Pipe lifting & handling equipment

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.

Caldwell’s Leveling C-Hook Pipe Lifter lets you place and position concrete pipe up to 8 feet in length in one operation.
