Kässbohrer’s new generation of highly mobile all-terrain tracked vehicles for use in the construction industry come with a payload of over 11.5 metric tons and ultra-low ground pressure. They can transport large quantities of material or tools over ground that is muddy, soft, and hard to negotiate.

ultra-low ground pressureBU: The truck dumps transport over 11 metric tons of material to hard-to-reach job sites.

The PowerBully brand of trucks are designed for challenging jobs; all the models are equipped with a 6-cylinder Cummins engine with 235 or 285 metric HP and a hydrostatic propulsion drive. The rear-wheel drive provides for a high degree of traction and a maximum driving speed of 14.5 km/h. With a slope angle of 45°, it is even possible to drive on uneven ground and to cross trenches.

The endless rubber tracks with a width of 750 mm offer a large contact surface. This results in low ground pressure: at only 0.19 kg/cm², this is many times lower than for wheeled vehicles. This is how it is possible to drive on soil with a low bearing capacity. In addition, the low ground pressure reduces the effects on the ground to a minimum.

With a wading depth of more than 1.30 m, PowerBully can also drive through swampy or flooded areas without any difficulty. The trucks can work all year round, regardless of the weather conditions.

With a payload of 11.5 metric tons and a capacity of 8.8 m³, PowerBully transports large volumes safely and efficiently to any jobsite. The dump bed can be controlled easily while driving, using the joystick. The dump bed is also available with additional capacity and a mechanical tailgate that simplifies the unloading process.

All PowerBully cabs are ROPS and FOPS certified as a standard. Large windows, the sloped engine hood and the 360° camera system provide the operator with outstanding panoramic view. The LED working lights in the front and in the back illuminate the workplace at night or in bad weather conditions. The cab and the operator’s seat are both suspended. Together with the large running wheels, smooth rides are guaranteed, even on rough terrain and all vehicle functions can be controlled easily via the 11” touch display and the control buttons on the armrest. The PowerBully cabs are also available as wide cabs, offering maximum comfort on long working days.

Premium components and the rugged design of the track dumpers make PowerBully a durable and reliable solution for any job. Maintenance of the vehicles is simple and timesaving due to the easily accessible maintenance points. The PowerBully models are the only tracked all- terrain vehicles equipped with telemetry. This enables remote diagnosis in the event of service and thus ensures that the vehicles are ready for operation again in a short time. In addition, the position data of the vehicles can be viewed via the telemetry interface, enabling fleet management.
