Construction equipment: Continuing to offer versatility in the self-propelled large articulated boom market—120 ft. to 135 ft.—the Genie ZX-135/70 articulating boom offer customers the latest advancements in engineering design and technology. This Genie ZX-135/70 includes the Genie mini XChassis axle design, a platform load sensing system and a simple two-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’s Genie mini XChassis axle design extends and retracts the axles to and from the stowed position with a more compact footprint—8 ft., 2 in. x 13 ft., 6 in. 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 features two-thirds the footprint of the full-size version for maneuverability on and around confined jobsites without distributing people or traffic.
This boom has also been engineered to meet the overload restriction guidelines in the proposed ANSI A92 and CSA B354 industry standards in North America, as well as the current European EN280 and Australian AS 1418.10 standards.
