Alongside the launch of the company’s latest crawler carrier, Prinoth recently introduced a new addition to its Raptor lineup of land clearing carrier vehicles at the Bauma 2019 show.

The new Raptor 500 is powered by a 9-liter Cummins engine delivering 430 horsepower. Prinoth says the machine achieves the lowest fuel consumption among competing models and delivers all 430 hp of engine power to its attachment.

Weighing in at around 19 tons, the machine is 6-7 tons lighter than the next lightest competing model, Prinoth says.

The combination of strength and light weight allows the Raptor to chew through the most rugged of terrain while not disrupting sensitive soil due to its low ground pressure.

The Raptor 500 joins the Raptor 300, Raptor 300R, RT 400 and Raptor 800 in Prinoth’s vegetation management carrier vehicle lineup. The machine is on sale now.
