Terex Utilities Hosts Annual Service School | Construction News

To keep mechanics and service technicians up to date on the latest Terex technologies and advancements, Terex Utilities hosted its annual service school June 9-11 in Watertown, S.D. At this year’s event, the Terex service department hosted 71 people from 38 utility companies, some from as far away as Australia.

The 2015 service school's experienced Terex instructors taught the attendees tips, tricks, and techniques for maintaining utility trucks and support equipment.

During the 3-day event, participants rotated through a series of stations that incorporated Terex utility equipment and training aids to educate attendees about the most current maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair procedures for the company’s digger derricks and aerial devices.

“Providing an innovative hands-on approach creates an atmosphere where participants feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their experiences with the group. This school included in-depth experiences with various units, components and systems,” says, Ken Vlasman, customer service manager, Terex Utilities. “Many of our attendees were from their companies’ service departments, and they range from brand-new employees to experienced hydraulic and heavy equipment service technicians.”

For mechanics and service technicians not able to attend the Watertown event, Terex Utilities will host service schools on September 9-10 in White House, Tenn., September 15-17 in Waukesha, Wis., and October 13-15 in Thomasville, Pa.

In addition to these in-person training events, customers can request customized training at their own facilities or take advantage of Terex Utilities’ online training university. For more information, visit: www.terex.com/utilities/en/service-support/training/index.htm
