Project off-road machine WOLF
Allow us to introduce our innovation in the development of off-road all-terrain vehicles â€“ the unique idea for the technical design of the WOLF and APACHE. The WOLF and APACHE offer a new conception of off-road machines designed for both professional use and entertainment. Our machines will provide our customers with an expanded product range and an alternative to the professional quad bikes on the EU market.Â
It is difficult to compare the parameters of these machines with quad bikes commonly on the market today. Our machine is not a substitute for quad bikes, and does not aim to replace them or compete with them!!! Its unique off-road machine design represents an expansion of the market by another powerful vehicle, whose technical design will make it possible to expand the segment of off-road machines to include a wide range of uses and useful qualities. An important goal of the project was to find a design for disabled citizens that would enable them to get around in open country, off the roads, as well as experience off-road riding. A great advantage over conventional quad bikes is the machineâ€™s stability and the crewâ€™s comfort. The development put an emphasis on high crew safety and extreme resilience and terrain penetrability, with a requirement for extreme stability in any situation and driving mode. The easy controls and stability outperform any quad bike or competing machine. There are also special options available.
The electric hybrid version (wheeled version and particularly for the disabled) with a battery charging system using a mini generator is a major innovation. The design will considerably increase the reach of the electric version. An important innovation for the disabled (primarily wheeled) is the use of comfort seat technology adjustments with integrated Techno gelÂ® technology, ensuring comfort for disabled users who might suffer pressure sores or other medical difficulties during longer drives in conventional seats and backrests commercially available. The disabled (with a less severe disability) will have a new option of using the machines not only for leisure but also for work such as guarding fields, inspecting extensive compounds, or delivering mail in the mountains.
One of the advantages of the Wolf hybrid machine is that it can travel inside no-car zones for combustion-engine cars. The charging system is only for recharging the batteries, not for actually driving the vehicle, and will be integrated as a mobile component. The machines can also be recharged from a conventional 220 W power supply via fast charging.
A unique design feature is the ability to use a wide range of fuels and engines from global manufacturers. The premeditated design makes servicing anywhere in the world a lot easier. The design uses 99% of the parts available on any ordinary market. The machineâ€™s technology and design significantly expands servicing capabilities and the availability of basic spare parts, so the future user is not dependent on specialised machine retailers. By using a wide range of accessories, from GPS to drones, etc., the machines can be customised to meet anyoneâ€™s needs. The machine design incorporates several unique technical solutions protected by EU patents and industrial designs.

Area of application
The area of application of the WOLF and APACHE machines is very wide, from the underlying philosophy of enabling the disabled to move off-road without restriction, to uses for hunting expeditions (particularly Canada), to use by emergency services such as mountain rescue, fire brigade and police. A separate group of useris armed forces in reconnaissance units and auxiliary cooperation with armed forces. Another important target group is users of quad bikes, for whom these machines are a welcome product range expansion. The development plans include a glazed cab for increased crew comfort and a road version. The electric version will be available in the first quarter of 2017.
