Terex boom fails/ recalls


Active Member
Terex cheaps out on every thing they buy up and make their own. A few buddies of mine work for H. One and they started buying "Tere-Flex" booms because they were cheaper and a levelling rod broke and dropped a guy right into hot wires. All these brand new booms now have to go for weekly inspections! They said its back to Altec from now on. Its shame you guys are going through all this BS with them, I would be wild!
I have ran terex for 20+ years I think hydro failure was operator error, I have never seen a levelling rod fail , my opinion is someone caught a stub or wire and loaded rod .or drove with boom flipped out back between setups which is exactly what hydro one does
