Pettibone has introduced a 74-hp engine option for its Extendo 944B telehandler, giving end users and rental operators another material handling solution to fit their needs. The 74-hp 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 after-treatment display found on the standard 944B model. Drivetrain and axles have been optimized with the 74-hp engine to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top end speed.
Delivering a maximum load capacity of 9,000 lbs., the 944B provides forward reach up to 30 ft., 3 in., and a maximum lift height of 44 ft., 4 in. 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.
