Princeton PiggyBack®
PB55X+

The 5,500 lb. capacity PB55X+ is the first unit in the industry equipped with a standard "Double Reach" feature. This unique feature, which adds an extending scissors reach system to the standard moving mast, doubles the length of the reach of the PB55X+ across the bed. With the PB55X+, your driver now can unload an entire truck or trailer from one side, even from positions where tanks or tandems are located.

The new PB+ series machines have been redesigned with new features on the inside and out to increase performance, safety, options, and simplify maintenance.
