Pettibone brings its X-Series telehandler lineup to the 15,000-lb. lifting class for the first time with the introduction of the Extendo 1544X telehandler. The added load capacity is ideal for material handling tasks and for extended load requirements on traditional building sites.
The 1544X is powered by a 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final turbo diesel engine. The 30-gal. fuel tank provides ample volume for a full day’s work at 100% load. The telehandler comes standard with foam-filled tires.
Built on Pettibone’s next-gen X-Series platform and featuring an advanced boom design, the 1544X offers a maximum lift height of 44’, a maximum forward reach of 29’ and a maximum load capacity of 15,000 lbs.
Significant boom overlap provides smoother operation and reduces the contact forces on wear pads, thereby extending service life. An external, bottom-mounted extend cylinder further reduces the load on wear pads by up to 50%.
The new Extendo 1544X comes standard with X-Command™, a Pettibone telematics program that offers real-time access to machine data.
The drivetrain and axles are optimized to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top-end speed. A pintle-hitch mount adds versatility for towing. Built for use on rough terrain, the machine offers full-time 4-wheel-drive with a limited-slip front-axle differential. Tight-steer-angle capability provides an efficient turning radius.
