Accéss Location d’Équipment, a Quebec-based aerial equipment rental company, will take delivery of the first new Genie SX-135XC self-propelled telescopic boomlift, which features 90 feet of outreach, 660-pound unrestricted lift capacity and the ability to work 19 feet, 8 inches below grade.
“It is exciting to be the first distributor with the Genie SX-135XC boom available for rent,” said Harold Dubé, president of Accéss Location. “Because of its heavy lift capacity, we anticipate this lift will be popular with our customers working in siding, window and masonry applications, as well as structural jobs. With its incredible below-grade reach, we also see a market opportunity with this machine in bridge inspections and work projects.”
The unit can lift operators to full platform height – 135 feet – in two-and-a-half minutes and can drive at full height. The unit has a working height of 141 feet and horizontal reach of 90 feet. The Genie Xtra Capacity (XC) unit is designed to comply with overload restriction guidelines in the proposed CSA B354 (Canada) and ANSI A92 (United States) industry standards. It includes a new low-maintenance load sense cell technology that monitors the weight on the platform and disables function if the load exceeds the platform load limit.
