Genie SX-180 Telescopic Boom Aerial Work Platform

January 17, 2014

The Genie SX-180 self-propelled telescopic boom aerial work platform, the largest of its kind in the market, is suited for applications in the oil and gas industries, commercial construction, industrial construction and maintenance, and general maintenance.

The unit has a 180-foot vertical reach and 80-foot horizontal reach. The 8-foot by 3-foot working platform has an unrestricted capacity of 750 pounds. The 180-degree rotating jib positions workers and gear exactly where they are needed.

It can be driven at full height. Travel speeds vary based on boom position, and range from 2.5 mph with the boom in the stowed position, 0.4 mph below 125 feet, and 0.1 mph above 125 feet.                                                  

The X-chassis extends and retracts to provide both stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport, Genie says. The boom lift’s stowed dimensions are 10 feet high and 8 feet 2 inches wide. With a stowed length of 42 feet 7 inches, the 54,000-pound machine requires no over width or over height permits, allowing it to be transported on a truck. The X-chassis design provides commonality of parts and operation with the ZX-135 articulating boom aerial work platform the company introduced last year.
