PLM Features Cat® PL Series Pipelayers – Groundbreaking Emissions Technology and Improvements
Cat PL Series Pipelayers feature groundbreaking emissions technology that meets the U.S. Tier 4 Final / EU Stage V emissions reduction and CE requirements, without sacrificing engine performance.
Comparing Tier 1 to Tier 4 Final engines, there has been a 96% drop in both NOx (oxides in nitrogen) and PM (particulate matter). After-treatment has reduced HC (hydrocarbons) and CO (carbon monoxide) emissions to virtually nothing. PLM is also pleased to introduce some improvements made to the Cat® PL72, PL83, and PL87 pipelayers based on customer feedback. The changes include a load line block holder to improve rope life, boom lifting eyes that improve maneuverability and safety during boom installation and removal, and a counterweight rod holder that provides storage during transport. These updates will enhance overall performance, maintenance, safety, and comfort of the pipelayer line-up. The improvements will now be part of changes made to the machine from the factory or can be added to existing machines.
