Four Genie telescopic boom models from Terex are said to offer — as standard — greater platform capacity within a restricted outreach. Models S-60X, S-60XC, S-60 Trax, and S-80X have platform capacities up to 1,250 pounds, which is claimed to be the highest in the industry. Because of that capacity, the maximum number of occupants has increased to three. When the operator selects the appropriate platform capacity, outreach is automatically restricted. Terex says the unrestricted operating envelope will have the same 500-pound capacity and outreach as the existing machine.
