S-80 HF and S-85 HF

Telescopic Boom Lift

S-85-HF-1017-Hero

The Genie® S®-80 HF and S-85 HF high float telescopic booms are designed to perform heavy-lifting tasks in sensitive turf conditions, such as sand and turf ground conditions. Engineered to “float” on soft or delicate surfaces, the Genie S-80 and S-85 HF booms protect softer surfaces during operation that could be damaged by the more aggressive tread on regular rough terrain tires.

Overview

This new generation of Genie HF booms retain the productivity features that enhance customers’ ability to get work done quickly, including:

  • A virtual pivot primary boom that aligns the machine’s center of gravity for lower machine weight
    • 35,500 lb (16,103 kg) on the Genie S-80 HF model
    • 38,000 lb (17,237 kg) on the Genie S-85 HF model
  • 4WD and positive traction drive maintains equal power to all drive wheels
