Baler attachment adds pipe handling ability to forklift

By adding a 60-inch-wide baler attachment to its 10,000-pound capacity telescopic rough-terrain forklift, Pettibone has created the 10032 telehandler designed specifically for pipe handling applications. Now pipe yards and drilling companies can take advantage of the maneuverability and telescopic reach of the Extendo Series while efficiently handling pipe up to 20 inches in diameter. Maximum lift height of the machine is 32 feet, 6 inches. The 10032 will take 8,000 pounds up to its maximum lift height and 3,000 pounds to its maximum forward reach. The unit has a Cummins 110-horsepower Tier 2 turbo diesel with electronic protection and a travel speed of 20 mph.
