Prinoth unveils remote-controlled Raptor carrier vehicle

Prinoth Raptor 100 remote-controlled carrier vehicle.

Prinoth has extended its carrier vehicle product portfolio by launching the new Raptor 100—a powerful remote-controlled carrier vehicle.

When combined with the M450h mulcher, the Raptor 100 becomes highly versatile and can be used for a wide range of applications and areas, including mulching brushwood and branches in rough and inaccessible terrain, maintaining green spaces and forestry work, working on steep ground and at the edges of roads and paths, and working on sensitive surfaces without causing undue damage.

Also, its rugged, compact design and low weight make for quick and easy to transport to from one job site to another.

Furthermore, the machine’s clearance height, wide tracks, low ground pressure and ability to lift its mulcher to 600 mm allow it to process almost any terrain.

The width of its running gear can be adjusted between 1,200 and 1,600 mm, thus allowing the Raptor 100 to move along narrow, steep (up to 45 degree) pathways where larger vehicles often have difficulties. Also, an automatic, hydraulic, maintenance-free chain-tensioning system prevents the tracks from slipping off.

The Raptor 100 is equipped with a powerful and efficient 75 hp Deutz engine and a Cleanfix reversible fan and its hydraulic system consists of three separate systems for propulsion, working and power hydraulics.

According to Prinoth, operator safety was paramount in the engineering of this machine. So, all of its functions are integrated into an ergonomic remote control that has a range of up to 100 metres.
