Genie distributor in Thailand Faster Enterprise has taken delivery of a 56.86m (180ft) working height Genie SX-180 telescopic boom lift, the first of its kind in the country.
Faster Enterprise was founded in Thailand in 1993 as an importer of machinery and equipment. In 2003, it expanded and became a distributor of MEWPs. “We have been receiving a lot of enquiries for booms that can go beyond 50m for the past year. That motivated us to purchase the Genie SX-180 lift,” said Worapat Bunluepanyadee, director of Faster Enterprise.
The Genie SX-180 has a lift capacity of 340 kg and a hydraulic platform with a 160° rotation. It comes with the Genie XChassis design that extends and retracts to provide stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport. It does not need over width or over heights permits when transported on a truck.
The SX-180 is already in demand; an international roof manufacturer needs the boom to lift workers to 50m.
