ZX-135/70 Articulating Boom Lift


February 13, 2013 - Equipment

The Genie ZX-135/70 articulating boom offers industry-leading versatility in the self-propelled 120-135 foot market. The boom features a maximum platform height of 135 ft., 69 ft. 9 in of horizontal outreach, and 75 ft. of up-and-over clearance.

The ZX-135/70 features a new and exclusive X-Chassis design, which provides a wider footprint and reduces occupied floor pressure by 30%. The boom lift’s axles extend to a 17 ft. width and retract to 8 ft., requiring no over-width highway permits. The robust, box-section axles pivot from vertical mounting pins, providing easy and reliable machine set-up, with excellent hose and hard line protection throughout.

The new extending jib extends from a retracted length of 12 ft. to an extended length of 20 ft. This new design provides access to “up, over, and in” applications inaccessible by a traditional jib.

Platform controls have been updated with new toggle switches and a tactile membrane surface, and feature proportional Hall-effect joysticks for all major functions. The advantages of Hall-effect joysticks are that they have fewer moving parts, and all adjustments are stored on one control card at the ground control station. The new tri-axis joystick controls the primary boom’s up/down, extend/retract and turntable rotate movements, while a second tri-axis joystick controls the jib’s up/down, extend/retract and platform rotate movements.

The self-supporting cable track has been strengthened with updated hose and cable runs and is capable of supporting platform options such as the heavy-duty welder, weld leads, platform work lights, and/or air lines.

The Genie ZX-135 articulating boom lift provides easy access for numerous serviceability points, with hard lines for increased protection.  New angle sensors feature larger resolution margins for improved calibration stability.
