Pettibone Traverse T1246X telehandler
The Traverse T1246X telehandler from Pettibone is the third Traverse model to join its next generation X-Series lineup. The telehandler has a traversing boom carriage with capability to move loads by traveling horizontally. This allows for the safe placement of loads at full lift height without having to coordinate multiple boom functions. The T1246X has a specified lift height of 46 feet, 6 inches, which matches its landing height. The traversing boom provides up to 70 inches of horizontal boom transfer, allowing for a maximum forward reach of 35 feet, 10 inches. The telehandler is powered by a 117 hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that helps it achieve a maximum load capacity of 12,000 pounds. The engine is mounted on a side pod for easy service access while allowing excellent curbside visibility and ground clearance of 19 inches. 906-353-4800;

Doosan DX62R-3 mini excavator
Doosan’s DX62R-3 mini excavator has a reduced-tail-swing profile with 4.9 inches of side overhang, allowing for work in confined areas with more flexibility to maneuver. The design utilizes the basics of the existing Doosan mini excavator and builds on it by adjusting the positioning of the excavator upper structure to the undercarriage to reduce tail swing length. Moving the swing center forward extends the machine’s digging reach by 11 inches while maintaining the desired machine balance. 770-831-2200;

Talbert modular 65SA trailer

The trailer’s unique design features a flip extension to accommodate a tandem- or tri-axle jeep dolly, allowing for maximum load configurations. It can also pair with Talbert’s E2 or E3Nitro axle extension, which dampens axle movement and controls load transfer. The modular trailer maintains a 65-ton rating at half the deck length with a 16-inch loaded side deck height and 6-inch loaded road clearance. 888-489-1731;

VMAC throttle control for UNDERHOOD and DTM systems
VMAC has upgraded the throttle control on all new UNDERHOOD and Direct-Transmission Mounted air compressor systems from an analog system to a digital system. The digital throttle control connects to a vehicle’s OBD2 CAN data bus connector allowing it to zero in on rpm setpoints faster and more efficiently than previous analog controllers. As a result, the air compressor systems can achieve the desired rpm quickly, with minimal revving. The digital throttle control is also easier to set up: simply plug the throttle control into the vehicle and it’s ready to go. Adjustments to base idle and max air idle are typically no longer required, as the system automatically finds the right settings for the air compressor’s cfm output. 800-738-8622;
