New rental opportunities

Genie is always looking for new ways to add value to its customers’ rental fleets, and with their increased lift capacity 300 kg (660 lb) unrestricted and 454 kg (1,000 lb) restricted), Genie® Xtra Capacity™ (XC™) boom lifts do precisely this — opening the door to new business opportunities. Today, thanks to our collaboration with renowned German company falch gmbh, and its multi worker 250 tool, for owners of Genie SX™-135 XC units, high-pressure water cleaning at height is a new possibility, further expanding this model’s already extensive field of application.

Launched at bauma Munich this spring, with the conditional approval of Terex AWP, the falch multi worker 250 can be installed for use on Genie SX-135 XC boom lifts. Equipped with this accessory, with its maximum working height of 43 m (141 ft) and industry-leading 27.43 m (89 ft 9 in) of horizontal reach, the Genie SX-135 XC boom lift becomes an ideal solution for shipyards (hull renovation and cleaning), general façade, wall and ceiling cleaning and renovation or removing excess concrete, plaster, paint, graffiti and corrosion at height.

Increasing operator efficiency and comfort, by comparison with hand-held lances, the multi worker 250 reduces recoil force to practically zero. Combining a high-pressure water jetting area of 2 m (6.56 ft) with a 30° vertical and horizontal range of swing, operators can set vertical and horizontal movements via an automatic electric controller directly from the boom platform. Safe to use, and up to four times more efficient than a hand held lance, this innovative device reduces labour costs by up to 70%. Available from falch, for further information about the multi worker 250, please contact your local Genie sales representative.
