light-footed powerhouse

The PistenBully 800 combines experience and technology from recent years. It is the result of years of innovation with one goal in mind: producing the perfect slope.

Massive power – with surprising agility. Enormous pushing performance – at an astonishingly low speed. And this results in extreme efficiency for slope grooming.

This is because when you push a lot more snow and use only a little more fuel to do it, then it is substantially more efficient and produces less CO2.

It is clear that we support our customers in their CO2 reduction efforts with the new powerhouse. During vehicle development, we focus on alternative drive concepts and are open to the technological possibilities of the future. The PistenBully 800 is chomping at the bit: When the market is ready for hydrogen technology, it will also be ready with a hydrogen reciprocating engine.

*The PistenBully 800 is only available in EU Stage V. If you are interested - and depending on your country-specific requirements - please contact your contact person directly!

"The PistenBully 800 has an insane amount of power, which is really another real improvement. I see a big advantage in the chassis with the additional axle. The climbing ability is even better. If you stand really steeply with the winch on the slope, then it hardly scoops up. Working feels very stable and safe. And pushing onto the slope is also much smoother - due to the fact that it has such a long chain. And yet the turning ability has not decreased. You can turn just as tightly in tight spaces as with the PistenBully 600. You wouldn't think so, but it's really super!"
Richard Ladner, driver and mechanic in St. Anton since 2009, Arlberg, Austria.

Tracks of the PistenBully 800
Track for every application

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

Combination equipment 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 side-to-side support and perfect lateral tracking. Thus another must-have for the perfect slope.

Quick-mount system of the PistenBully 800
Quick-mount system

To ensure that the thrust and associated forces are transferred to the vehicle in an optimum and durable manner, a completely redimensioned thrust frame is used. Of course, the unrestricted mobility is still maintained.

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.  

The joystick in the  cockpit of the PistenBully 800.

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.  


SNOWsat snow depth measurement provides a precise overview of the snow situation in the ski area. Only if you know the snow depths everywhere on the slopes can you move snow in a targeted manner. The result: perfect slopes for your guests every day, increased productivity, enormous cost savings, careful use of resources and increased work and operational safety.

But: SNOWsat is more than just snow depth measurement. Discover all SNOWsat solutions!

Half-steering wheel

Assistance systems 


Autonomous steering assistance while cornering and automatic countersteering on side slopes simplify work for the operator. The rear implement carrier with smart, active steering assistance makes this possible in both the locked and floating positions.


Smart control of the combined implement carrier. Software enables use as a parallel implement carrier. Ensures ideal ground following of the tiller on hilly terrain and automatically adjusts the tiller depth. SlopeTracer simplifies operation and a large movement radius.

SNOWsat snow depth measurement

The high-precision snow depth measurement helps the operator detect slope areas with small amounts of snow and identify snow reserves – under, in front of and on both sides of the vehicle. This way snow can be pushed with precision and maximum quality can be achieved for the slope structure. Increases productivity while conserving resources and helping to preserve the environment.


The intelligent winch matches the driving speed to the winch rope speed. If they differ, for example, because of slip, the pulling force is adjusted automatically, so it is gentle on the winch rope.

Automatic steering support for the winch simplifiesM work for the operator – especially under difficult slope conditions.
