A PROCESS OF EVOLUTIONARY IMPROVEMENT IS A KEY GUIDING PRINCIPLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW GENIE PRODUCTS. EACH NEW MODEL IS DESIGNED TO BUILD UPON THE STRENGTHS OF THE ONE PRECEDING IT – AND THIS IS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE NEW GENIE® Z™-62/40 ARTICULATING BOOM LIFT, WHICH REPLACES THE GENIE® Z™-60/34.
Brent Markwell, Genie Territory Sales Manager NSW & ACT said: “The new model, offers features and key product specifications that customers ask for the most. It’s a compact and hardworking unit, offering outstanding vertical and horizontal reach, manoeuvrability, working envelope and servicing. In all of these areas, the new Genie® Z™-62/40 boom lift provides significant enhancements over the model it replaces.”
The Genie® Z™-62/40 boom lift has a working height of 20.87 m (67 ft 11 in), up from 20.39 m (66 ft 4 in) on the old model. It provides more horizontal outreach with a maximum of 12.42 m (40 ft 9 in) compared to 11.05 m (36 ft 3 in) previously. In addition, the platform can be lowered to 2.26 m (7 ft 5 in) below ground level. This boom lift also delivers excellent up and over clearance of 8.13 m (26 ft 8 in), and has a 1.52 m (5ft) jib with increased vertical rotation of 135 degrees.
Brent said, “The Genie Z-62/40 boom lift has a larger working envelope than its predecessor. This will help reduce rental companies’ inventory costs, because previously they would have needed to buy a significantly larger and more expensive machine to achieve the extended reach and capabilities of this new model”.
Other significant benefits of the Genie Z™-62/40 boom lift are that it’s very compact and highly manoeuvrable. Weighing just 10,886 kg (23,997 lbs), the Genie Z™-62/40 boom lift has zero tail swing and minimal front turntable tail swing, and stows to a compact length of 7.58 m (24 ft and 10.5 in) with the jib tucked.
Its inside turning radius is a tight 2.36 m – down from 3.04 m on the previous Z™- 60/34 boom lift model. In addition, the unit has outstanding gradeability, being able to climb gradients of up to 45%.
Another feature of this machine, particularly in terms of ease of use and productivity, is its Genie Fast Mast™ boom system. With this system, operators can descend and retrieve needed tools or materials and quickly return to working height. Also, the dual parallelogram lift linkage allows precise positioning of the platform on the jobsite for improved accuracy.
Finally, the Genie Z™-62/40 boom lift has improved serviceability. A swingout engine tray allows for easy access to either side of the engine assembly to quickly service the starter, exhaust or filters. This helps reduce service costs and down time to help maximize ROI.
“The Genie Z™-62/40 boom lift is sure to be a sought-after machine with our customers in a wide range of industries, including construction, mining, petrochemical, telecommunications installation and maintenance. We’re very happy to make it available to them,” Brent said.
