New Terex Tru-Level Tilting Pedestal System for Terex SC and HRM Series aerial devices allows operation on slopes up to 20 degrees to accommodate the need for "real world" truck positioning. The Terex system decreases stress on the rotation gearbox when rotating up the hill, decreases set-up time because it eliminates the need to crib the outriggers, and does not limit boom operation or load charts.

Other Tru-Level Tilting Pedestal System benefits include keeping the work platform level longitudinally, safety and less fatigue for the operator maintaining balance, aerial device is able to operate in its designed configuration, and cylinders are rated to independently support the rated load.

Another aspect of the Terex Tru-Level Tilting Pedestal System is the anticipated increase in rotation system service life. When aerial devices operate on a slope, the rotation system often works harder. This Terex system will save service time and costs because of easier access to the collector block and rotation bearing bolts, as well as decreased stress on the rotation gearbox during uphill work.
