Next Gen Telehandler


Featuring several next gen optimizations, the Extendo 944X telehandler is powered by a standard 74-hp engine and features tried-and-true Pettibone hydraulics along with a boom that adds strength, but reduces weight.


The design, which includes formed boom plates, minimizes boom deflection for better control and accuracy when placing loads. The boom has a maximum lift capacity of 9,000 lb., max forward reach of 30 ft and max lift height of 44 ft, 6 in.


Pettibone has nearly doubled boom overlap from previous models, which makes for smoother operation and less force on wear pads. A bottom-mounted external extend cylinder also reduces the load on the wear pad in half. All of this serves to extend the machine’s service life, and the location of the cylinder makes service access easier to internal boom components. Service is further simplified by fasten-less wear pads and a single extension chain instead of having to balance dual chains.


Cylinder cushioning has been added to smooth out extension and retraction to prevent hard, jarring stops that cause wear and tear and loads to spill. The telehandler’s single lift cylinder also improves sight lines. It features twin non-tensioned hydraulic lines for tilt and auxiliary plumbing.


The telehandler runs on a 74-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 final diesel engine, which is mounted on a side pod to improve service access and curbside visibility and to provide ground clearance of 18 inches. A 117-hp model is optional.


The 944X is built for rough terrain, featuring four-wheel drive and limited-slip front axle differential. The Dana Powershift transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse. Turning radius is 14 ft, 1 in.


The cab features enhanced climate control, flat bolt-in glass and a split-door design. The rear window opens, and lockable storage is provided beneath the ergonomic seat. A USB accessory plug has been added. The components are water resistant, so they can be washed easily. The cab also features an ergonomic pedal, joystick and steering wheel. A new analog/LCD gauge cluster is standard, and a 7-in. digital display with backup camera is optional.


The telehandler’s fuel and hydraulic tanks are built of damage-resistant steel. The 30-gallon fuel tank has a lockable fuel-fill. Other features include non-tensioned boom hoses, split-system electrical circuit panels, a 12 V accessory plug in the engine bay, and heavy-duty bright LED lighting. A sling hook for additional load security and a variety of attachments are available as options.
