PRINOTH’s expertise in building technologically advanced tracked vehicles such as snow groomers has delivered the efficient and powerful line of PANTHER carriers. In 2011, after more than three years of research and development, and an array of innovations, the PANTHER platform was introduced and it continues to evolve. Presenting huge payloads, the crawler dumper vehicles are renowned as being the most productive in the industry, while the very versatile PANTHER chassis can be equipped with a multitude of specialized attachments which makes it ideal for all types of operations in electric utility, construction, oil and gas, mining, and many more industries.
In order to attract and retain the best talent, the company’s Research & Development department offers its engineers and product designers an exceptional environment where they can enjoy a corporate culture of innovation to develop breakthrough technologies for an outstanding product-line as well as customized units for very special applications.
After many innovations, PRINOTH has announced the latest issuance of several patents covering innovative features in the field of rubber tracked all-terrain vehicles:
U.S. Patent 10,384,732 protects PRINOTH’s unique undercarriage design with overlap between the support wheels and either the drive wheel or the end wheel, in addition to several other features. PRINOTH’s PANTHER vehicles offer outstanding reach in remote areas and various terrain conditions, including gravel, sand, water, rocks, steep hills, swamps or even deep mud.
U.S. Patent 10,407,112 protects a vehicle chassis with an upper portion supporting a cab and mounted onto a lower portion that extends behind the cab to support work equipment. The RAD (Rapid Attachment Design) chassis is a unique innovation that raises the bar in the industry in terms of productivity for customers in the power utility sector, and it allows them to save precious time with their equipment installation as well as lowering the overall center of gravity of the unit. Finally, this patented technical solution minimizes the total vehicle’s height to ease transportation from one jobsite to the next.
