Terex rolls out new Genie lifts

The updated Genie ZX-135/70 boom is engineered with four-wheel drive with full-time positive traction to handle rough ground conditions to enhance the ride

April 2017

Terex Corporation, a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing products, has introduced a new generation of its Genie ZX-135/70 Boom lift.

Continuing to offer industry-leading versatility in the self-propelled large articulated boom market – 120 ft to 135 ft platform height, the Genie ZX-135/70 articulating boom has been updated to offer customers the latest advancements in engineering design and technology, said a statement from Terex.

It includes the new Genie mini XChassis axle design, a platform load sensing system and a simple 2-point calibration process to set up the primary boom, secondary boom and jib bell crank in as little as 15 minutes.

Designed with transportability in mind, the Genie ZX-135/70 boom now features the new Genie mini XChassis axle design, which extends and retracts the axles to and from the stowed position with a more compact footprint – 8 ft 2 inches x 13 ft 6 inches (retracted) or 12 ft 11 in x 13 ft 6 in (extended) – to provide both stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport.

Similar in design to full-size X-Chassis expanding axle on the previous generations of this machine, the mini XChassis system boasts two-thirds the footprint of the full-size version for excellent maneuverability on and around confined jobsites without distributing people or traffic, it stated.

This boom has also been engineered to meet the overload restriction guidelines in the current European EN280 and Australian AS 1418.10 standards, as well as in the proposed Ansi A92 and CSA B354 industry standards in North America, said the statement from Terex.

To comply, all new Genie ZX-135/70 booms come standard with new low-maintenance load sense cell technology – which monitors the weight in the platform and disables drive, steer and certain boom functions if the load exceeds the platform load limit, it added.

Leading the large articulated boom market, the Genie ZX-135/70 lift still features a maximum working height of 141 ft, 69 ft 9 in of horizontal outreach and a 75 ft of up-and-over clearance - all accessible with a 272 kg platform capacity.

The Telescoping Jib-Extend jib on this boom continues to be distinctive, providing exceptional access by extending from a retracted length of 12 ft to an extended length of 20 ft. This design includes 360-deg continuous rotation turntable, 160-deg platform rotation for fast, easy positioning and 110-deg vertical range of motion. This design still provides access to “up, over, and in” applications inaccessible by a traditional jib.

According to Terex, the updated Genie ZX-135/70 boom is engineered with four-wheel drive with full-time positive traction to handle rough ground conditions to enhance the smoothness of the ride.
