New All Electric Genie Z-60/37DC Boom
A new all-electric articulating boom has been launched by Genie at The Rental Show 21 – 24 February, Atlanta USA, the model is designed for clean operation and quiet, powerful performance.
Terex AWP has introduced its first entirely all-electric Genie 20.16m (65ft 7in) Z-boom lift. The new all-electric Genie Z-60/37DC articulating boom combines the benefits of quieter, environment-friendly operation with the four-wheel drive performance of a traditional diesel-powered machine. Offering the advantages of zero emissions and full workday operation on just one charge, the Genie Z-60/37DC boom is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications such as industrial plants, malls, convention centres and construction sites. As a result of its fast re-charging capabilities that provide full charge from a 120v/240v/110v wall power supply in under 14 hours, operators can use this machine every day.
Adam Hailey, product manager at Terex AWP says, “The Genie Z-60/37DC model is our first all-electric 20.16m (65ft 7in) articulating boom. It shares a lot of similarities in terms of performance and components with our popular articulating Genie Z-62/40 boom model, and this is intentional. We thoughtfully designed this boom to take advantage of the strengths and history of our boom lift product line, to offer customers the right equation of maximised range of motion, real four-wheel drive abilities, quiet performance, energy efficiency, jobsite versatility and cost effectiveness. Weighing more than 2268kg (5000lb) less than the Z-62/40 lift, the new Genie Z-60/37DC boom enhances the efficiency of this zero emission model’s electric system. This means that the Z-60/37DC lift has full workday performance while accessing many indoor and outdoor work environments that other models cannot.”
Delivering 18.16m (59ft 7in) of platform height, 11.15m (36 ft 7in) of horizontal outreach and 7.4m (24ft 3in) of up-and-over clearance, the Genie Z-60/37DC boom lift offers the capabilities of a true articulating boom. Equipped with a jib that provides a high 70deg up and 65deg down range of motion, coupled with 160° of platform rotation, operators benefit from refined positioning power at the boom tip.
The platform on this new all-electric articulating Genie boom machine is available in 1.8m (6ft) or 2.4m (8ft) versions with a capacity of 227kg (500lb) to provide two people access to the entire working envelope. Both platforms offer a side entry swing gate and front sliding mid rail as standard. The 2.4m (8ft) platform comes with an additional side sliding mid rail opposite the gate, for a total of three entry points.
Also notable is the Genie FastMast system – an efficient feature that enables the boom to be moved from full height to below grade, and back with just one boom function. With the secondary fully elevated, the primary can reach all the way to the ground and then back to full height – the fastest way to 20.16m (65ft 7in) working height. Drivable at full height, the Genie Z-60/37DC boom lift is also equipped with a dual parallel linkage design so operators can vertically track a building by simply raising or lowering the secondary boom.
Its rugged four-wheel drive design, gives the machine “go anywhere” capabilities, with fully sealed AC drive motors that can still perform while submerged in up to 91cm (3ft) of water, it is also able to go 25% faster and climb slopes better than typical diesel-powered units.
Engineered with a proven drive and oscillating axle system, the Genie Z-60/37DC boom lift performs similarly to other Genie rough-terrain machines, such as the Genie Z-62/40 and S-60 boom lifts. It is equipped standard with all-terrain, non-marking tyres that give operators the flexibility to work in interior and outdoor applications, making it one of the first machines on a jobsite — and one of the last to leave.
The Genie Z-60/37DC combines a narrow footprint with the advantage of a low tail swing of 58cm (23in). Combining a low machine weight of 7530kg (16,600 lb) with the advantages of a 8m (26ft 9in) stowed length, the Genie Z-60/37DC articulating boom is also as easy to transport on a standard truck, as it is simple and smooth to operate.
The all-electric Genie Z-60/37DC articulating boom is available globally.
