Chadwick-Baross of Maine now offers Prinoth's Panther product line, Trooper and the SW4S at all of its locations. Chadwick-Baross represents many manufacturers in the industry, meeting the needs of the heavy equipment markets from Maine to Vermont with facilities in Westbrook, Caribou and Bangor, Maine as well as Concord, N.H. and Chemlsford, Mass.

Innovation is at the heart of Prinoth's mission and vision. It strives to always go further, and to create new generations of vehicles that fit the needs, realities and eco responsibilities of each of its customers, according to the company.

The Outcome of

Years of Innovation

Prinoth's experience in building utility vehicles and other machinery such as snow groomers has translated into designing the efficient and powerful Panther carriers. According to the company, one of the unique aspects of this type of soundly engineered vehicle is the advantage of extremely low ground pressure. Prinoth vehicles offer optimal contact with the terrain, yet only gently touch the ground. This means that crews can access hard-to-reach work sites while benefiting from the smoothest ride imaginable, according to Prinoth. In the early 2000s, the ongoing quest to provide optimal performance, flexibility, reliability and safety to all trades lead to the creation of the Panther series.

In 2011, following more than three years of research and development, and a host of Prinoth-exclusive innovations, the Panther platform was rolled out with the addition of one to two new products every year and continues to this day with the latest introduction being the T14R, according to the company.

The Panther Series

Whether mud, gravel or snow, the Panther carriers are tools for extreme use in extreme environments. Due to their huge payload, these vehicles can be equipped with a multitude of specialized attachments. This makes them suited for all types of operations in electric utility, construction, oil and gas and mining. With its one or two-person cab, large deck space as well as ease of implement installation, the Panther is ready to perform without fail in all sectors, according to the company.

The Prinoth Panther can reach work sites in any terrain: water, rocks, steep hills, swamps or even deep mud, according to the company. The overall design allows the Panther to reach fording depths of up to 55 in. (139.7 cm).
