Pettibone’s do-it-all Speed Swing 445F is now available with the CreepDrive system from Poclain Hydraulics.
This optional feature lets the Speed Swing run high-flow hydraulic attachments like snowblowers or power brooms while traveling the machine independently at a slower speed on or off the rails.
Poclain CreepDrive is a hydrostatic driveline motor that can be clutched. When the operator wants to engage CreepDrive, the Speed Swing’s mechanical transmission is placed into neutral. A display interface is then used to raise and lower engine speed for up to 33 gpm of hydraulic flow to run high-flow attachments.
At the same time, the operator can use and integrated rocker pedal to travel the machine forward or backward precisely at slow speeds of 2 mph or less.
The Speed Swing 445F is also available with dozens of attachments that do not require CreepDrive, including an adjustable V-type snowplow, tote boom, track-cleaning bucket, load bucket, hydraulic tool circuit, magnet package, 20’ extendible boom, fork frame, and many more. Most attachments connect to the machine with a standard pin-on connection or ACS quick coupler.
The Speed Swing 445F provides 180° boom rotation. Its spacious, climate-controlled operator cab includes a digital IQAN display, full instrumentation panel, and precise, pilot-operated controls. Tinted safety glass and a rearview camera help ensure safe operation.
