Offering stability with a 90-ton lifting capacity, the PL4809D features Volvo patented 360 degree swing capability for handling large, heavy pipes with ease. The PL4809D’s excavator-based design also allows the machine to be converted into a high-performance excavator, simply by swapping the pipelayer boom for the excavator boom included in the optional digging kit. Hydraulics are optimized for both pipelayer and excavator applications as standard. Service and maintenance have never been easier with more than 80 percent of parts in common with other Volvo excavators.
