The Pettibone Traverse is the industry’s only line of telescopic handlers with an extendable boom that traverses horizontally. With up to 70 inches of horizontal boom transfer, users can place loads precisely without having to coordinate multiple boom functions, bringing an added level of safety and efficiency to the jobsite.
The Pettibone Traverse is available in 3 models to cover all your lifting needs.
Horizontal Traversing Boom
The Traverse provides up to 70 inches of horizontal boom transfer, the industry’s only new machine with this capability. With Traverse, the specified lift height is the same as the landing height. This stands in contrast to a traditional fixed boom pivot, where the true landing height is generally several feet less than the advertised lift height, as operators must account for withdrawing the forks out of the load with enough rearward travel for the fork tips to clear the landing zone.
Powered by a Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Side pod mounting offers easy service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance.
Drivetrain & Axles
Drivetrain and axles have been optimized to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top end speed.
Newly designed boom with formed boom plates that offer greater strength with less weight.
The Traverse’s hydraulic circuit delivers exceptional controllability, efficiency and cycle speeds.
Damage-resistant, all-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks. Fuel tank provides ample fuel volume for a full day’s work at 100% load.
The operator cab includes ergonomic seat, pedal, joystick and steering wheel positions. Available as an open canopy or enclosed cab, it features an all-steel interior with water-resistant components for easy washdown.
