Pettibone 1056X Telehandler

April 9, 2020

Pettibone Extendo 1056X telehandler has a lift capacity of 10,000 pounds and lift height of 56 feet.

The telehandler has a 74-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4-F diesel engine that uses a DOC for emissions regulations. Optional engines include a 74-horsepower Deutz and a 117-horsepower Cummins. The engine is mounted on a side pod for service access, which also allows curbside visibility and ground clearance of 18 inches.

The four-section boom allows for a maximum forward reach of 40 feet and maximum lift height of 56 feet.

The boom is designed with overlap to provide smooth operation and reduce contact forces on wear pads. An external extend cylinder is mounted on the bottom. It reduces the load on wear pads by up to 50 percent and provides service access to internal boom components. Fastener-less wear pads also simplify service, and heavy-duty extension chains help ensure stable boom functions.

Hydraulic cylinder cushioning dampend the end of strokes—both extending and retracting—to avoid the wear-and-tear of hard, jarring stops, while also helping prevent the potential spilling of a load. The Pettibone telehandler also uses a single lift cylinder that improves 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 with limited-slip front axle differential. Tight steer angle capability provides an efficient turning radius of 14 feet, 4 inches. The Dana VDT12000 Powershift transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse.

The operator cab has an ergonomic seat, pedal, joystick, and steering wheel positions; and provides line of sight in all directions. A new analog/LCD gauge cluster comes standard. An optional 7-inch 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.

All-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks are built to resist damage. The 30-gallon fuel tank offers ample volume for a full day’s work, and the lockable fuel-fill 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.
