Anyone visiting Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG at this year's Interalpin will as always encounter some genuine highlights. First the latest Tier 4 final engine technology, which Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG is the first manufacturer to have implemented and sold worldwide. The PistenBully 400 ParkPro will finally be officially presented to the public. The Interalpin also provides a platform for the presentation of a world first with revolutionary features.
Tier 4 final - engine technology
One of the show highlights is also a highlight for our environment: in December 2014, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG became the first snow groomer manufacturer worldwide to introduce the new Tier 4 final exhaust standard onto the market. Since then, PistenBully with the clean engine technology have been put to daily use in their first ski resorts. The progress is impressive: 23 vehicles now produce the same level of pollutants that would have come from one vehicle alone under the Tier 1 standard.
The engineers at Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG have managed to combine ecological and economical advantages, developing a new generation of engine that is not only environmentally-friendly, but also saves resources and is cost-effective to run. You can see the possibilities that the new Tier 4 final engine technology offers using the example of the PistenBully 400 ParkPro.
PistenBully 400 ParkPro
The story behind the development of the PistenBully 400 ParkPro is unique and is an example of how Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG continually breaks new ground to set standards with innovative products. The motivation for it came from the world's best shapers and park developers – the project was realised in close collaboration with our partner Schneestern.
What makes the PistenBully 400 ParkPro different is its 100-percent orientation to park needs. The park builders were involved right from the start, as Kässbohrer sought their requests and ideas. In line with their requests and suggestions, the PistenBully 400 ParkPro was turned into reality in just 1 year – from the first market research to series production. Today it is the ultimate tool for park preparation. Although it was developed for the highest demands of the professional sector, its main area of use will be in smaller and beginner-friendly family parks and funslopes, the new trend in ski resorts.
Schneestern will also be on show at the Interalpin. The leading European snow park developer designs and realises parks at the highest level. Show visitors will, thus, have a chance to find out about the snow park theme first-hand.
With SNOWsat, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG offers a completely matured product that was specially developed for ski resorts and that has the entire knowledge base of Kässbohrer behind it. With high-quality components and the latest technologies, it is a professional solution that is optimised for the vehicle technology and equipment of a PistenBully, but also works with third-party vehicles. The extremely precise snow depth measurement and linking of snow production and slope grooming, facilitate greater efficiency in the operations of the entire vehicle fleet, leading to a reduction in overall operating costs of up to 15 %. Show visitors can experience all the facets of this system in the special showroom.
PistenBully 600 W Polar SCR
There are vehicles that set standards in their sector and take a leading role, which can be relied upon even under extreme conditions and against which the competition have to measure themselves. The PistenBully 600 W Polar SCR is one such top dog: a powerhouse and workhorse that really covers ground and does not capitulate even in the face of difficult terrain. At the Interalpin we will demonstrate what makes it the totally reliable premium machine for even the trickiest slope.
PistenBully 600 E+
The PistenBully 600 E+ is the first snow groomer worldwide with a diesel-electric drive and is now also a genuine success story. Soon after being launched, it has become a firm feature on the slopes, thanks to its impressive performance values, high cost-effectiveness and low environmental impact. With this unique combination it manages to harmonise ecological and economic interests. 20 % lower fuel consumption and 20 % lower pollutant emissions are arguments that carry weight and that no slope manager can really ignore. To say nothing of the drive and handling. The PistenBully 600 E+ has truly earned its place at the Interalpin once again this year. Anyone who hasn't met him yet, is very welcome to take a close look at the powerhouse on the Kässbohrer stand.
