The 74-horsepower Cummins QSF3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine features a DOC muffler and requires no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).


Market-proven Dana T12000 Powershift series transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse, and is complemented by a heavy-duty transmission cooler.


Dana 212 series inboard service axles with oil immersed inboard service and parking brakes offer enhanced reliability. Drivetrain and axles have been optimized with the 74-horsepower engine to provide greater tractive effort with minimal tradeoff on top end speed.

Lift Cylinders

Two wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders are slightly angled toward the center line of the chassis to triangulate the overall alignment. This keeps the boom centered as it elevates.

Rear Axle Stabilization

The rear axle stabilization system slows and locks the rear axle oscillation for enhanced stability as the boom is raised.

Sway Cylinder

Provides 24 degrees of frame leveling (12 degrees right and left of center).

Fork Leveling

The 944B provides automatic fork leveling without needing slave cylinders.


Achieves forward reach up to 30 feet, 3 inches and a maximum lift height of 44 feet, 4 inches.


Pressure compensated hydraulic system and auxiliary boom tip hydraulics give operators the flexibility to use multiple hydraulic functions at once. Single joystick, pilot operated control covers all boom functions.

Quick Connect

Easily switch between standard fork carriage and a wide range of attachments.


4-wheel drive with 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab hydraulic power steering modes provides agility in tight spaces.

Turning Radius

Tight turning radius of 14 feet, 1 inches allows for more efficient operation.

Compact Design

Compact enough to fit under 8-foot doorway, yet still provides excellent ground clearance of 18 inches.


Standard 13.00 x 24 pneumatic tires offer 16 ply rating for durability on any terrain.

Operator Cab

Offering unmatched visibility, the cab includes an adjustable suspension seat with seat belt, adjustable right-side armrest, and a full set of gauges for instant machine status.
