Benefits and Features

  • 18 ton (40,000 lb) lift capacity with side boom.
  • Easy transport width at 3240 mm (128 in).
  • More robust fuel system with advanced filtration to better withstand poor fuel conditions (engines equivalent to Tier 3/Stage IIIA).
  • Cold weather package provides added features for cab comfort and more reliable engine starting/performance in cold environments.
  • Meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards, or emits equivalent to Tier 3 and Stage IIIA, depending on region of sale.

  • Hystat transmission, faster steering response for superior maneuverability on the pipeline.
  • Choice of narrow or wide tracks to optimize for job site ground conditions.
  • Durability in rough terrain with Heavy Duty undercarriage.
  • Ergonomically designed right joystick places all boom, hook and counterweight function conveniently in one hand.
  • Comfortable cab with air suspension seat, ergonomic controls and excellent visibility.
  • Improved heating/ventilation/air conditioning system:
    – Better circulates heat around the operator using a canopy machine in cold weather.
    – More operator comfort with better cooling in air conditioned cab.

  • Worldwide Cat dealer network understands pipeline job site needs for outstanding support, even in remote areas.
  • Purpose-built pipelayer gives you a single source for parts and service on all components.
