PLM presents the 71H pipelayer. Caterpillar® quality without compromise. With the support of Caterpillar and the engineering expertise of Vanguard Equipment Inc., the challenge was met to create a utility-capacity pipelayer in the Tier 4 Interim/EU Stage IIIB class, designed for lifting 60,000 lb. (27 215 kg).
The Cat® C6.6 ACERT™ engine meets worldwide emission standards while providing outstanding engine performance, fuel efficiency and long-term durability. The specifications of the 71H pipelayer makes it the preferred choice for utility type tasks on a pipeline job-site that include lifting, handling and laying down pipe. The compact design of the counterweight provides maximum lift capability and optimum weight distribution. The drawbar is able to accommodate a wide range of attachments. The 71H is also ready to be outfitted for tasks such as welding.
