Volvo pipelayers have evolved from the simple but brilliant idea of basing the design on an excavator chassis. The resulting machines offer best in class stability, manoeuvrability and safety.
360° swing capability from an excavator-based design delivers unprecedented flexibility in pipelaying operations.
The Volvo Load Management System allows operators to see the maximum load they can safely lift relative to the slope they are on – ensuring stability and safety.
The purpose-built cab has been designed to allow maximum visibility and operator comfort – and on the PL3005D the cab can elevate for better visibility.
