Pettibone Introduces Cary-Lift 254i to Material Handling Lineup
Pettibone has introduced the Cary-Lift 254i to its line of pipe, pole and log handlers. Purpose-built to deliver numerous safety and performance benefits over other material handling alternatives, the Cary-Lift is particularly adept at moving and placing heavy pipe in stock yards and construction sites.
The Cary-Lift 254i features a unique overhead lift arm design, giving the operator full front visibility when lifting or transporting loads – a sharp contrast to the lift arms on wheel loaders, which are located directly in front of the vehicle. Additionally, Cary-Lift forks are capable of tilting down 90° for specialized lifting tasks, such as unloading pipe from railroad gondola cars.
The 254i is powered by a 225-hp Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 diesel engine. The machine provides a maximum load capacity of 11,340 kg and max lift height of 4.27 m. Offering 4-wheel drive with 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab hydraulic power steering modes – and with the wheelbase limited to just 366 cm – the 254i can achieve a turning radius of 7.16 m.
Unlike forward-reaching articulated loaders, the Cary-Lift’s heavy-duty, solid steel frame design allows it to take full loads into sharp turns without sacrificing load capacity or stability. Hydraulic frame sway control and side shift capabilities further stabilize loads by leveling the lifting frame when driving on uneven ground. The sway cylinder moves 7° both right and left of center.
A sliding door offers quick access to the comfortable operator cab. Dual joysticks provide intuitive controls to shift gears and control the hydraulics.
A quick attach system increases the machine’s versatility, with fork frames, pipe and pole baler, log baler, scrap baler and tire handler all available as attachments.
