Built on an all-electric International eMV chassis, the Terex EV Aerial Device is the first all-electric hydraulic utility bucket truck offered by the company. The Terex EV Aerial Device comes standard with a full-pressure, open-center hydraulic system, a side-mount two-person platform, multiplexed system controller with LCD screen and customizable settings and alerts.

“By combining SmartPTO technology with the International electric chassis, Terex Utilities was able to bring this bucket truck solution to the electric utilities two years ahead of industry projections,” said Joe Caywood, director of marketing. “We are giving electric utilities a solution now to help meet their electrification and sustainability goals. Many utilities have sustainability goals with 50 percent electric achievement by 2025 and 100 percent electric by 2030. This solution can accelerate plans for electrification of their fleets.”

The Terex Optima 55 ft aerial mounted on the International eMV Series is a 60 ft working height aerial commonly used for electric distribution line work. It has a 135-mile driving range and the ability to operate the bucket for a full workday on a single charge.

“We have been working on green solutions for more than a decade,” added Caywood. “During that time, we have learned what works and what doesn’t. It’s exciting to see these investments come to fruition with an all-electric bucket truck that is robust and designed to meet the specific needs of utility applications.”
