Genie supports ewp trainers

Monday 04 August 2014 @ 15:49

The NSW branch of the Elevating Work Platform Association (EWPA) staged a big boom product familiarization day for EWPA trainers. The event was hosted by John Glover, from Force Access at their Girraween maintenance facility.

Many members who offer training on boom lifts, don’t get the opportunity to experience the larger boom lifts. It was thought that a familiarization session on big booms would be a significant benefit to the trainers. The big boom lifts have controls and features that smaller booms under 90’ do not have, for example envelope control.

Genie was a willing supporter of the initiative by supplying the Genie® ZX™-135 boom lift for the day.

A product demonstration was delivered by Phil Mackenzie (Genie NSW Service Manager). His presentation highlighted the key features of the Genie ZX-135. These included the ease of set up with the X-Chassis and the range of inbuilt safety features.

Following the presentation, the EWPA trainers were then able to take to the ZX-135 lift and experience the big boom phenomenon for themselves.
