Genie teases launch of two articulated boom lifts
APEX line-up will include two latest-generation Z boom lifts
Genie has revealed that it will use APEX 2014 as a launch platform for two of its Z- articulated boom lifts.
The first next-gen model to be unveiled will be the Genie Z-62/40 – the successor to the Z-60/34 – whereas the second articulated boom lift has not yet been named.
The manufacturer will also use the Amsterdam trade show to showcase eight best-selling aerial work platforms (AWPs) and telehandlers from its existing line-up.
Designed for outdoor construction and industrial applications, the Genie Z-62/40 diesel articulating boom lift combines lifting versatility with zero tail swing. The unit offers enhanced outreach and ‘up-and-over’ positioning capabilities in comparison to its predecessor, and boasts a range of additional features.
For example, Genie’s Fast Mast system enables the boom to be moved from full height to below grade, and from below grade to full height, with the secondary boom fully raised. This will enable operators to ascend and descend more efficiently. Moreover, thanks to its two- or four-wheel steering options and Genie’s TraX track drive system, the Z-62/40’s designers say that it remains both highly manoeuvrable and smooth to operate even when working on muddy or uneven ground.
The unnamed machine, meanwhile, is an entirely new addition to Genie’s articulating boom lift range. Whilst its makers are remaining tight lipped with regards its specifications, they have revealed that it will be a compact and lightweight model with high ground clearance.
APEX 2014 will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 24-26 June.
