New Terex Hi-Ranger platform + green optionNorth America

New Terex Hi-Ranger platform + green option

The new Terex Hi-Ranger LTM Series of insulated, articulating access platforms offer high reach in a compact design. With a working height of up to 44.5 ft (15.6 m), the LTM40 model boasts 100 in (2.5 m) of upper boom extension for high reach capabilities.

The LTM Series is engineered for convenient, compact operation. With a gross vehicle weight rating of 19,500 lb (8,845 kg), the LTM40 model can be installed on a Class 4 chassis with 7,000 lb front axle — a CDL is not required to operate this utility vehicle. The lower boom travels -5° to 90°, and the upper boom has a trajectory of -20° to 80°. When the lower boom is horizontal, there is no street side overhang. The LTM40 has a platform capacity up to 400 lb (181.4 kg), a horizontal reach of 30.7 ft (9.4 m), and offers up to 200 lb (90.7kg) jib capacity at full side reach.

The Terex HyPower Hybrid System is an available option for the LTM Series. The HyPower System allows operators to save fuel, reduce noise and increase efficiency, plus it has been designed for the utility industry — making it significantly easier for utility operations to “go green.”

Terex Utilities has received approval from the Air Resources Board (ARB) for its Terex HyPower Hybrid System, a plug-in Power Take-Off (PTO) system that uses stored energy from the system’s rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of the vehicle. This approval enables the HyPower system, which can be used on any heavy-duty, diesel-powered vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating over 10,000 lb, to meet the requirements set forth in title 13, California Code of Regulations section 2485. With this approval, Terex may label its HyPower products with “ARB Approval #11-643-002.”

The Terex HyPower hybrid system is a different approach to the Plug-In Electric Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV), says Depazza. It is focused on the work that the vehicle performs on the job site rather than moving the vehicle from location to location. The Terex system is designed to reduce, or even eliminate, the use of fuel for the work done while the vehicle is sitting still. By using plug-in electric hybrid technology to operate the boom and accessories, the Terex HyPower system reduces a whole range of pollution produced from diesel fuel and eliminates the noise from an idling engine normally used to run the hydraulic system.

“The HyPower system offers an average of 1,500 gallons in fuel savings and 13.37 metric tons of CO2 reductions per truck per year,” says Depazza.

“ARB approval opens many doors for Terex Utilities customers,” continues Depazza. “Often, government subsidy money is available to make capital investments such as updating a utility fleet’s technology, but to be eligible to receive these grants the technology may require ARB approval. Now that the Terex HyPower system has an ARB approval label, Terex can better help its customers reap the benefits of these government subsidies.”
