at which the diesel engine provides the required power in a way that optimizes fuel consumption. This means that the vehicle is always driven at the lowest possible engine speed with high capacity utilization. Such a driving strategy is only possible with the PistenBully 600 E+.

Maximum power development at low engine speeds
The electric drive not only has excellent efficiency, but also guarantees constant high torque. Power is therefore available immediately and even at low engine speeds, giving the PistenBully 600 E+ a completely new driving experience with up to 16% more thrust from a standstill.

The best of two systems: Our diesel-electric drive
The world's only snow groomer with diesel-electric drive meets EU Stage V and impresses with its performance, economy and environmental friendliness. The high efficiency reduces fuel consumption by another 20% compared to the PistenBully 600 Polar! This also reduces CO2 emissions by 20%. And less fuel use means longer range.

Una pista recién preparada.

Assistance systems

AutoTracer
AutoTracer

Rear implement carrier with intelligent, active steering assistance. Possible in both rigid position (fixed) and floating position (relieved). When activated the tiller follows the PistenBully in the same curve radius.. Automatic countersteering on side slopes. For automatic support and assistance for the driver!

SlopeTracer
SlopeTracer

Intelligent control of the rear equipment carrier. Can be used like a parallel tool carrier via software. Ensures perfect ground adaptation of the tiller in undulating terrain and automatically adjusts the tilling depth to remain constant at all times Simplifies operation and enables very large movement radii.
