Pipe lifting & handling equipment

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) announces the release of the 71H pipelayer. With the support of Caterpillar and the engineering expertise of Vanguard Equipment Inc., the challenge was met to create a utility-capacity pipelayer in the Tier 4 Interim/EU Stage IIIB class, designed for lifting 60,000 pounds.

Offering stability with a 90-ton lifting capacity, the PL4809D features Volvo patented 360 degree swing capability for handling large, heavy pipes with ease. The PL4809D’s excavator-based design also allows the machine to be converted into a high-performance excavator, simply by swapping the pipelayer boom for the excavator boom included in the optional digging kit. Hydraulics are optimized for both pipelayer and excavator applications as standard. Service and maintenance have never been easier with more than 80 percent of parts in common with other Volvo excavators.

With a Yeti automated HDPE pipe stringing trailer, the driver of the pipe truck can string pipe end-to-end without ever leaving the cab and without any outside help.

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM-Cat) now offers a purpose-built 90,000 pound pipelayer – the 72H.

The Vacuworx RC line of vacuum-lifting machine — RC10, RC12, RC16 and RC20 — operate with specially optimized vacuum pads that can lift and transport all diameters of coated and non-coated pipe.

The Kenco Pipe Lift provides an easy, safe and cost effective way to move pipe.

The new Cat Pipelayers (models PL83 and PL87) retain the basic design of their predecessors, while answering customer needs for increased lift capacity, enhanced slope capability, ease of operation, performance and transportability.

McElroy, the pipe fusion experts, recently introduced the MegaMc PolyHorse.

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM), Caterpillar’s global pipeline equipment dealer, has recently teamed with LaValley Industries and is the exclusive distributor of the DECKHAND Pipe Handling System, for use in pipeline and directional drilling construction.

The Pipe Handler easily attaches to an excavator to pick up and maneuver PE pipe on site.
