Electric boom launch from Genie
By Euan Youdale22 February 2016
Genie has launched the Z-60/37DC all-electric Z-boom lift at the Rental Show in Atlanta, USA, taking place 22-24 February.
Key features include zero emissions and full workday operation on one charge and is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, such as industrial plants, shopping precincts, convention centres and construction sites. It can be fully charged from an 110V wall power supply in under 14 hours.
The Z-60/37DC model is Genie’s first all-electric 66 ft (20 m) articulating boom and shares many similarities in terms of performance and components with our popular with the existing Z-62/40 boom model, and this is intentional.
Adam Hailey, product manager, Terex AWP, said, “We thoughtfully designed this boom to take advantage of the strengths and history of our boom lift product line, to offer customers the right equation of maximized range of motion, real four-wheel drive abilities, quiet performance, energy efficiency, jobsite versatility and cost effectiveness. Weighing more than 5,000 lb (2,268 kg) less than the Genie Z-62/40 lift, the new Genie Z-60/37DC boom enhances the efficiency of this zero emissions model’s electric system.”
Delivering 59 ft 7 in (18 m) of platform height, 36 ft 7 in (11.15 m) of horizontal outreach and 24 ft 3 in (7.4 m) of up-and-over clearance, the Z-60/37DC is equipped with a jib that provides a high 70° up and 65° down range of motion, coupled with 160° of platform rotation.
The platform is available in 6 ft (1.8 m) or 8 ft (2.4 m) versions with a capacity of 500 lb (227 kg) to provide two people access to the entire working envelope. Both platforms offer a side entry swing gate and front sliding mid rail as standard. The 8 ft (2.4 m) platform comes with an additional side sliding mid rail opposite the gate, for a total of three entry points.
