The new Genie Lift Tools 13-foot work platform—measuring13 feet long, 3 feet wide, having a capacity of 600 pounds, and rated for two occupants—is designed for use with the Genie S-65 Xtra Capacity boom lift.
The new platform can be installed on any new and current Genie S-65 XC units and is available to order through the Genie aftermarket parts organization. The platform is currently certified for use in CE markets and will be ANSI certified by mid-2020. The new platform is engineered with 14 lanyard anchor points, and uses the same digital load sense system as all Genie XC booms.
To increase transportability of a Genie S-65 XC boom equipped with the new extra-large platform, the platform is designed with an off-center transport lock, which positions the swing at an offset in order to fit the platform on a standard-width trailer. The new platform also is compatible for use with standard foam-filled tires, but is not for use with Genie high float or TraX models. In addition, the platform is not compatible with any bolt-on aftermarket accessory that adds weight to the platform, but it is compatible with standard boom features, including the control box cover, power to the platform, and the Genie Lift Guar Contact Alarm system.
