New Cat Pipelayers Boost Lift Capacity And Performance

January 2012, Vol. 67 No. 1

Productivity and safety are further enhanced with added mirrors that significantly expand visibility for the operator and complement the visibility afforded by a tapered hood and "notched" fuel tank. Dual brake pedals enhance machine control, especially on slopes and for turning within a tight pipeline right-of-way. Both new models also feature a durable, redesigned ladder that allows easier access/egress from the cab.

Arctic Arrangements offer an enclosed cab with single or dual pane windows, as well as arctic fluids, seals and batteries for optimal pipelayer performance in arctic conditions.
