Pipemobile/Liftmobile

240T Pipemobile (l) and Liftmobile (r) designed and built to handle 252" ID pre-stressed concrete pressure pipe for the Central Arizona Project. The Liftmobile was used during the pipe manufacturing process and was designed to lift the pipe by engagement of the pipe "o"-ring groove. The Pipemobile was designed to step into and through the pipe and then to lift the pipe to the position shown. This machine was used to transport the pipe over long distance and to lay the pipe as inverted siphons. Both machines were concurrently designed and constructed within 14 months.
