Compensated boom option for aerial devices

Watertown, S.D.—Terex Utilities now offers a compensated boom option for its Hi-Ranger RMX Series non-overcenter material handling aerial devices, which includes the RMX65, RMX70 and RMX75 models.

Compensated booms allow for simultaneous operation of the upper and lower booms to get lineman into working position more quickly. Functions on the Terex RMX compensated boom models are performed by hydraulic cylinders, offering smooth operation and eliminating components such as compensating chains and walking links. On a compensated boom aerial device, the upper boom maintains the same angle to the ground as the lower boom is raised or lowered.

The RMX Series offers working heights from 70.0 ft (21.4 m) to 79.7 ft (24.4 m). These aerial devices are available in either end or side mount platform configurations for operators—up to 700-lb capacity for end mount, and up to 800-lb capacity for side mount units, and are designed with a pilot-operated, closed-center hydraulic system.
