Genie to produce S-65 XC telescopic boom in Italy for EMEAR markets
The S-65 XC boom offers a dual lift capacity of 300 kg unrestricted and 454 kg restricted to work with up to three people onboard
Genie will be producing the new S-65 XC telescopic boom lift in its factory of Umbertide, Italy, for the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR) region. With a maximum working height of 21.81 m (71 ft), this new model is the latest addition to the expanding Genie Xtra Capacitiy (XC) boom lift range.
The S-65 XC boom offers a dual lift capacity of 300 kg (660 lb) unrestricted and 454 kg (1,000 lb) restricted to work with up to three people onboard while still leaving room for tools and jobsite materials.
Deliveries of the new Genie S-65 XC boom lifts are scheduled as from October 2018.
Zach Gilmor, Genie Product Manager, Terex AWP, said: “The XC nomenclature lets customers know that with these Genie Xtra Capacity models they can do more with a single XC unit than with a standard machine. These Genie XC models carry more load — 300 kg (660 lb) unrestricted and 454 kg (1,000 lb) restricted capacity — than their predecessors.”
New to this generation of telescopic booms, as applies to other Genie XC booms, the S-65 XC boom lift features automatic envelope control. This is the ability to automatically retract as the booms reach their operating envelope, allowing for simple platform positioning and an enhanced operator experience. It is also equipped with a load sense cell that continuously checks the weight in the platform and limits the operating envelope to match the load chart, as well as boasting the ability to perform zero load field calibrations.
The Genie S-65 XC boom lift also offers an expanded working zone with a new chassis tilt sensor incorporated into the machines’ function. This unique chassis tilt sensing technology gives operators access to different ranges of motion based on the chassis angle.
“Equipped with this new technology, this new Genie XC booms not only carries more load than ever before but is also be able to maximize access to hard-to-reach work areas on challenging jobsites,” adds Gilmor.
Like other Genie telescopic XC boom lifts, the S-65 XC also features the Lift Power generator solution. This optional system includes a dedicated hydraulic circuit, a right-sized breaker and no pressure switch to run the unit reliably, which allows the power to lift and drive during operation. To provide reliable power solution, the CE compliant Genie Lift Power system is available with 3 kW power output and is quickly convertible from the European 230V/50Hz power system to the 115V/50Hz UK system..
