Terex Offers New Weight-Reduced Hydraulic Lifts

October 18, 2011

Terex Utilities announces two new weight-reduced hydraulic lift options for Terex Hi-Ranger aerial devices. Compared to traditional lifts, these are engineered with higher strength and lower weight materials. This provides faster operating speeds for quick cycle times and reduces fuel consumption for project cost savings.

For the tree-trimming market, Terex offers a transverse-mounted hydraulic lift for XT Series overcenter aerial devices. This 10 ft. lift is weight-reduced for use on a 12,000 lb. front axle chassis and is an available option on the XT55, XT60, XT55/65 and XT60/70 models.

The company also offers weight-reduced 25 ft. hydraulic lifts for its X Series aerial devices; this includes the side-mount XML and HRX overcenter material handling models and the TCX end-mount nonovercenter material handling models. The cycle times of the X Series hydraulic lift achieved a 60-second, or 22 percent, speed improvement and a 1,600 lb. weight reduction over traditional 25 ft. hydraulic lifts.

The 25 ft. side-mount lift is an available option on the XML55, XML60, HRX52, HRX55 and HRX60 models. The 25 ft. end-mount lift is available on the TCX-52, TCX-55 and TCX-60.
