CAROL STREAM, ILL, [October 28, 2008]: New Holland™s Crawler Dozers already impress through their powerful and fuel efficient Tier III FPT engine, excellent blade and track forces as well as maximum ground clearance and stability. Now these reliable machines further expand their versatility as New Holland adds an optional sideboom attachment for pipelaying applications.
With the introduction of the new, hydraulic sideboom option, initially available on models D85B and D95B, New Holland provides contractors with the flexibility they need to meet the growing demand for pipeline construction across North America.
The attachment offers a lift capacity of 20,000 lbs. and features a three lever hydraulic control system which permits the operator simultaneous control of load and boom functions. This easy-to-operate system greatly reduces training time and increases operator safety.
The 15 foot sideboom conveniently folds for ease of transportation, and two extendable counterweight segments, each 1,120 lbs, can be easily removed for shipping. While the counterweights add maximum stability, the attachment™s low and compact design guarantees optimum balance and control as well excellent visibility, so the operator can concentrate on the job at hand.
