The Pettibone X-Series telehandler lineup has entered the 15,000-pound lifting class with the introduction of the Extendo 1544X telehandler. The manufacturer says the added load capacity is ideal for material handling tasks in highway construction, pipe yard applications, and for extended load requirements on traditional building sites.

The 1544X is powered by a 117-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final turbo diesel engine. Mounted onto a side pod, the engine offers easy accessibility to components and daily service checks, while still allowing for exceptional curbside visibility and a ground clearance of 19 inches. It is outfitted with a 30-gallon fuel tank and comes standard with foam-filled tires.

Built on Pettibone’s next-gen X-Series platform and featuring an advanced boom design, the machine offers a maximum lift height of 44 feet, a maximum forward reach of 29 feet, and a maximum load capacity of 15,000 pounds. Formed boom plates provide the boom structure with greater strength while reducing weight. The design also minimizes boom deflection for better control and accuracy when placing loads.

Also standard on the machine is X-Command, a Pettibone telematics program that offers real-time access to machine data.
