Terex Utilities Technical Service and Support Department Launches TechTips YouTube Channel

Watertown, S.D. – (April 20, 2023) – The Terex Utilities Technical Service and Support Department began adding videos this year to accompany content in its library of nearly 200 Tech Tips. At least seven new videos have been added in the first quarter of 2023, with more to come throughout the year. 

“Live demonstrations of the task provide additional clarity for technicians that need to follow specific processes when troubleshooting or repairing Terex bucket trucks and digger derricks,” said Kenny Vlasman, Customer Service Manager. “This also gives our highly qualified technicians a chance to share their knowledge in a no-nonsense, practical way,” he added.  

All videos will be archived on Terex’s new Tech Tips YouTube channel @techtips2859. Fleet managers and technicians are encouraged to subscribe so they are notified when a new video is added.
