The SPX-960 is the largest model in SUPERIOR’s line of proprietary pipelayers and with a 96-ton lifting capacity. As with other SPX-Series models, our main focus on the SPX-960 is safety. From industry-standard features –such as the Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS)– to more unique ones –such as anti-tipping system and wireless anti-two block– there is a wealth of safety features that make this machine the safest pipelayer on the market, bar none. The engine, a Tier 3 Caterpillar C6.6 ACERT, provides plenty of power even on the most difficult terrains. A Tier 4 Cat C7.1 ACERT is also available depending on local regulations.
