Pettibone MEWP

Pettibone is expanding its product line with its new lineup of mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) market.

The company is immediately introducing a total of 13 models with work heights ranging from 5.6 metres to 14 metres. As well, the new MEWPs have a platform capacity range of 231 kg to 450 kg.

Offered in electric or hydraulic drive configurations, Pettibone’s ANSI A92.20 compliant MEWP’s provide personnel with reliable solutions for safely working at height in indoor or outdoor applications.

Key features of the MEWP line include a universal drive control box with an LED screen, platform extensions with foot pedal control and large scissor arms for excellent stability and durability.

“We are extremely proud of our strong reputation in the material handling industry, and we’re excited to now enter a new arena with high-quality work platforms,” said Scott Raffaelli, vice president and general manager for Pettibone. “The new line is a great complement to our established machines, and we look forward to providing the same level of support and jobsite performance that our dealers and customers have come to expect from Pettibone.”

Pettibone will display the new MEWP models at The ARA Show booth this February in Orlando, Florida, as well as at ConExpo in Las Vegas in March.

Pettibone/Traverse Lift  is part of the Pettibone Heavy Equipment Group. Located in Baraga, Michigan, Pettibone has specialized in building material handling equipment since 1881.

The new MEWPs join the company’s existing product line of Cary-Lifts, Extendo and Traverse telehandlers as well as the Speed Swing and Badger rail solutions.

Alongside its expanded product lineup, Pettibone also recently announced a partnership with Mecalac to provide sales and service support in North America for the Mecalac 8MCR Rail-Road, a compact crawler excavator that is purpose built with factory-installed hi-rails for railway maintenance work.
