Volvo makes trench work safer with new pipelayer kit

01 Dec 2020

Volvo Construction Equipment has introduced a new attachment kit that allows its 14-tonne excavators to be converted into rotating pipelayers and also improve trench safety. The pipelaying boom can be attached to the excavator’s main boom in about an hour. With a rated load of 7,300 pounds, pipes up to 20 inches in diameter can be handled. When used in tandem with Volvo excavators’ rotating superstructure, the kit gives the operator more manoeuvrability and control when placing pipe without having to reposition the tracks. It is also designed to be ready for transport within minutes. This versatility in a single machine means operators can get the job done easier, quicker, safer and at a lower cost.
