The Genie SX-180 self-propelled telescopic boom lift has vertical reach of180 feet and horizontal reach of 80 feet. The largest of its kind in the market, the boom lift is suited for applications in the oil and gas industries, commercial construction, industrial construction and maintenance, and general maintenance.

The 8 feet by 3 feet platform has an  unrestricted capacity of 750 lbs. The 10-feet, 180 degree rotating jib positions workers and gear exactly where they are needed.

The machine is designed to be driven at full height. The newly designed X-chassis extends and retracts to provide both stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport. The boom lift’s stowed dimensions are 10 feet in height and 8 feet, 2 inches wide. With a stowed length of 42 feet, 7 inches, the 54,000 lb.-machine requires no over width or over height permits, allowing it to be easily transported on a truck.

New platform controls consist of toggle switches and fully proportional jib and boom controls. The ground controls offer an updated function diagram layout and tactile membrane switches. Customers may choose from either a Deutz or Perkins engine. A 50-gallon fuel tank provides longer run time, and a 7.5 KW generator are standard equipment. 

Genie introduced the boom lift at the bauma 2013 tradeshow in Munich, Germany, in April. It will be available worldwide in the second half of 2013.
