GENIE EXTENDS SUPER BOOM PRODUCT LINE WITH NEW SX-150
March 4, 2015 - Genie continues to round out its Super Boom product family by announcing the new Genie® SX-150 telescopic boom lift.
Offering uncompromising productivity, reliability and serviceability, this boom lift provides industry-leading capacity through the full working envelope. The new SX-150 boom lift is a fit for construction, maintenance, telecommunications, gas and oil refineries, chemical maintenance, and large utility applications.
“We are continuing to answer unmet customer needs by adding value to our Super Boom product line with the new SX-150. We consider this boom lift to be a ‘versatile workhorse’ that is tremendously durable for challenging environments,” said Karen Stash, Senior Director, Global Product Management and Marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “It’s a cost effective choice to reach challenging jobsite applications while still ensuring the quality and reliability Genie customers have come to expect.”
Offering excellent productivity benefits, the SX-150 boom lift reaches its full platform height of 151 ft in under three minutes. The boom offers four programmable height settings of 150 ft, 135 ft, 120 ft and 100 ft for rental versatility, and a 10 ft horizontal and vertical rotating jib allows for quick local repositioning of the platform. With a horizontal outreach of 80 ft, this boom also offers 70 ft of outreach at 120 ft of platform height. The SX-150 provides unrestricted ROM with a lift capacity of 750 lbs for a maximum of two people. A standard 7.5 kW on-board generator powers tools, including welders. Weighing 50,700 lbs, with a tail swing of 3 ft 6in and ground clearance of 15 in, the boom lift is transportable on a standard trailer; no over-size permits are required.
The boom uses an identical, field-proven chassis design to the SX-180 and ZX-135 boom lifts. External sensors and manifolds are protected under steel covers that are easily removed providing excellent service access. The unit uses a Deutz® Tier 4 final engine with no regen or DPF. The rotating jib worm drive reduces backlash while increasing reliability and offers 60 degrees of horizontal motion for increased working area. The SX-150 boom lift contains hydraulic hard lines wherever possible to increase durability while a four stage hydraulic filtration system ensures cleanliness.
“Genie® products are known for their serviceability, and the SX-150 boom lift is no exception. This product was designed with the service tech in mind,” said Adam Hailey, Booms Product Manager, Terex AWP. All manifolds offer easy wrench access while a swing out engine tray provides easy service for maintenance access. The boom features easy to reach hydraulic filters, with a drop-in, in-tank filter for easy cleaning and replacement, as well as bulk-headed hydraulic lines so hoses can be removed and replaced in one piece. A boom extend system features a cylinder and wire rope cartridge for fast service or replacement.
The Genie SX-150 boom lift will be available globally in April, 2015.
