Pettibone: Material handling equipment

Founded in 1881, Pettibone provides material handling equipment, including the Pettibone Speed Swing 445F.

Designed to be versatile for multiple rail-service applications, the speed swing offers precise hydraulic engineering and ample power to lay rails, set ties and clear the track path, company officials say. Options and attachments for the 445F include a tote boom, hydraulic tool circuit, magnet package, AAR coupler, track cleaning bucket, load bucket, 20-foot extendable boom, fork frame, backhoe, brush cutter and snow plow.

Visit Pettibone at Booth #4375 at Railway Interchange 2017, which will be held Sept. 17-20 in Indianapolis.
