Pipelying Dozers For Sale

Pipelaying dozers can be found on construction sites being used to speed up the process of installing piping systems in a range of environments. And as well as featuring hydraulically powered pipe layers, this category includes machinery designed to bend piping on-site and thus simplify routing where complications might otherwise have arisen. Used pipelaying dozers can be a good investment for various contractors, as long as they boast the right features and are in a suitable condition to be put to work.

A pipelaying dozer will typically feature many of the capabilities and technical components that you would expect to find on a less specialized dozer, including a front-mounted blade for the movement of loose materials and tracks to ensure the ultimate in all-terrain performance.

Used Pipe Laying Dozer

Side-Mounted Booms

The pipelaying functionality will be achieved thanks to the addition of a side-mounted boom arm which can haul and handle piping, keeping it at whatever angle and elevation is necessary to achieve the desired placement. Using a hydraulic system, the operator can have full control over the boom arm and should also be able to manage the other elements of the equipment without being overwhelmed. The boom arm may be added as an extra, which means you should pay special attention to its condition and the nature of its attachment to the main body of the dozer.

Because a pipelaying dozer will rely upon a side-mounted boom in many cases, it will also require a counterweight to ensure that the machine remains balanced when in use. This is an important feature, and so it must be checked to ensure that it is in a serviceable state. The tracks, which provide a stable base from which the vehicle can operate, may exhibit signs of wear over time. So understanding how many hours of use a second-hand dozer has seen will let you get a better idea of what to expect.

Buyers can also select from a number of tracked pipe benders which are designed specifically to provide mobile bending capabilities to metal piping in almost any area of deployment. Built by manufacturers such as Caterpillar and powered by hydraulics or diesel, these heavy-duty pieces of equipment should be capable of accommodating different pipe gauges, with various inserts making them more versatile. Pipe benders tend to be tracked, although there are wheeled models available for those seeking small-scale or more manoeuvrable units.

Important elements to consider when choosing a used pipelaying dozer are not only the maximum payload that it can bear, but also the outreach of the boom. The ability to remove or collapse the boom for ease of transport, as well as remove the counterweight to make sure that it can be taken from site to site without incident, will be welcome in this type of plant. And such components will be easier to maintain if access to their inner workings is provided in this way. So no matter which unit you pick, you can make sure that the pipelaying dozer will pay for itself many times over.
