Demo Day in Edmonton

Nov. 24, 2014, Edmonton – Part of Italian-based FAE Group with over 25 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of attachments and carriers, PrimeTech specializes in self-propelled, tracked carriers for forestry, agricultural and construction applications.

On October 17th the Canadian branch, PrimeTech Shredding Equipment in cooperation with the local dealer hosted a demo day in Spruce Grove near Edmonton, AB. The schedule for the day included a tour of the company's new distribution, parts, and support center and, as main course, a field demonstration of four different models of the PT series.

The PT-175 is a forestry mulching machine for light and medium duty applications, equipped with a Cummins QSB4.5, 4.5 L turbocharged and after-cooled engine, with four in-line cylinders and 160 HP. This carrier was equipped with a mulching head FAE 140/U, ideal for cutting seismic lines, vegetation management, and lighter land clearing applications.

The PT-300 is a medium-sized tracked carrier with very low ground pressure that is powered by a John Deere 6068HF485, 6.8 L turbocharged and after-cooled engine with 6 in-line cylinders and 275 HP. Two PT-300 units were on display during the Demo Day – one was equipped with a mulching head and one was equipped with a subsoiler head.

The PT-600: a tracked carrier designed for the hardest and toughest jobs out there, equipped with a Cummins QSX15 turbocharged in line 6 cylinder diesel engine producing 600 HP. The PT-600 was demoed with a mulching head FAE 500/U with rock drum.

Hands-on demonstrations allowed dealers and customers to operate all these units on site and experience the features, benefits and productivity of these four models.

"The good response in terms of attendance has been seen as a great result in one of the most competitive areas in Canada for the mulching business," says Andreas Lambacher, PrimeTech Sales Director. "Customers had the chance not only to see and try our machines, but they also could discuss different matters with us and with our local dealers. Days like this are very important because they create a closer relation with our customers and let them understand that PrimeTech is present on the territory with a reliable sales and aftersales network."

Riccardo Camatta, General & Sales Manager of the Canadian branch was enthusiastic about the results as well. "It was awesome to have our dealers and customers together for one day. They were all excited about the PrimeTech machines, in particular about the new, redesigned PT-300 and PT-175, and very impressed with the power and productivity of the PT-600."
