Pettibone has introduced the first model in its new generation of telehandlers, the Extendo 944B.
Powered by a Tier 4 Final, 3.8-liter Cummins QSF generating 117 horsepower, the 944B has a maximum load capacity of 9,000 pounds.
The machine has a forward reach of up to 30 feet, 3 inches and a maximum lift height of 44 feet, 4 inches. It offers 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab steering modes and has a turning radius of 12 feet, 4 inches.
Inside the cab operators will find a Parker IQAN-MD3 monitor which displays instant engine and aftertreatment diagnostics. The machine features single joystick, pilot operated controls.
New service access doors allow users to remove only the front half of the enclosure to perform daily engine and transmission fluid checks, rather than the entire cover. A battery disconnect switch is now standard and accessible from the cab. Formerly an option, a cab step has been added as a standard feature, allowing the operator to more easily climb into and out of the machine.
