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.

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.

The SB-60M Extra is a high stability pipelayer featuring a powerful CUMMINS N14-C 14L engine with turbocharger and CAC. It weighs 51.1t with a low centre of gravity and enhanced slope capability. The SB-60M Extra is designed to perform in the most challenging of conditions. Ergonomic joystick control for boom and hook ensures precise, predictable load control and positioning.
