Pettibone’s New 10,000-Lb. X-Series Telehandler Reaches Up 56’

Pettibone Telehandler

The new Extendo 1056X telehandler from Pettibone can lift 10,000 lbs. or reach up 56’.

The new model joins Pettibone’s X-Series lineup of telehandlers. The new Extendo model builds on the Baraga, Michigan, manufacturer’s tradition of rugged design while also offering numerous performance improvements for contractors and rental users who work in masonry, construction, and other material handling applications.

The Extendo 1056X comes standard with a 74-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that features a DOC muffler and needs no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

The machine is also the first X-Series model to offer an optional Deutz 74-hp Tier 4 Final engine. A 117-hp Cummins engine is also an option. Mounted in a side pod, the engine is easy to access for servicing, offers excellent curb-side visibility, has 18” of ground clearance.

The four-section boom delivers 40’ of forward reach and up to 56’ of lifting height. Its formed plates offer high strength while reducing weight, and the boom design minimizes deflection for better accuracy when placing loads.

Abundant boom-section overlap makes operation smooth and reduces contact force on wear pads, thereby extending service life. A bottom-mounted external extension cylinder further reduces the load on wear pads by up to 50%.

The cylinder’s location also makes it easier to access and service components inside the boom. Fastener-less wear pads also simplify service, and heavy-duty extension chains help ensure stable boom functions.

Pettibone’s proven hydraulics deliver exceptional control and operating feel, while enhancing efficiency and cycle speed. Cylinder cushioning has been introduced to dampen the end of extending and retracting strokes. Cushioning helps avoid hard jarring stops that cause wear and tear and can potentially cause spilling of a load.

The telehandler also uses a single lift cylinder in order to improve operator sight lines and has twin non-tensioned hydraulic lines for tilt and auxiliary plumbing.

Drivetrain and axles have been optimized to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top-end speed. A pintle hitch mount adds versatility for towing. Built for use on rough terrain, the unit offers full-time 4-wheel-drive and a limited-slip front-axle differential. A tight maximum steering angle lets the machine turn in as little as 14’4”. The Dana VDT12000 Powershift transmission offers three speeds forward and reverse.

The Extendo operator cab maintains Pettibone’s ergonomic seat, pedal, joystick, and steering wheel positions, while optimizing line of sight in all directions. A new analog/LCD gauge cluster comes standard. An optional 7” digital display with integrated back-up camera is also available. The cab also offers enhanced climate control, flat bolt-in glass, split door design, openable rear window, USB accessory plug, lockable storage under the seat, and water-resistant components for easy interior washdown.

The all-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks resist damage. The 30-gallon fuel tank offers ample volume for a full day’s work, and the lockable fuel-filler is in a clean, accessible location. Other features include non-tensioned boom hoses, split-system electrical circuit panels, a 12-volt accessory plug in the engine bay, and heavy-duty bright LED lighting. Additional options include a sling hook for additional load security and a wide variety of attachments.
