Genie updates 20-metre articulating boom

12 Jun 14 Terex has added more than a metre of extra horizontal outreach to its 20-metre height Genie articulating boom lift.

The new Z-62/40 articulating boom lift will be unveiled at the Apex tradeshow in Amsterdam later this month (24-26 June).

It is an update of the Genie Z-60/34 with working height increased from 20.39m to 20.87m. Horizontal outreach is a maximum of 12.47m compared to 11.05m on the previous model.  Up and over clearance remains 7.80m with a maximum lift capacity of 227 kg (500 lbs).

The new boom lift offers zero rear tail swing and minimal front turntable tail swing in the stowed position and has a below ground reach of up to 1.68m.   

“Updating to Tier 4 Final compliance allowed us to completely re-envision our Z-60 boom and make it more competitive in today’s marketplace,” said Adam Hailey, booms product manager at Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “We have increased the height, outreach, transportability and key features while decreasing the overall weight of the product. This is sure to be a sought after machine with our customers.” 

Shipments are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2014.
