Genie has added three options to its 20.87m working height Z-62/40 articulating boom.

The machine, with 12.47m outreach is now available with four-wheel steering, Genie TraX track drive system, and a Deutz 55 kW turbocharged Tier 4F diesel engine.

Four wheel steering provides operators with the ability to steer the front wheels and the rear wheels at the same time, resulting in improved steering responsiveness and precision, a smaller turning radius and increased maneuverability in tight or limited access areas. This is combined with the Z-62/40’s existing four wheel steering and full-time active oscillating axles.

Unlike traditional steel tracked crawler booms, the Genie Z-62/40 TraX machine can be used in most applications like a wheeled machine. The Genie four-point TraX track drive system option provides terrainability and lower contact pressure. The TraX unit has wide, rubber tracks for increased flotation and traction.

The 55 kW Tier 4F Deutz TD 2.9 water-cooled, 4-cylinder inline engine boasts cooled, external exhaust gas recirculation with turbocharging. It has a DVERT oxidation catalytic converter (DOC) for maintenance-free operation under all application and ambient conditions. The engine provides the boom lift with enough power to get the job done, as well as the ability to work more efficiently in higher altitudes. This required when using the Z-62/40 with the TraX track drive system option.

The options will be available globally during the second quarter of 2016.
