Utility trucks: The completely redesigned Terex® XT Pro Series Tree Trimmer trucks are designed to meet the unique jobsite needs of tree care professionals. These new overcenter aerial devices have the same features that made the company’s previous tree trimmers so popular -- simple, reliable operation, low maintenance and lightweight design. The XT Pro Series tree trimmers also boast a host of new features, including a longitudinal hydraulic lift option to provide up to 75 ft (22.9 m) of working height, upper boom articulation of 250° and 125° of lower boom articulation, to further extend these aerial devices’ capacities and capabilities.

Extensive user interviews were conducted throughout all aspects of the design process so all three models in the new XT Series Pro tree trimmers share common user friendly design elements, including round pedestals for easier access to bearing bolts, a platform capacity of up to 400 lb (181 kg) to accommodate one person plus tools and an elbow cylinder that is fully retracted when stored, decreasing exposure to the elements. The compact longitudinal lift on these models is lighter and shorter than its predecessors, and the new design accommodates an 11-ft (3.35 m) chipbox so there is no reduction in chip storage space.

A unique feature of the XT Pro tree trimmer is a control system that senses what hydraulic flow is needed to move the boom to a new position without having to disengage the tool circuit. This feature allows the operator to concentrate on the task at hand without having to manually manage hydraulic flow between the controls and tools. This new control system is designed to save the operator both time and effort throughout the course of the working day.

A new boom tip on the XT Series Pro models reduces the overall weight of the machines. It is also manufactured with durable covers over all-steel components to hold up over time against environmental elements. Because of the way these tree trimmers are engineered, these models have the capability to mount a 75-ft (22.9 m) unit on a 13,200 lb (5,987 kg) front axle chassis.

The XT Pro 56 model has a 56-ft (17 m) bottom of platform height. This unit offers a 61-ft (18.6 m) working height, a 45.6-ft (13.9 m) overcenter side reach and a 41.5-ft (12.6 m) non-overcenter side reach.

The XT Pro 60 aerial device has a 60-ft (18.3 m) bottom of platform height. This tree trimmer achieves 65-ft (19.8 m) of working height, 49.9-ft (15.2 m) of overcenter side reach and 45-ft (13.7 m) of non-overcenter side reach.

The XT Pro 60/70 tree trimmer has a 70-ft (21.3 m) bottom of platform height. It boasts 75-ft (22.9 m) of working height, 49.9-ft (15.2 m) of overcenter side reach and 45-ft (13.7 m) of non-overcenter side reach.
