Genie Highlights New 13-Foot Platform at CONEXPO

Designed for use on jobsites around the world, the new Genie Lift Tools 13-ft platform affords less work time interruptions so boom lift operators can get more work done, more rapidly and more comfortably. Built for use in conjunction with Genie S-65 Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lift, this new Genie platform measures 13-ft long by 3-ft wide, has a capacity of 600 lbs and is rated for two occupants, offering operators the benefit of accessing a much larger working area quickly and easily. It can be installed on any new and current Genie S-65 XC units and is available to order through the Genie aftermarket parts organization via This platform is currently certified for use in CE markets and will be ANSI certified by mid-2020.

“For boom lifts working in constrained work areas, this new extra-large Genie platform enables operators to spend less time maneuvering the equipment in tight, restricted access spaces,” says Amalija Kopac, Genie product manager, Terex AWP. “The larger platform also gives operators a more comfortable work space for long, uninterrupted work. The Genie Lift Tools 13-ft platform is an ideal accessory for use in painting, masonry and shipyard applications.”

The Genie Lift Tools 13-ft platform is engineered with 14 lanyard anchor points, compared to eight points on the 8-ft platform, to take full advantage of the larger work space. And for consistency within the Genie brand’s product offerings, this new accessory utilizes the same digital load sense system as all Genie XC booms.

To increase transportability of a Genie S-65 XC boom equipped with this new extra-large platform, the Genie Lift Tools 13-ft accessory is custom designed with an off-center transport lock. The off-center transport lock positions the swing at an offset in order to fit the platform onto a standard width trailer for shipping. “To increase the rROIC on this new platform, as well as efficiency of transport from job to job, operators should keep the off-center transport lock with the equipment delivery truck and no oversized permits will be required,” says Kopac.

The new Genie Lift Tools 13-ft platform is compatible for use with standard foam-filled tires. It is not for use with Genie high float (HF) or TraX models. In addition, this 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 Guard Contact Alarm system.
