The Jib-Extend telescoping jib on the Genie Z-135/70 self-propelled articulating boom extends the unit's reach from 12 feet to 20 feet

Genie Industries

The Jib-Extend telescoping jib on the Genie Z-135/70 self-propelled articulating boom extends the unit's reach from 12 feet to 20 feet and provides a 110-degree vertical range of motion to reach up, over and in applications inaccessible by traditional booms. It also includes the Genie Fast Mast system that allows operators to lower the platform to ground level without having to lower the secondary boom. The Z-135/70 is designed with the XChassis expanding axle system for enhanced stability and flexibility for easy transport. The unit has a working height of 141 feet, a horizontal reach of 69 feet, 9 inches, an up-and-over clearance of 75 feet, 6 inches, and a lift capacity of 600 pounds.

The SJ 40T and SJ 45T (pictured) boomlifts feature an analog-based control system, relay-based electrical system and axle-based 4-wheel-drive system. With no wheel motors or torque hubs, there are no hydraulic hoses left unprotected from jobsite hazards, and the number of potential hydraulic leak sites is reduced. The SJ 40T and SJ 45T also feature Skyjack's direction-sensing controls, which ensure the boomlift will always drive and steer with respect to the operator rather than the orientation of the base.
