Delivering a maximum load capacity of 11,000 lbs. (4,989 kg), the Extendo 1157B provides forward reach up to 42 ft. 1 in. (12.8 m), and an outstanding maximum lift height of 57 ft. (17.3 m). Single joystick, pilot operated controls allow for smooth control of all boom and auxiliary hydraulics.

For operation in tight areas, the 1157B offers 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab steering modes and has a turning radius of just 12 ft. 6 in. (3.8 m). The unit is exceptionally powerful, yet compact enough to fit under an 8-ft. (2.4 m) doorway.

The 1157B is powered by a fuel-efficient, 117-hp Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier IV Final turbo diesel engine, featuring electronic control and protection with SCR aftertreatment. A Parker IQAN-MD3 display provides instant engine and aftertreatment diagnostics. The machine's fully modulated Carraro Powershift transmission offers four speeds, forward and reverse. Maximum travel speed for the 1157B is 20 mi. (32 km) per hour.

The rugged design of the Extendo features two wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders with innovative automatic fork and load leveling that eliminates the need for slave cylinders. To further improve load stability, the 1157B offers 24 degrees of frame sway (12 degrees left and right of center) and is equipped with a rear axle stabilization system. The unit also is outfitted with standard foam-filled tires.

The operator cab is built to provide outstanding visibility at any boom position. Engineered with comfort in mind, the Extendo also comes with an adjustable suspension seat and adjustable right-side armrest. A full set of gauges provide instant machine status.

The 1157B telescopic handler comes with a variety of standard fixed and side-tilt carriages from 48 to 72 in. (122 to 183 cm), and several optional attachments are available — including utility buckets and pallet, lumber and block forks. Other optional equipment includes light packages, an enclosed, climate-controlled cab, and several others.
