Genie takes boom market to new heights
Terex aerial work platform business Genie has unveiled, what it claims, is the world’s biggest self-propelled boom, the SX-180.

Intended primarily for oil and gas industries, construction and industrial maintenance, the boom has a 54.9m vertical working height and a 24.4m horizontal reach. Equipped with a 2.44m by 0.91m basket, and a 3.05m rotating jib, the machine has a working capacity of 340kg.

The SX-180 can be driven at full height, with travel speeds varying depending on working height. With the boom in the stowed position the machine has a travel speed of 4km, dropping to just 0.17km/h when the boom is above 38.1m.

The X-design chassis extends and retracts to provide stability when lifting and narrow dimensions when travelling. Weighing in at just under 25tonnes, and with a stowed length of 12.98m, the SX-180 can be moved without any requirement for over-width or height permits.

“This X-chassis design is also used on our Genie ZX-135 articulating boom introduced this year,” said Scott Kreiger, senior product manager at Terex AWP. “This allows our big booms to share many design features providing parts and operating commonality.”
