The new machine - unveiled last September – is mounted on a compact X chassis and provides a working height of 43 metres and an outreach of up to 27.4 metres, whilst maximum platform capacity is 454kg, while unrestricted capacity is 300kg. The new model adds to a big Genie boom lift fleet that includes the 135ft Genie Z-135/70, 150ft SX-150 and 180ft Genie SX-180.
Chief executive Poul Steiness said: “When customers turn to us for big stick boom lifts, what they often need is horizontal outreach. The extra capacity Genie SX-135 XC boom marks the most significant breakthrough in stick booms that the industry has seen more than a decade. Construction has greatly evolved over recent years. Aerial access involves increasing amounts of tools as well as carrying more materials, and in today’s market, we consider the increased capacity of the SX-135 XC boom as an absolute ‘must have’.”
“By reducing the number of trips from ground to the working height with tools and materials and the precise weight control, we are certain that our customers will find that they have a lot to gain with this new super boom model in terms of productivity and jobsite safety.”
