Terex AWP "Ramp Up To Terex" Roadshow

I returned this afternoon from visiting the Terex AWP "Ramp Up To Terex" Roadshow stop at Hertz Equipment Rental in Elmhurst, IL. The touring exhibition features the Terex HFT 70RS rental trailer and the newly redesigned Genie Industries S-80 telescopic boom. Those in attendance were given a demonstration of the new features of the S-80 that include fixed width axles; virtual pivot boom assembly; faster elevation time; improved software design for smoother, more comfortable operation; and intuitive operator and serviceability features. Of these features the two that stood out where elevation time and smoother operation. The telescopic boom is able to reach 80 feet in 68 seconds and I can tell you first-hand the ride to the top is extremely smooth.Even when it had reached its max length there was no hard stop causing the unit to shake. The operations were also impressive in that you can maneuver with great accuracy and at infinite speeds for complete operator control. Click to read the full release.
