State-of-the-art technologies at the SAM 2012 fair
“Cost effectiveness” is PRINOTH's slogan for the SAM 2012 fair. With sustainable technologies and efficient vehicles, the sector’s leader in innovation and technology is helping to make slope preparation more cost effective by saving both time and money.
For the first time, PRINOTH is presenting its news in digital form in its customary stylish Info Lounge. Using iPad tablets, interested visitors can read all about the Clean Motion technology, about PRINOTH's consulting services, and about the efficiency of the Beast and the Bison X, in great comfort, and thus gain first impressions on which they can later expand in more extensive discussions with PRINOTH sales personnel.
Clean Motion – For clean and environmentally friendly slope preparation
Using clean technologies, Clean Motion combines ecological and economic sustainability with heightened corporate responsibility. The new Leitwolf and Husky E-motion are prime examples of exemplary developments in the direction of clean technologies. With the new Leitwolf, PRINOTH has developed the world's first slope vehicle that conforms to Euromot III B and has been first off the mark in establishing the trend towards new emission standards. Compared with similar vehicles, the new Leitwolf’s nitrogen emissions are reduced by 50 and its fine particulate emissions, by 90. For the Husky E-motion, PRINOTH has invested in alternative transmission. The first groomer for everyday use with diesel-electric drive has succeeded in increasing its efficiency and thus reduces its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions over the long-term without having to accept any reductions in performance.
Cost effectiveness that counts
PRINOTH puts its consulting expertise at the disposal of its clients and helps them save money. Cost effectiveness is decisive when procuring snow groomers, so it is all the more important that costs be estimated in advance. In addition to its purchase price, all aspects of the vehicle’s subsequent use – such as fuel, repairs and maintenance – have to be taken into consideration to identify known cost drivers as well as hidden expenses before they arise. This enables the client to be aware of the vehicle’s total costs right through to selling it off or trading it in. With its technical training for snow groomer drivers and competent after-sales service, PRINOTH offers a complete package and helps its clients exploit its innovative
technology and essential know-how to save them time and money and thereby contribute to the cost effectiveness of the ski area.
The Beast – The most efficient vehicle
The Beast is the most efficient and powerful slope vehicle in the world. In addition to its massive 527 HP, this giant is really smart and helps its users to work efficiently and to reduce costs. Even over the most difficult terrain, the vehicle’s unmatched track surface of 17.5 m² allows it to achieve the highest ground coverage of any groomer and therefore to cover a given slope area significantly faster and more cheaply than conventional vehicles. The particularly high climbing ability ensures better grip and efficient application of power in all snow conditions. Thanks to the Beast’s effective preparation speed and its enormous thrust performance, it can prepare a larger area more rapidly than other types of groomer, making it a valuable time and cost saver for ski areas and operators.
The Bison X – The agile snow park pro
Being extremely manoeuvrable, even on the steepest terrain, the Bison X masters the tightest curves and the most demanding jumps in every fun park. The "X" stands for extreme manoeuvrability, exact performance, explosive power and exclusive equipment. It is so easy and efficient to operate that difficult tasks become quite simple. The manoeuvrability of the blade and the tiller allow the creation of sophisticated shapes when shaping a park. While the working range of the blade is an exceptional 127 degrees, the tiller’s range of movement is a truly amazing 151 degrees. The joystick in joystick system allows parallel control of the vehicle’s most important functions.
