Construction equipment: Telehandler is high reaching

Construction equipment: The new Pettibone 1157B is the highest reaching telehandler in the company’s Extendo product line. Featuring industry-leading hydraulics and engineered for efficient performance, the 1157B offers excellent lift capacity for a wide range of material handling jobs.

Delivering a maximum load capacity of 11,000 pounds, the Extendo 1157B provides forward reach up to 42 feet, 1 inch, and an outstanding maximum lift height of 57 feet. Single joystick, pilot operated controls allow for smooth control of all boom and auxiliary hydraulics. For operation in tight areas, the 1157B offers 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab steering modes and has a turning radius of just 12 feet, 6 inches. The unit is exceptionally powerful, yet compact enough to fit under an 8-foot doorway.

The 1157B is powered by a fuel-efficient, 117-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final turbo diesel engine, featuring electronic control and protection with SCR aftertreatment. A Parker IQAN-MD3 display provides instant engine and aftertreatment diagnostics. The machine’s fully modulated Carraro Powershift transmission offers four speeds, forward and reverse. Maximum travel speed for the 1157B is 20 miles per hour.

The rugged design of the Extendo features two wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders with innovative automatic fork and load leveling that eliminates the need for slave cylinders. To further improve load stability, the 1157B offers 24 degrees of frame sway (12 degrees left and right of center) and is equipped with a rear axle stabilization system. The unit is also outfitted with standard foam-filled tires.

The operator cab is built to provide outstanding visibility at any boom position. Engineered with comfort in mind, the Extendo also comes with an adjustable suspension seat and adjustable right-side armrest. A full set of gauges provide instant machine status.

The 1157B telescopic handler comes with a variety of standard fixed and side-tilt carriages from 48 to 72 inches, and several optional attachments are available – including utility buckets and pallet, lumber and block forks. Other optional equipment includes light packages, an enclosed, climate-controlled cab, and several others.

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.
