Pettibone co-developed a new axle for its PrecisionSteer system on all 6,000-, 8,000-, and 10,000-pound telehandlers to meet the demands of four-wheel steering. The Carraro 26.43 axle is a response to industry concerns over tire wear. Pettibone says manufacturers have sacrificed proper wheel alignment to allow higher turning angles and improve maneuverability using axles originally created for two-wheel steer on backhoe-loaders. PrecisionSteer is said to cut the steering error by half.
