Customer Testimonials

We can tell you plenty about how productive, durable and safe our equipment is, but don't just take our word for it. Hear what customers have to say about their Pettibone machines.

The new box construction of the Extendo 944X boom was noticeably more stable, especially under load and at full extension. The machine delivered plenty of power. What’s nice about the new machine is they’re using almost the same control system. It was very easy for the guys to transition from the older telehandler to the new model. Positioning the machine was very easy with how smooth the controls are.

Pettibone is the best piece of equipment ever made – top of the line equipment for a pipe yard.

If safely and efficiently handling, unloading and loading pipe is your goal, you just can’t beat a Pettibone Cary-Lift. Our Cary-Lift units are the workhorses in our rough terrain pipe yard, and their unique articulating arms allow us to safely unload and load trucks using less time and labor. We document maintenance records on all of our equipment and know that the strength of our well-constructed Cary-Lifts, in conjunction with a sensible preventive maintenance program, has resulted in very dependable units with a long work life.

Our Cary-Lifts have been nothing but phenomenal machines to run. Speed, agility, maneuverability – all of these features allow us to get pipe around our yard quickly and efficiently.

You can feel the stability! I always felt like I could tip over in the wheel-loader I drove, but the Cary-Lift is rock solid.

Dealer Testimonials

We specialize in exporting manufactured goods overseas. Historically most of our Pettibone work has gone into Algeria. They have some of the longest pipeline systems in the world. Because of all the pipelines, they have a lot of pipe yards, so our focus with Pettibone has been the pipe handling machines (Cary-Lifts). The operators look at a Pettibone product as one, making them safer, and two, helping them do their job more efficiently.

Pettibone material handling equipment is rugged and innovative, particularly in demanding load handling applications.

John Mutis
VP of Sales at Leavitt Machinery
[Coquitlam, BC]

Pettibone has always made a good quality product. It’s stable. It’s stout. A lot of the larger contractors we work with are looking for products that are going to last – and they like the quality of Pettibone.
