DECKHAND® XL

Safe and versatile for main line pipe handling, outperforming all existing pipe handling methods.

  • Patented Pipe Arm design ensures that adjacent pipes are never disturbed when picking up roped pipe from a pile or stack.
  • Pipe Arm linings insure that coated pipe is NEVER damaged.
  • Upper head mounts to ANY BRAND of excavator in 60 to 75 metric ton range. (Common examples: Caterpillar 360 and 374.)
  • In-Cab Display allows operator to safely monitor and adjust all functions, pressures and volumes from within.
  • Grab arm function picks up pipe and holds it firmly to attachment.
  • Tilts 0 to 15 degrees along main beam.
  • Shifts pipe side to side up to 8.5"

Additional Features:

  • Load control system ensures pipe is never dropped, regardless of hydraulic pressure.
  • Proximity Sensors inform operator of correct positioning and clearance to initiate safe contact.
  • Optional stick-mounted camera allows operator to see in even the most difficult spaces.
  • Requires auxiliary one way flow hydraulic circuit on excavator and dedicated case drain line.
 

Easy Installation

  1. Install correct diameter pins into head unit based on brand and model of excavator.
  2. Quick couple the three auxiliary hydraulic hoses (pressure, return and dedicated case drain hoses) to the excavator's auxiliary circuit.
  3. Replace the excavator's control handles with the provided control handles. This is done by simply unscrewing the manufacturer's control handles and screwing on the DECKHAND's® control handles. Add electrical power to the unit by simply connecting to the excavator's 24 volt system and you're ready to work.
