The Pettibone Extendo 944X telehandler is powered by a 74-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that features a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) muffler and requires no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing curbside visibility and ground clearance of 18 inches. A 117-hp option is also available.
With its newly designed boom, the 944X offers maximum lift capacity of 9,000 lbs., max forward reach of 30 feet, and max 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.
