From pipe yard to trench, Volvo Pipelayers deliver a competitive edge in the most demanding conditions.
Volvo gives pipeline contractors a new lift with a revolutionary line-up of excavator-based pipelayers. The ability to convert Volvo Pipelayers from a pipelayer to a standard Volvo Excavator configuration increases versatility, ensuring full machine utilization and allowing second life application opportunities for the machine at re-sale.
Volvo pipe layers have evolved from the simple but brilliant idea of basing the design on an excavator chassis. The resulting machines offer best in class stability, maneuverability and safety.
360° swing capability from an excavator-based design delivers unprecedented flexibility in pipe laying operations. The Volvo Load Management System allows operators to see the maximum load they can safely lift relative to the slope they are on – ensuring stability and safety. The purpose-built cab has been designed to allow maximum visibility and operator comfort – and on the PL3005D the cab can elevate for better visibility. Versatile boom conversion from a pipe layer to an optional excavator digging configuration. Volvo pipelayers are available in a range of sizes with maximum tipping capacities from 51 to 68 tonnes.
