Load Alert Monitor Display
Terex Utilities has updated the monitor display for the Terex Load Alert system. Load Alert monitors and analyzes the truck’s jib and platform capacity and boom positions on Terex aerial devices. It provides visible and audible alerts when an overload is detected. Load Alert monitors boom angle, platform and jib capacity, winch line distance from the platform pivot point, and winch line load. Included in the display is a full load chart in addition to the printed load chart to help operators stay within the operating limits of the aerial device. The initial screen indicates that the system is operational and, during operations, now turns red if an overload is detected and displays “overload” on the screen. A dial read-out shows the percentage of overload for either the platform or the jib or both. In addition, an alert sounds in the platform and at ground level.

Bigfoot Construction Equipment, an American family manufacturer that specializes in outrigger pads, offers standard, custom and premium outrigger pads to maximize compressive loads. Outrigger pads are built in different sizes in length, width and thickness as well as shapes and materials. There are pros and cons to shapes, the larger square outrigger pads have a larger surface area of contact, but they are not as easy to move around on the jobsite as the round outrigger pads, which can usually be rolled by 1 person into position but have less area of contact. The premium birch with which Bigfoot builds wooden outrigger pads has been used since 1991. Birch has been put to the test with some of the largest equipment and in the harshest field conditions. Bigfoot also manufactures two different crane pad racks that mount on the back of cranes to store its composite or wood outrigger pads. This clears up deck space and helps with lifting the outrigger pads on and off the crane’s deck.
