Genie Adds Options for Z-62/40 Articulating Boom

Genie is offering three new options for its Z-62/40 articulating boom; the boom is now available with four-wheel steering, the Genie TraX track drive system and a Deutz 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4F diesel engine. These options offer more versatility for indoor and outdoor applications based on the work environment, terrain, climate and the job at hand.

Genie Z62/40 w traxFour-wheel steering enables operators to get to and from work areas efficiently, even over rough terrain, and provides additional maneuverability around the jobsite. This option provides improved steering responsiveness and precision, a smaller turning radius and increased maneuverability in tight or limited access areas. Four-wheel steering, combined with four-wheel drive and full-time active oscillating axles, increases wheel contact with the ground on irregular terrain, improving the smoothness of the ride.

When working on a site with mud, sand, snow or gravel, or just generally soft underfoot conditions, the wide, rubber tracks of the TraX system option, shown here, provide exceptional terrainability and lower contact pressure for reduced damage to sensitive ground surfaces. 

The optional 74-hp Tier 4F Deutz TD 2.9 water-cooled, 4-cylinder inline engine uses cooled, external exhaust gas recirculation with turbocharging. An oxidation catalytic converter offers maintenance-free operation under all application and ambient conditions. This engine package is required when using a Genie Z-62/40 boom equipped with the TraX track drive system option

The Z-62/40 boom lift has a working height of 67 ft 11in and maximum horizontal outreach of 40 ft 11 in. Up and over clearance is 25 ft 7 in with a maximum lift capacity of 500 lb. It also offers zero rear tail swing and minimal front turntable tail swing in the stowed position and has a below ground reach of up to 5 ft 6 in.

The Genie Z-62/40 articulating boom options will be available globally within Q2, 2016. You can find more information here
