Designed with Volvo excavators and modern lifting technology in mind, Volvo Construction Equipment’s five pipelaying models – the PL4611C, PL4608C, PL2904C, PL7015C and PL2102C – feature side-based booms and lift capacities from 20 to 150 metric tons. Each provides 360-degree swing with full lifting performance and functionality at all radius positions. The Load Management System allows the operator to determine what can be picked up depending on the angle of the boom, the cab’s position relative to the tracks and the incline on which the machine is operating. The largest Volvo pipelayer model, the PL7015C, has a 150-metric-ton maximum tipping lift capacity. The boom, body and roller frames provide structural integrity to manage these higher loads.
