Cat Pipelayer PL83/PL87 Features
A Cat C15 ACERT engine, integrated power train with differential steering and updated hydraulic system work together to provide power and improved machine maneuverability for any pipelayer application. Electro-Hydraulics offer greater response and precise control to the variable speed motors of the heavy duty winch for greater machine productivity.
Improved machine center of gravity and lengthened track-roller frame with repositioned rear idler places more track on the ground, enhancing slope capability.
The new Pipelayers offer a quieter, pressurized cab, heated/ventilated seat option and operator interface with diagnostics and electronic system monitoring. Operators can control all implements with the single joystick control. The differential steering paired with dual brake pedals enhance machine steering and control especially on slopes and within narrow operating environments.
