A clever tool with a big impact for even bigger products
Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG in Laupheim near Ulm manufactures special vehicles for use on difficult terrain. Having evolved in 1994 out of the off-road vehicle product area at the former Karl Kässbohrer Fahrzeugwerke GmbH, the company is world market leader in vehicles for ski slope and cross-country ski trail maintenance, for fun park construction and steep slope preparation. In September 2014 the 20,000th “Pisten-Bully” model worldwide was delivered. In short: Wherever there is snow and skiing, the red powerhouses come into use. Even in the Antarctic, where none of the nations involved in research there works without appropriate research vehicles. Meanwhile even these powerful machines cannot manage without tailored navigation and snow depth measurement systems. Under the brand name SNOWsat, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG therefore develops and sells its own ski slope and fleet management system. Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG’s product range also includes special vehicles for beach cleaning or farming, for example for bringing silage into biogas plants, for use with peat, or for mowing and mulching on difficult ground.
