Genie S-85 XC boom lifts to new heights
Genie has launched the S-85 XC boom, an access platform designed for heavy-lifting operations
The Genie S-85 XC boom has 27.91m working height with 22.71m of outreach, with an unrestricted lift capacity of 330kg and an unrestricted capacity of 454kg, allowing three people to work from the boom with additional room for tools and materials.
The XC design on the boom lift also includes a 1.83m dual entry or 2.4m tri-entry platform with side-swing gate to make it easy to get people, tools and job site materials in and out of the basket.
“The XC nomenclature lets customers know that the new Genie S-85 XC model complies with the overload restriction guidelines for Australian AS 1418.10 standards,” Genie national sales manager Kurt Kinder says. “And thanks to updates in the design and technology of these new booms, these Genie XC models can carry more load — 300kg (660-lb) unrestricted and 454kg (1000-lb) restricted capacity — than their predecessors. Genie XC booms are designed to perform.”
The Genie XC models feature automatic envelope control, which allows the boom to automatically retract as the boom reaches its operating envelope, making platform positioning easier. The S-85XC is also equipped with loadsensing technology that continuously checks the weight on the platform and limits the machine’s operating envelope accordingly.
The new boom also boasts an expanded working zone thanks to a new chassis tilt sensor which will allow the boom to get into hard-toreach spots safely.
Tilt-sensing technology allows different ranges of motion based on the chassis angle.
