The Extendo 944B is the first in a new generation of telehandlers, and has a maximum load capacity of 9,000 pounds with maximum lift height of 44 feet 4 inches. Forward reach is 30 feet 3 inches.
It is powered by a 117-horsepower Tier 4-Final Cummins QSF 3.8 engine with SCR. A Parker IQAN-MD3 display has been added to provide instant engine and aftertreatment diagnostics. The Dana T12000 Powershift transmission provides three speeds, forward and reverse.
The 944B offers 4-wheel, 2-wheel, and crab steering modes and has a turning radius of 12 feet 4 inches.
New service access doors allow users to remove only the front half of the enclosure to perform daily engine and transmission fluid checks, rather than the entire cover. A battery disconnect switch is now standard and accessible from the cab. Formerly an option, a cab step has been added as a standard feature.
