Engineered for reliable production in the toughest conditions. The 583T's high horsepower and rugged components are designed for tough and varied working conditions. This machine offers the reliability and durability expected from Cat Pipelayers.
- Boom and hook drawworks are driven by independent hydraulic winches.
- Oil-disc brakes provide smooth operation and positive retention of boom and hook positions.
- Modular design allows fast replacement, easy field service and testing.
- High parts interchangeability between hook and boom winch assemblies.
- Infinitely variable speed controls for both boom and hook allow precise control.
- Quick drop function on hook line control allows the operator to drop the load quickly
Counterweight and Frame
- Counterweight is extended hydraulically for improved load balance and clearance.
- Counterweight segments are contoured to provide a low center of gravity and enhanced forward and right side viewing area. Segments are splined to the counterweight assembly for ease of assembly and disassembly.
Blocks and Hook
- 7.3 m (24 ft) Boom is standard equipment with large box section.
- Replaceable, boom-mount bearings.
- High tensile strength steel construction.
- Allows for smaller sections for improved visibility.
- Lighter weight for increased payload.
- Durable for long life.
- Non-oscillating roller frames for greater stability in pipelaying applications.
- The recoil system is sealed and lubricated.
Optional Rollover Protective Structure
Clear Full-Circle View
Ergonomic Work Tool Controls
Cat Comfort Series Seat
- Seat cushion reduces the pressure on the lower back and thighs while allowing unrestricted arm and leg movement.
- Seat is raised and moved to the left providing improved all around visibility.
Variable Load Line Speed Range
Engine Speed Control
Optional Enclosed Cab
Screened Side Windows
ADEM™ A4 Engine Controller
MEUI Fuel System
ATAAC and Turbocharging
Differential Steering System
- Provides enhanced side slope capability.
- Two planetary gear sets (steering and drive) make up the “dual differential,” which performs the traditional drive function (forward or reverse). Unlike competitive machines, the differential also performs a steering function with input from the steering motor.
- A third planetary gear set, the “equalizing planetary,” resides inside the transmission case. It is connected to the dual differential, which provides a maximum speed difference between the right and left final drives during a turn.
- A dedicated variable-displacement hydraulic pump.
- A bi-directional, fixed-displacement steering motor.
- Heavy-duty steering drive gears.
Planetary Power Shift Transmission
- Modulation system permits fast speed and direction changes.
- Modular transmission and differential slide into rear case for servicing ease.
- Oil-to-water cooler for maximum cooling capacity.
- Forced oil flow lubricates and cools clutch packs to provide maximum clutch life.
Drawbar vs. Speed
Elevated Final Drives
- Isolated from ground and equipment induced impact loads for extended power train life.
- Crown-shaved drive gears provide smooth, quiet, low maintenance operation.
- Splash lubrication and Duo-Cone™ Seals extend service life
Rollers and Idlers
Positive Pin Retention (PPR) Sealed and Lubricated Track
Engine Oil Filter
Water Separator and Fuel Filter
