pistenbully was born
Two years after the idea to develop a professional snow groomer, the first prototype was complete. The PistenBully PB120 B came to being. Built as a transport-vehicle, it had a front drive sprocket for a very short trial period, but it was quickly converted into a rear sprocket drive. The first PistenBully (with width 3.2 meters as PB 32.120 and with width 3.6 meters as PB 36.120) was produced until 1971.

In an competition with 21 vehicles from seven nations, PistenBully clearly emerged as the winner: PistenBully PB145D with more than 145 hp wins prizes for the best prepared slope and the best technical vehicle featuring first ever design of diesel/hydrostatic drive train.
first Nordic vehicle
PistenBully 060D is the first cross-country vehicle to hit the market in 1974/1975. Significantly lighter, narrower and more flexible than previous designs, a real innovation emerged from the experience gained with the alpine snow groomers.
world debut cable winch vehicle
In 1984, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG presents a genuine world debut. PistenBully 200DW is the first snow groomer with a self contained mounted winch on the market. With a turning radius of 360 degrees under the rope, 500 m rope length and 2.5 t traction, this vehicle offers the best functions to prepare steep slopes.
pistenbully 300/300 W
There is hardly any (older) PistenBully fan who doesn't know this vehicle! The new generation PB300 and PB 300W was the company's best known and most widely used series until the end of the 1990s.
intelligent help from above: snowsat
Following joint innovation work with our customers, SNOWsat was presented in 2011. The professional slope- and fleet management system began as a tool for snow depth measurement. SNOWsat's scope of functions has grown rapidly within a short time: Today, the system is a comprehensive digital tool, that records all data in the ski area, evaluates them and turns the slope preparation even more efficient.
