Liebherr Pipelaying Equipment
Iron Tractor, LLC was founded in 2009 to provide earth-moving equipment (mostly pipelayers and other pipeline construction equipment) to the pipeline industry in the United States. Over the last twelve (12) years our rental fleet has consisted of 583/572/571 Pipelayers; D7 Tractors; Tac Rigs; Portable Bending Machines; and, Weld Decks.

We introduced the Liebherr Purpose- Built Pipelayers – the RL54 & the RL64 – to the US market in 2016. For the past five (5) years we have been renting all thirty (30) units to major pipeline construction contractors in the US – working on important pipeline construction jobs from 30" to 42" in diameter all across the United States.

Liebherr Advantages
Oval Track – Better STABILITY in Mountains. Lower CENTER OF GRAVITY – primarily due to compact arrangement of travel drive components and extra-long undercarriage without disadvantages of HiDrive component location;

Hydrostatic Drive with Force-locking Transmission prevents possible runaway on inclines in mountains; also, hydrostatic drive has capability to steer even if engine fails (Once in neutral, Speed Sensors automatically lock Parking Brake in position on Final Drives);

More precise steering provides improved maneuverability in tight confines of narrow ROW – easier to stay on narrow Mat Road;

EASE of operation with Step-Less Speed Control – no need to Change Gears;

Better Control with Tie Ins with precise movements allowing for inching (rather than having to adjust RPM & Braking on other pipelayers);

Standard Cab with integrated ROPS & controlled environment allows for an operator that is more alert & less fatigued with precise and EASY CONTROL – only two (2) joysticks control all functions, which requires minimal training – especially for younger operators;

Better Visibility to most pipelayer functions in working range – in most all pipelayer applications including Bending, Lowering In & Tie-Ins with seat angled 15 Degrees to left & excellent Visibility to each/both Track(s). Also, dormer window allows visibility to boom tip – especially for passing under power lines;
Boom Cylinder – more Precise Control & More Structural Integrity & Stability to avoid boom failure (folding) in case of accident

Hydraulically-controlled Boom Free Fall (no mechanical gears) provides safe control to avoid potential tip-over in various pipelayer applications; Ownership & Operational Advantages of Liebherr RL54 & RL64 Pipelayers:

Fewer Components & Less Wear & Tear with totally hydraulic system;

Hydrostatic Drive Benefits - More Efficient with Better Fuel Economy and Less Fuel Consumption (up to 10% Savings);

More Comfortable & Safer Operator will be more Productive;

Cab provides added protection to hi-tech electronics & gauges;

Specially designed Liebherr Oils & Lubricants provide exceptionally long life & Extended Oil Change Intervals;

Tilt-Up Cab for Ease of Service with Easy Access to all Maintenance & Service Points;
All the above SAFETY, OWNERSHIP & OPERATIONAL features & benefits are possible, because Liebherr Pipelayers are Purpose-built Pipelayers. They were never designed or manufactured as a dozer – Only a Pipelayer!
