Bring Your Heavy Tools
Responding to customer demand worldwide for higher capacity aerial work platforms, Genie®Xtra Capacity™ (XC) booms are designed to work in more applications that require higher capacities. All Genie XC™ booms offer the benefits of a dual-envelope design to provide an unrestricted platform capacity of 660 lb (300 kg) and a restricted capacity of 1,000 lb (454 kg). This reduces the number of lift cycles and amount of equipment needed to get tools and materials to aerial worksites — doing more with a single unit saves time and increases productivity.
The Genie XC interactive tool provides users with the opportunity to choose different materials, attachments and operators of various sizes to “place” into and on the virtual boom platform. The interactive then calculates the weight of materials, attachments and operators. If the load capacity of platform exceeds the machine’s rated capacity, the virtual boom lift will not lift the load, highlighting how new industry-mandated platform load sense technology will disable machine function if the load is above the platform load limit. If the load capacity of the platform is within the machine’s rated capacity, the virtual boom lift will be available to operate within its operating envelope.
