New ANSI/CSA Articulating Genie Z-33/18 Boom Lift
Genie has introduced its first entirely new compact, lightweight electric Z-boom lift to the North American market at The Rental Show in New Orleans. Designed for both indoor and outdoor maintenance applications, the new Genie Z-33/18 boom lift is well-suited for tasks on sensitive surfaces where space or floor load is restricted.
This new versatile articulating Genie boom lift model weighs only 8080 lbs and offers a ground clearance of 5.9 in. Particularly well-suited to applications on sensitive surfaces inside airports, shopping centers and theaters - in addition to routine outdoor maintenance tasks, the new Z-33/18 boom lift includes features to help increase efficiency on jobsites where space is tight. Its key features include solid non-marking tires, long working cycles due to low-consumption AC drive transmission, a tight turning radius for excellent maneuverability, the ability to drive at full height, plus the benefits of the Genie FastMast boom system that shortens ground-to-top lifting time.
“This is a completely new Genie model designed to offer a great combination of lightweight, compact dimensions and ‘up-and-over’ lift capabilities combined with powerful drive motors,” said Karen Stash, Senior Director, Global Product Management and Marketing, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “It is truly a new generation of Genie boom lift that offers features and capabilities suited for customers all over the world.”
Featuring a compact 6 ft 3 in wheelbase providing a gradeability of up to 30 percent, the Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom lift offers a working height of 38 ft 10 in, a horizontal reach of 18 ft, 3 in and an up-and-over clearance of 14 ft 1 in. The 3 ft 10 in wide by 2 ft 6 in long platform, supports weights of up to 440 lbs.
“The Z-33 boom lift is an excellent machine for the rapidly growing warehousing sector,” said Christine Zeznick, Associate Product Manager, Terex AWP. “Its high efficiency and excellent maneuverability allow it to meet the needs of a variety of lightweight application job sites.”
To make transport easier, this compact unit’s boom stows down to only 4 ft 11in. in width and 13 ft 8 in. in length. Drive speed is an efficient 3.7 mph, which when combined with a 48V DC 315 Ah boom power source leads to long lasting performance.
In addition to easily accessible machine components, the new Genie Z-33/18 boom lift features mechanical switches that are conveniently protected within the boom to avoid damage.
Distinguishing the next generation of Genie products from previous models, the new Z-33/18 boom lift also includes the new Genie product design to combine a fresh new look and feel with improved ergonomic design features.
This new Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom model will be available in North America in July, 2015.
