A new boom lift coming out of Europe may make waves in the US in the next year or so.
Genie will be introducing the new Z™-62/40 articulating boom lift during the APEX tradeshow. This popular convention in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, will take place at the end of June.
This new lift is an upgrade over Genie’s previous model, the Z™-60/34 articulating boom lift.
With a working height now at over 66 feet and an outreach distance (horizontal) of nearly 41 feet, this lift will be popular with construction companies, painters, maintenance workers and more. And even with all of these new and improved features, this new Genie boom lift weighs just 21,900 pounds – much less than other similar aerial lifts. This lift also can be stored in compact places, thanks to a redesigned frame.
The lift has already grabbed the attention of industry experts. “Updating to Tier 4 Final compliance allowed us to completely re-envision our Z-60 boom and make it more competitive in today’s marketplace,” said Adam Hailey, Terex Aerial Work Platforms, Booms Product Manager. “This is sure to be a sought after machine with our customers.”
The Z-62/40 also has 4-wheel drive and a proportional control system to ensure smooth, easy to use operation. But it can also handle heavy-duty workloads. The Z-62/40 boom lift is available with sand tires and four-wheel steering option. By the end of this year, it will also have an option with a Genie four-point TraX™ track drive system for solid handling over tough terrain.
This lift will be available in the US starting in July or August, so be on the lookout!
