Utility vehicles: Terex Utilities will showcase its commitment to continuous improvement and innovation at the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, June 4-7, Williamsburg, Va.

Cited to be one of the firsts in the industry is the Terex Load Alert system, to be displayed on a Terex Hi-Ranger SCM 55 aerial device. Load Alert monitors and analyzes the truck’s jib and basket capacity and provides visible and audible alarms when an overload has been detected to aid users to support their safe work practices.

Another solution from Terex is the HyPower IM system, which will be shown on a Hi-Ranger LT40 telescopic aerial device. This idle mitigation and cab comfort system reduces fuel usage and exhaust emissions at a lower price point than other hybrid systems.

Terex Utilities’ latest enhancement, the Optima TC55 aerial device, features lower travel height, better ground access, and improved boom speeds. The Optima TC55 is a 55-ft. non-overcenter aerial with up to 42.8 ft. of side reach. That’s three feet longer than the legacy model which helps with truck positioning at the jobsite. Increased boom speeds and responsiveness also help increase productivity on the job. Additionally, the platform can be lowered near the ground, making it easier for operators to access and handle tools and equipment passed from the ground crew.

Fleet managers regularly request reliable equipment with maximum uptime. To that end, Terex reduced and simplified maintenance on the Optima TC55. A new pedestal design allows for easier access for torqueing lower rotation bearing bolts. O-ring face seals allow for improved hydraulic connections and are used on hoses and fittings above rotation.
