The Genie 13-ft. (4 m) platform for boom lifts is designed for raising workers, equipment and materials in jobsites. The platform adds more than 60% of additional space for work at height. The 13-ft. (4 m) platform is now available for use on three Genie XC (Xtra Capacity) boom lifts in North America and the EMEAI region (Europe, Middle East, Africa and India).
“This super-sized platform means fewer lift cycles and less time spent repositioning the boom lift, which increases productivity for work-at-height tasks like building renovations and painting, or window cleaning and cladding, which require work across an expanded area,” says Logan Wood, Genie associate product manager. “In addition to providing more room to move and work, the expanded platform also means operators have more space, increasing comfort.”
Compatible with Genie S-45 XC, S-65 XC and S-85 XC boom lifts, the 13-ft. (4 m) platform is for tasks that involve an extensive working area, as well as jobsites with limited space to maneuver on the ground. The extra space in the platform also provides access to twice as much work area with the same number of boom movements, compared with a standard sized 8-ft. (2.44 m) platform.
After following instructions to install the 13-ft. (4 m) platform and calibrating the machine, the S-45 XC, S-65 XC and S-85 XC can take up to two workers to height and deliver a 600-lb. (272 kg) lift capacity. Additionally, operators can utilize other features on Genie’s XC machines, including automatic envelope control, working curve and active load sense.
For equipment owners, because the 13-ft. (4 m) platform is compatible with multiple boom lift models and can be swapped out with the machine’s standard platform on the same day it is needed, the super-sized platform serves as a way to increase the versatility of boom lifts in their fleet.
An off-center transport lock allows the machine to be transported on a standard trailer in most countries.
