The new Terex Load Alert system option for Hi-Ranger aerial devices, on select units only, will supplement utility crews’ current safe work practices. When used in conjunction with an aerial device’s material-handling load chart, the Terex Load Alert system provides both visible and audible alarms to notify operators and the ground crew if a platform or jib capacity has been exceeded.
Terex developed the new Load Alert system in response to market demand for new technology solutions as an operator aid for crews in the field. It is designed to monitor and analyze the truck’s jib and basket capacity, the winch line load, the winch line’s distance from the platform’s pivot point and boom positions.
Customers can also opt to receive wireless notifications via text or email, so that supervisors and fleet directors have the ability to manage their equipment. www.terex.com/utilities
