Terex Hi-Ranger SCM Series aerial devices designed with utility operators in mind

Designed with utility operators in mind, the Terex Hi-Ranger SCM48, SCM50, and SCM55 overcenter material handling aerial devices feature large, open bed space, low travel height, and easy maintenance. The Hi-Ranger SCM Series devices are ideal for investor-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives and power districts, and municipality applications.

The side-by-side lower boom configuration on the SCM Series provides overall height under 11 feet (3.3 meters) on a 40-inch (101.6-cm) frame for greater mobility. The low profile of the SCM series allows for low platform stow near the truck centerline to provide clearance of overhead obstructions during travel. The lower boom cylinder design also allows for a large amount of open truck bed space that operators can use for tool storage and transportation.

Field-proven, the patented Terex Tri-Link Elbow offers a low-maintenance design on the SCM Series. The Tri-Link Elbow mechanical feature provides easy access to greasable bushings and bearings, needs no lift chains or cables, and does not require a mandatory overhaul during the truck's lifetime.

All models have a gross vehicle weight rating of 31,000 lb (14,061 kg). The SCM48 has a 48.0-ft (14.6-m) bottom of platform height, a 53.0-ft (16.2-m) working height with a 39.3-ft (12.0-m) overcenter side reach, and a non-overcenter side reach of 34.8 feet (10.6 m) at 110°.

The SCM50 offers a 50.0-ft (15.2-m) bottom of platform height, a 55.0-ft (16.8-m) working height, a 41.2-ft (12.6-m) side reach overcenter, and a non-overcenter side reach of 36.2 feet (11.0 m) at 110°.

The SCM55 is designed with a 55.0-ft (16.8-m) bottom of platform height, a 60-ft (18.3-m) working height, and a 46.1-ft (14.1-m) side reach overcenter, and it has a 39.5-ft (12.0-m) non-overcenter side reach at 110°.

The SCM Series come standard with a side-mount, one-person, 700-lb (317.5-kg) capacity platform, a minimized control hose loop, and standardized controls. Dual platforms are an option on these units. These aerial devices also have a category “C” rating per ANSI A92.2, 200° of upper boom articulation and 110° of lower boom articulation, non-compensated boom design, as well as a full-pressure open-center hydraulic system. Optional lower boom articulations of 100˚ and 120˚ are available.

The Terex HyPower Hybrid System is an option for the SCM Series models. It allows operators to save fuel, reduce noise, and increase efficiency.
