Load-Sense Improves Boom Safety

Booms need to meet overload restriction guidelines and industry standards in North America, Europe, and Australia. Do yours comply? Many new booms are coming 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.

One such example is the Genie ZX-135/70 articulating boom, which has been updated to offer the latest advancements in engineering design and technology. This new generation includes the Genie mini XChassis axle design, a platform load sensing system, and a two-point calibration process to set up the primary boom, secondary boom, and jib bell crank in as little as 15 minutes.

Designed with transportability in mind, the Genie ZX-135/70 boom features the new Genie mini XChassis axle design, which extends and retracts the axles to and from the stowed position with a more compact footprint to provide both stability on the job and a narrow profile for transport.

The updated Genie ZX-135/70 can be customized to meet jobsite needs with one of three hydraulically driven generator options. In addition, the boom is updated to reflect the latest Genie design language of an all-black chassis and an updated blue and gray color scheme.

This is just one example of improvements being made to boom lifts to be used at the jobsite. There are many options for contractors to choose from.
