Features & Benefits

DRESSTA SB-30M EXTRA the strong, efficient, dependable – designed for the unique demands of the pipeline industry is the smallest Pipelayer in the company’s range.

Dressta pipelayers employ hydraulically controlled counterweights which swing horizontally, ensuring maximum machine stability and improved visibility for the operator. Four identical counterweight segments allow for fast installation and reinstallation, so transportation is a quick and streamlined process.

Furthermore, these counterweights are all designed to be a minimum overall width, removing any difficulty when manoeuvring, transporting or shipping. The high mounting location of counterweights on Dressta pipelayers always provide good ground clearance, even when the counterweights are extended for optimum load capacity.

Both the standard and optional lengths of these pipelayers’ booms are built to be used in all weather, and in even the most challenging environments. Rugged and durable, they are built with fully welded box-sections, and made from the highest quality steel.

Hook and boom loads with free-fall can easily be actuated, simply by disengaging the jaw clutch and moving the controls into the brake/off position. In the unlikely case of engine failure, a suspended load can be lowered safely and securely to the ground.

Our pipelayers’ design means that components are arranged for easy accessibility, and can be removed as single units – making repairs or replacements efficient and simple, and keeping operating costs low.

Grouped service points and easy access to service places make routine checks fast and convenient. In addition, our diagnostic connectors enable fast troubleshooting of any hydraulic drive train problems.
