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
