Terex Aerial Work Platforms
Terex AWP is offering four new Genie telescopic boomlifts, the S-60X, the S-60XC, the S-60Trax and the S-80X (pictured), all with restricted platform capacities up to 1,250 pounds. By increasing work platform capacity, the maximum number of occupants has increased to three, thus increasing productivity. Other benefits include a ramped boom-control system providing smoother boom functions because of angle sensors and limit switches, and a virtual-pivot primary boom that aligns the machine's center of gravity, resulting in lower machine weight. A simplified hydraulic system enhances smooth motion for users, while cable-sequenced boom assembly facilitates inspection.
