74-hp Engine Option for Telehandler
Pettibone introduces a 74-horsepower engine option for its Extendo 944B telehandler, giving end users and rental operators another material handling solution to fit their needs.
The 74-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine features a DOC muffler and requires no diesel exhaust fluid. This simplified exhaust system is more compact and eliminates the need for the MD3 aftertreatment display found on the standard 944B model. Drivetrain and axles have been optimized with the 74-horsepower engine to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top end speed. The engine is less complex when it comes to sensors and filtration, so it simplifies routine maintenance.
Delivering a maximum load capacity of 9,000 lbs, the 944B provides forward reach up to 30' 3" and a maximum lift height of 44' 4". Single joystick, pilot operated controls allow for smooth control of all the Extendo’s boom and auxiliary hydraulics. For operation in tight areas, the 944B offers 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab steering modes.
The robust design of the Extendo features 2 wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders with innovative automatic fork and load leveling that eliminates the need for slave cylinders. To further improve load stability, the 944B offers 24° of frame sway (12° left and right of center) and is equipped with a rear axle stabilization system.
