Genie Rolls Out Revamped 105-ft. and 125-ft. Telescopic Boom Lifts | Construction News


Genie has updated its S-105 and S-125 telescopic boom lifts by introducing the new SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC, which are engineered to work in more applications that require higher capacities.

With industry-leading dual 660-lb. / 1,000-lb. lifting capacity and a smooth operating envelope, these new XC telescopic boom lifts are perfect for heavy lifting in the construction and maintenance of stadia and sports arenas, gas and oil refineries, and industrial and telecommunications applications.

“Priced right, the new Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC booms will be competitive in local markets while increasing customers’ ability to get more work done on every project,” says Adam Hailey, Genie director of product marketing, Terex AWP. “We packed them with performance-enhancing features, including 80 ft. of outreach, the ability to work 8'10" below grade, and a stable 12'11" x 13'6" operating footprint."

Hailey said that Genie also focused on operators’ needs by updating the machines’ user interface and making the machines easy to use. "These models are engineered to deliver a higher rental return on invested capital (rROIC) for our customers’ businesses," he said.

“The XC nomenclature also lets customers know that these new booms comply with the overload restriction guidelines in the proposed ANSI A92 and CSA B354 industry standards in North America, as well as the current European EN280 and Australian AS 1418.10 standards,” adds Hailey.

New Functionality
The new Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC booms say good-bye to the saw tooth working envelope of their predecessors. The operator’s experience is enhanced by the booms’ ability to automatically retract as they reach their operating envelope. That gives the new SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC a smooth, full range of motion throughout the machines’ entire working envelope—up to 105 ft. and 125'1" in the air, respectively, with 135° of vertical jib rotation.

Both booms are equipped with a 74-hp Tier 4F diesel engine and a redesigned heavy-duty generator. These features deliver consistent, reliable power to the machines’ drive and platform functions

Compact profile works nearly everywhere
Boasting the same set-up as the recently introduced Genie SX-135 XC boom, the mini XChassis axle system on the Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC provides excellent maneuverability on and off of confined jobsites without disturbing people or traffic.

Extending and retracting the axles between the 8'2" stowed position and 12'11" working footprint gives the Genie mini XChassis a narrow profile for transportation and a stable stance on the job. And, the easy-to-access axle design translates to low-effort maintenance.

The Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC booms are spec’d for maximum jobsite productivity, including their ability to be transported on a standard trailer without an over-width or over-height permit.

New technology contributes to efficient operation
The boom lifts' new technology helps operators be more efficient, so the Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC can complete high capacity jobs in a wider range of applications.

To increase performance, decrease set-up time, and improve overall productivity, all XC models boast the ability to do zero-load field calibration. These new Genie booms have a load-sense cell that continuously checks the weight in the platform to make sure the machine stays within the platform load limit. Operators will find the control layouts on the new Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC machines to be consistent and intuitive, making operation of the booms more straightforward than ever.

These boom models also share commonality in design, parts, and accessories, as well as serviceability benefits, including easy access to crucial service points, with all Genie products.
