Power TrainProven Cat diesel power?an innovative, efficient cooling system?and unparalleled service ease.
3408 EngineDirect-injection 3408 diesel engine is turbocharged and aftercooled to deliver plenty of power for quick response and handling big loads.
RadiatorFolded-core radiator provides efficient cooling, reduced maintenance, quick module replacement.
Torque DividerEngine and torque divider form a module, isolation mounted to the main frame.
TransmissionDesigned and built by Caterpillar.
Power ShiftCat planetary, power shift transmission permits speed and direction changes under full load, without the need to clutch, brake or decelerate.
Planetary DesignPlanetary design achieves high reduction in minimum space while spreading torque loads over multiple gears.
Long LifeLarge-diameter clutch plates and gears are continuously oil-cooled for long life.
StructuresExcellent stability and load-carrying capacity necessary on the tough jobs.
DesignMain frame consists of box-section frame welded to cast bevel gear case?designed specifically to perform in pipelayer applications.
FrameFrame utilizes integral front bumper with retrieval hitch and incorporates pipelayer frame mounts.
Counterweight BalanceCounterweight swings horizontally for good machine balance.
Counterweight DesignCounterweight has service strut for mechanically locking in extended position; pin to lock in retracted position for shipping.
UndercarriageCaterpillar’s elevated sprocket undercarriage with bogie system sets the standard in traction, durability and ride.
DesignBogie system undercarriage envelopes terrain irregularities for improved ride and traction.
Stable TrackLong, wide track footprint provides a large, very stable working base.
Roller FrameNon-oscillating roller frame rigidly tied to main frame for greater stability in pipelaying applications.
MaintenanceBogie cartridge pins and track are sealed and lubricated, reducing maintenance time and wear, resulting in longer, less expensive operation.
Extended LifeFinal drives, steering clutches and brakes relieved of all vertical ground contact shock loads, and roller frame alignment loads - extend power train component life.
Operator’s StationComfort and convenience are designed into the control station for a fully productive operator.
LayoutUncluttered compartment provides easy access and excellent visibility to boom, winches and work area.
SeatCompletely adjustable suspension seat makes day-long operation comfortable.
ControlsSelf-centering type controls for drawworks automatically return to “HOLD” (brake on position) whenever the controls are released.
Steering LeversSeparate hand steering levers and brake pedals provide precise machine control.
Lever DesignSingle-lever transmission control and accelerator pedal are designed for easy operation.
PipelayerHydrostatic drawworks provide speed capability that exceeds conventional mechanical drawworks.
DesignTwo independent, hydraulically driven motors power boom and hook drawworks.
Speed RangesSpeed ranges matched to those of gear-driven drawworks for side-by-side operation.
BrakesOil-disc brakes provide smooth operation - positively retain hook and boom positions.
Common PartsHigh parts commonality between hook and boom winch assemblies.
Modular DesignModular design for fast replacement, easy field service and pretesting before installation.
RuggedDesigned to function well in arctic environment.

Cold Weather PackageCaterpillar offers an artic package for cold weather operation for the 589 Pipelayer.
PurposeTo provide peak performance and reliability in extreme cold weather, Caterpillar offers a cold weather package and options for their pipelayers.
Included EquipmentCold weather package includes:
- Reversible fan, manual
- Lubricants are synthetic for better performance
- Heater, fuel
- Batteries, two additional cold weather batteries
- Cold weather seals in the final drives, rollers, idlers and bogies
- Disconnect key for electrical systems in on a lanyard to prevent key loss
- Precleaner is placed under the hood to avoid snow particles
Optional EquipmentOptions available for cold weather:
Flexxaire Fan System replaces the reversible fan and adjusts pitch and air flow according to engine coolant temperature. In extremely cold weather, the fan will remain at zero pitch and act as a dam, providing a cost effective alternative to shutters. The operator can reverse the fan pitch and airflow at any time simply by pressing a button in the cab.
Coolant heater, espar with separate fuel tank. Diesel fuel-fired heater D24W, warms coolant for easier starts and helps maintain proper operation temperature in extremely cold climates.
Precleaner, Turbine. Non-compression type precleaner ejects dirt and snow before it enters the engine or dust ejector on machines so equipped. This precleaner replaces the under-the-hood precleaner.
