Mobility and versatility
With an overall height of 2.45 m, a width of 2.2 m and a length of 2.6 m, the T40 is compact and therefore easy to transport. The T40 mobile weighs 600 kg and is entirely suitable for airlifting. The carriage mounting provides mobility and flexibility as it can be attached to any snow grooming equipment for transportation.
T40 mounted on dismountable transport frame with jacks
With the new design and the optional two-part carriage, the mobile machine can be easily converted to a fixed lift-mounted installation. The front section of the part carriage is removed from the snowcat blade with a few hand movements and the machine is linked up and attached directly to the lift carriage. The jacks and rear section of the carriage can then be dismantled.
T40 mounted on 1.6 m tower
These fixed installations are typically used for slope sections which are difficult to access and require large amounts of snow. The elevated position of the snow gun improves the snow output. The tower is a 1.6 m-high steel column. The mounting base is 20 cm high. Safety padding and impact protection are just as much part of the standard package as the service platform. The low weight of the system makes it easy to install.
T40 mounted on 3.5 m and 4.5 m lifts
With the fixed, lift-mounted installation, the snow gun is mounted on a steel column with an ascending and descending machine platform. This has a centering device to ease initial installation or to enable mid-air installations. The snow gun is operated by Bluetooth control or from the ground by means of an additional keyboard (optional) at eye level. Lifts are available in manual design, with HIT-TRAC 8 or as hydraulic systems. Snow guns mounted on the manual lift can be lowered for maintenance work by means of a jack-hoist mechanism. The HIT-TRAC 8 lift can be operated with the HIT-TRAC 8 motor-driven rope pulling machine. The rope runs through the pulley assembly at the top of the lift and a return pulley on the carriage, thus raising and lowering the snow gun complete with carriage. With the hydraulic lift, the snow gun is raised or lowered using an electric pump and hydraulic cylinder inside the lift column.
T40 mounted on 6 m and 10 m arms
The arm-mounted version is typically used on wide sections which receive very little snow and where wind conditions dictate that the snow gun be located on the actual slope. The snow guns are operated by Bluetooth control or by means of an additional keyboard at eye level. The optional extension of up to 2.5m allows the system to be adapted to the terrain in any given case.
