EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS

Pipeline construction equipment can be required to work in varying, and often extreme, environments. Dressta’s reliable and durable machines are built to meet these unique challenges, and ensure long maintenance intervals. Our pipelayers, with their rugged box-section steel booms, are matched for severe pipelaying stresses.

SUPREME SAFETY AND STABILITY

Excellent stability and low ground pressure are some of the most notable characteristics of Dressta pipelayers. Hydraulically retracted and extended counterweights swing horizontally to ensure maximum machine stability in even the most difficult of terrains. High-strength forged steel hooks with free rotations guarantee safety during operation.

Easy and Comfortable Operation

Superior visibility-to-work-area is a key feature of our cabs – which are sealed, sound supressed and designed for maximum operator comfort at all times. Low effort controls and instrument panels display all the necessary performance data to ensure ease and efficiency during operation.

If you cannot find the model below with the appropriate engine configuration (Emission Levels: Tier 3, Tier 4 Interim, Tier 4 Final) for your region, please email us or contact your local dealer.
