The next-generation builds upon the speed/payload combination of the PANTHER T14R with a boost in speed of up to five percent.
"Everyone knows that bigger payloads and faster cycle times deliver more productivity and bigger profits, and at PRINOTH, we're dedicated to helping our customers get more for their investment," said Patrick Hébert, product manager for the PANTHER. "That's why we worked hard as a team to provide not only exceptional payload, but also the best payload-to-weight ratio in the industry. With this next generation, we now offer a 15 percent advantage in this critical category over our closest competitor by carrying less dead weight."
The T14R's overall architecture was redesigned to offer enhanced visibility gains, making it safer for everyone on the jobsite, while increasing the operator confidence and, in turn, productivity. Unrestricted cab views will provide safety for operators and other workers.
The new T14R also provides operators with enhanced comfort and intuitive features that make easy work during long shifts. For example, new warning systems on the enhanced in-cab display allow operators to confidently take on challenging conditions.
"We didn't just make the machine more efficient," said Alessandro Ferrari, PRINOTH CEO. "The advancements found in this new generation of PANTHER make operators more efficient as well."
PRINOTH engineers also carried out upgrades inside of the PANTHER, including a new engine and a first-of- its kind drive-direction reset. Without sacrificing power, the new generation of PANTHER vehicles is now driven by CAT's double-label engine model C7.1 EPA Tier 4 Final/EUROMOT Stage V, supporting PRINOTH's Clean Motion philosophy for sustainability.
