Delegates meet with Terex and test out an elevated aerial boom.

          In Watertown, SD, Tiffany holds a mini flashlight with her teeth as she inspects an insulated aerial boom. “This will be going to China,” she announces. “When the aerial booms leave here, they spend about eight weeks on the ocean until they arrive in China.” The device she is referring to is an elevating work platform that lifts electrical linemen up from the ground to electrified ‘live’ power lines for maintenance.
