Pettibone has introduced the Extendo 1246X telehandler, which delivers 12,000 lbs. of load capacity. Built on Pettibone’s next generation X-Series platform, this unit is ideal demanding applications.

The 1246X is powered by a 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing exceptional curbside visibility and ground clearance of 19 inches. A 30-gallon fuel tank provides ample volume for a full day’s work at 100% load.

The 1246X offers a maximum lift height of 46 feet, 6 inches; max forward reach of 30 feet; and max load capacity of 12,000 lbs. 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.

Boom overlap is nearly double that of previous models to provide smoother operation and reduce contact forces on wear pads, thereby extending service life. A bottom-mounted external extend cylinder further reduces the load on wear pads by up to 50%. This cylinder location also provides greatly improved service access to internal boom components. Fastener-less wear pads also simplify service, and heavy-duty extension chains help ensure stable boom functions.
