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.
