Pettibone’s Traverse T1258X telehandler marks the company’s entry into the 12,000-lb. capacity market. It has a traversing boom carriage that can move loads by traveling horizontally. By providing up to 70 inches of horizontal boom transfer, the Traverse allows operators to safely place loads at full lift height without needing to coordinate multiple boom functions.

The T1258X has a specified lift height of 58 feet, 6 inches and its landing height is identical. The traversing boom allows for maximum forward reach of 47 feet, 10 inches.

The telehandler is powered by a 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that helps the machine achieve its maximum load capacity of 12,000 lbs. The engine is mounted on a side pod for easy service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance of 19 inches.

All-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks are built to resist damage. The 30-gallon fuel tank offers ample volume for a full day’s work at 100% load, and the lockable fuel-fill is in a clean, accessible location.
