The Ge­nie SX-135XC

self- pro­pelled tele­scopic boom lif t de­liv­ers in­dus­try- lead­ing out­reach and ca­pac­ity through­out the full work­ing en­ve­lope for in­cred­i­ble op­er­a­tional ac­ces­si­bil­ity, prom­ises Terex. The first model in the new Ge­nie Xtra Ca­pac­ity ( XC) fam­ily, the Ge­nie SX135XC boom lif t is packed with fea­tures, in­clud­ing 27.4 m of out­reach, 300kg un­re­stricted lif t ca­pac­ity, the abil­ity to work 6m be­low grade and a 3.94m x 4.11m com­pact foot­print. “With 3m more out­reach and 32 per­cent more ca­pac­ity than a typ­i­cal self- pro­pelled boom of this size, the Ge­nie SX-135XC boom lif t is ideal for rental cus­tomers work­ing on chal­leng­ing job site ap­pli­ca­tions thanks to its unique upand- over style ca­pa­bil­ity to nav­i­gate ob­sta­cles at height,” says Brad Lawrence, Ge­nie Gen­eral Man­ager Aus­tralia.


Built to safely and quickly lif t op­er­a­tors to the full plat­form height of 41.15m in 2.5 min­utes and drive en­abled at full height, the Ge­nie SX-135XC boom lif t will po­si­tion work­ers and gear ex­actly where they are needed. It is pow­er­ful enough to work on most job sites with a Deutz TD2011LO4i 74hp (55kW) diesel en­gine with four-wheel drive and four-wheel steer ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

The Ge­nie SX-135XC boom’s in­no­va­tive de­sign in­cludes a work­ing en­ve­lope ideal for the most extreme ac­cess jobs, with a work­ing height of 43.15m and a hor­i­zon­tal reach of 27. 43m.This means it of­fers 3m greater out­reach than any other self- pro­pelled boom on the mar­ket.


The Ge­nie SX-135XC boom also boasts ex­cep­tional range of mo­tion with a 5.48m to 9.14m 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 – 6m of reach be­low grade.

“To ac­com­mo­date the Ge­nie SX-135XC boom lif t’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.


De­signed with trans­porta­bil­ity in mind, the Ge­nie SX-135XC boom fea­tures the new Ge­nie mini XChas­sis axle de­sign, which ex­tends and re­tracts the axles to and from the stowed po­si­tion with a more com­pact foot­print: 2.49m x 4.11m re­tracted or 3.94m x 4.11m ex­tended. This pro­vides both sta­bil­ity on the job and a nar­row pro­file for trans­port. “Sim­i­lar in de­sign to the full-size XChas­sis ex­pand­ing axle on the Ge­nie SX-150, SX-180 and ZX-135 booms, the mini XChas­sis sys­tem boasts twothirds the foot­print of the full- size ver­sion for ex­cel­lent ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity on and around con­fined job sites with­out dis­rupt­ing peo­ple or traf­fic,” says Lawrence.

Weigh­ing 21,727 kg (47,900 lb), with an over­all trans­port length of 13.3m, a tail swing of 1.14m and ground clear­ance of 0.38m, the Ge­nie SX-135XC boom lif t is trans­portable on a stan­dard trailer; no over-width or over-height per­mits are re­quired.


With the abil­ity to per­form a wider range of heav­ier lif t and ac­cess tasks on rough ter­rain us­ing a sin­gle ma­chine, the new Ge­nie fam­ily of XC boom lif ts, in­clud­ing the Ge­nie SX-135XC model, of­fer a dual lif t ca­pac­ity of an un­re­stricted 300kg and a re­stricted 454kg. 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 2.44m tri- en­try plat­form with side-swing gate.

The Xtra Ca­pac­ity ( XC) 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 over­load sense func­tion­al­i­ties are com­pen­sated for on all Ge­nie XC boom mod­els by in­creased plat­form load ca­pac­ity, in­creas­ing these booms’ util­i­sa­tion in heavy-load ap­pli­ca­tions com­pared to units with more re­stric­tive plat­form load lim­its,” he says.

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