The best of two systems: our diesel-electric drive
The world's first snow groomer with a diesel-electric drive impresses thanks to its performance figures, its cost-effectiveness and its low environmental impact. The high efficiency reduces fuel consumption and emissions of NOX and CO2 by 20 % in each case! In addition, 99 % fewer sooty particles are released into the environment.
Highest power development at low engine speed
The electric drive is not only highly effective, but also guarantees a consistently high torque. Thus, the power is immediate and can also be accessed at low engine speeds, which gives the PistenBully 600 E+ a completely new driving feel with unbelievable thrust from a standing start.
High energy efficiency and energy recovery on the downhill rides
The constant operation of the diesel engine in the optimum speed range makes it extremely efficient and economical. The intelligent energy management ensures that energy produced on the downhill rides flows directly back into the drive for the snow tiller. The 6-cylinder in-line engine from Mercedes-Benz has a capacity of 12.82 liters and delivers 295 kW (400 hp). It is supplemented by electric power units of two generators, drive motors and a tiller drive. The engine also as a turbocharger and intercooling with electronically controlled unit injectors.
