Caterpillar PL61 Pipe Layer

At the small end of Caterpillar’s line of pipel ayers, the PL61 offers 40,000 pounds of lift capacity and features the Cat C6.6 ACERT engine. Also included are an electronically controlled hydrostatic drive system that allows for smoother turns, and the oval-track SystemOne undercarriage, designed to balance component wear and extend service life, thus reducing undercarriage costs by 35 to 70 percent. Engine components are easily accessible via a large hinged door, and opening the swing-away grill reveals the cooling package.
