Scaip has been manufacturing pipelayer conversion packages for tractors branded The idea behind the engineering of these packages was to build safer and more user- friendly machines. Around six years ago. All SPX-Series pipelayers are built with Caterpillar Tier 3 engines. State-of-the-art hydrostatic system insures safety and reliability and is especially effi cient when working on steep grades. The same kit used in the conversion of Caterpillar, Komatsu and Fiat pipelayers is used on this machine. Safety has always been a big focus for us. Some of the safety features are our new ATP-Plus anti-tipping system, electronic boom kick-out, anti-two block and free fall. New design which makes the counterweight system easy to assemble and disassemble.
