Meet the Pinzgauers

We get a lot of questions here at TLE concerning transportation. Our tour begins just below the summit of one of the tallest mountains on the island. But our office, where you begin, is hundreds of feet below. How do you, the guests, get to that first zip?

Meet the Pinzgauer:

One of our Pinzgauers

Officially known as the Pinzgauer High-Mobility All-Terrain Vehicle (it is easier just to call it a Pinzgauer). This truck can go almost anywhere. It has 6 wheel drive, a capacity of 2.5 tons, and a top speed of 62 miles per hour. These things are awesome.

Designed in Austria and manufactured in The United Kingdom since 1971, they are primarily military transport vehicles widely used in European armies. It is comparable to the U.S. Army Humvee, and although not as fast, it has a greater carrying capacity. It is still in use today by several nations including the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Austria, and several South American Nations.

Tree Limin’ Extreme has two Pinzgauers, formerly used by the Swiss Army. Our trucks were built in the 1970’s and have been refurbished since. Our pair came with storage racks in the rear, and were retrofitted with seats and seat belts.  You will be glad for the addition of seat belts when you catch a glimpse of our hills! So come on out to take a ride in our Pinzgauers, and our zipline. There is no vehicle better suited to our course.

To take a ride in a Pinzgauer, and on a zipline give us a call for reservations at 340-777-9477.

Buckle up and hold on!
