Genie continues to beef up its Super Boom product family with the announcement that the new Genie® SX-150 telescopic boom lift is set to hit the market very soon.

Offering uncompromising productivity, reliability and serviceability, this boom lift provides industry-leading capacity with a full working envelope. The new SX-150 boom lift is a great fit for construction, maintenance, telecommunications, gas and oil refineries, chemical maintenance, and large utility applications.

“We are continuing to answer customer needs by adding value to our Super Boom product line with the new SX-150 boom lift. We consider this boom lift to be a ‘versatile workhorse’ that is tremendously durable for challenging environments,” said Brad Lawrence, General Manager Australia, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “It’s a cost effective choice to reach challenging jobsite applications, while still ensuring the quality and reliability Genie customers have come to expect.”

Offering excellent productivity benefits, the SX-150 boom lift reaches its full platform height of 46.33 m (152 ft) in under three minutes. The boom offers four programmable height settings of 45.72 m (150 ft), 41.15 m (135 ft), 36.58 m (120 ft) and 30.48 m (100 ft) for rental versatility, and a 3.05 m (10 ft) horizontal and vertical rotating jib allows for quick local repositioning of the platform. With a horizontal outreach of 24.38 m (80 ft), this boom also offers 21.34 m (70 ft) of outreach at 36.58 m (120 ft) of platform height. The SX-150 boom lift provides unrestricted range of motion with a lift capacity of 340 kg (750 lbs) for a maximum of two people.

The boom uses an identical, field-proven chassis design as employed on the SX-180 and ZX-135 boom lifts. External sensors and manifolds are protected under steel covers that are easily removed providing excellent service access. The unit uses a Deutz® Tier 4 interim engine. The rotating jib worm drive reduces backlash while increasing reliability and offers 60 degrees of horizontal motion for increased working area. The SX-150 boom lift contains hydraulic hard lines wherever possible to increase durability while a hydraulic filtration system ensures cleanliness.

“Genie® products are known for their serviceability, and the SX-150 boom lift is no exception. This product was designed with the service technician in mind,” said Lawrence.

The Genie SX-150 boom lift will be available in Australia by the end of Q1 2016. Call your local sales representative for more information.
