The new PowerBully 9C
Getting the job done. Anywhere.
At the Interschutz expo in Hanover, Germany, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG is presenting a new tracked off-road vehicle. The PowerBully 9C allows to bring people and equipment to areas that are hard to access. As mobile platforms for a wide range of attachments, the all-terrain tracked vehicles feature a payload of 9 metric tons (19,900 lbs) and are used in civil protection, electric utility or in the construction industry.
Powerful drive, best-in-class off-road abilities
The PowerBully 9C is equipped with a 6-cylinder Cummins engine with 235 hp and a hydrostatic drive. The rear-wheel drive provides high traction and gradeability of up to 60 percent, as well as a maximum travel speed of 14.5 km/h.
The 750 mm wide endless rubber tracks provide a wide contact surface. The result is ultra-low ground pressure of only 0.19 kg/cm² which is much lower than 6x6 trucks. Thanks to the very low ground pressure, it is possible to drive on soils with minimal impact to the terrain. With a fording depth of 1.10 meter, the PowerBully 9C can also cross flooded areas.
The PowerBully 9C has standardized mechanical, hydraulic and electrical interfaces. Implements such as man lifts, cranes and hooklifts can be mounted easily.
Safety and comfort
The cab is ROPS/FOPS certified and has excellent panoramic view, ensuring safety during operation. The suspended cab and ergonomic layout of controls ensure a comfortable and easy operation.
PowerBully models are the only tracked off-road vehicles equipped with telemetry. The integrated fault diagnotics and additional remote diagnotics enable faster detection and elimination of faults, ensuring that the vehicles are ready for use again very quickly.
Use in civil protection
At this year’s Interschutz, Kässbohrer is presenting the PowerBully 9C for the first time as a solution for use in civil protection and disaster control. The increasing number of natural disasters is causing an enormous challenge to emergency personnel: missing access roads and destroyed infrastructure often make it almost impossible to bring needed equipment to the job site.
At the leading expo for firefighting, rescue services and civil protection, Kässbohrer teamed up with Bredenoord and Netzsch and is presenting a solution for emergency response: A special attachment with a hooklift, a mobile power generator and a rotary lobe pump. This setup represents equipment which is required on-site during natural disasters. The PowerBully 9C can be visited at the Hanover exhibition center until June 25, 2022.
