May 24, 2012 – Terex Utilities now offers a range of tools and solutions for work on energized power lines to electrical industry, electric cooperative and municipal utility customers in North America. Terex hot line tools are specifically designed for use by linemen, electricians and workers in the construction and maintenance of live power lines up to 800kV. The tools help electrical generation, transmission & distribution customers reduce the risk of working with live power lines and the cost associated with shutting down electrical networks for maintenance services. The equipment includes all the necessary tools—as well as personal and collective protection equipment—for different hot line working methods, including hot stick and bare hand methods. In addition to selling these specialty tools and solutions separately, Terex also offers customers the ability to custom-fit their Terex utility trucks with the hot line equipment electric crews need the most.
