The Extendo 944X telehandler builds upon Pettibone’s traditional rock-solid design, delivering ruggedness and dependability while providing several new design enhancements.
The Extendo 944X is powered by a 74-horsepower Deutz 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 service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance of 18 inches.
The 944X offers maximum lift capacity of 9,000 pounds, 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. Pettibone’s leading hydraulics continue to deliver exceptional controllability and overall operating feel, while enhancing efficiency and cycle speeds.
The Extendo 944X comes standard with X-Command, a new Pettibone telematics program that offers real-time access to machine data, thereby saving time, money and hassle for equipment owners and maintenance technicians.
