Pettibone’s Extendo 1246X

Pettibone has officially introduced the Extendo 1246X telehandler, a machine that delivers a 12,000 pounds of load capacity. Built on Pettibone’s next generation X-Series platform, the unit is ideal for contractors and rental users working in demanding applications ranging from construction to masonry to oil and gas.

The 1246X is powered by a 117-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing  curbside visibility and ground clearance of 19 inches. A 30-gallon fuel tank provides  volume for a full day’s work at 100 percent load.

The 1246X offers a maximum lift height of 46 feet, 6 inches, max forward reach of 30 feet, and max load capacity of 12,000 pounds. Formed boom plates provide the boom structure with greater strength while reducing weight, the company said. The design also minimizes boom deflection for better control and accuracy when placing loads.

Boom overlap is nearly double that of previous models to provide smoother operation and reduce contact forces on wear pads, thereby extending service life. A bottom-mounted external extend cylinder further reduces the load on wear pads by up to 50 percent. “The cylinder location also provides greatly improved service access to internal boom components. Fastener-less wear pads also simplify service, and heavy-duty extension chains help ensure stable boom functions,” Pettibone said.

Cylinder cushioning dampens the end of strokes – both extending and retracting – to avoid the wear-and-tear of hard, jarring stops, while also helping prevent the potential spilling of a load. The telehandler also uses a single lift cylinder that improves operator sight lines and has twin non-tensioned hydraulic lines for tilt and auxiliary plumbing.

Drivetrain and axles have been optimized to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top end speed. A pintle hitch mount adds versatility for towing. Built for use on rough terrain, the unit offers full-time 4-wheel-drive with limited-slip front axle differential. A Dana VDT12000 Powershift transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse.

The Extendo operator cab maintains Pettibone’s ergonomic seat, pedal, joystick and steering wheel positions, while optimizing line of sight in all directions. A new analog/LCD gauge cluster comes standard. An optional 7-inch digital display with integrated back-up camera is also available. The cab also offers enhanced climate control, flat bolt-in glass, split door design, openable rear window, USB accessory plug, lockable storage under the seat and water-resistant components for easy interior washdown.

All-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks are built to resist damage, and the lockable fuel-fill is in a clean, accessible location. Other features include split-system electrical circuit panels, a 12-volt accessory plug in the engine bay, and heavy-duty bright LED lighting. Additional options include axle-mounted outriggers, solid or foam-filled tires, a sling hook for additional load security and a wide variety of attachments.
