Pettibone’s Extendo 944B is the first model in its new generation of telescopic handlers.

The Extendo 944B is powered by a 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final turbo diesel engine, featuring electronic control and protection with SCR aftertreatment. A Parker IQAN-MD3 display has been added to provide instant engine and aftertreatment diagnostics. The unit’s Dana T12000 Powershift series transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse, and is complemented by a heavy-duty transmission cooler.

Delivering a maximum load capacity of 9,000 lbs., the 944B provides forward reach up to 30 feet, 3 inches, and a maximum lift height of 44 feet, 4 inches. 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 and has a turning radius of just 12 feet 4 inches. The unit is compact enough to fit under an 8-foot doorway.

The design of the Extendo features two wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders with automatic fork and load leveling that eliminates the need for slave cylinders. The 944B offers 24 degrees of frame sway (12 degrees left and right of center) and is equipped with a rear axle stabilization system.

Service access doors allow users to remove only the front half of the enclosure to perform daily engine and transmission fluid checks, rather than the entire cover. A battery disconnect switch is now standard and accessible from the cab. Formerly an option, a cab step has been added as a standard feature, allowing the operator to more easily climb into and out of the machine. The cab itself is built to provide visibility at any boom position.
