Genie Introduces Electric Articulating Boom Lift for North America

Genie introduced its first entirely new compact, lightweight electric Z-boom lift to the North American market  last month at The Rental Show. Designed for both indoor and outdoor maintenance applications, the new Genie Z-33/18 boom lift is suited for tasks on sensitive surfaces where space or floor load is restricted.

The articulating boom lift model weighs  8,080 lbs. and offers a ground clearance of 5.9 in. Ideal for applications on sensitive surfaces inside and outside, the Z-33/18 boom lift includes features to help increase efficiency on jobsites where space is tight. Key features include solid non-marking tires, long working cycles due to low-consumption AC drive transmission, a tight turning radius, the ability to drive at full height, and the Genie FastMast boom system that shortens ground-to-top lifting time.

“This is a completely new Genie model designed to offer a great combination of lightweight, compact dimensions and ‘up-and-over’ lift capabilities combined with powerful drive motors,” said Karen Stash, senior director, global product management and marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “It is truly a new generation of Genie boom lift that offers features and capabilities suited for customers all over the world.”

Featuring a compact 6'3" wheelbase providing a gradeability of up to 30%, the Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom lift offers a platform height of 32'10", a horizontal reach of 18'3", and an up-and-over clearance of 14'1". The 3'10" by 2'6" platform supports weights of up to 440 lbs.

To make transport easier, this compact unit’s boom stows down to only 4'11" in width and 13'8" in length. Drive speed is 3.7 mph; powering the unit are 48V DC 315 Ah batteries. Mechanical switches are protected within the boom to avoid damage.

Distinguishing the next generation of Genie products from previous models, the  Z-33/18 boom lift also includes the new Genie product design to combine a fresh new look and feel with improved ergonomic design features.

This new Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom model will be available in North America in July 2015.
