Terex’s Genie to introduce high reach platform
06 November 2014
Genie will also be exhibiting its latest access equipment on Terex’s Bauma China stand, including the introduction of the SX-180 telescopic boom lift to the country. Featuring a 54.9 m vertical reach and 24.4 m horizontal reach, the new model has been designed for high-reach access jobs.
It boasts a 2.44 m by 0.91 m platform with a 340 kg capacity, and also features a retractable X-Chassis for both stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport.
The boom lift’s stowed dimensions are 3.05 m high, 2.5 m wide and 12.98 m long. Genie said the 24,494 kg machine required no over width or over height permits allowing it to be easily transported on a truck.
Scott Krieger, senior product manager for booms and telehandlers at Terex Aerial Work Platforms said, “This X-chassis design is also used on our new Genie ZX-135 articulating boom. This allows our big booms to share many design features providing parts and operating commonality.”
