Genie S-80 and S-85 Telescopic Booms
September 18, 2008

Significant changes on Genie’s S-80 and S-85 booms include: fixed width axles; an exclusive virtual pivot boom assembly; faster elevation time; improved software design for smoother, more comfortable operation; and intuitive operator and serviceability features. The design of the S-80 and S-85 was adapted from our high-selling S-60 and S-65 telescopic booms. The fixed width axles on the redesigned S-80 and S-85 booms give the machines an 8′ 2 total width both on the trailer and on the jobsite. They can be easily transported over the road without a special permit on a standard equipment trailer. Because the axles are fixed, the boom is ready to drive right off the trailer, maximizing productivity at the job site. The fixed axle system improves the machine’s durability and efficiency, as serviceability is easier and less costly by having fewer hydraulic components and moving parts.New to the S-80 and S-85 telescopic booms is the virtual pivot boom design.
