After successfully introducing the new PowerBully models in Europe and the United States, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG is now achieving the next milestone in the area of tracked utility vehicles: Series production of the new PowerBully models began last fall at the factory in Laupheim, Germany.
PowerBully is expanding its existing product range with two new series that cover payloads from 7.5 to 13 metric tons. The new additions to the portfolio are the PowerBully 9D (payload: 7.5 metric tons) and PowerBully 12D (payload: 11.5 metric tons) tracked dumpers, with which PowerBully is opening up new use cases in the construction industry. As before, the new models in the chassis variant are available without a dump body (payload: nine or 13.2 metric tons) and serve as mobile platforms for attachments and superstructures such as cranes, lifting platforms and special equipment.
PowerBully tracked vehicles have a minimum ground pressure of less than 200 grams per square-centimeter, which makes it possible to drive on soil with a low bearing capacity. The high traction of the machines ensures the PowerBully keeps moving forward where conventional machines reach their limits. The wading depth of nearly five feet makes work near shorelines and in flooded areas possible.
The outstanding off-road characteristics open a wide range of potential application areas for PowerBully. The tracked vehicles are used in the construction industry and the power supply sector. Due to the rising number of floods and landslides resulting from extreme weather events, PowerBully is increasingly also being used in fire and disaster control, for example, for the transportation of relief supplies.
