The Cat PL72, PL83, and PL87 pipelayers feature an integrated, all-Cat power train with differential steering and an electronically controlled hydraulic system that places total control of lifting functions into one single joystick.

The PL4809D excavator-based pipelayer can lift 90 tons and can rotate 360 degrees.

Cat PL83 pipe layer replaces the 583T and has a rated lifting capacity of 160,000 pounds, a 14-percent increase. Cat PL87 replaces both the 587T and 587R and has a rated lifting capacity of 214,000 pounds, a 6-percent boost.

New Holland extended the versatility of its crawler dozers by fitting them for pipelaying with an optional 15-foot hydraulic sideboom.

At the small end of Caterpillar’s line of pipe l yers, the PL61 offers 40,000 pounds of lift capacity and features the Cat C6.6 ACERT engine.
