Your Benefits

Most Versatile Machine

Most Versatile Machine

The ultimate alpine machine can be used to groom long-lasting slopes, build any type of park feature, and lay smooth trails.

Save Time and Money

Save Time and Money

Due to the combination of power and efficiency coupled with digital technologies that let the operator know the depth of snow, both time and money are saved.

Build World-Class Parks

Build World-Class Parks

Park builders throughout the world rely on the Bison X to design and prepare perfect park features in the tightest spots.

Feel the Difference.

The Bison not only has the power to climb the steepest slopes and the torque to push piles in all snow conditions, but also boasts an amazingly comfortable cab. Plus, it's the most efficient groomer in its class.

Configuration

Bison X has the most features for park and funline building that we offer. The X has twice the range of motion on the Park blade, extended tiller movement up to the vertical position, inclinometers for both vehicle and blade, and, unique to the Bison, a sideways-sliding swivel seat. Additionally, a distance measurement tool, LED lights, rearview camera, and a premium sound system, help X operators prepare and maintain park features more easily and with greater efficiency.

Extreme slopes are no problem for Prinoth’s Automatic Winch, which is reliable in all conditions and throughout varied terrain. This allows the operator to focus more on the blade and tiller helping to ensure a perfect finish. The winch pivot is located at the center of the groomer, ensuring neutral handling regardless of the pulling direction. The winch can be operated in three modes (Auto/Eco/Manual) with a maximum pulling force of up to 4.5t / 5 tn. Operators can prioritize pulling force or working speed. Due to the large radius of the drum and pulleys, less strain is put on the cable, increasing lifespan. Additionally, for ease of use, the included Roll-Out System enables the operator to easily pull out the winch cable.

The Ultimate Trailblazer

For wider or steeper snowmobile trails, there is no better vehicle than the Bison Trail Groomer. It will climb with ease while pulling either a drag or tiller no matter the snow type – from fresh powder to heavy slush. For the operator, the Bison is comfortable, powerful, and quiet. It can pull either a tiller or drag up, down, and all around the steepest, longest, or narrowest of trails. Determine the ideal configuration for your groomer based on working width of trails and operator preferences. Additionally, each trail groomer contains a brush guard that protects the cabin from branches.

For ultimate power on the trails, look no further than the Bison.

The Bison can be an excellent addition to any Nordic Center, especially one with wider trails. For perfect classic tracks, attach a Power tiller and Nordic Liner, which guarantees cross country ski trails that meet Olympic standards. Two or four track setting plates and the track tillers can be used independently. They adjust position and surface pressure depending on the requirements and condition of the trail. The Skating finisher has a smaller profile than an alpine tiller, which produces a finer, narrower corduroy finish – ideal for a smooth skating glide.

Features

Custom Interface
The customizable Prinoth Control Unit is convenient and practical. Each operator can tailor the user interface with their preferred shortcuts and vehicle settings. This means that each time they take the sticks, their relevant settings are saved with the RFID key – making the start-up process faster.

Single Touch
The 12” tilting touchscreen makes everything easy to see at night or during the day. The rearview camera display can be changed to large or small on the screen. And most important, vital details about the machine such as quick access pages, engine, tiller and winch are always visible.

Prinoth Control Unit

Precise Control
An ergonomic joystick hand rest allows for hours of smooth, comfortable operation. The improved “joystick-in-joystick” design provides precise control and allows for simultaneous blade movement, making it easier for operators to push large piles of snow and cut razor sharp edges.

Straightforward Service
The latest generation of the proven CAN-bus-controlled system, optimizes the movements of the attachments and reduces the number of tubes. This results in customizable blade movements and easier maintenance and service on the machine.

Joystick-in-Joystick

Modern, Stylish, Quiet
It’s all about the operator. The larger cabin, generous footwell with heating system, integrated sunroof and ergonomic design (including the tailored Recaro seats) create a comfortable home base for producing the perfect finish. Choose fully automated air conditioning for complete temperature control no matter what’s happening outside.

Cabin Comfort

Standard Center Seat
The standard center seat allows operators to see better whether free grooming or park building.

Unique Sliding Seat Technology
Choose the optional sideways-sliding swivel seat to move between center and left positions. The seat moves up for 500 mm which, coupled with the 15 degree turning radius, provides the operator with the best all-around view – a real advantage when building parks and pipes.

Seating Options

Ideal Power Performance
The Caterpillar C9.3B engine offers unrivaled performance. The straight-six engine produces max torque at the optimum engine speed of 1,400 rpm; meaning you have ideal power performance within the recommended running range.

Impressively Low Emissions
This machine meets the world’s highest emission standards—Euromot Stage V. In addition to diesel, it can also run on HVO, GTL or BTL without any modifications needed to the engine. This means ski resorts can stick with standard diesel or explore alternative fuels to help minimize CO2 yet further.

An exhaust treatment system with SCR catalytic converter, oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter reduces emissions to a minimum. These upgrades make the Bison the cleanest snow groomer in its class.

Power and Sustainability

The low center of gravity guarantees stability going uphill and downhill. A turning radius of zero (around its own axis) improves the agility, and the standard center seat position provides the operator with the best possible view.

Full Balance

Technical data

The Bison not only has the power to climb the steepest slopes and the torque to push piles in all snow conditions, but also boasts an amazingly comfortable cab.
