Genie’s new S-80 high float (HF) and S-85 HF telescopic boom lifts are designed to perform heavy-lifting tasks on sensitive ground, such as sand and turf.

Engineered to “float” on soft or delicate surfaces, the Genie S-80 and S-85 HF boom lifts protect softer surfaces that could be damaged by the more aggressive tread of regular rough terrain tires.
