Z-45/25 Rough Terrain Boom
The Genie Z-45/25 rough terrain articulating boom lift is a redesigned, 45-foot boom that combines the latest performance technology with new service features to further enhance the most popular member of the Genie boom family. The new Z-45/25 RT currently is in production and available to the ANSI market. The CE version of this model is slated for production in Italy in mid-2013.
Key performance features include an updated drive system, which produces 24 percent more tractive effort than the previous model, resulting in greater terrainability, and provides true four-wheel drive and four-wheel braking. The Z-45/25 RT offers a maximum working height of 51 feet, 10 inches, and an up-and-over clearance of 23 feet, five inches. With a 500-pound lift capacity, the unit can position workers and tools exactly where they need to be. It also is a lighter weight machine than before, providing reduced floor loading and greater maneuverability and jobsite performance. Compared to its predecessor, overall weight has been reduced by up to 1,100 pounds for jib models and 575 pounds for non-jib models.
The new Z-45/25 rough terrain boom lift also offers owners simplified serviceability and lower cost of ownership. Larger doors and swing-out trays provide access to the front and back of the engine compartment, as well as to filters and electrical components for faster maintenance and troubleshooting. Cost of ownership is reduced through less-expensive replacement parts, such as the unit’s smaller standard tires, and increased parts and component commonality across similar Genie booms.
