Pettibone to Debut Next Gen Traverse Telehandler

Pettibone to Debut Next Gen Traverse Telehandler

Pettibone will debut the T944X, its next generation Traverse telehandler, at booth #C5685 during World of Concrete, January 23-26, 2018, in Las Vegas. It will also be on display at booth #2451 during The Rental Show, February 19-21, 2018, in New Orleans.

The Traverse is the only telescopic handler currently on the market with an extendable, traversing boom that moves loads by traveling horizontally. This capability allows users to precisely and safely place loads forward through windows or other tight openings without having to reposition the machine.

With the Traverse, the specified lift height is the landing height. This stands in contrast to a traditional fixed boom pivot, where the true landing height is generally several feet less than advertised, as operators must account for withdrawing the forks out of the load with enough rearward travel for the fork tips to clear the landing zone.

Pettibone/Traverse Lift, LLC is part of the Pettibone, LLC Heavy Equipment Group. Founded in 1881, Pettibone has been recognized as the industry leader in material handling equipment since the company revolutionized the industry with the first forward-reaching, rough-terrain machines in the 1940s.
