Construction equipment: More than 65 mechanics and service technicians from 20 U.S. and Canadian utilities and co-ops participated in Terex Utilities’ annual service school in June. Also participating were a Terex rental partner and distributor. Instruction covered technical topics, including boom and rotation hydraulic overload protection, dielectric testing, hydraulic leveling, side load protection, controls, and more.

During the three-day event in Watertown, S.D., participants rotated through a series of stations that incorporate Terex utility equipment and training aids to educate attendees on the most current maintenance, troubleshooting and repair procedures for the company’s digger derricks and aerial devices.

“This in-depth training gives customers the skills and confidence to perform necessary maintenance to keep their Terex equipment operating safely and at peak performance,” said Jason Julius, Technical Support and Training for Terex Utilities. About 75% of the participants were first-time attendees. For this reason, Terex keeps group size small. “Mechanics and technicians are able to get one-on-one instruction, forging personal relationships with our trainers,” said Julius. The staff of instructors includes Terex field service technicians, engineers and national service technicians, many of whom have more than 20 years of experience with Terex Utilities equipment.

Attendees range from brand-new employees to experienced hydraulic and heavy equipment service technicians. The Terex Utilities service school is designed to provide a personal experience, matching depth of instruction to the attendees’ skill level.

In addition to the annual service school at Terex Utilities’ headquarters, training is also available throughout the year at regional Terex Service Centers. Earlier in 2017, schools were held in Pennsylvania and Oregon. This fall, two additional events will take place Sept. 12-14 in Waukesha, Wis., and Oct. 17-19 in White House, Tenn. Class size is limited to 30 participants.
