John Deere’s heavyweight rigid track-frame design delivers a wider stance for the industry’s lowest ground pressures and highest stability ratings. And, Deere’s oval track design allows for the winches to be mounted lower than competitive models, making the Brandt pipelayer the most stable unit on the market for a wide variety of slopes and pitches.
Brandt’s SmartLift™ Dynamic Stability Monitoring System automatically accounts for load, roll and pitch and provides real-time feedback and warnings for the operator in a tipping scenario so they can react quickly. And, the dual-path hydrostatic drive delivers safe, predictable operation so the focus is always on the lifting operation.
Counterweight lubrication is at ground-level with a centralized grease point beside the manual counterweight lock, making daily maintenance a breeze and increasing machine availability. And, all tractor service points are located on the same side, making quick work of daily checks.
Fully-proportional hydraulics and ECO Mode deliver full winch functionality and control at engine idle, resulting in less engine wear-and-tear and lower fuel consumption. A single pin-and-hook system makes counterweight installation and removal quick and easy, while our low-mount boom-side winch delivers a low angle of reeving for increased cable life.
