New “Versatile Workhorse” provides full capacity in complete working envelope

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA (Nov 23, 2015) – Genie continues to round out its Super Boom product family by announcing the new Genie® SX-150 telescopic boom lift.

Offering uncompromising productivity, reliability and serviceability, this boom lift provides industry-leading capacity through the full working envelope. The new SX-150 boom lift is a 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. 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. A standard 7.5 kW on-board generator powers tools.

Weighing 22997 kg (50,700 lbs), with a tail swing (axles extended) of 1.07 m (3 ft 6 in) and ground clearance of 0.38 m (15 in), the boom lift is transportable on a standard trailer; no over-size permits are required.

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.

All manifolds offer easy wrench access while a swing out engine tray provides easy service or maintenance access. The boom features easy to reach hydraulic filters, with a drop-in return filter for easy cleaning and replacement, as well as bulkhead mount hydraulic lines, so hoses can be removed and replaced in one piece. The boom extend system features a cylinder and wire rope cartridge for fast service or replacement.

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