Volvo gives oil & gas pipeline contractors a new lift with a revolutionary line of excavator based pipelayers. From the pipe yard to the trench, Volvo pipelayers deliver a competitive edge in even the most demanding conditions – not only in the oil & gas industry.
Key innovations include:
- Longer boom provides more hook height and better reach, allowing the machine to work farther from the trench
- Lift and positioning performance through 360 degrees of swing for maximum flexibility and infinit load positioning
- Boom mounted inside the track frames and close to machine center for higher lift capacity and stability, even on steep slopes
- Load-management system uses a boom-mounted light bar, in-cab monitor and warning systems to optimize safety
- Elevated cab provides wide field of vision to the entire work site, improving operator confidence, comfort, safety and effectiveness
- Extra-wide undercarriage and wide track shoes increase machine stability and floatation.Track frames are removable for easy transport
