129 | Pipe Layer

The Pipe Layer for the safe pipe transport and professional pipe laying

The hydraulic pipe layer is designed for the transport and the laying of pipes up to 3,000 kg of weight. The pipes are picked up inside the pipe by means of a lifting arm. Therefore, also horizontal pipes can be placed very close to each other e.g. on lorries and pipes can be independently offloaded by the operator of the excavator without problem (single man operation).

The pipe layer is screwed to the quick change system of the excavator via the adaptor plate.The operation of the pipe layer is carried out by the driver of the excavator via the hydraulic power take-off system on excavator. For this two free hydraulic circuits are required. For quick picking up of pipes and exact alignment within the trench the pipe layer is equipped with a rotating cylinder enabling a horizontal rotation of the pipe by +/- 30°.

During transport the pipe is secured by a hydraulic clamping device to prevent slippage.

Specification RL 3

  • Max. safe working load 3,000 kg
  • Pipe inside diameter 300-1,000 mm
  • Weight without pushing unit approx. 590 kg

Specification RLP 3

  • Max. safe working load 3,000 kg
  • Pipe inside diameter 400-1,000 mm
  • Pushing distance 300 mm
  • Max. pushing force 8 t
  • Max. weight without pushing unit approx. 760 kg

For the laying of pipes the pipe layer can be equipped with a pipe pushing unit. During this operation the pushing cylinder pushes pipe forwards and joins with the pipe already laid (see figure).
