New Holland has introduced a hydraulic sideboom attachment option for pipelaying applications, initially available on crawler dozer models D85B and D95B.
New Holland's crawler dozers have Tier III FPT engines, excellent blade and track forces, as well as an easy-tilt platform for convenient access that allows daily maintenance to be done from ground level.
The new 15-foot sideboom attachment offers a lift capacity of 20,000 pounds and features a three-lever hydraulic control system that permits the operator simultaneous control of load and boom functions. It folds for ease of transportation, and two extendable counterweight segments can be easily removed for shipping. While the counterweights add maximum stability, the attachment's low and compact design promotes balance and control as well excellent visibility.
