Prinoth, a leading manufacturer of tracked utility vehicles, will participate in the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) taking place early October in Louisville, Ky., as a key attraction between the 1,000 exhibitors who attend the trade show for utility professionals and construction contractors.
Prinoth has been producing tracked vehicles of all shapes and sizes for more than 65 years through all of its heritage and under umbrella companies.
In this year's show, it will display a variety of sizes and models from both its dominant crawler carrier Panther line-up and its Vegetation Management offer, which is both extensive and powerful. It also will be talking to operators and linemen who use its products to get their impressions, understand its strong suits and see what areas of improvement need attention.
The biggest crawler carrier from its line, the Panther T22 will be equipped with an Altec AC45-127S. This unit provides customers access to hard-to-reach areas through a crane with a reach of 127 ft. telescopic main boom, which can be equipped with an optional 31- or 55-ft. jib.
The Panther T22 with an AC45-127S crane offers best-in-class safety, reliability and off- road performance, according to the manufacturer. Prinoth said that its team and Altec's team worked closely together to develop the best technical solution for the power utility market. It said this type of collaboration is consistent for every endeavor Prinoth takes on to produce special request units for specific customer needs.
The brand new Prinoth Panther T7R will be shown for the first time at a tradeshow. This model, which was first introduced in the Spring of 2019, is set to redefine the standards for tracked dumper productivity and cost effectiveness.
The Panther T8 is a legacy product at Prinoth. The first of the Panther line-up remodel was first introduced in 2011. It remains one of the most versatile crawler carriers on the market and offers exceptional performance and versatility, in electric utility, mining, construction, as well as oil and gas, according to the manufacture.
The PrinothPanther T8 tracked vehicle is a versatile rubber tracked crawler carrier that fits just about any implement to its 34 in. (8.6 cm) truck-inspired chassis with little to no modification. The Panther T8 effortlessly carries up to 16,000 lb. (7,260 kg) worth of heavy equipment, materials and supplies to any work site while exerting very low ground pressure.
Finally, the Panther T12 on display at ICUEE will be equipped with a new type of equipment for this size of tracked vehicle.
ICUEE's focus this year is on vegetation management. PRINOTH Vegetation Management, which has its headquarters in the south of Germany, will be presenting a comprehensive product portfolio in the booth.
At ICUEE, Prinoth Vegetation Management will show a carrier vehicle perfect for special jobs such as mulching operations on very challenging terrain — the Raptor 300r. The undercarriage adapts perfectly to any type of ground, either swampy, uneven or steep. The extremely low ground pressure prevents it from getting stuck and sinking in soft soils up to a water depth of 47 in. (120 cm).
The rubber track also provides the advantage to cross paved roads like a wheeled carrier without damaging roads. The Raptor 300r is ideal for working on power lines maintenance jobs, pipeline or roadside maintenance and even larger land clearing jobs in swampy areas.
Prinoth launched the new Raptor 500 with 440 hp back in April 2019. Compact dimensions and the lightweight of the carrier ensure excellent maneuverability. More power with less noise emissions — the new Raptor 500 carrier vehicle is mainly used for afforestation of areas damaged by storms. With 640 hp, the Raptor 800 is excellent for heavy duty applications, according to the manufacturer.
Prinoth Vegetation Management has long been recognized for its expertise in traditional mechanical attachments, but the portfolio also includes hydraulic units. Adding to the notable line of forestry mulchers and excavator attachments is the M450s-1900. Designed for use on 80 to 150 hp (100 to 200 l/min) skid steer loader class, this compact mulching head lends itself ably to a wide range of end-uses. At ICUEE, the M450s-1900 will be mounted on a Takeuchi skid steer.
With its excavator attachments, Prinoth covers the complete range from 6 to 25 tons. The M450e-900 is the lightest excavator-mounted mulcher for 6 to 12 ton excavators. Due to the optimized weight, handling is easier. A built-in gear motor allows easy mounting on different excavators as well as a rapid change of carrier units, without having to install additional leak oil lines.
The mid-range includes the M450e-1100 mulcher for use on 12 to 18-ton excavators. The M550e-1300 is designed for excavators in the 18 to 25 ton range. The power pack ensures top shredding quality due to the counter blades and is reinforced with wear-resistant steel, even in critical points of the housing.
The S700 is designed for excavators from 6 to 12 tons (S700e) and for skid-steer loaders up to 90 hp max (S700s) with equivalent extension arm. As well as the excavator mulchers, the S700 stands out with its "plug & mulch" feature, which means an easy mounting on every vehicle without an extra drain line. The structural layout of the machine allows a highly weight optimized structure. The ICUEE visitors can compare the S700e on a special developed support transport system with the S700s mounted on a skid steer loader.
