Pettibone's Extendo 944X Telehandler is powered by a 74 horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that features a DOC muffler and requires no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance of 18 inches.

With its newly designed boom, the 944X offers maximum lift capacity of 9,000 pounds, maximum forward reach of 30 feet and maximum lift height of 44 feet, 6 inches. Featuring formed boom plates, the structure offers greater strength while reducing weight. The design also minimizes boom deflection for better control and accuracy when placing loads.

Boom overlap has been nearly doubled from previous models to provide smoother operation and reduce contact forces on wear pads, thereby extending service life. Pettibone’s leading hydraulics continue to deliver exceptional controllability and overall operating feel, while enhancing efficiency and cycle speeds. Cylinder cushioning dampens the end of strokes – both extending and retracting – to avoid the wear-and-tear of hard, jarring stops. All-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks are built to resist damage.
