The Genie ZX-135/70 articulating boom has been updated to include the new Genie mini XChassis axle design, a platform load sensing system, and a simple two-point calibration process to set up the primary boom, secondary boom, and jib bell crank in as little as 15 minutes. 

The new Genie mini XChassis axle design boasts two-thirds the footprint of the full-size version for excellent maneuverability on and around confined jobsites without distributing people or traffic. The new boom comes standard with new low-maintenance load sense cell technology — which monitors the weight in the platform and disables drive, steer and certain boom functions if the load exceeds the platform load limit. It can also be customized to meet customers’ jobsite needs with one of three hydraulically driven generator options: a 12-kW welder-ready package, 7.5-kW welder-ready package, or 3-kW AC generator for general needs.

Replacing the previous generation’s 6-point process, the 4.11 software on these newly redesigned Genie ZX-135/70 envelope-controlled machines now only need two calibration points: 1) When the boom is lowered to the stowed position, and 2) when the boom is fully raised, without the use of an inclinometer. Calibrations can now be done in as little as 15 minutes, saving customers up to an hour or more of set-up time each time they are ready to use this articulating boom.

The updated Genie ZX-135/70 boom is engineered with four-wheel drive with full-time positive traction to handle rough ground conditions to enhance the smoothness of the ride. Four-wheel steer with front-wheel, rear-wheel, crab- and coordinated- steer options available to provide additional maneuverability. It still features a maximum platform height of 135 feet; 69 feet, 9 inches of horizontal outreach; and 75 feet of up-and-over clearance, all accessible with a 600-pound platform capacity.
