The need for frequent and thorough disinfecting of work trucks like aerial devices and digger derricks is a new task for service managers. In response to questions from customers, Terex Utilities has released Tech Tip #140 to provide a reminder of the many surfaces on a piece of equipment that may have been touched by crew members.

Terex Utilities recently acted on a request by Lake Area Technical Institute (LATI) to 3D print parts for face shields. The Electronic Systems Technology and Robotics departments at the technical college are leading the effort. "Because it takes up to 13 hours to print four face shield bands, they sent a request out to local businesses to lend a hand by printing parts needed for a completed shield," said Dan Brenden, director of engineering of Terex Utilities.

In 2019, Terex Utilities released or updated more than 50 Tech Tips and service presentations. "Terex equipment has a reputation for long life. Over the course of that in-service life, we strive to partner with fleet managers and maintenance personnel to provide professional resources to make their jobs easier," said Jason Julius, technical support and training.

Terex Utilities launched three new telescopic and material handling aerial devices designed for transmission work at the 2019 International Construction & Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE). The TL Transmission Series has options for Category A or Category B dielectric rating, depending on the configuration.

Terex Utilities's spin bottom drill bucket for use with digger derricks is designed to improve productivity when drilling in unstable ground conditions, such as wet or sandy environments. As the tool drills into the ground, barrel teeth cut through the material while the bucket captures it, allowing the operator to dump the material outside of the hole.

Terex Utilities now offers purchasing managers a convenient way to buy all the tools and accessories needed for typical utility work. The 2019 Tools & Accessories Catalog contains hundreds of products — from climbing equipment to traffic safety gear.
