PrimeTech Demo Day, which is now in its fifth year, hosts trials and demonstrations in the field and therefore in totally realistic conditions that allow participants to measure the efficiency of PrimeTech vehicles. Over the two days of the event, customers and dealers from over 20 different countries were able to appreciate, first hand, the two flagship models from the range of specialist tracked carriers for forestry reclamation: the PT-300 (302 HP) with FAE 300/U-200 forestry mulcher and the PT-475 (475 HP) with the FAE SFH/PM-250 forestry tiller/rotovator. Field trials showcased the agility and manoeuvrability that are standout features on both vehicles, without forgetting the driving comfort that was greatly appreciated by those participating in the test drives.
PT-175 is the most compact and lightweight vehicle of the PT range, designed for operators already familiar with compact vehicles (such as skid-steer loaders) but who require a more powerful and productive alternative for expanding their operating options. PT-175 features the same technology and components as other models of range, though it encompasses a series of improved features and solutions that turn it into an even more advanced vehicle. PT-175 is mainly used for vegetation management, for cleaning undergrowth, cutting and eliminating bushes and shrubs and for cutting seismic lines.
PT-300 is a tracked tool-carrier designed for medium-heavy duty applications in the forestry and agricultural field. With 275 HP it rounds off the range of PrimeTech prime movers, placing itself between the more powerful PT-400 with 415 HP and the smallest model of the series, PT-200 with 180 HP. Designed to ensure an exceptionally low ground pressure of 3.10 psi the PT-300 is able to maintain excellent mobility even on swampy and extremely difficult terrain, made inaccessible by mud and snow. adjustable track shoes, of 26 inches for the STD (standard) version and 32 inches for the LGP (low ground pressure) version, ensure the vehicle a wide contact surface resulting in the lowest possible compaction to the ground for tracked vehicles of these dimensions. You only have to consider that a 132 lbs person can apply a greater pressure on the ground by a factor of up to three hundred times!
PT-600, the new top of the range model in the PrimeTech family of tracked Prime Movers is here: with maximum power and productivity, ease of handling and agility of movement, to deal effectively and safely even with super- duty applications. The heart of the PT-600 is a Cummins QSX16 turbocharged in line 6 cylinder diesel engine producing 600 hp. The hydraulic system has been specifically designed together with Bosch Rexroth, while great attention has been given to efficient intelligent cooling solutions that use absolutely zero unnecessary horsepower. To optimise weight distribution there are two different types of track options to choose from: the STD (Standard) version with 26"/660 mm track pads and a ground pressure of 6.45 psi (0.45 kg/cm2), and the LGP (Low Ground Pressure) version with 32"/800 mm track pads and the extremely low ground pressure of 5.50 psi (0.39 kg/cm2). Thanks to its PrimeTech DNA the PT-600 also inherits great attachment flexibility, allowing a choice of two different types which can be easily changed according to the type of application required: • FAE 500U forestry mulching head, available in two working widths and with various types of teeth for land clearing and site preparation operations; • FAE 500S forestry tiller, working to depths of up to 50 cm (for removal of stumps and roots and land conversion). The easy maintenance, comfort and ergonomic design complete the PT-600's exceptional technical characteristics, making it a truly irreplaceable tool: come and discover the new Prime Mover concept!
