REGINA, Nov. 6, 2017 /CNW/ – Brandt Industries Ltd.’s strategic move into the oil and gas pipeline industry in mid-2017 is paying dividends quickly for the Regina-based company. Industry acceptance has exceeded expectations for their BLP170K and BPL220K pipelayers, available through Brandt’s network of John Deere Construction and Forestry dealerships across Western and Atlantic Canada.
“Operator feedback has been exceptional,” says Brandt Industries Vice President, Sales, Neil Marcotte. “The design innovations that we’ve built into these units are already delivering industry-best speed, lift capacity and ease of operation for our customers.”
The two new models feature a unique design that pairs the performance advantages of the John Deere 1050K dozer’s hydrostatic drive and low center-of-gravity with Brandt’s exclusive boom and winch configuration and revolutionary new SmartLiftTM Dynamic Stability Monitoring system. This exclusive configuration offers pipeline contractors unrivalled load control and operator visibility, resulting in what has quickly become the safest, best-handling and most stable machine on the market.
“Our SmartLiftTM system makes a solid platform even better and contractors are loving it,” adds Chris Semple, Brandt’s Vice President, Engineering. “We are the only manufacturer in the industry to deliver true real-time stability feedback, and, for the ultimate in operator safety, our hardwired load sensors can be supplemented with available camera and radar packages.”
Demand for the new units has been strong since Brandt began shipping production model pipelayers to pipeline contractors in early September, 2017.
