Key innovations for the range of Volvo pipelayers include a 360° swing capability from an excavator-based design, delivering greater maneuverability and infinite pipe placement possibilities. These machines also offer enhanced versatility, with the option of being conveniently converted from a pipelayer to an excavator.
