The Highest Reaching Self-Propelled Boom In The World – Now at AAH
AUSTRALIAN Access Hire has continued its investment in big booms with the purchase of Australia’s tallest boom lift – the Genie SX-180.
- Reaches 54.86 metres
- Weighs less than 25 tonnes
- Self-propelled, even at full height
- Takes less than five minutes to reach full extension
The self-propelled SX-180 provides a maximum platform height of 54.86 metres (180 ft) and up to 24.38 metres (80 ft) of outreach.
AAH’s Managing Director Trent Hogan said the SX-180 was perfect for customers who’ve previously had to resort to truck-mounted aerial lifts and cranes with man baskets to reach required heights.
“We are extremely excited to receive this new industry-leading super boom, and we are very proud to be one of the first companies in Australia to own one,” he said.
“It’s perfectly suited for a huge range of industries – construction, maintenance, telecommunications, gas and oil refineries.
Another one of its strongest benefits is its ability to be driven at full height, at a steady 0.3 km/h.
Without needing to retract and redeploy the boom each time it moves provides an efficiency that will save operators a lot of time.
Also Genie’s X-chassis extends to provide stability during operation. It can then retract to a narrow profile for transport.
It weighs less than 25 tonnes.
The self-levelling two-person platform has an unrestricted safe working load of 340kg and a 3.05 metre (10ft) rotating jib for precise positioning of the platform.
With a fleet of trucks providing nationwide delivery, AAH can deliver the SX-180 anywhere in Australia – even on a tight deadline.
