US telehandler and scissor lift manufacturer Pettibone has added a 4.5 tonne/17.2 metre T1056X telehandler to its Traverse range.
Weighing 14.7 tonnes, the T1056X can lift 2.85 tonne to its maximum lift height of 17.2 metres and take 1.42 tonnes to its maximum forward reach just shy of 14 metres. It offers an overall width of 2.6 metres, a height of 2.72 metres and a length of seven metres to the fork frame. It has a ground clearance of 460mm and a turning radius of 4.37 metres. Power comes from a Tier IV Final Cummins diesel engine with diesel exhaust fluid and selective catalytic reduction after treatment.
Similar to the other models in the Traverse range, the T1056X features a traversing boom carriage which can move the entire boom forward and backwards along the telehandler chassis to provide up to 1.77 metres additional reach. The company claims this not only allows operators to place loads at full height without the need for multiple boom functions, but that, unlike other telehandlers on the market, its ‘landing height’ is identical to its lift height.
The T1056X joins three other models in the Traverse range which includes the four tonne/13.5 metre T944X, the recently launched 5.4 tonne/14.6 metre T1246X and the 5.4 tonne/17.8 metre T1258X.
