Innovative Design for S™-80 and S™-85 Telescopic Booms both S™-80 and S™-85 telescopic booms feature the Genie exclusive virtual pivot boom design. The primary benefit is its ability to keep the weight of the boom over the chassis' centre of gravity as it elevates. This eliminates the need for extra counterweight and keeps the overall weight of the machine down for use in more sensitive terrains.
- Fixed width axles allow the boom to drive right off the trailer and go straight to work, maximising productivity at the job site. Serviceability is easier and less costly too by having fewer hydraulic components and moving parts.
- The fixed width axles on S™-80 and S™-85 booms give the machines a 2.49 m (8 ft 2 in) total width which means they can be easily transported over the road and on the jobsite
- Enhanced serviceability and maintenance
- For added flexibility, the articulating jib boom option offers an extra 1.52 m (5 ft) of horizontal or vertical reach and 135˚ of working range.
