The PL3005E rotating pipe layer is designed on a 360-degree excavator-based platform that uses a Volvo D8J Tier 4-Final engine. The PL3005E, compared with predecessor models, has a 6-percent increase in horsepower, 7-percent increase in lift capacity, and is up to 5 percent more fuel efficient. In addition, says Volvo, the PL3005E—with a 55-ton tipping capacity and designed to handle pipe in the 12-to-24-inch-diameter size—has “usability” enhancements in its load-management system, as well as refinements in its telematics, pipe-carrying, and protection systems.
