NEW GENIE® SX-105 XC™ AND SX-125 XC TELESCOPIC BOOMS OFFERS
HEAVY LIFTING WITH A SMOOTH RANGE OF MOTION
New units update the popular Genie S™-105 and S-125 models

 

REDMOND, WA (7th March 2017) – Updating the legacy Genie® S™-105 and S-125 telescopic boom lifts, the new Genie SX-105 XC™ and SX-125 XC booms are engineered to work in more applications that require higher capacities. With industry-leading dual lift capacity — 300 kg (660-lb) / 454 kg(1,000-lb) — and a smooth operating envelope, these new XC boom lifts are a perfect fit for heavy lifting in the construction and maintenance of stadium and sports arenas, gas and oil refineries, industrial and telecommunications applications.

 

“Priced right and offering a third more lift capacity than standard, these 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. We also updated these machines’ user interface to focus on simplicity and ease of use for operators. Both models are engineered for productivity to deliver higher rental returns on invested capital (rROIC) to support our customers’ business,” says Adam Hailey, Genie Director of Product Marketing, Terex AWP.

 

“The XC nomenclature also lets customers know that these new booms comply with 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,” adds Hailey.

 

New Design Features and stable footprint
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 these booms’ ability to automatically retract as they reach their operating envelope, giving the new SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC models a smooth full range of motion throughout their entire working envelope — up to 34 m (111 ft 2 in) and 40.1 m (131 ft 2 in) working height, and a horizontal outreach from 22.86 (75ft) to 24.38 m (80 ft) with 135° of vertical jib rotation and the ability to work 2.69 m (8 ft 10 in) below grade.

 

Their Genie Mini XChassis™ axle system is also a new feature that combines jobsite stability, and a footprint of 3.94 m (12 ft 11 in) x 4.11 m (13 ft 6 in), with axles that extend and retract to and from the stowed position 2.49 m (8 ft 2 in) retracted or 3.94 m (12 ft 11 in) extended to offer a narrow profile for transport as well as offering easy access for low-effort maintenance.

 

Both booms are equipped with a powerful emissions-compliant 74-hp (55 kW) Tier 4F/Stage IIIB diesel engine and a redesigned heavy-duty generator. These features deliver consistent, reliable power to the machines’ drive and platform functions

 

New Technology Increases Operational Efficiency

Thanks to the new technology incorporated into their design, the Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC booms enable operators to work more efficiently and productively to complete higher capacity jobs in a wider range of applications than similar machines by other brands. Offering reduced set-up times and improved productivity in a wider working zone, all Genie XC models boast zero-load field calibration thanks to 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 of the new Genie SX-105 XC and SX-125 XC boom lifts to be consistent and intuitive, making machine operation even more straightforward than before.

 

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

 

These new booms will be on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG on the Terex booth, Gold Lot #3382.
