The European built version of the 65ft Genie S-65 XC straight telescopic boom lift is now ready for launch. This model will be sold throughout Europe, African and the Middle East.
The S-65 XC provides 16.51 metres of outreach with an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg. Outreach is around 15 metres with the 454kg maximum platform capacity. The unit is also capable of a below ground reach of 2.65 metres.
Deliveries of the European regional version of S-65 XCs are scheduled from October, with a prototype due to be show at Platformers’ Days in Hohenroda, Germany next week. The S-65 XC will also be the first telescopic XC model to be manufactured at the company’s plant in Umbertide, central Italy.
Product manager Zach Gilmor said: “The XC nomenclature lets customers know that with these are Genie Xtra Capacity booms which can reduce the number of lift cycles, as well as the amount of equipment customers need to get tools and materials to work areas at height. Doing more with a single unit saves time and increases productivity.”
