Genie SX-135 XC Boasts Expanded Outreach and Exceptional Range of Motion

Wednesday 12 April 2017 @ 14:09

The Genie SX-135 XC self-propelled telescopic boom lift is going where no boom lift has gone before by delivering industry-leading outreach and capacity throughout the full working envelope for incredible operational accessibility.

The first model in the new Genie Xtra Capacity™ (XC) family, the Genie SX-135 XC boom lift is packed with features, including 27.43 m (90 ft) of outreach, 300 kg (660 lb) unrestricted lift capacity, the ability to work 6 m (19 ft 8 in) below grade and a 3.94 m (12 ft 11 in) x 4.11 m (13 ft 11 in) compact footprint.

Ideal for challenging job sites

With 3 m (10 ft) more outreach and 32% more capacity than a typical self-propelled boom of this size, the Genie SX-135 XC boom lift is ideal for rental customers working on challenging job site applications thanks to its unique up-and-over style capability to navigate obstacles at height, according to Brad Lawrence, Genie General Manager Australia.

Enhanced Versatility and Flexibility

The new Genie SX-135 XC boom also boasts exceptional range of motion with a 5.48 m (18 ft) to 9.14 m (30 ft) Telescoping Jib-Extend™ jib, which offers operators up and over capabilities as well as 125° of jib articulation, boasting 55° down to 70° up of vertical articulation. The working envelope is also increased with this boom’s extended reach out and down capability — 6 m (19 ft 8 in) of reach below grade.

“To accommodate the Genie SX-135 XC boom lift’s increased capacity and range of motion, Genie engineers developed a new hydraulically Telescoping Jib-Extend design that is robust enough to handle all of the up, over, out and below tasks rental customers need to do. And when the job is done, the jib is designed to be stowed under the primary boom for ease of transport,” says Lawrence.

Xtra Capacity Is Standard

With the ability to perform a wider range of heavier lift and access tasks on rough terrain using a single machine, the new Genie family of XC boom lifts, including the Genie SX-135 XC model, offer a dual lift capacity of an unrestricted 300 kg (660 lb) and a restricted 454 kg (1,000 lb). This gives your customers the ability to work with up to three people onboard while still leaving room for tools and job-site materials. The new XC design includes a standard 2.44 m (8 ft) tri-entry platform with side-swing gate.

The Xtra Capacity (XC) also name lets rental customers know that this new boom complies with the overload restriction guidelines in the Australian AS 1418.10 standards. Lawrence notes that all Genie XC models include a new low-maintenance load sense cell technology that monitors the weight on the platform and disables function if the load exceeds the platform load limit.

The new Genie SX-135 XC boom shares design, parts, accessories and serviceability benefits, including easy access to crucial service points, in common with all Genie products. The Genie SX-135 XC will be on display and available for sale at HIRE17 Convention in May 2017.
