To adapt to today’s widespread need to enable people to work at height safely with increasingly heavy loads using a single machine, Genie® Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lifts have been introduced, which are designed to work in more applications that require higher capacities. Easy to spot on rental yards and jobsites, the new generation of Genie booms has an ‘XC’ designation in their nomenclature.
“Industry-wide, there is a mix of high- and dual-capacity machines,” said Adam Hailey, Genie Director of Product Management, Terex AWP. “This can be challenging, particularly when spec’ing a project that requires lifting heavy loads. Responding to customer demand worldwide for higher capacity aerial work platforms, the new generation of Genie XC boom lifts are designed to exceed customers’ lift capacity expectations.”
