The company also introduced new aerial work platform (AWP) models that redefine the AWP category it first invented.

Genie Sx-135XCThe SX-135XC boom lift features 660 lbs./1,000 lbs. basket capacity and 10 feet longer horizontal reach than previous 135-foot reach models. Its load and tilt sensing technology has been designed to meet or exceed the load an tilt requirements very likely to adopted in the ANSI/CE standard in 2017 and be fully in place in 2018. The standard will require sensors to cut out boom operation if basket load exceeds the 660 or 1,000 lb. capacity. Similarly, the machine will not be operable if the AWP exceeds preset tilt parameters.
