Boom lift goes where no boom has gone before
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.
SPEC’D FOR PRODUCTIVITY
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.
ENHANCED DESIGN ADDS TO JI B’S VERSATILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
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.
ON, OFF AND AROUND JOB SITES
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.
XTRA CAPACITY I S STANDARD
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.
