When it comes to tele­scopic and ar­tic­u­lat­ing booms, Ge­nie has well and truly con­sol­i­dated its po­si­tion in the Aus­tralian and New Zealand con­struc­tion and rental mar­kets. Ac­cord­ing to lo­cal dis­trib­u­tor Young­man Richard­son & Co, in­no­va­tion and re­li­a­bil­ity are the key to the pop­u­lar­ity of the Ge­nie Ac­cess Equip­ment range.

“Since the launch of the Ge­nie SX-135 Xtra Ca­pac­ity (XC), in­ter­est in this type of boom lift has in­creased ap­pre­cia­bly,” says Young­man Richard­son & Co sales direc­tor, Phil Fair­field.

“Feed­back from cus­tomers over re­cent years has di­rected Ge­nie’s en­gi­neer­ing ef­forts to­wards al­low­ing for more peo­ple and equip­ment to fit in the plat­form. The lat­est Ge­nie SX-85 XC boom pro­vides the so­lu­tion with a plat­form ca­pac­ity of 450kg, enough for an ex­tra per­son and more equip­ment and ma­te­ri­als.”

Com­ing in 2019 will be new ad­di­tions to the range of Ge­nie XC ma­chines. The next model to be launched will be the Ge­nie S-65 XC boom lift fol­lowed by the Ge­nie Z-45 XC boom lift.

With the abil­ity to per­form a wider range of heav­ier lift tasks on con­struc­tion and in­dus­trial job sites, the Ge­nie tele­scopic S-85 XC boom now of­fers a dual lift ca­pac­ity of 300kg un­re­stricted and 454kg re­stricted.

“New to this gen­er­a­tion of tele­scopic booms, the Ge­nie XC mod­els fea­ture au­to­matic en­ve­lope con­trol,” Fair­field says.

“This is the abil­ity to au­to­mat­i­cally re­tract as the booms reach their op­er­at­ing en­ve­lope, al­low­ing for sim­ple plat­form po­si­tion­ing and an en­hanced op­er­a­tor’s ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The Ge­nie S-85 XC is also equipped with a load sense cell that con­tin­u­ously checks the weight in the plat­form and lim­its the op­er­at­ing en­ve­lope to match the load chart while boast­ing the abil­ity to do zero load field cal­i­bra­tions.”

The Ge­nie S-85 XC boom also boasts an ex­panded work­ing zone be­cause of a new chas­sis tilt sen­sor in­cor­po­rated into the ma­chine’s func­tion.

“This unique chas­sis tilt-sens­ing tech­nol­ogy gives op­er­a­tors ac­cess to dif­fer­ent ranges of mo­tion based on the chas­sis an­gle. And it’s en­gi­neered to au­to­mat­i­cally cut out spe­cific lift and drive func­tions of the ma­chines when the tilt ac­ti­va­tion set­ting is reached,” Fair­field says.

The model also fea­tures the new Ge­nie Lift Power 7kW gen­er­a­tor so­lu­tion to pro­vide re­li­able power so­lu­tions for cus­tomers world­wide.

The first model in the new Ge­nie Xtra Ca­pac­ity fam­ily, the Ge­nie SX-135 XC boom lift, is packed with fea­tures, in­clud­ing 27.43 me­tres of out­reach, 300kg un­re­stricted lift ca­pac­ity, the abil­ity to work six me­tres be­low grade, and a 3.94 x 4.11-me­tre com­pact foot­print.

“With three me­tres more out­reach and 32 per cent more ca­pac­ity than a typ­i­cal self-pro­pelled boom of this size, the Ge­nie SX-135 XC boom lift is ideal for rental and struc­tural steel cus­tomers work­ing on chal­leng­ing job-site ap­pli­ca­tions,” says Fair­field.

“Thanks to its unique up-and-over style ca­pa­bil­ity, this model is eas­ily able to nav­i­gate ob­sta­cles at height.”

To ac­com­mo­date the Ge­nie SX-135 XC boom lift’s in­creased ca­pac­ity and range of mo­tion, a new hy­drauli­cally tele­scop­ing jib-ex­tend de­sign has been used to han­dle all of the up, over, out, and be­low tasks. And when the job is done, the jib can to be stowed un­der the pri­mary boom for ease of trans­port.

De­signed with trans­porta­bil­ity in mind, the

Ge­nie SX-135 XC boom fea­tures the new mini XChas­sis axle de­sign, which ex­tends and re­tracts the axles. The Ge­nie SX-135 XC model of­fers dual lift ca­pac­ity, giv­ing the abil­ity to also work with up to three peo­ple on board while still leav­ing room for tools and job-site ma­te­ri­als.
