Terex Lifting Australia introduces the new Genie Z-33/18, a revolutionary new range of compact and lightweight electric boom lifts designed for versatile lifting applications in commercial spaces.

To be showcased at the upcoming Hire and Rental Industry Association (HRIA) Convention in Adelaide from 28th to 30th April, 2015, the Genie Z-33/18 boom lift is ideal for both indoor and outdoor maintenance applications.

Kurt Kinder, Sales Manager QLD & PNG, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) explains that the new Genie articulating boom lift is well-suited to applications on sensitive surfaces such as inside airports, shopping centres, theatres, museums and galleries in addition to routine outdoor maintenance tasks. The Z-33 boom lift is also an excellent machine for the rapidly growing warehousing sector.

The latest Genie model combines superior features with ‘up-and-over’ lift capabilities and powerful drive motors, helping increase efficiency on space-constrained jobsites.

Key features of the new Genie Z-33/18 electric boom lifts include solid non-marking or multi-surface tyres for safe use on polished floors; AC drive transmission powered by a low-consumption battery; tight inside turning radius with zero tail swing for excellent manoeuvrability; ability to drive at maximum height; Genie FastMast boom system shortening ground-to-top lifting time; and 48V DC 315 Ah battery power source for long-lasting performance.

The Genie Z-33/18 boom lift’s compact 1.91m wheelbase provides a gradeability of 30 percent, a working height of 11.84m, a horizontal reach of 5.56m, and an up-and-over clearance of 4.34m. The 1.17m wide by 0.76m long platform supports weights of up to 199.6kg.

Describing the Genie as a truly new generation of boom lifts offering features and capabilities suited for customers in Australia, Kinder added that its high efficiency and excellent manoeuvrability allow it to meet the needs of a variety of lightweight applications at diverse job sites.

The practical design of the compact unit allows the boom to stow down to only 1.50m in width and 4.17m in length for easy transport. Drive speed is an efficient 5.95kph. In addition to easily accessible machine components, the new Genie Z-33/18 boom lift features mechanical switches that are conveniently protected within the boom to avoid damage.

The Z-33/18 boom lift also includes the new Genie product design combining a fresh new look and feel with improved ergonomic design features.

Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom lifts will be available in Australia in Quarter 3, 2015.
