PrimeTech is part of Italian-based FAE Group having over 25 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of attachments and carriers, 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.

Introduced by Andreas Lambacher, PrimeTech Sales Director, and by Riccardo Camatta, General & Sales Manager of the Canadian branch, the schedule for the day included a tour of the company’s new distribution, parts, and support centre and, as main course, a field demonstration of 4 different models of the PT series.

The PT-175: a forestry mulching machine for light and medium duty applications, equipped with a Cummins QSB4.5, 4.5 L turbocharged and aftercooled engine, with 4 inline 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: a medium- size, very low ground pressure tracked carrier powered by a John Deere 6068HF485, 6.8 L turbocharged and after-cooled engine with 6 in-line cylinders and 275 HP. There were 2 PT-300 units available for a test-drive during the Demo Day:

One PT-300 was equipped with a mulching head FAE 300/U, a new, bigger type mulching head for the PT-300 with bigger rotor diameter for higher productivity.

The second PT-300 was equipped with a subsoiler head FAE 200/S, a head that can mill up roots and stumps as deep as 40 cm / 16 in; an ideal head for land conversion and site preparation.

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 4 models.

“The good response in terms of attendance has been seen as a great result in an area which is seen as one of the most competitive in Canada for the mulching business” says Andreas Lambacher, who points out that “Events like this strengthen even more the presence of PrimeTech here in Canada. Customers from throughout the country who attended our Demo Day 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 was also enthusiastic about the event, “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.”
