Genie made a significant addition to its product line-up by introducing its first entirely new compact, lightweight electric Z-boom lift at the APEX tradeshow in The Netherlands.

Designed for both indoor and outdoor maintenance applications, the new Genie Z-33/18 boom lift is notably well-suited to tasks on sensitive surfaces where space is restricted.

This new versatile articulating Genie boom lift model weighs only 8025 lbs and offers a ground clearance of 15 cm (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 lift includes features to help increase efficiency on jobsites where space is tight. Its key features include solid non-marking or multi-surface tyres as option, long working cycles due to low-consumption AC drive transmission, a tight turning radius for excellent maneuverability, the ability to drive at maximum height, plus the benefits of the Genie FastMast boom system that shortens ground-to-top lifting time.

“This is a completely new model designed from the ground up to offer a great combination of lightweight, compact dimensions and ‘up-and-over’ lift capabilities combined with powerful drive motors. Our customers are demanding versatile boom lifts for sensitive indoor tasks that are also capable of meeting general outdoor maintenance applications,” says Carlo Forini, director of business development & product management, Terex AWP EMEAR. “Although this product was developed for the European market, it is a new generation of Genie boom lift that offers features and capabilities suited for customers all over the world.”

Featuring a compact 6.3-ft wheelbase providing a gradeability of 30%, the Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom lift offers a working height of 39.4 ft, a horizontal reach of 18.3 ft and an up-and-over clearance of 14.1 ft. In addition to a 2.6-ft-long x 3.1-ft-wide platform, the man basket supports weights of up to 440 lbs.

To make transport easier, this compact unit’s boom stows down to only 4.11 ft in width and 13.5 ft in length. Drive speed is an efficient 3.7 mph combined with a 48V DC 315 Ah boom power source.

Genie is known for designing its products with serviceability in mind, and this product is no different. 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. Thanks to the common control system used across the entire Genie boom lift family, technicians will also be able to apply their existing knowledge of Genie equipment to help make trouble-shooting and maintenance faster and easier.

This new Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom model will be available across Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Africa (EMEAR) in Q4 2014. Availability for other parts of the world is scheduled for Q1 2015.
