Terex Load Alert keeps workers safe at height
June 10, 2016 by On-Site Magazine
The Terex Load Alert system 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 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 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.
