Pettibone Adds T1056X Telehandler to Traverse Lineup
Pettibone recently introduced the Traverse T1056X telehandler, the first 4,500-kg-capacity Traverse model it its X-Series lineup. Traverse is the industry’s only new telehandler product line with a traversing boom carriage with the capability to move loads by traveling horizontally. This exclusive feature allows operators to safely place loads at full lift height without needing to coordinate multiple boom functions.
The T1056X has a specified lift height of 17.2 m and the landing height is identical, thanks to its horizontal sliding boom. By contrast, traditional fixed boom pivots typically have a true landing height that is less than the promoted lift height, as the operator must account for withdrawing the forks out of the load with enough rearward travel for the fork tips to clear the landing zone.
The traversing boom of the T1056X provides up to 1.8 m of horizontal boom transfer, which extends its maximum forward reach to 14 m. Delivering a maximum load capacity of 4,500 kg, the telehandler is powered by a 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 diesel engine. Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance of 45 cm.
The Traverse T1056X was engineered on Pettibone’s next gen X-Series platform, providing a combination of rugged dependability, simplified maintenance, intuitive operation, and clear sightlines for enhanced visibility.
The T1056X uses a single lift cylinder that improves operator sight-lines, and has twin hydraulic lines for tilt and auxiliary plumbing. Featuring formed boom plates and less welding, the machine’s 4-section boom offers greater strength while reducing weight. The design also minimizes boom deflection for better control and accuracy when placing loads.
