Acme Lift adds Genie aerials to fleet
By Lindsey Anderson08 April 2011
Arizona-based Acme Lift Co., a wholesale rental company, has added Genie Z-80/60 self-propelled articulated aerial work platforms to its fleet.
"The addition of these new boom lifts to our worldwide re-rental fleet allows our customers to source from both JLG and Genie, the two leading manufacturers of aerial equipment," said Woody Weld, Acme Lift's chairman and chief executive officer.
Acme Lift's new diesel-fueled Z-80/60's feature a telescoping jib and 360-degree continuous turntable rotation for fast, easy positioning of the boom. The machine is designed with an innovative reverse-articulating secondary boom for 29 feet of up-and-over reach with zero front arm swing to reach applications inaccessible by a traditional jib.
The platform hydraulically rotates 160 degrees and stays level throughout the entire range of motion. The Z-80/60 also has four-wheel drive with full-time positive traction to handle rough ground conditions.
The machine has a maximum working height of 86 feet, reaches up to 60 feet, clears up and over objects up to 29 feet and has lift capacity of 500 pounds.
