DECKHAND® XL

The DECKHAND® XL Pipe Handling System by LaValley Industries handles the largest and heaviest pipe gently and safely while outperforming all existing pipe handling methods. Extremely versatile and safe for mainline pipe handling. Requires auxiliary one-way flow hydraulic circuit on excavator and dedicated case drain line.

  • Patented pipe arm design ensures that adjacent pipes are never disturbed when picking up roped pipe from a pile or stack
  • Pipe arm linings ensure 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 cab
  • Grab arm function picks up pipe and holds it firmly to attachment
  • Tilts 0 to 15° 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
