Used Pettibone Equipment

No matter what work you’re doing, you need equipment that can rise to the occasion. But you need it at an affordable price so the work gets done without exceeding your budget.

At Chicago Industrial Equipment, you can get the used machinery you need without losing any functionality or safety features. Every one of our products goes through a rigorous machine inspection every year and they have to pass before we ever sell the equipment. Our single lot in Illinois contains any piece of our inventory that you can find on our website.


When you shop for your used equipment from Chicago Industrial, you’ll notice our dedication to quality. We invest in our facilities, professionals and product inventory with a 100 percent focus on reconditioning and selling used equipment at an affordable rate. More than brokers or rental companies without much focus on sales, we provide a variety of forklifts, aerial platforms and telescopic material handlers suited to our customers and their unique applications. We sell a collection of items from a number of trusted brands, including used Pettibone equipment.

Active since 1881, Pettibone boasts a specialty in material handling equipment, so you know their focus is on exactly the equipment you’re shopping for. They target safety, durability and applicability to unique jobs so your work can be safer and more productive. They’ve done more than a few impressive things over the years, including the invention of the Cary-Lift and other crucial, cutting-edge industry equipment.

Pettibone equipment is built with strong and innovative components for long reaches, heavy material and ultimately higher performance.


Used Pettibone Forklifts

When you buy used, you buy smart. With Chicago Industrial Equipment, you don’t have to give up any safety or functionality when you make the decision to buy used. We inspect and service every piece thoroughly to make sure that as soon as you receive it, it’s ready for use. Some of the advantages of purchasing our used equipment instead of deciding on brand-new products are:

  • Saved money: You can find the equipment you need for far cheaper when you buy used. The fact that we offer products at a cheaper rate that have the same high quality and safety standards keeps customers from all over the world coming back again and again.


  • Wider variety: Since you aren’t spending as much on each individual piece of equipment, you’ll have room in your budget to shop around for additional products. Look into the rest of our expansive inventory when you realize your new buying freedom!


  • Quicker access: You will never deal with backorders and you won’t have to wait for each component to be built individually after you place an order. Instead, anything available for purchase you see on our website will be in our lot, ready to be shipped immediately.


Pettibone forklifts come in an assortment of models with different features, but all are high-quality and impressive. Their designs adhere to strict visibility and stability standards so the driver knows exactly where they are placing their heavy and sometimes dangerous materials without hazard, and the equipment stays still and safe throughout the process.

Whether you need to move poles, logs, pipes or other objects from one place to another, you will find what you need at an affordable rate with a used Pettibone forklift from Chicago Industrial.


Used Pettibone Telehandlers

Traverse and Extendo — Pettibone’s lines of telescopic handlers — have some telehandler models with extendable booms that traverse horizontally with a horizontal boom transfer that can reach up to 70 inches. This allows users extra precision without the need to reposition the machine. These telehandlers perform well above the average, with an impressive lifespan and ability to work for the long haul.

Different models allow you to take advantage of countless high-end features like superior engine strength, transmission, fork leveling, hydraulics and more.
