PRINOTH will be showcasing a broad lineup of tracked vehicle products for the power utility market in booth N3016 at the the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville, KY.
The company's second largest model crawler carrier, the PANTHER T16, is now available with two new track and undercarriage systems, as well as different configuration options to suit varying customer needs. Customers may choose between metal-embedded solid rubber tracks (MERT) or the traditional D-dent track system. The rubber track option allows more versatility when crossing or traveling on roads, and is gentler on shop floors when upfitting or maintaining the vehicles. The D-Dent system has proven reliability and many customers still select this configuration. The PANTHER T16 will be shown with both tracks at the show offering show goers the benefits of both systems.
One of PRINOTH’s main partners, ALTEC Industries, announced last spring that two of their biggest cranes, the AC40-152S and AC45-127S, are now available mounted on the PRINOTH PANTHER T22. This provides customers access to hard-to-reach areas and enables them to employ the unit in the aerial mode of operation with 222 ft. of working height and 1,200 lbs. of platform capacity. The quick-attach platform can be used on either the main boom, the 49-ft. telescopic jib or the 6-ft. composite reach extension. The PANTHER T22 with the AC40-152S will be on display in the PRINOTH booth.
PRINOTH will also be exhibiting the PANTHER T14R Rotating Dumper for the first time to the power utility market. The vehicle offers a speed of 8.1 mph and a payload of 29,100 lbs. It allows the continuous rotation of the upper portion of the vehicle independent from the undercarriage. The rotating separation of this vehicle allows users to work in tight, sensitive areas where other vehicles do not have access. Featuring the same large wheels/tandem suspension undercarriage design
The fourth PANTHER model on display in the PRINOTH booth will be the T12 equipped with the Terex RMX75 aerial device. The vehicle offers a payload of 25,000 lbs. and a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 55,000 lbs. PANTHER models can be fitted with many different OEMs’ model aerials with bucket heights of up to 180 ft., digger derricks with sheave height up to 120 ft. and cranes up to 90,000 lbs. of lifting capacity.
PRINOTH’s Vegetation Management Business Unit will also be on display at ICUEE. The RAPTOR 300r rubber tracked vehicle, now available in North America, serves mainly for right of way and utility maintenance. The unit has a very low ground pressure at 3.77 psi.
Visitors will also be able to see two mulching head models -- the lightweight M450e-900 entry level mulcher for 6- to 12-ton excavators, and the M450h-1900, which can be paired with a high-flow skid steer.
