GENIE INTRODUCING NEW Z™-62/40 ARTICULATING BOOM
March 9, 2015 - Genie recently introduced the new Z™-62/40 articulating boom lift at The Rental Show in New Orleans.
Modernized for exceptional jobsite performance, reliability and quality, this new model is an update of the Genie® Z™-60/34 articulating boom lift with significant modifications made to the key product specifications customers desire the most. The boom lift may be viewed at Genie booth 8235.
The Z-62/40 boom lift increases the working height from 60 ft 4 in to 61 ft 11 in and provides more horizontal outreach with a maximum of 40 ft 9 in compared to 36 ft 3 in in the previous model. It still delivers excellent up and over clearance of 26 ft 8in with a maximum lift capacity of 500 lbs. The new boom lift offers zero rear tail swing and minimal front turntable tail swing in the stowed position and has a below ground reach of as much as 5 ft 6 in. All of these features are available on a machine that weighs only 22,155 lbs and stows to the compact size of 24 ft and 10 in with the jib tucked.
“Updating to Tier 4 Final compliance allowed us to completely re-envision our Z-60 boom and make it more competitive in today’s marketplace,” said Karen Stash, Senior Director, Global Product Management and Marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “We have increased the height, outreach, transportability and key features while decreasing the overall weight of the product. This is sure to be a sought after machine with our customers.”
The Z-62/40 boom lift has a 5 ft jib with 135 degree range of motion. With its Genie Fast Mast™ boom system, operators can descend and retrieve needed tools or materials and quickly return to working height. The dual parallelogram lift linkage allows precise positioning of the platform on the jobsite for improved accuracy. The Z-62/40 boom lift features 4-wheel drive and full-time active oscillating axles. A proportional control system provides the users with smooth operation.
The boom was designed with serviceability in mind and has enhanced access to electrical and hydraulic service points. A swing out engine tray allows for easy access to either side of the engine assembly to quickly service the starter, exhaust or filters.
This new boom reflects the recently introduced Genie design language of an all-black chassis and an updated color scheme. The boom will also have improved ergonomic features, updated hinges and latches, and stiffer covers.
For rugged environments, the Z-62/40 boom lift is available with sand or rough terrain air or foam filled tires. By the end of 2015, the boom will be available with the exclusive Genie four-point TraX™ track drive system which provides improved terrainability and lower contact pressure for reduced damage to sensitive ground surfaces, as well as a four wheel steer option for greater maneuverability in tight spaces.
The new Z-62/40 boom lift is now available globally.
